Theres no doubt that it has been an incredible journey for our own Sheridans Cheesemongers. After starting out selling Irish farmhouse cheese on a market stall in Galway almost 25 years ago, the Sheridan brothers' operation has grown, and Sheridans Cheesemongers can now be found in shops in Galway, Dublin, Waterford, and Meath. Their ethos is about providing quality farmhouse cheese to customers and they have always been enthusiastic supporters of raw milk cheese, quality producers, and the traditions of Irish food.
Who wouldn't want more of what they saw in MacHale Park last Saturday night between Castlebar Mitchels and Ballintubber?
The first two spots in the semi-finals of the Mayo senior football championship were clinched on Saturday night in MacHale park with Breaffy and Ballintubber taking their places in the final four.
Dear me, not again. The winners of this year’s Sam Maguire will have their name etched on the famous trophy but there is absolutely no doubt Mayo’s 2017 championship campaign will command the most paragraphs in the championship 2017 yearbook. Bizarre does not even go close to explaining it. Mayo supporters again travelled in their tens of thousands clogging the N5 and N4 all the way to the capital from early morning. It is very obvious that football is more important than Christmas for the supporters of the green and red who now have to contend with a ninth championship game in 2017 after another heart stopping semifinal clash with Kerry in Croke Park. They will not have a cent left for the festive period.
With Mayo's place in division one secure for next season it was nice to sit back, relax, and enjoy the league finals played in glorious sunshine in Croke Park last weekend. I was on co-commentary for Radio One for the Kildare and Galway game on Sunday which felt like a friendly encounter for the first half, however it did liven up for the second period.
Mayo's 2017 league opener ended in defeat to an aggressive and physical Monaghan in Castlebar last Saturday evening. Despite my declaration last week that Mayo should target the national league for silverware, the target very much now is about survival. Again applause must be given to the 11,000 or so hardy souls who turned out to support the team. The basis for this first round defeat is pure and simple, Monaghan were better prepared and had a better pre season as it was purely obvious going into the final quarter that they had spent more time on the paddock than Stephen Rochford's team.
MENTION GALWAY to Eddi Reader, and the Scottish singer is likely to go into a rhapsody about the city and county - and with good reason, it’s a place that appreciates her voice and music; it’s somewhere she has played often; and a region of deeply personal significance for her.
The Laochra Gael series is one of the most popular and enjoyable GAA programmes on TG4, and it comes to an end this Sunday with the final programme featuring the Meehan brothers from the Caltra GAA Club.
Across the Irish sea at Rally GB held in Wales, the final round of the World Rally Championships, Mayo members Pauric Duffy and Kevin Glynn in the Killian Duffy managed P1 Rally Rentals Ford Fiesta, finished the three day event in 52nd place overall, this was after the Fiesta left the road during Saturday’s wet and extremely difficult gravel stages and ended up on its roof but the hard working service team led by Philip Case got the car repaired overnight and back out in action under Rally 2 on Sunday morning, where the boys recorded a good result in the difficult conditions.
