  • Four Roads          (Roscommon)   6-8 Castlebar Mitchels      (Mayo)     5-4

     

    Roscommon side Four Roads are on course to retain their Tain Og National U13 Division 1 title which they won last year, after they overcame a plucky Castlebar Mitchel’s challenge recently at the Connacht GAA Centre of Excellence in Bekan. Four Roads seemed to be coasting when they led by thirteen points at half time, but a valiant Castlebar comeback in the second half brought the deficit to just seven points on the final whistle.

    Playing against the strong breeze in the opening half, it was Castlebar who got off to the better start with a goal in the fourth minute by Christian McNamara. However, the remainder of the half was all Four Roads as the champions got to grips with the game. Roscommon scores from Luke Tully (1-3), Conor Morris (0-4) and Daniel Bolger (2-0) gave Four Roads a strong half time platform, as they made advantage of the space afforded in the 13-a-side formation. To their credit Castlebar battled hard but went in at the break on a 3-7 to 1-0 deficit.

    The Mitchels started the second half the brightest as Kevin Rowland pointed a free from long range. Castlebar goalkeeper John Heneghan made some blinding saves, but could do very little when Four Roads Conor Morris goaled from close range. Two further Four Roads goals from Rory Coyle and sub Adam Kenny stretched their lead further, but with ten minutes remaining Castlebar began their comeback. In a dramatic closing ten minutes of play, the Mayo side reeled off 4-1 without reply, as goals from Eoin Enright, Daniel Swift, Lucas Kenny and Gavin Forry caused some panic in the Four Roads camp.

    However time ran out on the Castlebar comeback, and in the end Four Roads were deserved of their place in the final, which will be held on Saturday 6th July in Breffni Park in Cavan against Keady of Armagh.

    Four Roads: Oisin Hynes; Sean Mannion, Gavin Meares; Jamie Kelly, Jack Tully, Roan Trundle; Conor Morris (1-4), Daniel Bolger (2-1); Rory Coyle (1-0), Oisin Finneran, Luke Tully (1-3); Ethan Kelly, Billy Glennon. Subs: Adam Kenny (1-0), Cathal Kennedy, Enda Killian, Eoghan Mulry, Hugh Coyle, Luke Finneran, David Kelly, Sean Scott.

    Castlebar: John Heneghan; Kevin Rowland (0-1), Oisin Mulroy; Eoin Enright (1-0), Conal Durcan, Colm Heneghan; Lucas Kenny (1-2), Sean O’Reilly; Aaron Quigley, Mark Fahy, Fionan O’Reilly; Dylan Quinn, Christian McNamara (1-0). Subs: Diarmuid Swift (1-0), Niall Monaghan (0-1) & Gavin Forry (1-0).

  • GAA clubs across the region are reminding their members to get registered by tonight’s deadline.

    In the GAA's Official Guide under rule 2.1 (g), membership must be paid by the 31 March in order for the member to retain voting rights or be a member of a committee.

    Clubs are currently unable to hold meetings or physically collect membership due to social distancing and travel restrictions in place.

    They are asking members to pay online if possible, or to send completed forms to the club.

    The GAA are unable to offer an extension to the deadline as it is in their official rulebook and can only be changed at Congress.

    Rule 2.1 states that: Only a Full Member who has paid his annual Club subscription by the due date set by the Executive Committee of the Club (which shall be prior to March 31st each year) shall be eligible to vote at, nominate for, or seek election to the Executive Committee at any following General Meeting of the Club held up to and including the due date for payment of the annual Club subscription in the following Membership Year.

  • GAA's director-general Tom Ryan is set to intervene directly in the ongoing row over Mayo GAA funding, and meet with US-based Tim O'Leary.

    The Irish Independent reports that Croke Park officials have already met with the Mayo executive and were briefed on the dispute.

    Tim O'Leary is head of the Mayo GAA International Supporters Club, which  has been withholding € 250,000, which was raised at a gala function in New York last year, due to concerns over governance issues.

    In a letter to the Mayo County Board dated this Monday November 25th, Tom Ryan offered whatever support and assistance may be required to Mayo GAA to reach a positive outcome.

    The director-general also said  they "would be glad" to meet Tim O'Leary and would "be grateful" for any assistance from the county board in making those arrangements.

     

     

     

     

  • Kildare and Mayo County Boards will each receive 1500 tickets for club distribution for Saturday’s All-Ireland Qualifier game between the sides in Newbridge.

    It follows the decision earlier to switch the game from Croke Park to Newbridge, after Kildare GAA said they would not play the game in Dublin, having been drawn out of the hat first on Monday morning.

    In a statement this afternoon the GAA confirmed the change and said that following discussions with the Kildare County Committee and An Garda Síochána in recent days, upgraded match-day and traffic management plans involving extra stewarding and Gardaí will be put in place to cater for the large crowds expected at the venue before the game.

    The GAA wishes to point out that the decision by the CCCC to fix the game for Croke Park originally was based on serious concerns around the health and safety of patrons attending the fixture. The CCCC has received assurances that these issues will be adequately addressed.

    The original capacity of 8,200 remains in place.

    Both county boards will receive 1500 tickets each for club distribution. The remainder will be used to meet the needs of players, season ticket holders and sponsors.

    The GAA has also confirmed that tickets purchased for the double header will not be valid for the refixture and a refund process from the point of purchase has been put in place.

    Supporters without tickets are urged not to come to St Conleth’s Park on Saturday.

    The GAA has also confirmed that the meeting of Cavan and Tyrone will now take place at Brewster Park, Enniskillen.

    Tickets for the games will be priced at 20 euro for adults and 5 euro for juveniles.

  • The GAA is warning that clubs or inter-county teams that continue to train during the suspension of GAA activity will not be insured, putting players at considerable risk.

    In a note to clubs over the weekend, the GAA has advised that its Injury Benefit Fund and public liability insurance will not be in operation between now and March 29th in respect of any playing or training activity undertaken by GAA clubs or members, or on club property.

     

     

  • The GAA will wait until Friday to make a decision on whether this weekend's League games will go ahead.

    There's a full round of fixtures slated for the Football League across Saturday and Sunday.

    While the final round of group games in the hurling league are set to be played on Sunday.

    If they're called off it could prove problematic, with no free weekends between now and the slated Division 1 Hurling Final date of March 24th. It could also prove problematic in Mayo's Division 2B Final, which is down for Sunday March 11th.
