Galway 0-14 Shannon Blues 2-13 Shannon Blues put in a dominant second half performance to overturn a five point half-time deficit and end with a 5 point win.  The Blues won the lion’s share of second half possession and when Galway did manage to get into scoring range, the Blues defence smothered any opportunity of scoring.  A Darren Wallace second half goal spurred the Blues comeback, and

Sunday August 13 Shannon Blues v Galway 1:45 First up are Galway and the Shannon Blues.  Galway find themselves one game away from repeating last year’s final appearance.  The westerners field a balanced side and play a fluid style, moving the ball well when in possession.  There are plenty of finishers in the forward line.  Home based stalwart Kevin Cummins can be relied on to come up

Connemara Gaels 1-10 Galway 2-15 Galway burnished their championship credentials with an impressive win over the Connemara Gaels in the battle of the west.  It was neck and neck until the final quarter when Galway pulled away with some well taken scores and a Brian Reape goal that put the matter to bed.  Galway moved the ball well when they needed to – a hallmark of their game, while the

Galway 1-18 Christopher’s 3-11 Another senior football contest that went down to the wire, though Galway may feel that had they lost this game, they would have given it away.  At one point the Tribesmen led by 6 points coming into the final quarter and were sitting pretty.  Christopher’s kept with it and drew level with 2 minutes to go after a James Horgan goal, one that followed an Eddie

Aidan McAnespies 0-17 Galway 2-15 The senior football championship is well and truly underway.  Galway tallied their first 2 points of the season, while it was the first loss of the 2017 for McAnespies.  The game was tight all the way through, with no more than 2 points between the teams.  It was not until Kevin Cummins netted in injury time for Galway that there was any semblance of

Galway 2-14 Wolfe Tones 4-11 Goals win games as the saying goes, and it was the Wolfe Tones who scored 4 of them to kill Galway’s efforts at getting a win in their first outing of the season.  Two goals in each half kept the Wolfe Tones on top, and a commendable late rally by Galway was never going to be enough to bridge the gap between the teams. After 2 outings, Monaghan native, Shane

The final round of group games for the Pat O’Brien Cup saw Aidan McAnespies and Donegal make next Saturday’s final thanks to wins for each side.  The Macs just about survived a late Connemara Gaels surge to win their 3 games, while Donegal had a little easier time of things with a comfortable win over Christopher’s.  The final will be played on the main field, and from what we have seen in

Group B Donegal 3-13 Wolfe Tones 2-7 Donegal kept Group B open with a win over Wolfe Tones in their first outing of the season.  The northerners took a while to get going, and once they did, pulled away in the last quarter of the game. Mark Canny on the ball for Donegal. Lee Carr was the playmaker for Donegal in the forward line.  The diminutive wing forward created openings for his

The first round of Pat O’Brien cup games got the Boston Northeast 2017 season off to a great start at the Irish Cultural Center in Canton Mass.  Weather conditions were good, though perhaps a little on the warmer side than we are used to in late April, and a stiff wind blew up as the afternoon wore on.  Six football teams were in action, with each club almost having completed their home based

Galway 2-11 Wolfe Tones 3-16 Wolfe Tones made history winning their first senior football championship with a controlled, professional performance.  The Tones scored when they needed to score and slowed things down when things needed slowing.  All around the Tones did well, from corner back to corner forward, but for the second week in a row, it was Rathnew man, Leighton Glynn, whose imprint
