There’s not much in the papers today about yesterday’s FBD defeat, though the Indo has a match report which contains a quote from Johnno about his frustration at being denied the services of players who will be representing third-level institutions rather than their county all this month. It’s a fair enough point, though it’s the same story for Galway and Roscommon, both of whom started out with wins. The Rossies completely blew away the challenge of Sligo IT yesterday, a team which, incidentally, had Tom Parsons playing for them in midfield. We’d do well to keep an eye on how the Sheepstealers shape up in the early part of this year, what with that likely Connacht semi-final clash with them in June.
If it’s a proper match report of that clash with NUIG that you want, however, then check out this comprehensive one provided by my fellow Mayo GAA blogger No one Shouted Stop! It looked like somebody had shouted stop as the same man had been been silent for months but it’s great to see him back in action once again.
