The town of Swinford and further afield in the county were this week trying to come to terms with the tragic news that popular 23-year-old soccer player Gary Price was drowned in a tragic accident in Loas in South East Asia. Price was in Laos with two friends on holiday, having lived in Australia for the previous year, when he drowned in the tragic accident.
The divisions and rivalries were put aside across Mayo this week as the tragic news of the death of former Swinford and Castlebar Celtic player Gary Price filtered through the county. Price rose through the youths ranks at Swinford, before moving to Castlebar Celtic where he was part of the 2007 FAI Youth Cup winning side. Tributes and condolences were paid from all involved in soccer in Mayo to Price and his family during this trying time. As a mark of respect the Mayo FA has postponed all games involving his former clubs Swinford and Castlebar Celtic in the Mayo league this weekend, and have asked for a minutes silence to be observed before all games this weekend in tribute to Gary.
Castlebar Celtic are facing into a their opening game of the Newstalk A League this weekend with a injury crisis on their hands. Celtic will be without the services of Shane Hynes, Gary Price, Stevie Gavin, Ashley Stevenson, and Pat Fitzgerald on Saturday due to injury. But more importantly it looks like they will be without goalkeepers Danny O’Leary who has a groin injury and Robert Hennelly leaving them without a recognised number one between the posts. Castlebar Celtic manager Declan Kilkelly told the Mayo Advertiser this week, “ Danny had a great game last weekend against Carlow, but he played with a groin injury, he’s seeing a specialist, but we don’t know if he’ll be able to play any part in the game.” With no recognised goalkeeper available, Kilkelly could be in line for a place between the sticks himself for Celtic. “At the moment it looks like it could be me or an outfield player, but I’d prefer not to have to play, we just have to wait and see for now.”
While the League of Ireland’s top two divisions have a couple of weeks under their belts already, Castlebar Celtic won’t be in action in the Newstalk A League until late May, but they have a hectic schedule coming up over the next few weeks in the various cup competitions. On Friday night they kick off the A League Cup with a tie at home to Finn Harps A League side in Celtic Park, and on next Tuesday night they will welcome the Ballybofey outfit’s first team in the first round proper of the EA Sports League Cup.
Four games played, four wins, and 12 points on the table, it has been business as usual for Westport United since the Super League swung back into action in the past number of weeks. The defending champions were always going to be the team that everybody would have to chase, but even as few as four games in they look like no one will be able to step up to the mark to haul them in this season. There nearest challengers at the moment are Ballina Town, a side who really need to deliver the title or some form of silverware this season to give them something to show for their top of the table battling over the past number of seasons. On Sunday the Beleek Park men will host Iorras Aontaithe and if they fail to see off the Erris men they could see Ballina extend their lead at the top of the table from three to six points with only five games gone in the season.
