Sunday's Connacht club final set to be a cracker in Castlebar

The eagerly anticipated AIB Connacht senior Football Club Championship final between Corofin and Mayo champions Ballintubber takes place this Sunday (2pm) at MacHale Park, Castlebar.

Corofin learnt little last weekend

Corofin will enter the Connacht final against Ballintubber on Sunday week with no real test from the last three games. And, might it be fair to say, that also applies to this season’s Galway championship?

Achill have set-up a fairytale Connacht Junior final against Aran Islands

Anytime you win a county senior title is a good time but there are certain times when it can be more favourable than others.

Reality bites

A week seems a long time in sport, when I sat down to watch the All-Ireland hurling final replay on Saturday evening last I could not believe it was only six short days after Mayo’s agonising one point defeat to Dublin in the football final, it now seems like the game was on about three months ago. The evenings are getting shorter and for the players unfortunately reality bites. It is a horrible feeling, most of them would have taken the week off work to either celebrate or simply drown their sorrows, and to wake up last Monday morning and return to their daily lives is really the hard part for them especially as they left without the holy grail. It is very depressing. I have to commend the two O’Sheas and Robbie Hennelly who were very giving of their time to supporters after the Breaffy and Charlestown league match last Sunday, signing every autograph and taking part for every picture request.

Experience comes to the fore

You can’t beat experience or class. Despite the flamboyance and arrogance of youth, the old experienced warhorse who’s been there, done that, invariably realises that something clever is required if his team is going to prevail. And so it was last Sunday with Charlestown edging past Castlebar, just when some might have felt a shock was on the cards. In Crossmolina’s case in our semi-final defeat to Knockmore it looked as though we had too much experience and not enough youthful exuberance. Last Sunday Castlebar had plenty of youthful energy around the field, but when the game was there to be won, Charlestown had that little bit of guile and know-how to close out the deal. With all their experience they knew how to win this game and advance to yet another county final.

Some confidence displayed in Westmeath hospitality sector

After the recent re-opening of the Austin Friars Hotel in the centre of Mullingar, its neighbour the Annebrook Hotel continues the positive trend by converting 121sqm of its premises on the first floor from an aparthotel into a fitness spa, after it was granted permission to do so by the county council this week.
