The 2017 county senior football championship is back in full swing this weekend with a full round of fixtures.
It was close. Far too close and tense in the final 10 minutes for heart rates. But for Johnny Heaney's superb double goal-line block off Danny Kirby and Diarmuid O'Connor, and it is questionable whether Galway would have contained the Mayo charge in the last quarter.
The Galway footballers left a valuable league point or two behind them at the weekend when they went down to Meath in Navan by 1-13 to 0-15 in round four of the NFL.
Having attended college for five years with plenty of lads from Clare, and having played a few Sigerson and Collingwood cups with a blast of them too with UL, I know one thing for certain, they are sound men. And hard men to beat.
Technical problems and a corrupt USB data file meant last week’s column vanished into thin air just before the paper went to print. Obviously for the most part the article was about Castlebar’s agonising defeat to Corofin after extra time. There was another part issuing a slight warning to Westport before they took on Leitrim champions Sean O’Heslin’s, based on the fact that it took Hollymount/Carramore extra time to see off last year’s Leitrim champions Melvin Gaels.

The Galway senior football championship final this Sunday at Pearse Stadium (3.30pm) sees hot favourites Corofin take on 2012 champions Salthill-Knocknacarra.
The Corofin senior footballers made no mistake in Tuam Stadium on Sunday when they were far too strong for a gallant Mountbellew-Moylough outfit, winning by 3-13 to 1-11.
The word going into Tuam Stadium last Sunday afternoon from all and sundry in a big crowd was that Tuam Stars were really going to put it up to Corofin, and try to derail their objective of winning four county titles in succession.
