No home comforts for the Sarsfields

Charlestown’s hopes of landing a second provincial title this decade were dashed in fairly emphatic fashion on their own turf at Fr O’Hara Park this afternoon.  Defending champions Corofin hit the Sarsfields with a goal after just three minutes and although the Mayo champions were still only that goal in arrears at half-time, they couldn’t live with the Galway lads […]
