Not so long ago December 8, the feast of the Immaculate Conception of Mary, a day when schools were closed, was the start of Christmas for most people. There were not the long gruelling hours of late-night shopping that are par for the course today. Perhaps in the final days before Christmas, most shops would open late; but generally in the weeks leading up to December 25, it was the normal week’s opening times. Believe it or not, everyone got their shopping done.
Three first-half Portumna goals ultimately proved the difference between the sides in this slow burning semi final played at Kenny Park yesterday. The champions are back once again in another final and it is difficult to look past them yet, as in recent rounds, they only impressed in fleeting spurts.

In fact, were it not for the Border men’s first half profligacy in front of goal, Mellows would have been far greater in arrears than the seven-point half time margin.
Portumna are on course to retain this year’s Galway Senior Hurling Championship crown after easing to a 3 -10 to 0- 13 victory over Liam Mellows in Athenry.
