1. Both O'Sheas are in fantastic form

image preview

The Mayo u21 hurling team made the short journey to Athleague on Wednesday evening to play Roscommon in the Connacht u21B Hurling final. Mayo, under the guidance of manager Brian Finn, were hopeful of breaking the Rossie’s stronghold on the competition and were bolstered by an impressive win over Sligo in the semi-final last week.

Mayo do more than survive, unlike myself

First things first, The Battle of Bellaghy white collar boxing event between Charlestown GAA and Curry GAA held in the CBD complex in Charlestown was another phenomenal success and I am sure the coffers of both clubs are well boosted after it. I have played in many a big game down the years and would consider myself reasonably calm and in control given a particular situation, but boxing is a different animal. I had a week from hell in the lead up to the event, I could not sleep properly and was extremely anxious and nervous for pretty much the entire week, none the less, I took part, took my beating, and have very sore ribs to prove it. I would suggest for anyone who thinks I am off my trolley, to sign up for an event to see what I am on about, as every fighter on the night were pretty much petrified, even the good boxers. The box is ticked and at least I am alive to tell the tale. Note to self; you are never doing it again.

Mayo: 2-15

Mayo's heartbreaking wait for Sam continues

The first Mayo man I met early on Monday morning in the staff room just nodded at me. Smiled a sheepish, bashful smile, shrugged his shoulders, looked a tad embarrassed and said nothing. And he was right. Because, unfortunately, there was nothing to say.

Mayo bring Markham home for the first time since 85'

The future's bright, the future's Mayo. Despite what happened in the senior final afterwards, the achievements of this current crop of Mayo minors should warm the hearts of the county over the winter months. Enda Gilvarry's team, have been a joy to watch this summer, playing with free-flowing abandon and ruthless streak. In the six minutes either side of half time, they kicked 2-4 to set up Mayo's first win the All Ireland minor championship since 1985. There were young heroes all over the field, with David Kenny, Eddie Doran, Michael Hall and Stephen Coen all leading from the back. While you couldn't ask for much more from the full-forward line, who contributed 2-8 between them, with Tommy Conroy and Darragh Doherty grabbing 1-2 each, with Liam Irwin kicking four points from frees.

Galway will need to improve to stop Armagh

image preview

Nothing in sport is definite - and that unpredictability is one of the main reasons we are enthralled by it. However, it is reasonable to assert that the Galway footballers must improve significantly on what they have produced in the championship to date if they are going to beat Armagh on Saturday at Pearse Stadium (5pm).
