Andy’s double clinches sensational comeback win

When we were eight points behind, as well as a man down, midway through the second half of this afternoon’s lively FBD League encounter against Roscommon at Kiltoom, it was all looking more than a little grim. Indeed, with all the momentum with the home team a bit of a paddling seemed to be in […]

The weekend’s action

The weekend is upon us once again and more on-field activity awaits. The U21s play tomorrow and then the seniors take the field on Sunday. The U21s have their second match in the North-West Cup. This one is against Donegal, which throws in at James Stephens Park in Ballina tomorrow at 2.30pm. With both of […]

Reinforcements in line for recall to face the Rossies

Photo: So the winter suntans are fading fast and our first proper inter-county match of the year takes place this coming Sunday, against Roscommon in Kiltoom (throw-in 2pm). The game will most likely be our final pre-season one, as only a right thumping of the Rossies will be enough for us to make the […]

Freeman firing in first win of the year

Photo: James Stephens Park in Ballina was the venue today for the county’s second outing in this year’s pre-season FBD League. A winning run-out it proved to be too with the lads never really troubled at any stage as they ambled to a six-point win over the students. It finished 1-21 to 1-15. You’ll forgive […]

Losing start for U21s

The U21s’ belated start to this year’s North-West Cup ended in defeat this evening at the Sligo GAA Centre of Excellence. Under the lights at Scarden it was the home team that came out on top, winning by 2-5 to 0-10. Most of the damage seems to have been done in the first half when […]

Weekend’s action approaching

It’s Thursday already and, with the weekend drawing near, so too is the action slated for Saturday and Sunday. Mind you, the snow’s apparently on the way too, though the worst of the cold blast appears to be due to hit later on today and tomorrow so maybe playing conditions will be okay for the weekend. […]

Monday match reports

Photo: It’s Monday, there was a game yesterday so, yes folks, that can only mean one thing – the return of the Monday match reports. Because it’s only the FBD the pickings are a bit on the miserly side but here they are. Locals: Mayo Advertiser, Connaught Telegraph. Nationals: Irish Independent, Irish Times, Irish […]

Students tops in shootout

Photo: @L0ftus21 The FBD League is traditionally a time for experimentation but, with almost the entire 2016 senior panel away on holidays at the minute, 2017 started this afternoon for Stephen Rochford and his selectors with the most comprehensive appraisal of fringe players seen for many years. Given this, it’s not surprising that the county’s […]
