The only Mayo side to have been afforded the luxury of a draw in this weekend’s fourth round of the Connacht Cup is Iorras Aontaithe who will entertain Galway League side St Brendan’s on Sunday in the Barony of Erris. The other half- a-dozen Mayo sides left in the competition will all be packing up and heading all over the province as they look for a place in the fifth round of the competition. Castlebar Celtic will be hoping they will have a happy trip north when they take on Sligo League outfit Aclare Celtic. Last year’s Connacht Shield winners and Mayo League Premier A champions Ballyheane have been riding a wave of success this past 12 months and they hope it will continue on Sunday when they face West United from the Galway Premier League. While Ballyheane face the men from West United, the defending champions Westport United will also face Galway opposition in the shape of East United. Manulla will also be heading to Galway city to take on Mervue United in what looks to be a very tricky away tie for the men from Carramore. Also on the road on Sunday are Charlestown Athletic who will be looking to keep up their surprise run to this stage when they take on Loughrea in the fifth round. The action in the cup for Mayo sides actually gets under way on Saturday night when Fahy Rovers take on Shiven Rovers from the Roscommon and District League at 7.30pm.
Ballina Town are on the look out for a new manager following the news that Brendan Kenny has decided to step down form the position of manager. Kenny who led Ballina Town to back to back Super League titles stood down this week following Ballina’s elimination from the FAI Junior Cup last weekend. He told the Mayo Advertiser this week that, “It’s been a great four years with the lads, but I think it was time to step away. It’s been all go in the Mayo League because your going all year round and I feel like I have brought them as far as I can. A big thing for me was retaining the Super League title, but I don’t have the energy to give it all the time you need anymore so I’m taking a step back. I’ve been there for four years now and the lads need a new fresh voice to push them on further, and it’s a great opportunity for a manager to come to a side who are the top of the tree in Mayo. The club has come on leaps and bounds over the last few years not just off the pitch, we have the new club house and the astro turf which is a great credit to all those involved and I’m pleased to have been involved in that.”
