Things could hardly have been tighter when all was said and done in group one of the intermediate football championship back at the tail end of June. Three of the four teams in the group were locked together on four points each with only two places in the last eight up for grabs. When the scoring differences were counted up, Moy Davitts topped the group with plus-16 points, while just a solitary point separated Belmullet and Kilmaine, with the north Mayo mens socring difference of plus-3 just edging out the south Mayo side with their plus-2.
"If your feet are in the past, you haven't a leg to stand on in the present," said Ardnaree manager Declan O'Dea this week, when speaking to the Mayo Advertiser about his side's upcoming junior championship semi-final against fellow north Mayo men Ardagh. O'Dea is back in charge of Ardnaree this year after a few years' sabbatical from the post. Ardnaree haven't won the junior championship since 1971 and bringing the Pete McDonnell Cup back to home is something that has gone on too long for all those concerned. Ardnaree have lost three finals in recent times going down in the 2009, 2011 and 2012 deciders, and they're back this year for another crack at glory.

"Brian's a fierce competitor and he'd fight for every ball there, whether it's a Galway ball or a Kilkenny ball - and so would I. The thing we'd love to be doing is still playing," says Galway hurling manager Anthony Cunningham of his Kilkenny opposite Brian Cody.
Joe Canning v Joey Holden
He is one of the hardest, toughest, defenders you are likely to come across on the field of play, the kind of guy who puts his head in where it hurts, without consideration for his own wellbeing in the pursuit of victory. His hard hits are legendary, with the shoulder he put in on Damien Comer in last year's Connacht championship meeting between Mayo and Galway being felt right back up to the rafters in the stand in MacHale Park. But when you meet Colm Boyle off the field, he is one of the nicest fellows you could meet. Boyle has become a regular of the Mayo senior team press events and he is always courteous with his time and willing to ask whatever questions are put to him. For a guy who thought six year ago his inter-county career might have been over, he has become one of the backbones of Mayo success over the last half a decade.
