I thought I was hearing things when I tuned into Midwest radio last Saturday evening to see how our minors were getting on against our bitter rivals Galway. I did not make it to the game because of the lure of what was on TV as I wanted to see how Roscommon would respond after their embarrassing defeat at the hands of Sligo. Mayo’s defeat to Galway by a whopping 17 points has to go down as one of the darkest days in Mayo football at minor level. I do not recall any Mayo minor team taking a pasting of that magnitude.
The Mayo senior hurlers will look to get back on winning ways on Sunday when Down are the visitors to Elverys MacHale Park in round three of the National Hurling League. JP Coen’s men have a 50 per cent record so far this season, having beaten Donegal on the opening day in Letterkenny then going down to Meath in a rain soaked and wind lashed affair in Bekan a fortnight ago.
Galway u16 girls claimed the Connacht title in Charlestown on Sunday last but were made fight all the way by a determined Roscommon side. The Rossies played with the wind in the first half but it was Galway that started the better and were two points up inside three minutes, with points from Riona Ni Fhlatharta and Leanne Coen.
Alan Mulholland's team head to Clones on Sunday (3pm) with some momentum as they try to secure a win that would automatically guarantee division two league football for 2015.
Westmeath have been drawn at home to Fermanagh in round 1 of the All-Ireland qualifiers. Neighbours Offaly got the draw that everyone wanted to avoid as they were drawn at home to Tyrone.
Westmeath have been drawn away to London in the preliminary round of the hurling qualifiers in a game fixed for Ruislip on Saturday June 22. There was a time when playing London in either code was a formality but not so any more. Just ask anyone from Sligo.
London GAA is in shock after a young player, Cathal Forde, died while training with Kilburn Gaels in the city this week.
The Galway minor footballers failed in their bid last Sunday to win the county’s first Connacht minor title since 2007.
Last weekend's Donegal Harvest Rally was the final round of the 2010 HASS Border Rally Championship and resulted in success for a number of Mayo competitors. Completing a fine season with second in class on the rally, Ambrose Gaughan and Derek Molloy were the overall winners of class nine on the Border Series. Competing in a Toyota Corolla, the Foxford/Lahardane duo have been a revelation this season in this very competitive category, regularly beating competitors in much more powerful cars.
The wheat is continuing to be separated from the chaff now in the All-Ireland football qualifiers and this Saturday sees four games in Round 2 down for decision.
