When the season was about to kick-off, you would have got pretty good odds on Straide and Foxford United leading the league table after the first few rounds of games, but that is exactly where they are right now, with seven points from their opening three games. You would have also probably got as long odds that the two sides who battled it out for the title last year would be in the bottom two, but once again that is what we have so far with Ballina Town propping up the table and Westport United just ahead of them.

"It was strange, it just happened quickly, I was training with the minors and I got a call two weeks before the championship, they had a few injuries and asked would I come into the group and I said 'sure look, why not' and we hadn't the best day, but it was great to come in and get the game, sure I was only 17 at the time I think."

Traditionally in Ireland, the working farm dog has always been the border collie and this is still the case today. The black and white pooches with their low, loping, stride are still a familiar sight on the backroads and laneways of the countryside moving their woolly charges from one pasture to the next. Other herding breeds are occasionally used, such as the New Zealand huntaway and the Australian kelpie. A well trained dog with the right temperament is worth its weight in gold to a farmer.
