Newly crowned Westmeath champions St Loman’s and experienced Roscommon kingpins St Brigid’s both got their respective provincial campaign off to a winning start last weekend. The Mullingar side had to fight hard for their one-point win over Carlow’s Old Leighlin while it was all too easy for St Brigid’s who were never tested by disappointing Sligo champions Tourlestrane.
When Kiltane were relegated from the senior championship at the tail end of last year by Ballina Stephenites, the Bangor club’s proud record of retaining their senior status against the odds lay in tatters. But the proud men of Erris were not going to take the disappointment lying down and they set about ensuring that they were back with the big guns of club football in Mayo as soon as possible, and they achieved that a couple of weeks ago, by claiming the Sweeney Cup in some style.
It is a battle of north and south on Sunday afternoon in MacHale Park when Kiltane and Kilmaine go into battle for the Egan Jewellers Mayo GAA intermediate football championship at 3.30pm.
We’re creatures of habit in this country. Not ones for moving away from the norm. This is especially true when it comes to socialising. We go out at the same time to meet the same people, frequent the same establishments and drink the same drinks. During the summer we might throw a concert or two into the mix. But for the most part we don’t exercise our cultural minds.
In 1947 the Railway Cup crossed the Shannon for the first time. The team were all from Galway. They had beaten Leinster in the semi-final by a score of 2 – 6 to 2 – 5. The man of the match in that game was Paddy Gantley. He gave another memorable display on Easter Sunday when he lined out against Munster in the final. His name used to appear on match programmes as ‘P. Gardiner’ because he was a priest, and not supposed to play hurling.
Mayo’s David O’Loughlin returns home as part of a five-man An Post Sean Kelly team that have high hopes of continuing their recent good form in Europe, back on home soil. O’Loughlin competed in the 4km track pursuit at the 2008 Beijing Olympics and won his and Ireland's first ever UCI Track World Cup medal when taking the 4km Individual Pursuit bronze at the Beijing World Cup meet in January, and followed this with a silver medal at the Copenhagen World Cup meet in Denmark.
Last weekend was a busy one on the playing fields of Westmeath and Roscommon with a number of quarter final matches down for decision. Tyrrellspass secured a semi-final spot thanks to their 1-13 to 0-10 win over a gallant Maryland. Most pundits expected the Pass to breeze through against surprise quarter-finalists Maryland. In the end they did, even if they were outplayed in the opening half and it looked as though a shock was on the cards. Finbar Egan’s men deserve credit for the way they took the game to Tyrrellspass in the opening half, leading by five points at one stage and 0-6 to 0-3 at the break.
