The campaign launched by @maigheoforsam that I mentioned yesterday appears to have borne fruit: Mayo GAA announced on Twitter earlier this morning that agreement has now been reached with Croke Park, Setanta (who are showing the match live) and the Dublin County Board to shift the throw-in time of our NFL Division One match with the Dubs at McHale Park on 11th February forward to 6.30pm. This means that the match in Castlebar should be finishing up around the time the rugger gets going in Paris, which makes sense all round. Well done to all involved.
It’s also been confirmed by the GAA that the throw-in time for Davitts’ All-Ireland Intermediate club final against Kerry’s Milltown-Castlemaine at Croke Park the following afternoon (12th February) will be 3.45pm. This match is set to take place after the junior club final between Tyrone’s Derrytresk (who have been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons since the fracas that broke out at their semi-final against Kerry’s Dromid Pearses last Sunday) and Galway’s Clonbur which will throw-in at HQ at 2pm.
