League campaign over for Evan

Photo: Yesterday’s confirmation that Evan Regan had suffered a “facial bone fracture and concussion injury” arising from that disgusting, late hit by Kerry’s Ronan Shanahan the last night means that a player bedevilled with serious injury is once more consigned to the sidelines. The Mayo News (paper and digital variants) reports this morning that Evan is likely to be […]

Some team news ahead of the Kerry game

Time to start looking ahead, if you haven’t already begun to do so, to our next match in this year’s National Football League. It’s Kerry for us in this one, under the lights at at MacHale Park on Saturday evening (throw-in 7pm). I guess we’ll be naming our team as usual on Friday evening but ahead of that there are a […]

David Gough to ref the replay
