Mayo manager James Horan, summed up the feelings of everyone about the location of next Saturday’s All Ireland semi-final replay on Sunday evening after Mayo’s draw with Kerry.
Kiltimagh could have a company with a 150 strong workforce set up in the morning, thanks to having a state-of-the art enterprise ready office building with fibre broadband, something that is not available in Castlebar. That is something that the county town needs if it is to be serious about attracting new businesses, the members of Castlebar Town Council were told last week.
XFor more years than I can care to remember, I found myself on Friday afternoons walking out past Tirellan, finding my slot, dropping my bag down on the path, pushing out my chest, flicking the hair out of my eyes (sighs), and sticking out my thumb. In those days, it was the nearest we got to the Kerouac idea — taking your chances with the generosity of strangers and engrossing yourself in a conversation that, like the free ride, could take you anywhere.
Athlone u16 footballers put in an inspired second half performance to see off the challenge of a highly fancied Coralstown/Kinnegad side in the precursor to the senior final replay last Sunday.

Not everything was wasted during the Celtic Tiger years. Galway has benefited greatly from the motorway to Dublin, as well as the Gort by-pass, which gives motorists a clear run to Limerick on the impressive M18. No one will be sorry to see the end of the Crusheen right-angled turn under an impossible railway bridge. Artics needed the whole road to make the turn, causing delays and gasps of incredulity at the narrowness and the danger of it all.
