It was a weekend of League finals at club level, with five separate Divisional finals decided over the last two days. Here’s confirmation of the weekend’s results.

The Division 1 title was won yesterday evening by Castlebar Mitchels who beat Westport by a point after extra-time, on a scoreline of 2-16 to 0-21. Match report from the Mayo News is here and we’ve also got a bonus Mayo Football Podcast show up on Patreon, in which we reflect on the game and hear post-match reaction from joint manager Barry Moran and from captain Donie Newcombe. The link for that is here.

Belmullet won the Division 2 final this afternoon, beating Moy Davitts at Crossmolina in a cracking contest that finished 3-10 to 1-15. Ryan O’Donoghue was the main man for the winners, bagging a personal tally of 2-5. Match report from the Mayo News on this one is here.

Earlier on yesterday evening at James Stephens Park in Ballina, Ardagh got the better of neighbours Ardnaree in the Division 3 decider, winning out by 2-7 to 0-7. As was the case with Belmullet, Ardagh’s county man, James Carr, was to the fore in the scoring stakes, accounting for 2-4 of his side’s total. Match report from the Mayo News on this game is here.

Back to today where, in a contest that got underway at Knockmore before midday, Ballintubber’s second string proved too strong for Northern Gaels in the Division 4 final. The Tubbermen came out on top on a scoreline of 3-7 to 1-9. Match report from the Mayo News on this one is here.

The Division 5 decider was also played today. This game, which took place at Ballindine, saw Aghamore’s B contingent beat their Garrymore counterparts by 1-9 to 0-10. There’s no match report online on that one, I’m afraid.

Congrats to all the weekend’s title winners and commiserations to all those who came off second best in the five title deciders.

  1. I saw Brian Reape was on the bench for Moy Davitts. Was some player at club level at his best. Hope he gets fully fit and they could be serious contenders for intermediate. If Ronan Clarke was to kick on they could be a strong forward line in senior in the next couple of years

  2. Agree Paul, Moy Davitts, are not to dissimilar to Claremorris, have won Minor A titles, A U21 and consistently competing at A grade (more than a lot of Senior team clubs have at underage) over past 10 years or so. but do not seem be able to transfer it to senior level for whatever reason.

  3. Beirne looks like one who could potentially make the step to senior in a few years, has all the natural attributes.
    Still just kids of course, so a lot can happen between now and then but hopefully some of these guys can make the grade.
    More important they enjoy the game for now.
