There was LGFA Championship football, there was men’s Junior Championship football and there was Senior hurling Championship action all on this weekend. Here’s a quick gallop through the weekend’s results.

Starting with LGFA, the weekend’s results were as follows:

  • JFC A Group B: Kiltimagh 1-4 Parke/Keelogues/Crimlin 3-10; Aghamore 5-17 Kilmeena 2-7

A report by the Mayo News on the Charlestown/Westport game is here and the same paper’s report on Carnacon’s win over Hollymount is here.

Onto those Junior finals, in which the A decider at MacHale Park today between Knockmore and Westport had to be abandoned at half-time due to torrential rain. The Mayo News has a report on that one here.

The B final between Claremorris and Parke/Keelogues/Crimlin went to penalties, after it finished 0-11 apiece. Claremorris took the title at Fr O’Hara Park in Charlestown by winning the shootout 4-3, with that match also being played in the same horrendous weather that hit the west this afternoon. A Mayo News report on the game is here. Ballinrobe beat Garrymore by 0-14 to 1-10 in the JFC C final at Cong.

In Round 2 of the Senior hurling Championship, Tooreen had an extremely facile 10-21 to 1-4 win over St Ciarán’s on Saturday while Ballyhaunis got the better of Castlebar Mitchels by 3-22 to 1-3 the same afternoon.

  1. Any thoughts on the Brolly article in the indo? The man can be a hypocrite himself but he was spot on this week. I don’t understand clubs paying huge money for outside mangers who are only in it for themselves. There is a circuit of “managers” going around the county at the minute and it’s a pure con job. The clubs who employ them are worse. Time, funding and knowledge would be much better served in developing underage structures.

  2. What can be done about hurling in Mayo/ Connacht. Is it time to amalgamate Mayo Roscommon Sligo Leitrim and have senior junior intermediate levels maybe with the senior winner hoing into Galway intemediate the following season. Something needs to be done to try and develop the game.

  3. I was watching it, Sam Og – Rob scored four long-range points from frees, which went a long way towards Raheny winning it. It was a tame enough affair, Vinnies are a long, long way from the level they were at ten years ago and it’s hard to see Crokes having much trouble with Raheny in the semis either.

  4. Was at Junior B final in Charlestown yesterday , dramatic entertaining game in terrible conditions …despite this great credit due to both team , officials and all for ensuring game went ahead and no serious injuries etc …also credit to Claremorris FM for broadcasting on their local radio channel and sterling match commentary from Brian Harte.

  5. The junior c final in cong was equally dramatic, either team could have won it in xtra time. Terrible conditions, but the pitch held up well. Ballinrobe were a bit younger and a bit fitter. Pat Duffy manager has now two adult titles won with ballinrobe, the under 19 two years ago and the junior yesterday. Well done.

  6. Outside managers at club level and the majority of players not owning an ONeills. Madness in terms of tge use of club cash.
    Clubs should subsidise the cost of buying an ONeills. It has to be the ONeills to have the proper feel of the ball.
    The other thing would be investing in club equipment.
