Knockmore are the champions

At the start of the summer you’d have got decent odds on Knockmore lifting the Moclair Cup this year. Indeed, as late as the quarter-final stage they were only one of six clubs with serious ambitions to lift the title. Tonight, however, they stand alone – they’re county champions for the first time since 1997, with this afternoon’s two-point victory […]

With the sun having set, it was the hum of the generator powering the floodlights that provided the backdrop to tonight’s Intermediate Championship final at MacHale Park.

Kilmaine just do it

The Junior football Championship final ended a short while ago and it’s Kilmaine who are the champions. They only just edged out a heroic young Kilmeena side, capturing the Pete McDonnell Cup on a scoreline of 1-13 to 1-12. This was a real high quality decider played in perfect conditions in a sunwashed MacHale Park. The vantage point provided by […]

There was more LGFA Championship action on today so here’s a quick round-up on the three matches played.

Ballyhaunis topple Tooreen, Carnacon win again

Hunger is a great sauce or so they say. By the sounds of it, Ballyhaunis were the hungrier and more driven side in this afternoon’s county Senior hurling decider which was played at Adrian Freeman Memorial Park in Tooreen. The four-in-a-row chasing hosts may have been the strong favourites coming into this game but their neighbours were up for the […]
