Minors clinch Connacht title in extra-time

Tonight’s Connacht MFC between Mayo and Galway was the first of four separate Championship meetings between the counties in a five-day span. If any of the other matches are anything as good as this rip-roaring encounter at Tuam Stadium then we’re all in for a treat. It was a contest that the Mayo youngsters won by the minimum margin, on […]

Minor team named

We named our team a bit earlier on for this evening’s Connacht Minor final against Galway, a match that throws in at Tuam Stadium at 7.30pm. The team we’ve named is unchanged from that which started in last week’s semi-final against Sligo. Here it is: Mayo (Connacht MFC final v Galway, 5/7/2019): Luke Jennings (Ballinrobe); Alfie Morrison (Louisburgh), Oisín Tunney […]

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 […]
