Former FAI president Pat Quigley was not re-elected to the Mayo League management committee at its AGM on Tuesday night.

Mayo booked their place in the semifinal of the Connacht u21 Football Championship on Wednesday night with an 11 point win over Leitrim in Castlebar.
In October 2007 he stood on the field in Croke Park after his Mayo ladies’ side had just lost to Cork in the All Ireland final, taking in what went wrong. After guiding Mayo that close to the summit, Frank Browne would have been planning to have another crack at the title the next year, but that was not how things worked out as Mayo entered a number of years of flux with half a dozen managers taking charge over a short number of years.

Reigning county and all-Ireland club champions St Brigid’s begin the defence of their titles as the Roscommon senior football championship kicks off this weekend. The Saints have home advantage when they meet Western Gaels in Kiltoom on Saturday evening at 7pm. Naturally Brigid’s will be hot favourites to retain their title, but with Frankie Dolan and Cathal McHugh amongst others who will not feature in the opening round I expect Western Gaels to push them close.
I sent a text to a Dublin friend of mine at half time during Mayo’s match against Down last Saturday telling him that, for the first time ever while following Mayo teams in Croke Park, I was going to sit back, relax, and enjoy the second half safe in the knowledge that we had almost definitely secured our place in the last four.
