Club championship round-up

While us supporters were still getting our heads around another All-Ireland final day tragedy, county players were returning back to their clubs and joining forces once more with their hard-working club comrades. Last weekend had it all – the Senior and Intermediate groups were being tidied up while the weekend also was host to county finals and relegation play-offs, making […]

Postpone next weekend’s club matches

Photo: A debate has begun to bubble up – here and elsewhere – about the planned round of club championship matches fixed for this coming weekend.

Everything that could go wrong for Mitchels today did go wrong. After fluffing a few early chances to […]

Injuries and availability update

Photo: It’s almost two weeks until our next League outing – another tough one, away to table-topping Donegal up at Ballybofey on the last Sunday of the month – but it’s still worth having a quick look at the current situation on the injury/availability front. Let’s start by stating the obvious: Castlebar Mitchels’ heroics up at Breffni Park on […]
