The Mayo League season will kick off on Sunday with the now traditional Charity Shield clash in Milebush Park.

This year’s chosen charity is CF West and all funds raised from Sunday’s game will be donated to CF West towards its building fund to try to build a CF day unit on the grounds of Mayo General Hospital.

Three games in and it is so far so good for Castlebar Celtic in the Bus Éireann Women’s National League. Jeremy Dee’s charges have five points on the table and are unbeaten thanks to a win and two draws so far. Their latest point came after another long trip away to Cork Women’s FC which leaves them well placed in the table. On Sunday, Celtic will face another tough test when Peamount United come to town. The Dublin side are one of the top women’s side in the game and recently were in UEFA European action representing Ireland. Aileen Gilroy and Shauna Jackson were the scorers for Celtic last weekend in their hard fought draw. This weekend’s opponents saw off the challenge of the Cork side, Celtic drew with on a 6-1 scoreline on the opening day of the league, they followed that up with a 7-0 over Wexford Youths (another side whom Celtic have drawn with this term). However they are coming off the back of a 4-1 defeat at the hands of Raheny United last weekend and will be looking to get back on track against Celtic. The game against Peamount United is scheduled to kick off in Celtic Park at 2pm on Sunday, December 4.
People across Mayo were rallied to get involved in the National Day of Volunteering which takes place on Friday September 30. Last year more than 8,000 volunteers participated in hundreds of charity and community projects across Mayo and the country – and an even bigger number is anticipated this year. Research carried out by Volunteer Ireland in advance of the National Day of Volunteering has found that being affected by the economic downturn makes people more likely to volunteer. The flagship event of this year’s NDV is a national ‘Knit-a-thon’ which will see hundreds of knitters across the country attempt to break the world record for the most number of people knitting simultaneously. In Mayo, Knit-a-thons will take place in Tacu Family Resource Centre, Ballinrobe, and Le Chéile Family Resource Centre, Castlebar. For information call Marie Munnelly, manager, Mayo Volunteer Centre, 087 755 5899 or Shauna Jackson, outreach/placement officer, Mayo Volunteer Centre, 087 679 6937.
