I meant to do this yesterday but never got around to it and I’m heading out the door shortly so won’t do it properly now but not to worry.
It’s just to provide a quick update on a few things in this week’s Mayo News. The first is an update (here) on injuries following the final round of group matches in the club championship last weekend. The short version of this is that, thankfully, almost everyone appears to be okay.
David Clarke’s absence from Ballina’s match was apparently precautionary and Diarmuid O’Connor’s wrist injury also kept him sidelined but it sounds as if both could be okay for the final. Michael Conroy’s long-running achilles problem is still at him, though, and he’s probably a doubt for Hyde Park. Aside from this trio, it looks like we’ll be picking from a full deck.
The paper also has a summary of where things stand on the club championships now that the music has stopped until our inter-county season is over and confirmation that the draw for the quarter-finals and the relegation play-offs in both the senior and intermediate championships won’t take place until after the Connacht final.
Back to inter-county, this time at minor level, where the paper has an interview with minor manager Enda Gilvarry, who is gearing up for a do-or-die Connacht MFC clash with Galway this coming Saturday evening at MacHale Park (throw-in 6.30pm). It’s the third year in succession where our minors have been pitted against Galway in a knockout situation and there’ll be plenty more on this one, of course, between now and then.
See, told you it was only a quick one. Gotta dash.
