Results round-up

I was pretty much off the grid for the whole weekend so it’s time for a quick recap on the results of all the games involving teams from the county over the last few days.

The Minors’ win over Galway at Tuam Stadium on Friday evening has been well covered at this stage, including on our Final Whistle podcast show for club members, in which Mike was joined by Colm Boyle and where we also hear post-match reaction from joint manager David Heaney.

The win leaves the lads well positioned to make the knockout stages of the provincial Championship. A win over Leitrim on Friday evening will guarantee them at least a place in the semi-finals.

Yesterday the county’s Senior hurlers got back to winning ways in the Rackard Cup. They beat Louth by 3-22 to 0-17 to keep alive their hopes of advancing to the knockout stages of hurling’s fourth tier Championship.

Earlier in the the day the county’s U17 hurlers also tasted victory. They beat Westmeath by 3-18 to 0-15 in the Celtic Challenge.

Also yesterday the county’s U20 footballers captured the Philly McGuinness Cup, when they turned the tables on Leitrim, who’d got the better of them in the Connacht Championship round-robin series, beating them by 3-11 to 0-9 in Mohill.

The U20s now advance to a national B competition, where hopefully they can make up for the disappointment of the recently-concluded Connacht Championship campaign. The fact that yesterday they beat one of the two teams who defeated them in the round-robin series while the two teams who didn’t beat them then are the ones who contest this year’s Connacht final. Them’s the breaks, I guess.

Finally, there was disappointment today for the county’s Minor camogie team (pictured above). They lost out to Tyrone by 3-13 to 1-11 in the final of the All-Ireland Minor C Championship. Commiserations to them.

  1. Well done to the U20’s on winning the Philly McGuinness cup. Team looked better balanced and this time management got match ups right all over the pitch . Also Mayo looked up for it with no complacency and clearly wanted to make a statement following their dissapointing exit from the Connacht Championship. Next onto to play Ulster which I understand is possibly Armagh or Down ? which will give these lads another day out at this grade. Also great credit to Mohill GAA club who hosted the final in memory of the late Philly McGuinness, an up and coming Leitrim Gaa footballer who passed all too young . May he rest in peace.
