While the glamour tie of Sunday afternoon will be the all Mayo clash in the Connacht Colleges A final, the B final which throws in at 1.30pm will have plenty of Mayo interest also with St Louis, Kiltimagh, attempting to keep the Mayo stranglehold on the title. The east Mayo school took down the defending champions Rice College, Westport, in the semi-final last week by 0-12 to 0-9 in Ballinrobe and now find themselves in the final on Sunday. Standing in their way is Galway outfit ST Paul’s, Oughterard, who have surprised many this year seeing off what would be considered more vaunted opponents in the shape of St Attracta’s, Tubbercurry, St Nathy’s, Ballaghaderreen, and Summerhill Sligo en route to the final. The St Louis side are managed by former Mayo star Maurice Sheridan and former Ballintubber player Tony Duffy, the duo have guided them to wins over Ballyhaunis Community School, Carrick-on-Shannon, and last week Rice College, and will be hoping to ensure a clean sweep for Mayo on Sunday.
Mayo ladies hope to continue winning ways
The Mayo ladies will hope that they continue on their winning ways on Sunday when they travel to Armagh in the ladies’ national football league. Last weekend Mayo saw off Donegal in a shoot out by 4-13 to 2-13 in Kiltimagh. Triona McNicholas, Fiona McHale, and Lisa Cafferkey got the goals, while Cora Staunton was on top form in front of the posts hitting eight points over the hour. New Mayo manager Kevin Reidy has seen his side win their last two games over Kerry and Donegal after losing on the opening day to Tyrone.
