It was third time lucky for Ciaran McBrien’s men last Sunday as they claimed the Moclair Cup thanks to a three point win over Knockmore in the county senior final. The east Mayo men were deserving winners over an injury hit side from north Mayo who lacked the killer punch up front denied to them by the absence of Aidan Kilcoyne and Damien Munnelly, but that is of little worry to Charlestown who went out and did what they had to do. David ‘Ginger’ Tiernan rolled back the years with a tireless display in the middle of the field which saw him rightfully rewarded with a man of the match trophy after the game but good performances from the likes of Richard Haran which saw him score four points, John Casey in goal who pulled off a few good saves one late on when Knockmore were battling for a goal to save the tie and substitute Brian O’Connell who offered them something different in attack when they needed it, during the final scuffles saw them over the line. And after the celebrations died down this week, attention will turn to the Connacht Club championship, a competition the east Mayo men won the last time they were county champions back in 2001.
Mayo AC had 17 finishers in the Dublin City Marathon, three first time marathoners, many improved times, and all enjoyed the tremendous atmosphere and fantastic Mayo support among the thousands lining the 26.2 mile route.

Galway Mountain Rescue Team will be on the streets of Galway this Saturday for its annual fundraising collection. Members of the team will be on Shop Street and in the Galway Shopping Centre on the Headford Road throughout the day. Ronan Concannon, team leader, says it takes approximately €30,000 per year to run the team covering costs such as insurance, transport, and rescue and safety equipment. Much of this has to be raised by the team itself and often members have to cover their own costs associated with callouts and training. He said that the annual bucket collection is hugely important to the team in terms of fundraising and that they get a fantastic response from the people of Galway every year.
