Priests, party buses and some football

I’m not sure if it’s the wisest thing I have ever done but I joined up with the 'Charlestown party bus' after Mayo’s drive for five became a reality last Sunday in Hyde Park. I felt it was important to celebrate such a milestone and such an emphatic victory in the Connacht final. I did suffer for it on Monday.

Resilient Westmeath were plucky to the bitter end

Plucky until the bitter end, Westmeath still suffered a Leinster Senior Football Championship final loss to Dublin at Croke Park on Sunday afternoon.

Daithí Burke to concentrate on county hurling

Corofin's All-Ireland club football winning midfielder Daithí Burke will not be available to the county football squad this season as he is going to focus his inter-county aspirations totally with Anthony Cunningham's hurlers over the coming months.

Championship quarter wins the day for Mayo

Last Sunday’s All-Ireland senior quarter final against Cork really had a bit of everything. The tone for the game was set up earlier in the week when Brian Cuthbert, the Cork manager, launched an attack on two of Mayo’s favourite sons, Kevin McLoughlin and Cillian O’Connor. This was then compounded by Cork selector Ronan McCarthy’s agreement with his manager when both players’ integrity was put into question and their ability to “foul tactically” and be very “streetwise” was used as a means of trying to give Cork an edge with the referee. McLoughlin and O’Connor are role models for youngsters all over the county and indeed country, and I feel the Cork management made a big mistake in naming them, particularly as they have a pretty much impeccable disciplinary record. The bottom line is you want your forwards tackling hard, and maybe if their own team were a little more “streetwise” against Kerry they would not have received such a hiding.

Galway FC to prepare for Shelbourne attack

Nine Airtricity League first division games remain for Galway FC with tomorrow's vital encounter against Shelbourne at Eamonn Deacy Park, promising to be a lively affair.

Westmeath triumph over an unlucky London

Last Saturday’s Leinster Senior Hurling Championship round robin series triumph over London means Westmeath’s summer will be defined when they face the Christy Ring Cup winners in a fortnight.

Casey’s Call

It is 11 am, Wednesday morning, May 6, and I am just in the door from my five night New York adventure.

In their green and black jerseys...

Victory in the 1961 County Juvenile Hurling final for the Father Tom Burke’s team from the Claddagh in the same colours their grandfathers wore in the great days of hurling in South Park recalled memories of the Moores, the Macs, the Currans, and the Carricks.

Mayo come up just short in Newry

Down 0-17

Kiltane are on the march

Oh to have a crystal ball to see what fortunes lie ahead for Mayo football in 2014. One thing for sure, one Mayo club — Kiltane have a superb chance to claim one of the early pieces of silverware when they take on Truagh of Monaghan in the All-Ireland intermediate final in Croke Park on February 9, a feat my own club Charlestown should have accomplished last season but for some calamitous decisions when they were coasting against eventual winners Cookstown of Tyrone in the All- Ireland semi final. Kiltane were simply brilliant last Sunday. If you were to tell me before the game that star attacker Mikey Sweeney and Tommy “Goals” Conroy were not going to score against Clyda Rovers, I would have re-mortgaged the house on Clyda.
