A moment of quality in this contest saw Mayo claim their second Connacht junior title in as many years in Carrick-on-Shannon on Sunday afternoon. After a slow paced first half where Mayo went in leading by 0-5 to 0-4 thanks to the accuracy from Darren Coen’s placed balls, the second half had more excitement for the crowds who made their way to the Leitrim capital.
It wasn’t a classic, by any means, but Hollymount-Carramore won’t care a thing about that. When they hit the training field on the cold and wet nights in south Mayo at the start of this year, there was only one objective in their minds and they achieved that in MacHale Park on Sunday. After being on the losing side in last years final, they were determined to put that wrong to right and they did that with a hard working performance.
This one should be special, just as in the junior final that precedes it, the local rivalry between both sides will add something special to Sunday's intermediate final. Hollymount-Carramore and The Neale have crossed swords plenty of times down through the years, but never with this much at stake.
Just three years on from claiming their first ever adult county title in their then 110 year history when they won a dramatic junior final, after extra time and in a replay. The Neale who have a pyramid on their club crest, took another step on the Mayo GAA pyramid when they booked their place in this years intermediate championship final.
With six minutes to go in Elverys MacHale Park on Saturday evening, Burrishoole’s number three Paddy Mulchrone got on the end of a move started by Liam O’Malley to palm the ball to the back of the net and put his side just one point down in this game and in a great position heading down the home stretch. But The Neale held their nerve and outscored the West Mayo men by 0-4 to 0-1 over the closing six minutes to book their place in this years intermediate championship’s final four.
