TG4 Championship

All eyes this weekend will be on the South Sligo Village
of Tourlestrane as Sligo Entertain Champions Galway in
Round 3 of the TG4 Connacht Senior Championship on Saturday
at 7.30pm. It’s a game the home county have to win to
remain in the Championship, where as a draw or a win will
ensure both Galway and Mayo places in the Connacht Final
on July 1st.

For long periods against Mayo in the pervious round it
looked as if the Paddy Henry managed side were about to
cause an upset but inexperience finally caught up with
them losing out by 7 points to the former champions. Galway
was in no such danger as they recorded a victory against

Corrib Oil Under 18 Championship

The final game in the Corrib Oil Minor Championship will
be played on Friday evening 18th May with Mayo enjoying
home advantage against Sligo. This is a game Mayo simply
has to win to retain any faint hopes of reaching the Final,
which will go ahead on Tuesday next 22nd May at 7.30pm.
Were Mayo to record a 8 point victory they would then
qualify along with Galway for the decider, anything less
than this and it would be Roscommon who would be contesting
the decider along with Galway. This would set up a repeat
of their clash on Tuesday evening last when Roscommon
were ahead by 4 points with 5 minutes to go, only to be
caught by a late Galway rally to lose out by 3 – 14 to
2 – 13. of course were Sligo to draw or win their clash
with Mayo on Friday evening, then the Yeat’s County would
qualify for the decider along with Galway. No doubt all
eyes will be pointing in the Mayo venue direction on Friday

Under 14 Championship

Round 2 of the U – 14 Championship will go ahead this
week with Leitrim playing their first game in this years
Championship at home to Mayo on Thursday evening 17th
May. For Mayo they will be hoping to bounce back from
their opening day defeat at the hands of Galway. On Friday
evening 18th May, it’s of to Curry for the second game
in the Championship with Sligo at home to Galway at 7.30pm.
Both sides had mixed fortune on the opening day with Galway
enjoying victory to Mayo, while Sligo suffered defeat
away to Roscommon.
