CLG Thuar Mhic Éadaigh is to host the 2015 Mayo GAA Comórtas Peile na Gaeltachta finals this year on Saturday March 28 and Sunday March 29. The west Mayo club is celebrating its 50th anniversary and the decision to welcome the other Mayo Gaeltacht clubs will be a central part of that commemoration. Speaking ahead of the comórtas, club secretary Michéal Ó Fhlainn said the competition is one of the most important club tournaments in the country, and that everyone in the parish was looking forward to the Mayo finals at the end of March. He said: “2015 is a milestone year for our club and it is fitting that we commence our celebrations by hosting the Mayo Comórtas finals. The Comórtas Peile competition means an awful lot to our club, to our players, and especially to this very important and vibrant Gaeltacht area, and we will be leaving no stone unturned as we welcome all the other Gaeltacht clubs to the shores of Lough Mask.”

Club championship picture becomes a bit clearer

The make up of the the last eight in the Mayo senior football championships in Mayo started to take shape over the weekend. Castlebar, Crossmolina Deel Rovers, Ballintubber, Ballaghaderreen and Breaffy all registered their second win in the championships.

Some surprises in the club championship this weekend

The Mayo senior and intermediate football championships kicked into life this weekend, with most sides getting to grips with the white heat of championship fare for the first time this season. The big surprise of the weekend occurred on Saturday evening when Norman O'Brien's Ballinrobe destroyed Ballaghaderreen in Charlestown. The south Mayo men pulled off a 1-11 to 0-5 win over the 2008 county champions and restricted them to a solitary point in the second half, Kenneth O'Malley also saved a penalty from Andy Moran in the game.

Back to basics this weekend

The National Football League has been put to bed for another year, last Sunday’s disappointing capitulation at the hands of Cork will have to be put to bed this weekend as clubs around Mayo welcome their stars back. This weekend’s round of club games could give the players and opportunity to exorcise some of the demons from Croke Park. Sunday sees action return to Division 1A and 1B at 2pm with a full round of games in both the top divisions. Shrule Glencorrib, who currently sit top of the table thanks to wins over Claremorris and Ballaghaderreen, will make their way to Ballintubber looking to make it three out of three, while James Horan’s side have won one and drawn another. Crossmolina Deel Rovers are just behind Shrule-Glenncorrib in the table on points difference, and John Maughan’s men will be looking to make it three out of three when they venture to Claremorris. The south Mayo men shook off their opening day defeat to Shrule Glencorrib, to see off Moy Davitts in the last round by five points. Last year’s league and championship winners Charlestown will be hoping to shake off a lacklustre start to their campaign for 2010 when they host Moy Davitts, Ciaran McBrien’s men have lost their first two games this season going down to both Ballina and Ballinrobe. Moy Davitts are in the same position as their east Mayo neighbours having lost to Crossmolina and Claremorris. Ballinrobe, who started off last season in a good vein of form before fading away in the championship, have had a similarly good start in 2010 with two wins out of two under their belt. This weekend Norman O’Brien’s side will make the short trip to take on last season’s intermediate champions Westport who have only played once so far this year in the league picking up a draw against Ballintubber.
