    The defending All-Ireland champions won by 2-10 to 1-9 against Ballintubber at MacHale Park.

  • The dates and venues have been confirmed for two of the quarter-finals in the 2020 Connacht GAA Senior Football Championship.

    London will host Roscommon in Ruislip on Saturday 2nd May 2020, while Galway are away to New York in Gaelic Park on Sunday 3rd May.

    The date for Mayo's first championship match against Leitrim has not yet been confirmed, but the game will be played in Páirc Séan Mac Diarmada in Carrick-on-Shannon.

    in the Connacht U20 Championship Mayo will meet Galway first in the Quarter Finals and the two sides will also meet in the opening round of the Minor Championship for 2020.

  • A decision on whether or not Dr Hyde Park can stage the Connacht Senior Football Final will be made after this Saturday’s Connacht Senior Semi Final between Roscommon and Leitrim.

    A decision on the matter was deferred at a meeting of the Connacht Council last night.

    If Roscommon best Leitrim and Galway overcome Sligo next week, the rota system in place currently would mean the Final would usually be slated in for Dr Hyde Park.

    However reports yesterday suggest that the Roscommon venue could be in danger of losing the game due to concerns over the venue, including safety. Hyde Park currently has capacity for 18,000 supporters.

    No decision will be taken on the matter until after Saturday’s game.
