Dream ends for Lahardane and Tooreen

Sadly, it wasn’t to be for either Lahardane MacHales or Tooreen in their respective All-Ireland semi-final contests this afternoon. Lahardane lost narrowly to Multyfarnham of Westmeath in their All-Ireland JFC semi-final at Hyde Park while Tooreen were well beaten by Kilkenny’s Ballyragget in their All-Ireland IHC semi-final at Cusack Park in Ennis.

This year’s county champions beat Galway’s Ballinderreen today by […]

Three-in-a-row for mighty Mitchels

Photo: @MayoGAA Castlebar Mitchels had to battle all the way in today’s county senior football championship decider against Ballintubber at MacHale Park. But battle they did, finally edging home by two points on a 0-15 to 0-13 scoreline. I must admit I fancied Ballintubber – who’d beaten Mitchels in each of their three previous final clashes in recent years – […]
