Comebacks and the final countdown

With the penultimate round of games in the Mayo League taking place this weekend across most divisions, there are a few things already sorted out, but a lot more to be decided. What we know for sure is that in the Super League Westport United are the champions, with Castlebar Celtic the runners up. In the Premier A, the title and promotion race is still alive and well and Urlar United have been relegated while three other teams are battling to beat the drop. In the Premier B both the title and promotion race are still alive and well, while at the bottom Iorras Aontaithe were withdrawn while the battle to beat the drop is still all to play for for a couple of teams. In League One, Manulla B are already promoted while Bangor Hibs can book their place in the Premier B alongside them this weekend, while at the bottom Ballyvary Blue Bombers and Straide and Foxford United B are dropping to League Two next year. In the bottom tier in League Two, Fahy Rovers B have taken the title while on Sunday in Milebush Park Ballina Town B and Charlestown Athletic B will battle it out in a play-off to take the last promotion spot.

Opinion

Do we want reform or do we just not care?

So, the Seanad survived the chop, the people have spoken or to be more exact around 40 per cent of them have. The right to vote and shape the future of our country is something that was struggled for for hundreds of years, but when two questions to shape the future direction of democracy and the legal setup of the nation was asked, 60 per cent of the people didn't even bother to show up and have their say.
