Castlebar – Ballaghadreen Match Prediction | 06-10-2019 10:00

Boland is the only man making his Championship debut, with the Aghamore man being handed the number 10 jersey. For the Mayo men, manager Stephen Rochford keeps the faith with ten of the players who started last years replayed All Ireland Final with David Clarke, Chris Barrett, Ger Cafferky, Fergal Boland and Conor OShea coming into the team. Sligo have named an unchanged team from their game against New York two weeks ago which they won 1-21 to 1-13, with veterans Mark Breheny and Adrian Marren again spearheading the attack. The game will be preceded by the meeting of the same two counties at U17 level, which will throw in at 11.45.

Sen Hurson from Tyrone will referee Sundays match. Its the first time the counties have met in the Connacht Championship since the 2015 Connacht Final, when Mayo ran out comprehensive 6-26 to 2-11 winners. The incentive for the winners will be a Connacht semi final against Galway in Pearse stadium on the 11th of June. Sligos last victory over Mayo came in 2010 when they came from behind to beat Mayo, inspired by Charlie Harrison. Mayo and Sligo face off on Sunday in the Quarter Final of the Connacht Senior Football Championship on Sunday in Elverys MacHale Park, Castlebar at 2pm.

Well, that was a dour old affair in MacHale Park yesterday. All in all really it was a day for blankets we even spotted a few in the stand! As the blanket of freezing fog enveloping Castlebar started to lift, Tyrone brought a blanket of their own with them down the N5 and proceeded to smother the life out of the game in what was a frustrating day out.

They played Tipperary in the first round of the qualifiers at this venue where they won 1-13 to 1-10. In defence, they are very stable, they have players like Brendan McArdle, Darren OHagan and Kevin McKernan. Pat Havern who scored 0-03 against Tipperary is also a good footballer, while Donal OHare and Jerome Johnston will also be looking to come up with the scores. Down pushed Armagh all the way in Ulster only losing out by a point 2-17 to 3-13, things could have been a lot different if they won that game. That incidentally was their first qualifier win in 5 years. Firstly looking at Down. Paddy Tally is a very good manager he knows what it takes to win and he will try everything to win this game for the Mourne County.

Castlebar Rugby Club

A Massive thanks to the volunteers who made this possible and to the clubs involved from all around Mayo on the day! We had a fantastic morning for our first ever Mini's rugby blitz on the mall! We hope all the boys and girls who took part enjoyed themselves and here's to many more rugby occasions on the mall in the future!

But why Johnny Walker is so good? Also, Walker is good on the ground ha... Johnny is on a 9-fight winning streak and in last 3 fights, he won a Performance of the Night. After the win, Johnny Walker injured his shoulder by doing the worm celebration. But now he received doctors clearance to fight so he is back. It is really insane. Johnny Walker is the new name which UFC fans should remember. Walker now is really on fire and the hype is real. Also, his last two fights lasted only 51 seconds!

If around later, DJ Scobes will on the tunes Best of luck to Ballagh FC tomorrow in their big FAI Cup game against Manorhamilton Rangers, Manor were beaten by only 1-0 to last year's outright winners St Michael's a year ago so a tough task lies ahead but the Ballagh lads are going well so it's well worth a look.
