  • A student from Balla has been named on head coach William O’Connor’s 18-strong panel for this season’s Centenary Shield crusade.

    Luke McNicholas from Balla Secondary School, Liam Kerrigan from St Attracta’s Community school in Tubbercurry and Adam Rooney from Yeats College, Galway are named on the panel.

    The 2018 series will see the Republic of Ireland with two consecutive away fixtures as the Boys in Green commence battle, taking on the Welsh Dragons in a fortnight’s time, while a month later, they will visit Luton Town to take on their hosts England in what should prove to be one of their toughest tests I the 4-match programme.

    The Republic of Ireland will meet Northern Ireland at the end of March, with a final game against Scotland in April.

  • Former Chelsea & Republic of Ireland International Damien Duff travels to Castlebar with his talented U15 Shamrock Rovers side who sit nicely at the top of SSE Airtricity group 2 on Saturday July 28th.

    They are undefeated this season with 11 games played, 45 goals scored and only 4 conceded. With no less then 6 Irish internationals in their squad including the highly rated Sami Clarke they are a fantastic team to watch.

    Mayo SL may have been defeated in their trip to Dublin but look to change things around this time and give Rovers a tough game.

    With Solar 21 Parks pitch looking in fine condition Shamrock Rovers are looking forward to travelling down to play on such a pristine surface. The game on Saturday week kicks off at 2pm.

  • The 2019 Fota Island Resort FAI Gaynor Tournament was launched in Limerick today, with each team finding out who they would play.

    The make-up of the groups for the tournament was decided in a draw which took place in Limerick City and County Council offices. 

    Chairperson of the FAI Women's Football Committee Niamh O’Donoghue oversaw the draw which was conducted by FAI Vice-President Noel Fitzroy, Mick Hanley and Fergal Harte from tournament lead sponsor, Fota Island Resort.

    The event also saw the official launch of this year’s tournament, which will take place over two weekends in June in the University of Limerick.

    Under-13 teams will take to the pitches on the weekend of June 1, 2 and 3, while the Under-15s will play from June 27 to June 30 for their respective ages’ Cups.

    The two weekends will also see U13 and U15 clubs compete for the tournament’s Trophies.

    Speaking at the launch, Niamh O’Donoghue talked of the importance of the role of the tournament in the development of female football players.

    She said: “I am very proud to be involved in the official launch and draw for the 2019 Fota Island Resort FAI Gaynor Tournament. It is a tournament with a proud tradition and we are all very much looking forward to this year’s competition at the University of Limerick – which is a fantastic venue – in June.

    “The tournament has been on the go now, in one form or another, for 20 years. And in that time, it has gone from strength to strength. I would like to thank Fota Island Resort for their continued support for the competition, which enables us to develop the tournament even further each year.”

    Fergal Harte, from the Fota Collection reiterated the Fota Island Resort’s keen support for the tournament.

    He said: “We’re absolutely delighted to sponsor the Gaynor Tournament again this year. It’s a pleasure for us to be back involved in the tournament for our third year running. During that time, we’ve had the privilege of witnessing the progression and growth not only of the tournament, but of Irish women’s football in general.

    “We jumped at the opportunity to first associate ourselves with a prestigious competition that we see as being integral to the development of women’s football in Ireland and we’ve never had cause to regret that decision since. We’re proud to have been welcomed into the football family and to be part of the grassroots of women’s football.”

  • Mayo U14s were in action at same time as the U16s Sunday morning. Management utilised the entire squad in this game to ensure all girls got good game time.As has been the case all week this was another tight game with little separating the girls and Galway. Mayo fell behind and couldn't retrieve it so finished in 8th position. 

    The 16s had their match on one of the Astroturf pitches against MGL. Management here also utilised the full squad bearing in mind that injuries at this stage had reduced us to 18 fit players.

    The opening exchanges were even and the first real chance was from a MGL corner when the ball was just headed over. On 14 minutes Maria Cannon intercepted a Dublin attack and quickly  counter attacked and fired a super diagonal shot just inches wide of the far corner. The game was end to end by now and both Roisin Kelly and Leah Conway gave excellent covering defending on 2 occasions.

    The 2nd half was only started when Mayo keeper Emma Mc Nutty had to be really brave in diving at the incoming forward to make a top save and getting a boot in the nose for her heroics. Mayo continued to threaten and Ava Keane was unlucky on 27 minutes. The Dublin side went ahead 4 mins from time and things looked bleak. The girls kept plugging away knowing that there was a considerable amount of time lost to a Dublin injury.Deep into added time a brilliantly floated Annie Gough free kick was headed into the top of the net by Kate O Dowd. Cue manic celebrations and there was still time for another chance for Mayo and an unbelievable Hana Ueno clearance off our line.

    Full time and 1-1 

    After the initial 5 penalties the 2 sides were still tied 4 -4. MGL eventually won 6 -5 on penalties.

    Thus Mayo finished 4th overall and while this squad has finished in the top 4 in Ireland in 2 of the past 3 years this year feels like under achievement by both players and staff.
