“You’ve got to dance with the ladies that are in the hall, as they say,” is Ciaran McBrien’s outlook as he thinks about the injuries he has to deal with ahead of this Sunday’s refixed Connacht club final against Corofin. The Charlestown manager already knew that he would be without the influence and experience of David Tiernan for this final due to injury, and star forward Richie Haran was going to be another major doubt for the game last weekend with a broken bone in his hand. The extra week has given Haran some more time to recover, but McBrien does not know if it is going to be enough. “It’s one of the hardest breaks to heal we’ve been told, they reckon it will be a six to eight week injury whichever way you look at it, but we hope he’s able to make it in some form.”
While the fog did not lift last Saturday in Castlebar, as the Mitchels finally saw off the challenge of Breaffy in the u21 A semi final, the result will stand unlike the previous week’s game which was blown up early. At the end of 60 minutes of hard fought and often times blind play the Mitchels came out deserved winners by 1-9 to 0-8. That win for Paul Jordan and Tommy O'Malley's side has set up a mouth watering encounter against another local rival, Ballintubber.
Ballintubber man Tony Duffy was handed the job of Mayo minor manager for 2010 at the county board meeting this week. County secretary Seán Feeney told the delegates at the meeting: “I would like to thank the other candidates for their interest in the position, it was a tough decision, but we feel that we have picked the strongest possible team for the job.” Feeney also confirmed that Duffy’s appointment was for an initial period of one year. The other candidates for the post were Louisburgh’s Pádraic Walsh, Donal Touhy from Bonniconlon, and Westport’s George Golden, to whom Feeney apologised to for finding out they did not get the job through the press, saying “it was supposed to be kept confidential.”
