Kilmeena’s big game + two worthwhile causes

This is just a quick one, to draw your attention to a few different things.

First, for those interested in following Kilmeena’s All-Ireland JFC semi-final against Offaly’s Clonbullogue tomorrow but who can’t make it to Pearse Park for it, you’ll be glad to know that the match is going to be streamed live. Longford GAA TV are providing the stream – details on that here. There will also be live radio commentary of the game on Midwest, which throws in at 1.30pm.

Also on tomorrow, at the Connacht GAA Centre of Excellence Air Dome, is some mouth-watering football action in aid of the Kieran Cawley Fundraising drive. This is an initiative aimed at securing access to the best possible care for the Crossmolina native who suffers from an extremely rare form of cancer. Further details on the evening at the Dome, including team details for the two matches due to be played as well as a link to the Go Fund Me page for this very worthy cause are here.

Another fundraiser worth a mention is the Hurling for Hope initiative, spearheaded by Keith Higgins and a number of other involved with Ballyhaunis GAA. They’re aiming to raise money in support of two charities, the Mayo/Roscommon Hospice Foundation and the Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association. More details on Hurling for Hope are here and you can make a donation to the cause here.

Finally, back to the football, we’ve another great bonus podcast episode for our Patreon club members, which went online earlier today. Mike and Ed have a really interesting chat on it with ex-Donegal player Eamon McGee and they also run the rule over the Mayo team selection for Sunday. This episode, as well as all our other bonus content, is available to podcast club members on Patreon and you can join the club, at a cost of just €5 plus VAT per month, here.

  1. Great to see the fundraising getting the shout out. It would be nice to think that if we ever needed a bit of help ourselves that it would be there for us and there would be people there for us.
    The very best of luck to Kieran. The fundraising to date has been going well and I hope that his treatment is a big success.
    Well done to everyone involved in the fundraisers at the weekend.

  2. Great performance by Kilmeena, now it’s onwards to Croke Park to play Kerry’s Gneeveguilla in the final. That’s on next Sunday, 1.30pm throw-in.

  3. Well done to Kilmeena and good to see Jack Carney showing a nice bit of consistency in his performances. Kicked 3 points from midfield again today. Seems like a well balanced side. Hopefully they bring home the silverware.
