In the end the Mayos didn’t say much

image preview

In the early 1990s the Mayos in Galway were getting so uppity that it was decided that action would be taken. It is believed that Seamus Keating, the legendary Galway city and county manager, and a Tipperary man to boot, was never slow in taking the hard decision. Exasperated by the controls exerted by the Mayos, their prestigious positions in all walks of life in the city, their swagger about the place, and the whingeing by the few Galwegians left on his staff at the unfairness of it all, one day he pressed the red button on his desk.

St Joseph’s set for glory in cross country championships

Round one of the county Kilkenny cross-country championships was held in Ballycurran Cross on Sunday. The course, well marked out by officials from host club, St Joseph’s, was in good condition despite the heavy overnight rain. The weather was good and so were the results for St Joseph’s. Thirteen points from victory with boys under 10 and under 16 and girls under 18 combined with second place for teams in boys under 12 and under 14 set them up with a good chance to re-capture the juvenile shield which Kilkenny City Harriers have held for the last couple of years. Aughavillar is currently in second place with ten points but as they have a lack of athletes in the older age groups it would seem that they have a lot to do to catch St Joseph’s.
