The Mayo senior hurlers slumped to their third straight defeat last Saturday, when Kildare put them to the sword in Newbridge. That defeat along with the two before at the hands of Meath and Down now have Mayo sitting second from bottom of the league table on two points, with just the winless Donegal below them.
The Mayo senior hurlers fell to their second defeat in this year’s National Hurling League last Sunday when Down ran out 2-20 to 0-15 winners in Elverys MacHale Park. JP Coen’s men now face the toughest test of their season so far when they head to Newbridge tomorrow afternoon to take on last year’s Christy Ring Cup winners, Kildare. The Lilywhites have a 100 per cent record so far with wins over Meath, Down, and Armagh under their belts. Their wins over Meath and Armagh came on the road and over their three games they have scored 5-64.
The Mayo minors booked their place in the final four of this years Electric Ireland Minor Football Championship with a impressive victory over beaten Ulster finalists Armagh in Croke Park on Sunday. Enda Gilvarry's side got over a nervy opening 15 minutes to win the game in some style with Bohola Moy Davitts corner forward Brian Reape bagging himself two second half goals to seal the win with 20 minutes to go in GAA headquarters.
The Mayo senior hurlers will pass the half-way mark of their league season on Sunday when they take on Down in Páirc Esler in Newry at 2pm. Christy Phillip’s side will be looking to bounce back from a five-point defeat at the hands of Meath in Trim last time. That defeat leaves Mayo with a notch in both the win and loss columns so far and has them locked in a four-way tie on two points each with Fingal, Wicklow, and Meath from the opening two rounds. Sunday’s opponents are sitting two of the division 2b table with two wins from two having seen off Wicklow and Armagh. Their win over the Orchard County in the first round was particularly impressive where they ran up 2-20 on their hosts in the Athletic Grounds.
After two very comprehensive wins in the first two rounds of the qualifiers, it is no surprise that Armagh manager Paul Grimley has stuck with the same 15 players to face Galway this Saturday in round three at Pearse Stadium (5pm).
Roscommon 1-11 Armagh 1-09
There is black and white footage of Jimi Hendrix playing a violin, not with a bow, but just plucking it like a guitar, experimenting with it. The young Galway based musician Daithí Ó Drónaí uses his violin to play trad and left-field indie pop. Stéphane Grappelli was as comfortable playing with Paul Simon and Frankie Gavin as he was playing jazz.
