There was more club action on within the county this weekend but, for the middle of August at a time when many other counties are moving ahead with their respective Championships, what there is to report on constitutes slim enough pickings.
One Championship that is underway is the Senior Hurling one, with the first game to be played in the quest for possession of the the TJ Tyrell Cup taking place on Friday evening. In it, defending champions Tooreen were far too strong for Castlebar Mitchels at Josie Munnelly Park, where they came out on top by 5-22 to 0-6.
There were also two matches in the Junior A Hurling Championship this weekend. Two close contests they were too, in which Westport edged out Tooreen by 2-12 to 0-14, while Ballina Stephenites beat Moytura by 3-8 to 0-15. In Junior B, Claremorris beat Caiseal Gaels by 2-9 to 1-6.
Onto the football, where the destination of League honours remains to be decided, though the various divisional titles are now all close to getting sorted.
In Division 1, the final will be contested by Knockmore and Castlebar Mitchels. The county champions saw off neighbours Ballina Stephenites at James Stephens Park this afternoon by 2-12 to 0-14 while yesterday evening at Munnelly Park Castlebar Mitchels got the better of Garrymore on a scoreline of 2-14 to 2-9.
In the Division 1 relegation play-off, Kiltimagh had two points to spare over hosts Ballaghaderreen in a high-scoring encounter yesterday evening. Kiltimagh won that one by 5-13 to 3-17.
In Division 2, Davitts beat Hollymount/Carramore yesterday evening by 2-15 to 2-14, while today Parke dispatched Belmullet by 0-11 to 0-8. In the Division 2 relegation play-offs, Cill Chomain beat Ardnaree by 3-12 to 1-11 yesterday evening while this afternoon Crossmolina beat neighbours Lahardane by 2-15 to 0-11. The above photo, by the way, was taken at that game played today at Bofeenaun.
In Division 3, Bonniconlon beat Castlebar Mitchels by 4-7 to 0-8, while Killala beat Ardagh by 1-13 to 1-9.
Finally, in Division 4, Charlestown beat Ballintubber by 1-15 to 0-11, while Breaffy edged out Balla by 1-14 to 2-9.
