The long, long weekend is nearing its end and we’re coming to terms with our second defeat on the spin in this year’s National League campaign. Oh well, here’s what’s online about last night’s hugely annoying loss to Tyrone.
Locals: Connaught Telegraph.
Stats: GAA Statsman.
We won in the camogie, though, and won well too, with yesterday’s victory over Tyrone at Tooreen sending the team through to the Camogie League Division 4 final. Match report on that one here.
There’s more small ball action today, of course, with the hurlers in NHL Division 2B action against Donegal at James Stephens Park, Ballina, at 1pm while in camogie we’re also contesting the All-Ireland Minor C Championship final this afternoon. This national decider against Wicklow takes places at Tang GAA club in Coolvin, Westmeath, where throw-in is 2pm. Best of luck to them in that one.
If you want to hear more about how and why we lost in Omagh last night then our Final Whistle podcast for club members on Patreon should be your first port of call. Recorded in Healy Park right after the game had ended, Rob, Mike and Billy Joe provide a superb concise overview and analysis of the game. That went online soon after the game ended last night and there’s more from them, with me included too, in our full match review pod that’ll be up on Patreon today. If you’re interested in becoming a club member on Patreon you can do so here.
Finally, the MOTM poll on the Tyrone game is still open, where there’s a two-way tussle between Matthew Ruane and Ryan O’Donoghue for the honour. Mattie’s out in front at the minute but the poll will be open for several more hours so, if you haven’t yet had your say there, then please do so.
Right, that’s your lot – it may be raining inside for us this morning but the sun is shining on what’s a decent spring Sunday out there so I think that’s where I’m headed now. Back later with the result of the MOTM poll.
