The heart-rates have probably only got back to normal for Moy Davitts' supporters following last Saturday nights amazing come from behind injury time victory in the Mayo Intermediate Football Championship final. Trailing by three points in injury time, having led by five at the turnaround and a man up, they had only managed to score a single point in the entire 30 minutes of normal play in the second half - but somehow they managed to win the game in a amazing four minutes of action. James Mulderrig hammered home a thunderbolt of a goal from 20 yards out, to level it up - it was that type of shot that once it left his boot you could see it was only going to end up in one place and that was followed by a floating effort from Séan Kelly which seemed to just about make it over crossbar.
The intermediate football championship final has been fixed for Saturday in Pearse Stadium (1pm) according to Galwaygaa.ie.
The last remaining county senior hurling semi-final berth is expected to be decided on Sunday in Kenny Park (2pm) when city side Liam Mellows take on Clarinbridge in an eagerly anticipated replay, following last weekend's dramatic draw.
The lastest SUV offering is the Opel Grandland X which will be on show in Galway tomorrow in JJ Fleming's state-of-the-art showroom.
The Mayo Senior championship quarter finals threw up a couple of eye catching results over last weekend. It was the first time ever that the four group winners failed to win their quarter finals, although Ballintubber did get through to the semi-final at the second time of asking after Wednesday night's replay with Hollymount- Carramore.
All roads lead to Ballina tomorrow for what promises to be two real battles, with a place in the Mayo Intermediate Football Championship final up for grabs.

Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in! I could apply that quote to the Mayo Advertiser asking me to return for a one-off All-Ireland final article or to Mayo football itself. Either way, I am delighted to be in this position in mid-September. As ardent football fans we have been deservedly rewarded in this county. Supporters have fed off our team’s energy and vice versa. That relationship is an essential component for a successful season so do what you can to make it to Dublin this weekend and bring the colour, bring the noise. When the 66-year drought ends this Sunday and the pent-up euphoria is unleashed with little hope of abating, my one concern is that the names of the men who built a football-loving county and laid the foundations for thousands of fanatics and players may be lost in the many celebratory renditions of The Green and Red of Mayo.
All-Ireland final fever is here. I still have to pinch myself to contemplate that Mayo are back in the football showpiece again. Looking at Mayo's run to the final you'd almost forget that it started against Sligo in Castlebar on May 21. The ticket fiasco is still the same, however, with most Mayo folk willing to beg, borrow, or steal to get their hands on that elusive golden ticket. Some novel efforts took to Tinder looking for a female acquaintance, the only catch was they had to have a spare ticket for the game. The most desperate are offering their spouses in return for a match day pass, it's all part of the fun, it's all part of the build up.
At the smoothly run and enjoyable homecoming for both minor and senior teams in Pearse Stadium on Monday, Galway minor hurling manager Jeffrey Lynskey quoted the old Meat Loaf classic “Two out of three ain’t bad” to describe Galway’s terrific 2-17 to 2-15 win over Cork in the All-Ireland minor final.
He has an All Ireland club medal, U21 winner's medal, three All Stars, two league winner's medals, a Fitzgibbon Cup and a couple of Leinister titles in his back pocket, but the one he really wants is up for grabs on Sunday afternoon.
