image preview

While they might not have the glamour of the championship or the expectation of the national league, Mayo and Galway games are always somthing to savour. And only a fortnight after they came together in the opening round of the league, Mayo and Galway will lock horns again on Sunday afternoon in McHale Park in the final of the FBD League with the prize of an away final against New York later in the year in the offing. Galway will be gunning for Mayo after they were comprehensively beaten in the league opener. Mayo picked up their second win of the campaign last weekend with a 1-12 to 1-11 win over Tyrone in Healy Park. Mayo hung on to come out on top by the most slender of margins, after hitting six points without reply to put them four points up midway through the second half, before the homeside rallied in the final 10 minutes to cut the gap to one as time ticked down. Mark Ronaldson had his scoring boots on again as he continued to carry on the good form he has shown since the turn of the year, bagging 1-6 last Sunday, with four of his points coming from play. Donal Vaughan was another who impressed over the course of the game as the young Ballinrobe man continues to develop well in the early stages of his inter-county career. John O’Mahony also used last weeks game to give a number of players some game time off the bench, with Barry Kelly, Kieran Conroy, Neil Douglas, and Mikey Sweeney all getting their first game time of the national league this term.

Louis looks for historic win

While the glamour tie of Sunday afternoon will be the all Mayo clash in the Connacht Colleges A final, the B final which throws in at 1.30pm will have plenty of Mayo interest also with St Louis, Kiltimagh, attempting to keep the Mayo stranglehold on the title. The east Mayo school took down the defending champions Rice College, Westport, in the semi-final last week by 0-12 to 0-9 in Ballinrobe and now find themselves in the final on Sunday. Standing in their way is Galway outfit ST Paul’s, Oughterard, who have surprised many this year seeing off what would be considered more vaunted opponents in the shape of St Attracta’s, Tubbercurry, St Nathy’s, Ballaghaderreen, and Summerhill Sligo en route to the final. The St Louis side are managed by former Mayo star Maurice Sheridan and former Ballintubber player Tony Duffy, the duo have guided them to wins over Ballyhaunis Community School, Carrick-on-Shannon, and last week Rice College, and will be hoping to ensure a clean sweep for Mayo on Sunday.
