Derry, Here We Come

celtic park derry

And we’re off again….. Derry, here we come! We’re off on our travels again, this time to Celtic Park in Derry at the other end of the Island.

Allianz Prediction League Week 2

winning losing

Well, that was a dour old affair in MacHale Park yesterday. 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. All in all really it was a day for blankets – we even spotted a few in the stand! After a strong opening weekend it smarts to concede points … Continue reading

Club ’51 Remembers

The rain in Bekan in 2014

Exactly one year ago today. A cold, wet, windy day in east Mayo. Mild excitement and high hopes for the year ahead. That morning was just like any normal match day: up early, a decent breakfast and on the road in good time. You’d never know what might happen. Breakfast came in roll form. Feck it, it was match day so we said we’d treat ourselves. 2 sausies, 2 rashers and bit of black and white. Plenty of butter. I … Continue reading

March 2015 – Monaghan are the surprise package of the National Football … Continue reading
