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.
