Connacht three-in-a-row for terrific Tooreen

The hurlers of Tooreen have done it again. For the third year in a row and for the fourth time in six years, Tooreen this afternoon captured the Connacht Intermediate hurling title.

The weekend’s games

The world keeps turning. As it always does, as it must. The last while, when I’ve been inactive here, hasn’t been kind for Mayo clubs. All three of the men’s teams fell at the first hurdle in their respective Connacht club Championships, all to Galway opposition.

The dust is settling on the weekend’s county final action, one which saw Westport finally seal a historic first ever Moclair Cup title success, while Ballyhaunis and Islandeady claimed county titles at Intermediate and Junior respectively and, with that, progression back to higher level Championship football next year.

Results round-up

Well, that was a cracking weekend of club football, with thrills, spills, last-second scores, a penalty shootout and history made. The only place to start is, of course, with the history makers. They’re the women footballers of Burrishoole who, appearing in their first ever LFGA Senior county final, this afternoon at Bekan dethroned champions Knockmore to claim the title. The […]
