Rovers look to topple the town
It would be a brave man who would predict the outcome of the Tonra Cup on Sunday afternoon in Milebush Park. Both Achill Rovers and Ballyhaunis Town have only picked up one defeat all season and they remain in the hunt for promotion to Premier A. Off the field Achill Rovers have been creating headlines as they captured the prestigious FAI Club of the Year on Friday at the awards ceremony in the Clarion Hotel in Sligo.
Tribesmen fall short at final hurdle
It was a bitter-sweet day for the Galway Tribesmen Rugby League club on Saturday. Creating history when hosting the first Munster/Connacht Rugby League final outside of Limerick, the Tribesmen also fell short against the Titans of Limerick by 28-18.

Connelly wary of Sligo attacking threat
While Mayo head into Sunday's Connacht final as favourites, joint Mayo manager Noel Connelly is not taking anything for granted and he is very keenly aware that Sligo will pose a serious threat to his side's ambitions of claiming a 46th Connacht title. Sligo's performance against Roscommon and particularly that of their inside forwards impressed the Hollymount-Carramore clubman. "They were the underdogs, Roscommon were the hot favourites after winning the division two league final. Sligo had won three and lost three in division three, but they were the highest scoring county team in all the leagues, also they used very few players outside the 17 or 18, so they are a very settled team, a very young team, and they played with great belief and no fear, and led from the off. Nobody could say they weren't deserving winners," he said.
Greeting from the border line
It is not the Connacht final we expected to see but it certainly is one that has been widely anticipated after Sligo threw away the form book when comprehensively disposing of Roscommon in the semi final. It is slightly ironic that it is the 40th anniversary of Sligo’s famous win against Mayo in the final. The big question on everybody’s lips is will they be able to produce again against the current Connacht kingpins to prevent the green and red going for an unprecedented five in a row.
Galway minors bid to end eight year gap on Sunday

Little Shop of Horrors - as you’ve never seen it before
YOU MAY have seen Roger Corman’s 1960 film Little Shop of Horrors, but when it plays at the Galway International Arts Festival this month, you will never have seen it done like this before.
Result was more than a minor surprise
I thought I was hearing things when I tuned into Midwest radio last Saturday evening to see how our minors were getting on against our bitter rivals Galway. I did not make it to the game because of the lure of what was on TV as I wanted to see how Roscommon would respond after their embarrassing defeat at the hands of Sligo. Mayo’s defeat to Galway by a whopping 17 points has to go down as one of the darkest days in Mayo football at minor level. I do not recall any Mayo minor team taking a pasting of that magnitude.
