Fr Rocks, Cookstown 1-8
It was only a matter of weeks ago that the curtain came down on the club scene in Mayo for 2012 and now on the second Sunday in January, the curtain is coming back up on the inter-county season for 2013.

Donegal were the best team in the country all year and deserved their All-Ireland success.

A strange feeling swept across Croke Park on Sunday afternoon as Joe Canning's 73rd minute point ensured a first All-Ireland SHC draw since 1959. The overriding feeling among the Galway squad afterwards was relief at getting a second bite at the cherry.
