The first stage of the Invacare Para Cycling Time Trial Series kicked off in Ballaghaderreen in very blustery conditions on Saturday, March 9. However it was the spectators that were blown away at the standard of athlete and equipment that presented themselves at Ballaghaderreen GAA Clubhouse which was used as race HQ. A come and try event got under way prior to the event which saw nine youths and newcomers try hand cycling and tandem cycling, with Cathal Miller who represented Ireland in this year’s Olympic Games doing a sprocket rocket event. The Dublin based rider who got as high as fifth in the world championships was with the other competitors looking for gears on what proved a tough 16km TT route with a massive headwind from the turnaround point at Kilmovee. Twenty one raced the event with seven hand bikes, three tandems, and eight solo bikes from places as far away as Armagh, Tipperary, Dublin, and Cork.

It was predicted that the sun would be high in the sky last Sunday and so it proved. It was a glorious autumnal day for county finals and a magnificent crowd turned up at McHale Park to see what would hopefully be two action-packed encounters. However, and not for the first time, the fare on offer did not live up to the billing. I was sitting back in glorious sunshine for the County junior final in good time. What struck me immediately on entering the stadium was the fantastic crowd that turned out for the games.
t’s been 36 years since it was last achieved when Garrymore saw off Knockmore by the smallest of margins on a scoreline of 1-9 to 2-5 to claim a historic three-in-a-row. On Sunday, Ballintubber are looking to become the latest side to enter their name in that ledger in the history books of Mayo football.
Come this time of the season, the win is all that matters and that's exactly what Ballintubber and Ballaghaderreen both delivered in Elvery's McHale Park on Sunday afternoon. Both of this years senior championship semi-finals weren't games for the ages. What they were, was games that had to be won. Ballintubber who are looking to be the first team since the historic Garrymore side of the mid-seventies to put together a three-in-a-row title rein, booked their place in this years final, by coming out on the right side of a result that looked for a good portion of the game, was going to go against them.
