Wonderful Westport win it in extra-time

Photo: @AIB_GAA Marketing campaigns, by their nature, tend towards vacuous twaddle but the one about the club championships being the toughest is more accurate than most. This was illustrated down at Cusack Park, Ennis, this afternoon when unfancied Westport slugged it out in the rain with Kenmare, eventually winning their All-Ireland IFC club semi-final after extra-time by 1-10 to 0-11.

Monday match reports

Photo: MichaelMaye.com It’s another cracking morning out there weather-wise and there’s the coverage from yesterday’s feisty and thoroughly entertaining FBD League encounter with Roscommon to wade through.

Mayo 0-15 Dublin 2-9: heroic fightback secures second shot at Sam

We’re still alive. And still standing. Twice in today’s All-Ireland final, it looked like the game was gone beyond us but both times we clawed our way back into it.
