The plan for the next while

Over a week has now passed since our early exit from this year’s championship. In that time the world has moved on and so too has the championship.

How and why this […]

Ladies League semi-final details plus other stuff

Here’s a quick run-down on the list of winners that were revealed at last night’s event.

Kevin’s back

The Westport defender tore his cruciate in the early stages of the Intermediate club All-Ireland final back in February and he’s been on the long and lonely […]
