image preview

FBD final down for decision

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.

Naomh Anna come up short against Cookstown

Naomh Anna, Leitir Mór, did their very best on Sunday afternoon at Pearse Park in Longford to try to reach the final of the All-Ireland Intermediate Championship, but it was not to be. They have punched above their weight for most of the season on the road to county and provincial success, but last weekend they came up against a team that was just too good for them. There is no shame in that. And to their credit, they fought like real troopers right to the final whistle as they have done all season.

Kernan’s Galway continue on winning ways while hurlers get ready for action

image preview

Joe Kernan’s Galway look to be odds on to book their place in the FBD League final this weekend after picking up back to back victories over both Sligo and Leitrim. This Sunday the Armagh man’s charges will face a sort of homecoming when they take on the students from GMIT at 2pm in Moycullen, and with a comprehensive score difference in their pockets from their two wins, the Tribesmen would have to go down by more than nine points to be denied a place in the home final. The students have two points on the board in the competition and will be full of confidence heading into the clash as they step up their preparations for Sigerson Cup action in the not too distant future.
