Clann na nGael travel to Woodmount this weekend to take on Padraig Pearses in round two of the group matches. Clann have the huge advantage of having a game under their belts with an impressive 10-point win last weekend.
There is so much to love, admire, and be proud of about the GAA and yet at times it is one of the most frustrating organisations to have anything to do with. Take the recent decision to fix the next round of senior, intermediate, and junior club games for the weekend of June 8/9 for example. This happens to be the opening weekend of the Leaving Cert exams and most if not all clubs have players or panellists involved in the State exams.
Reigning county and all-Ireland club champions St Brigid’s begin the defence of their titles as the Roscommon senior football championship kicks off this weekend. The Saints have home advantage when they meet Western Gaels in Kiltoom on Saturday evening at 7pm. Naturally Brigid’s will be hot favourites to retain their title, but with Frankie Dolan and Cathal McHugh amongst others who will not feature in the opening round I expect Western Gaels to push them close.
The first round of the 2013 Galway Senior Hurling Championship starts this weekend.
The waiting is nearly over and the final pieces of the jigsaw are now in place as St Brigid’s ready themselves for a titanic All-Ireland Club Football Final showdown with Dublin and Leinster club champions Ballymun Kickhams on St Patrick’s Day.
The Galway senior hurlers start their 2013 league campaign this Sunday in Pearse Stadium (2pm), and they do so in the best possible way, with a home game against All-Ireland and league champions Kilkenny.
The Leinster colleges championship gets underway today (Friday) with a number of local schools in action. Athlone Community College take on Ardscoil na Trionoide in AIT at 1pm. While the Community College were victorious in the north Leinster League, championship provides an even greater challenge and this opening game is very much a banana skin for the league champions.
On a weekend that promised so much for all connected with Taughmaconnell, with the hurlers and footballers both contesting senior county finals, ultimately it ended in disappointment as neither side managed to bring home the coveted silverware.
Salthill/Knocknacarra enjoy a 100 per cent history of success in the Connacht club championship and they will put that impressive record on the line in four weeks’ time when they face either Roscommon’s St Brigid's or Leitrim’s Melvin Gaels on Sunday November 11 in the Connacht club semi-final.
Following last weekend's exciting 1-13 to 0-16 draw in Ballinasloe, Mullagh and Loughrea must do it all again this Sunday (2.30pm) in Athenry.
