There’s been plenty of novel match ups in the history of the GAA, but this Sunday’s meeting of Achill and Oileain Arainn (Aran Islands) in the Connacht Club Junior Football Championship Final is probably one that will not be topped for a long while to come. Having two islands meet on the mainland for the title of being the best junior club in Connacht is going to be one of those games that will be talked about for many years to come. Of course if they wanted to be finicky the Galway outfit could probably claim to being the only true island team, with part of the parish of Achill stretching on to the main land and the Michael Davitt bridge joining it to the rest of the country. But enough of that geography talk, it is the football that really matters on Sunday.

CFÁA has completed Páirc Na Mara, Acaill, a new state of the art Children’s playground located in the heart of Keel. This modern facility, which has been equipped using the latest in the market innovations in play and leisure, ensures maximum play value for children of all age groups. Damian Kilbane, Chairman of the CFÁA, Environment and Infrastructure sub committee, said he was “delighted to see that this vital amenity for the children of Achill and beyond has been developed”. In recent years, he said, the original facility that was there had fallen into a state of disrepair and was wholly inadequate. Damian outlined furthermore that the high numbers using the playground already are testament to the success of the development.
