Does anyone know anything about Mayo Olympians?

Okay, that last post set off a fair few unexpected spats so maybe it’s time to change the subject.  Personally, I blame the lack of football for all this online tetchiness and I don’t think that Sunday’s FBD World Series Final will adequately fill the gap in that respect either.  Me, I’m off to Parnell […]

Catching up

I’m back on Holy Ground for the first time in a while and back on broadband too (Digital Divide how are you?) so I’m gradually starting to catch up with stuff, even if it means that work is beginning to catch up with me too. The minor team for Sunday will be announced tomorrow or […]

Holiday time again

We’re heading off on hols in the morning, down to the far south-west of the country where I’m reliably informed that the internet hasn’t been invented yet.  As a result, things are likely to be quiet enough here for the next week or so. Just to keep you all going, though, I’ve stuck up a […]

Mini-League Week 6: head-to-head rule unlikely to be needed + Good Friday challenge

We’re approaching the finishing line in this year’s NFL mini-league and, unless he comes a cropper at the final fence, Mick C is going to win with a bit to spare.  He’s got 63 points to spare on Barney in second place and with only one full weekend of action (plus the two finals themselves […]

Happy Christmas one and all

Well, here it is once again folks and once again I’m reaching for the corkscrew to open a rather nice Christmas bottle of red wine and proceed to get more than a little mellow by the fireside.  But before I do (and having brought to your attention the match report on and the post-match quotes […]

Championship Man set for literary debut in Aghamore

Liam Horan has been on to tell me that his alter ego Championship Man will be making his inaugural appearance on the literary circuit when he takes to the boards at the Kenny-Naughton Autumn School this coming weekend in the picturesque village of Aghamore.  I haven’t got a full programme for the event itself but […]

London’s calling

Well, the environs of it at any rate.  We’re all off to Blighty early in the morning for the weekend and we’re planning to make it down to Central London at some point tomorrow where what’s in the picture is firmly on the agenda. With a bit of luck, we’ll have confirmation shortly as to […]

Things of interest

One of the nice aspects about this self-appointed position of mine is that people tell you things, things that they want others to know, which in turn gives me things to write about.  And so the world goes round.  I’ve had a few of these in the inbox this week so, in no particular order, […]

Sligo lads sound up for it + Conor for President?

Sligo’s U21 manager Fergal O’Flaherty is in fighting form in this morning’s Indo where he insists that his charges have every chance of landing their first provincial title at this level when they face our lads in Markievicz Park tomorrow evening.  He says his players have the right attitude and that they’re not interested in […]

Face that ball!

Okay, given the day of the week what’s in it, I think it might be appropriate to bring something TGIF-ish to your attention.  I got an email the other day from the creator (who, incidentally, is a Mayoman) of a website called, which is a GAA (and rugby) prediction league website that he’s just […]
