Connacht three-in-a-row for Tooreen

Tooreen’s tremendous journey continues. This afternoon at Athleague – in some ways, it’s now the team’s spiritual home-from-home, so often they’ve played and won there in recent years – they won their third successive Connacht Intermediate hurling Championship title. They prevailed in this one by beating Ballinderreen of Galway by 0-21 to 0-19 in what was a cracking provincial title […]

122 years now in the results archive

Tooreen gunning for Connacht glory once again

The hurlers of Tooreen take centre-stage from a Mayo GAA perspective this weekend. The club, which back in January this year, contested an All-Ireland Intermediate club hurling Championship final where they lost out narrowly to Limerick’s Monaleen, are on the march once again and on Sunday they’re aiming to retain their Connacht IHC title. Athleague is the venue for Sunday’s […]

Lahardane through on penalties, Kilmeena edged out

Penalties were central to the contrasting fortunes of Lahardane MacHales and Kilmeena today, who were both in action against Galway opposition in provincial club semi-finals. The afternoon ended in joy for Lahardane, who prevailed in a penalty shootout, while a missed penalty for Kilmeena in the dying seconds of their game was central to their defeat. Lahardane were up against […]

Ballina bow out

Ballina Stephenites this afternoon crashed out of the Connacht club SFC, losing out to Galway champions Corofin. The match was played in windswept conditions, standard fare at Pearse Stadium, where Corofin handled the conditions far better, bagging fourteen scores from play to win by 0-16 to 0-12. The Stephenites were forced to field without the injured Padraig O’Hora and joint-captain […]
