  • Crossmolina Lahardane MacHale Rovers lost the All-Ireland Junior football decider to Donoughmore after extra-time.

    It finished AET C.L Rovers 1-11 1-12 Donoughmore.

    Heartbreak for the girls from north Mayo who lost out by the smallest of margins.

  • Details have been confirmed for Crossmolina Lahardane MacHale Rovers All-Ireland Junior semi-final on Sunday.

    The North Mayo ladies will face Edendork St. Malachy’s of Tyrone at 1pm in Pairc Arthur Mallon in Edendork.

    Rovers sealed their place in the last four of the All-Ireland series following their 6-08 to 1-10 win over Oisins in Manchester last Sunday week.

  • Two-time All-Ireland Senior Champions Donoughmore are looking to follow in the footsteps of Aghada in 2017 and Glanmire last year by bringing the Junior silverware back to Cork.

     

    This is the fifth successive year that a Cork club has contested the All-Ireland Junior Club Final.

     

    For Mayo Ladies Football, this is also a big day as it marks the first time since 2017, when Carnacon claimed Senior honours, that a team from the county has contested an All-Ireland Club decider.

     

    The CL MacHale Rovers team is graced by Rachel Kearns, who claimed a TG4 All Star award at the Citywest Hotel last Saturday night.

     

    No Mayo team has ever won the All-Ireland Junior Club Championship, although Knockmore did contest the 2008 Final.

     

    Speaking to Midwest Sport, Vincent Gallagher from the MacHale Rovers management team knows it will be a challenging game but says they don’t fear the Munster Champions one bit.

     

    Sunday’s game will be live on Midwest Radio Sport with Michael D. McAndrew and Sinead Stagg.
