This is just a quick one to confirm the weekend’s results from Connacht club Championship matches involving Mayo teams.
Starting with hurling, Tooreen yesterday recorded an impressive 1-19 to 1-12 win over Robert Emmet’s of London in the semi-final of the Connacht Intermediate hurling Championship over in Ruislip. Tooreen now go forward to the Connacht IHC decider, in which they’ll be up against Moycullen of Galway.
The women footballers of Castlebar Mitchels also came up trumps in their match yesterday. They beat St Dominic’s of Roscommon in the Connacht LGFA Intermediate semi-final by 1-13 to 1-5 and will now play Tourlestrane of Sligo in the Connacht final. That’s scheduled for next Sunday at 1pm but the venue for the game has yet to be confirmed,
The Tourlestrane men’s football team – managed by ex-Ballintubbier bainisteoir Kevin Johnson – gave Knockmore a hell of a battle in this afternoon’s Connacht SFC semi-final at Ballina. The Sligo champions led by two at half-time and they were still in front at the second water break but a late surge from the Moclair Cup holders saw them home on a scoreline of 0-10 to 0-8.
There’s a report of this match on the GAA’s website here. Knockmore now play the winners of the Mountbellew/Moylough v Padraig Pearse’s semi-final in the Connacht decider. That provincial final will be played early in the New Year.
Kilmeena had no such problems in their Connacht JFC semi-final against Galway’s Athenry, a match that was played in Bekan. They ran out convincing winners by 1-14 to 0-7 to qualify for the final where they’ll meet St Patrick’s of Sligo in the New Year.
Speaking of Bekan – and veering briefly onto off-field activity – the Mayo GAA annual Convention took place under the Dome this evening. The big news from there was that Seamus Tuohy emerged victorious in the vote for County Board Chairman, defeating Con Moynihan. Congrats to Seamus and the best of luck to him in the role.
Finally, back to the field of play and this time to a result which, despite a fair bit of searching, I haven’t been able to track down. The game in question was a camogie one – the Rose Nixon Cup final – which was contested yesterday by Na Brideoga and Galway’s Abbeyknockmoy. I can’t find any trace online of a result from that match so, if anyone can, you might post the details in the comments.
UPDATE: Abbeyknockmoy won that game by 2-9 to 2-6. Thanks to Stephen for the update on it.

Willie Joe, Abbeyknockmoy won 2-9 2-6, That’s from the ‘What’s the Scor’ App, it gives the times when the scores went in during the game, if that’s any use.
Abbeyknockmoy scored 2 goals without reply in the first 5 minutes it looks like .
Thanks for that update, Stephen! I forget to look there, that was of course the obvious place. Commiserations to Na Brideoga.
Hi WJ. Think that should that be Mountbellew/Moylough above ?
You are, of course, correct, Revellino. I’ve corrected it now.
That’s also prompted me about something else – I need to mail you directly on another issue, which I’ll do now.
After reading that match report, it looks like knockmore can count themselves very very lucky to come away with the win today.
So what’s the craic with our new chairman?
Best of luck to him and any new committee members. Thanks to Liam Moffat for his service and to any others stepping down.
I dont know much about the new chairman but i wish him the very best of good luck. And thank you Willie Joe for keeping the lights on in this place its no easy task judging by some recent almost toxic comments from a minority of contributors
Knockmore were really put to the pin of their collar yesterday by a very plucky Tourlestrane side but yet again dug out the win when it counted in the last few minutes – it was very like the county final in that sense. You couldn’t count the game as a classic for the ages (what December games are?) yet it was still hugely entertaining. If Tourlestrane had had more firepower up front (and if they’d gotten that goal!) this could well have gone another way – they really caused trouble when they played a running game – but it really sets up an intriguing encounter for the new year and it would be great to see Knockmore progress and win Connacht.
Kieran King surely has to get a call-up to the Mayo panel, I thought he was outstanding again yesterday.
I know I keep saying it but it’s so great to have games like this in Ballina, there is always a great atmosphere (and soup, god bless the Stephenites soup!!)
Thats a good win for knockmore, i did have the sense of an upset there as tourlestrane are no mugs having been dominant in sligo now for years, was all about getting over the line in that one.
I have to say though having seen few televised games over the weekend i was mightily impressed by Kilcoo and glen watty grahams, both look like serious all ireland contenders. Betting on club all ireland series is a fools game but if i was to put my money on an all ireland winner it would be going on whoever prevails in the Kilcoo – Glen game.
Kilmacud crokes won again but didnt really impress
All stars this Friday evening. I think we will get three – Leeroy, Matty and Rod
Mayo v Galway Quarter final in the tonights U20 Connacht championship draw. The winner will face Leitrim in the semi final. Matches played in April.
What players will make the mayo u20 team?
I accept your 99oz challenge Uncle Buck. Will post my view how the panel, main players will look later on.
Think few from claremorris good enough county minor champions,dara Joyce.mark Maloney
As Uncle Buck posts would expect some Claremorris players.
Think it’s a strong panel. Physically stronger than last year’s team. A more experienced team. More high quality players.

Nice looking panel there JP. Plenty of promise in some of those lads.
A couple more Id add to the mix:
Eoin Hughes (castlebar)
Liam Durcan (Knockmore)
Daithi Cosgrove (belmullet)
Mark Tighe (Kilcommon)
Dylan Thornton (Ballina)
I’m sure there’s several more from the many clubs around the county.
Ronan Hughes from the neale would be expecting to make the panel
