The last time that Mayo lost in the Connacht championship was back in 2010, back then Davitts' flying wing-back Colm Boyle had fallen out of favour with the then Mayo management and it was another two years before he returned to the fold under James Horan. Boyle did not make it to that game as a supporter he said last week. "No I missed it, I was at a wedding the same day," but like many a summer wedding in Ireland he was one of a few missing in action from part of the celebrations, adding that he did see it on TV. "I missed the dinner over it."
A two goal first half salvo from Aidan O’Shea inspired Breaffy to their first win in the Mayo GAA Senior Football League this season as they saw off local rivals Castlebar Mitchels in Munnelly Park in Castlebar on Sunday. Both sides lined out with out key players for this contest with Seamus O’Shea serving a one match suspension for Breaffy after being dismissed early in their loss to Ballintubber a fortnight ago, while for Castlebar Mitchels neither Tom Cunniffe or Patrick Durcan were available for selection.
Medtronic junior hurlers narrowly lost by 0-13 to 1-8 to a strong Limerick Prison Officers/CLG amalgamation in the All Ireland junior hurling final in Ardrahan.
It’s amazing how a Kilkenny supporter’s mind works. Making my way back to the car last Saturday evening after the Cats had dished out another hammering to Wexford I asked a few fans for their thoughts, thinking that an 11-point victory would have left them content, how wrong I was.
If last Sunday’s hurling action is anything to go by we are in for one hell of a summer. After watching some tame games during the league I must admit I was worried that we would live in the shadow of football again this year. However, after last Sunday it looks as though the hurlers can give the big ball players a good run for their money this year.
To say I am lost for words after Kilkenny’s dismal display last Sunday is putting it very mildly. The defeat is one thing but the manner of it is of more concern. First things first, hats off to Dublin on winning their first National League title since 1939 they were truly magnificent on the day and thoroughly deserved their victory.
With the World Cup now in full swing next Sunday’s Leinster hurling semi-finals are almost slipping in under the radar. Kilkenny who have not seen competitive action for some time now finally get a chance to strut their stuff.
The Kilkenny Camogie team got one over on their male counterparts already this year by quietly slipping into another league final. They seemed to come back from a no win situation last Saturday in Tullamore.
Kilkenny intermediates’ great victory over Dublin after extra time last Saturday afternoon means once again it's a clean sweep of provincial titles. This achievement in itself would satisfy most hurling counties, but in Kilkenny the players are only too aware that their greatness is judged on their ability to land All-Ireland titles. Pressure it may be but that's the reality you face when you pull on the famous black and amber shirt. This Sunday, both the seniors and minors head to Croker hoping they can get the job done which would give them a tilt at All-Ireland glory.
Last Sunday’s Munster championship clash between old foes Tipperary and Cork was definitely a game of two halves if ever I saw one.
