If they had lost it, they would really have no-one else to blame but themselves, but come crunch time Castlebar Mitchels centre-half-forward Adam Murphy had the wherewithal to do what so many of his team-mates had failed to do before that and put the ball between the posts deep into injury time on Sunday. Mitchels were by far the better team on the day, but they left the backdoor open with their wayward shooting and Achill found themselves in with a chance of lifting the McDonnell cup against the odds at the end.
Come Sunday evening shortly after 5pm, they’ll be building bonfires on the way into Hollymount and Carramore or Ballyhaunis to celebrate either the amalgamation from south Mayo or the east Mayo men returning home with the Mayo intermediate title in their arms and a return to senior football.
It's been some week for Noel Connelly, the former Mayo captain was appointed as the new joint manager of the Mayo senior football team alongside his old running mate Pat Holmes. While the whole appointment process and the wrongs and rights of it were played out in the public spotlight, Connelly also had to be preparing his Hollymount-Carramore team for Saturday afternoon's Egan Jewelers Intermediate Championship semi-final replay against Belmullet. Last weekends meeting between the sides wasn't anything to write home about as Belmullet played to their strengths and packed their defence and hit Hollymount-Carramore on the break and used the sharp-shooting of Jonathon Donoghue to keep themselves in the game.

The Elverys Sports Super League will enter its final four game stretch this weekend with Castlebar Celtic looking to stay the course to the title over the last handful of games. Declan Kilkelly’s side are currently five points in front of second placed Claremorris, they kept the gap open thanks to coming out on the right side of an odd goal in seven encounter with bottom of the table Ballinrobe Town last weekend in Celtic Park. Celtic raced into a two goal lead early on only to be hit for three in a row by Ballinrobe, before goals from Stevie Gavin and Ger O’Boyle saw them win through at the end. On Sunday, Celtic will make the short hop to the Sportspark to take on Westport United at 2.30pm.
The Super League has been firmly split into two camps for most of the season, and now with only four games to go for the vast majority of the sides the next month will shape the winners and losers. At the top of the table, Westport United, Iorras Aontaithe, and Ballina Town are going at it hammer and tongs for the title, while everyone else from fourth placed Manulla down is battling to beat the drop. It is going to be one hell of an exciting end to the season.
A bit like the masters team the Mayo junior team creep in under the radar every year, and this year was no different. A devastating second half display in Carrick on Shannon two weeks ago today saw Mayo dispatch Leitrim with ease and set up this weekend’s Connacht final.
