Delight for Na Brídeoga, despair for MacHale Rovers

It was a case of contrasting fortunes for the two Mayo clubs in All-Ireland final action this afternoon, with the camogie players of Na Brídeoga ending the day on a high while the footballers of CL MacHale Rovers were left to nurse a heartbreaking one-point loss after extra-time. I’ve very little information to share, I’m afraid, about today’s All-Ireland Junior […]

Two ladies club All-Irelands this weekend

The Christmas decorations are starting to go up but the on-field action at club level for 2019 still isn’t over. This weekend, from the county’s perspective, it’s the turn of the ladies with two separate All-Ireland final contests down for decision on Sunday. The first of these is the Junior B All-Ireland camogie final where East Mayo camogie club Na […]

Connacht crowns for Kilmaine and Tooreen

Meat Loaf reckoned that two out of three should never be considered a bad return. So it was this weekend with Mayo teams involved in Connacht club finals, as Kilmaine and Tooreen claimed provincial titles while The Neale came up short in their Connacht decider. Kilmaine’s match – the Connacht Junior club final against Sligo’s St Michael’s – was the […]

Provincial club finals coming up

More club dates for your diaries, this time involving matches with some silverware on offer. This coming Saturday at MacHale Park, the Connacht Intermediate and Junior football finals are being contested. The county has skin in both games, with Kilmaine bidding for provincial glory in the JFC decider while neighbours The Neale have their sights set on the Connacht IFC […]

The weekend’s matches

It was three wins out of four for teams from the county who were involved in club Championship action over the weekend. The Neale and Kilmaine both had big wins yesterday, while MacHale Rovers qualified for the LGFA Junior final today. Ballintubber lost out to Corofin this afternoon but they went down fighting. Let’s start, for a change, with the […]

Today’s club results

This is just a quick one to confirm two club championship results from matches played today involving clubs from the county. Both were winning performances too. First up it’s Tooreen who began their Connacht Intermediate hurling championship campaign this afternoon at Athleague with a win over Four Roads of Roscommon. As the photo above confirms, Tooreen came out on top […]

Tooreen’s three-in-a-row + the rest of the weekend’s results

At MacHale Park this afternoon Tooreen clinched their third county SHC title in a row, beating Castlebar Mitchels by 0-18 to 1-13. It was the East Mayo club’s 30th county title but they were made to battle hard by the underdogs today before eventually getting their hands on the TJ Tyrell Cup. Tooreen led by three points at the break […]
