As a result of the torrential rain all weekend a number of games were pulled for the safety of the players. However, those that did go ahead threw up some cracking ties amid the shocking conditions. In the Elverys Sports Super League, Castlebar Celtic had gone into an early lead thanks to a Jordan Loftus goal after only 20 seconds, but with the rain getting heavier and the surface water in Celtic Park causing problems, referee Jimmy Cawley called both sets of players aside and abandoned the game after only nine minutes. Westport Utd were pushed all the way by Iorrais Aontaithe on Saturday night in what can only be described as a thriller. And the star of the show most definitely was Phil Keegan who bagged a hat-trick in a stunning display. Deadlocked at 2-2 at the break the Covies found something extra after the break with Keegan grabbing the late winner. Dave Cameron also got in on the act for Westport, with Ivan Barrett (two) and Kyle O’Reilly on target for Iorrais Aontaithe.

Judge Mary Devins struck out a case against a 69-year-old retired man who was detected driving a car without insurance, driving licence, tax, or NCT after hearing evidence from the owner of the car. Judge Devins had adjourned the case on October 6, after Garda Shane Cuffe told the court that he stopped Tom Leneghan, 12 Station Rise, Ballyhaunis, driving a car on the Knock Road, Ballyhaunis, at 4.05pm on May 11 2009. The court was told that Leneghan was a 69-year-old retired man who helped out a cattle dealer friend and never drove himself. He had got a call from the owner of the car to come and help him as there was a cow stuck in a drain and the owner told him to take the car.
