Sun, Sep 20, 2015

With six minutes to go in Elverys MacHale Park on Saturday evening, Burrishoole’s number three Paddy Mulchrone got on the end of a move started by Liam O’Malley to palm the ball to the back of the net and put his side just one point down in this game and in a great position heading down the home stretch. But The Neale held their nerve and outscored the West Mayo men by 0-4 to 0-1 over the closing six minutes to book their place in this years intermediate championship’s final four.

Fri, Sep 18, 2015

Now that the dust has settled and Mayo’s 2015 attempt to win back the Sam Maguire cup for the first time since 1951 came to a very disappointing end, I was somewhat amazed at the way the media and general public analysed the situation. You have to be thick skinned to be a manager of a senior inter-county team; I know I will never be. The knives are most certainly out.

Belmullet are ready to make their own luck

Fri, Sep 18, 2015

Sun, Sep 13, 2015

For a game that looked to be going only one way eight minutes in when Achill lead Killala by four points to no score and they looked like they could do what they wanted in possession of the ball, this junior championship semi-final sure had a dramatic ending.

The council have proposed that the Galway senior hurling champions no longer take part in a Connacht senior club championship that also features the Roscommon and Mayo champions. “Our plan is that the Roscommon and Mayo champions take part in the Connacht intermediate club championship, along with the Galway intermediate champions,” said council secretary John Prenty.
