  1. What about the Junior B LGFA cup and shield? 11 teams put their heart and soul into that competition.

  2. Ballina be very strong outright favourites you’d imagine.
    Ballintubbers aging defence and minus Gibbons and plunkett could be in for a tough day the office

  3. Friday 14th October
    Connacht Centre of Excellence, Bekan
    6:30pm – Junior B Shield Final
    Claremorris B vs Carnacon B
    8pm – Junior B Cup Final
    Kilmeena vs Tuar Mhic Eadaigh

  4. Are tickets available at McHale Park on Sunday before the games ? Westport v Castlebar could be very close, maybe worth the spin.

  5. Thanks for posting those details Mattd, I’ve now updated the piece as well and have also added the link for ticket details. By the way, the reason I didn’t include those match details in the original piece yesterday evening was because Mayo LGFA only tweeted this information a few hours ago.

  6. Some terrific games to look forward to at the weekend but surely there could have been a bit more thought put into the scheduling with too many games on at the same times. I’m going for Ballina and Westport in senior and Davitts to beat The Neale. In intermediate Moy Davitts and Ballyhaunis. Ardnaree to avoid relegation. Shrule and Kilcommon to prevail in junior A with Achill and Moygownagh in the B. Hope the weather that is forecast doesn’t happen and the players get the conditions they deserve.

  7. Think so Third Man In, according to the blog. Hope its sorted and he’s allowed to play. Would expect to hear news today.
    It was an extremely harsh red.

  8. Cheers Gizmobobs! Agreed Liberal, it was a harsh red and really would have been a shame to see a player miss out on a semi final because of it. Big boost for Ballintubber so!

  9. There has been criticism of the GAA for not allowing supporters to pay cash at the gates..not sure if it’s permitted for games on the weekend.

    In relation to the Gibbons decision I don’t think this is about the individual decision itself. Instead it’s another example of the nonsense of the system within the GAA…overly beuracratic with far too many committees and a culture which ultimately allows too may people off at the last minute, often on technicalities.

    It’s bluff is called with the punishment of time rather than match suspensions ..which can often mean an offender misses no games.

  10. Thanks, FDB – seeing as it’s on YouTube I’m going to lash the feed up on the blog too so anyone who’s interested can watch it live from here.

  11. So the intermediate championship semi final is postponed because of a waterlogged pitch. I’m sure they will find an alternative venue but that’s the kind of thing that happens when you play big club games in late October. It’s winter football everywhere from now on. That entire month of august that clubs spent playing challenge games in the best weather and conditions of the year while waiting for the championship to start is looking more ridiculous by the minute.
    The championship finals should be completed by the 20th September under this new split season calendar and there should be no Mayo club championship games in October. There should be a rule from Croke park that every county board has their championship completed by 30th September and the only clubs playing in October are provincial competition representatives from each county.

  12. Re fixtures, we should be grateful to WJ for the enormous effort he puts into informing us on the many matches that are taking place rather than complaining about unavoidable ommisions.
