Sligo win sends Minors through

The county’s Minors finished up their group matches last weekend in this year’s Connacht MFC, with their hopes of advancing to the semi-final dependent on the result of this evening’s final round match between Sligo and Roscommon at Markievicz Park. We needed Sligo to win tonight to make it through ahead of Roscommon while a win for the young Rossies […]

Minors and Juniors face Galway this weekend

All the talk is, I know, of Páirc Esler on Saturday week and all that entails but before all that there are two matches of interest down for decision this weekend. Tomorrow evening the Minors are back in Connacht MFC action, with a Round 4 tie against Galway scheduled for MacHale Park where throw-in is 7.30pm. The Minors started their […]

Two losses and a draw

I think it’s safe to say that the weekend’s results for the three county teams that were in action didn’t go the desired way. On Friday evening the Minors went under to Sligo in Round 3 of the Connacht MFC, losing out at Markievicz Park by 0-16 to 0-12. It was our lads’ first defeat of the campaign, as well […]

It’s Sligo on the double this weekend

Inter-county activity continues for the county this weekend, with both the Minors and the hurlers in Championship action. The Minors are going really well in this year’s Connacht Championship, having recorded big wins over Leitrim and Roscommon in their first two round robin matches. Indeed, at this early stage they’re the only undefeated county in this year’s Connacht MFC and […]

Major win for the Minors

This evening’s Connacht MFC Round 2 clash with Roscommon at James Stephens Park in Ballina was obviously looked upon in advance as a bigger test for the county’s Minors compared to their opening round meeting with Leitrim a week ago. This was because the same evening the young Rossies had beaten fancied Galway by two points, to start their U17 […]

Arrangements for tomorrow evening

I’m in a bit of an odd mindset ahead of tomorrow evening’s match against Roscommon, for the simple fact that I’m not going to be there. Nor have I any hope of following the game from a distance either. Lookit, it’s not the first Championship match involving us that I’ve missed in recent years. Doubtless it won’t be the last […]

Feast of football on Saturday

This can often be an odd time of the year from a football perspective, with the Championship up and running but at the same time not enough action to get your teeth into. That shouldn’t be a complaint for punters heading to MacHale Park on Saturday. It was announced yesterday that county teams will be in action in three different […]

Minors open with decisive win

The county’s Minors began their Connacht Championship campaign with a Round 1 win over Leitrim at Ballinamore this evening. Leading by 0-8 to 0-4 at half-time, Tomás Morley’s charges pulled away after the break to win decisively by 1-20 to 0-6. Early points from Ethan Murphy (two), Aidan Cosgrove and Paddy Heneghan settled us well into this contest and gave […]
