IN the sun­shine of Castle­bar on Sun­day af­ter­noon our Con­nacht dreams came to an abrupt end And the out­come in MacHale park was not the re­sult that we wanted and had worked so hard for, but there can be but one win­ner and to­day that team was Castle­bar Mitchels.

In foot­ball some­times you lose and there is noth­ing to do but ad­mit it. It’s all part of the game.

At the half time whis­tle it looked like we could have had the game as eas­ily as not with both teams level at 7 points each but Tourlestrane should have cap­i­talised on hav­ing won the toss and play­ing with the breeze in the first half but af­ter re­turn­ing to the field Tourlestrane looked busy for the open­ing few min­utes of the sec­ond half, it was then the stronger more ex­pe­ri­enced Castle­bar Mitchels pulled away and took some fine scores leav­ing our lads with too much to do and at the fi­nal whis­tle the hope of the Con­nacht fi­nal was over for this year for us. We wish Castle­bar Mitchels the best of luck in their fi­nal v Co­rofin.

That does not take away from a great year for Eamonn Gerry Michael and a mighty group of lads who have won the two in a row and have given the sup­port­ers many an ex­cit­ing day out all sea­son!
