The weekend’s results

This is just a quick one, to provide an update on Mayo-related matches that took place over the weekend.

Let’s start with Rounders, which was the main focus for the weekend. There were three matches of interest, two involving Breaffy, all three of them All-Ireland semi-finals.

Breaffy’s Ladies team yesterday won their All-Ireland semi-final. They beat Dublin’s Limekiln by 26-12 to qualify for the final where they’ll meet Bagenalstown of Carlow. They knocked out the reigning All-Ireland champions, Wexford’s Adamstown, in the other semi-final yesterday.

Breaffy were also in action yesterday in the All-Ireland Senior Mixed semi-final. They lost out narrowly in that one, though, to Glynn Barntown of Wexford on a scoreline of 15-13.

Kilmeena, meanwhile, were up against Emo of Laois this afternoon in the All-Ireland Junior Mixed semi-final. Despite having a good root around online just now, I can’t, I’m afraid, source a result from that one.

Moving onto hurling, here are the Championship results from this weekend:

  • SHC: Ballyhaunis 4-14 Castlebar Mitchels 1-5
  • SHC ‘A’: Tooreen 2-23, Ballina Stephenites 0-9; Moytura 0-17, Westport 0-11
  • SHC ‘B’: Caiseal Gaels 1-15, Castlebar Mitchels 2-6

Finally, the county tasted All-Ireland success in hurling at the weekend at underage level. The Mayo U15 hurling team came out on top in this weekend’s Hibernia Cup, beating Donegal by 5-15 to 0-3 in the semi-final before crushing Armagh by 5-16 to 1-1 in the decider.

The victorious Mayo team are pictured above. Huge congrats to them on a great win.

  1. I cant help but notice that the dust has settled on here in the last couple of days since the appointment of Kevin Mc Stay was announced as Manager of the Mayo team which is a god send especially for you WJ.

  2. Comhghairdeas do foireann Mhuigeo
    What a great achievement to our young team and management. Go neiri libh i gconai !

  3. Very good results for the Mayo teams over the weekend. Congratulations to the U15 hurlers on their All Ireland success, a very convincing win so well done to all involved. Hopefully more All Ireland victories will follow for the Breaffy and Kilmeena rounders teams. Looking at the club hurling results it’s clear that no other clubs are emerging to challenge the dominance of Ballyhaunis and Toreen. We need at least two other strong hurling clubs if Mayo are to move up a level or two.

  4. Takes a long time Mo Maguire, unless you import the talent takes a good 20 years of underage development which has to include the schools to get anywhere.
    I’m at the other end of the stick here where football is the poor relation, it’s not easy and I sympathise with people trying to get hurling off the ground in strong football parishes in Mayo.
