CL MacHale Rovers

  • Crossmolina Lahardane MacHale Rovers are Connacht Junior Champions.

    They defeated Claregalway this afternoon by 4-08 to 0-11.

    The North Mayo girls now march on to an All-Ireland semi-final against Oisin ladies of Manchester on Sunday the 27th of October.

  • Crossmolina Lahardane Mac Hale Rovers are through to the Connacht Junior Final after a four point defeat of Leitrim champions Aughawillan.

    They led by a point at the break 1-7 to 1-8 and asserted their dominance in the second to march on to the provincial final.

    They await the winners of Castlerea St Kevin’s and Claregalway in the other semi-final.

  • Two-time All-Ireland Senior Champions Donoughmore are looking to follow in the footsteps of Aghada in 2017 and Glanmire last year by bringing the Junior silverware back to Cork.

     

    This is the fifth successive year that a Cork club has contested the All-Ireland Junior Club Final.

     

    For Mayo Ladies Football, this is also a big day as it marks the first time since 2017, when Carnacon claimed Senior honours, that a team from the county has contested an All-Ireland Club decider.

     

    The CL MacHale Rovers team is graced by Rachel Kearns, who claimed a TG4 All Star award at the Citywest Hotel last Saturday night.

     

    No Mayo team has ever won the All-Ireland Junior Club Championship, although Knockmore did contest the 2008 Final.

     

    Speaking to Midwest Sport, Vincent Gallagher from the MacHale Rovers management team knows it will be a challenging game but says they don’t fear the Munster Champions one bit.

     

    Sunday’s game will be live on Midwest Radio Sport with Michael D. McAndrew and Sinead Stagg.
