Padraig Pearses GAA Club members are mourning the loss of club vice-president, Fr Nicholas Murray.
With the Mayo club championships now put to bed following Ballintubber’s victory over Castlebar Mitchels last weekend, all eyes will now be drawn to the Connacht club championship. The action gets underway on Sunday for the winners of both the Mayo Junior and Intermediate championships, when both Tourmakeady and Parke face Galway opposition. The men from the Gaeltacht will have Mayo advantage when they host St James from Galway city on Sunday, in McHale Park. The Galway champions overcame An Spidéal in the Galway final by a single point a fortnight ago, winning out on a score of 0-9 to 0-8. Midfielder Paul Conroy was the top scorer for the St James men in the final kicking four points of their nine point total.
A novel idea has been mooted by the Connacht GAA Council in a bid to promote hurling in the province, and it could come into being next season. 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.
