The Mayo senior hurling team will be looking to make it two wins from two in Elverys MacHale Park when Meath come to town.

Clynch clinches it at the death for Meath

image preview

Mayo will still go into the quarter-finals of the Christy Ring Cup in a few weeks despite their narrow defeat at the hands of Meath on Saturday afternoon in a blustery MacHale Park. A late free from Meath captain Stephen Clynch at the end of normal time was the difference between the two sides on the day. The Royals number six showed nerves of steel to stroke the ball right over the black spot under pressure to send Meath straight into the semi-finals of the competition. Mayo did have a chance right at the death, but Sean Regan was unable to direct his sideline cut from 21 meters out under the stand over the bar.

Vote with your feet with fuel buying

There is nothing like rising prices to convince people that they are being ripped off. I found this out again this week on the thorny subject of rising fuel prices.

Ivor’s biggest sin — getting caught

Sssssh. Listen. Can you hear the patter of hundreds of tiny trotters as the piglets sprint away from the massive swill trough before the bold pig spills it over. Off they run lest they be splashed with any of the muck-spreading that has been caused by the bould pig Ivor. They’ve all known for a long time that the bould pig Ivor had been lashing up the swill with all four trotters, but sure, they let him carry on because they just didn’t want the farmer to come over and see what was going on at the trough. ‘Cos then he might look at them all, and see the muck on the trotters from the fumbling in the greasy swill.

Lee the loser in Fine Gael shocker

Did George Lee think he was going to be catapulted onto the front bench of Fine Gael without earning his stripes? Obviously he did. This whole debacle raises questions of the undoubted ability of celebrity candidates earning votes but then truly understanding what it takes to serve in public life.

It’s not so much fun being a little fish in a big pond

When you don’t really know someone that well, but perhaps think you do, it’s very easy to pass judgement on their actions. Sweeping statements can come thick and fast when someone of national interest does something, that, well, let’s be honest, we didn’t really see coming. In my case, I had kinda forgotten about Georgelee, I was too busy being astounded by all things Charlie Bird after his eye opener of a documentary on how easy it is to be ungrateful and disappointingly average at a job most journalists would kill to have! But then again I’m a bit biased on these sorts of things!

Erris players to mark Synge centenary with Playboy performance

The Playboy of the Western World, by John Millington Synge, is arguably the Irish playwright’s greatest masterpiece. In order to mark the centenary of JM Synge’s death – he died, aged 37, on March 24 1909 – the Erris Players, under the direction of Bridie Quinn, will be staging a powerful performance of this noted drama in Belmullet and in Bangor Erris. Interestingly, this is not the group’s first performance of the play – they first staged it 17 years ago and that very successful production is still recalled by local actors and audiences alike.
