  • Adrian Marren has announced his retirement after 16 years with Sligo.

    Marren, a stalwart of the forward line for the Yeats County since making his debut in 2004, has opted not to return this winter.

    Sligo are due to play Galway in a Connacht semi-final on 7 November in Pearse Stadium.

    The veteran free-taker helped his county to a Connacht title in 2007 and was one of the longest serving players at inter-county level.

  • The Galway county board have expressed their sympathy with Sligo, after the Yeats county were forced to give a walkover in this Saturday's Connacht semi-final.

    A Covid-19 outbreak in the Sligo panel has seen them unable to field a team, due to significant numbers being deemed close contacts.

    Sligo's county board say the players and management are "extremely upset" by the events, while Galway have said it is "disappointing for everybody concerned".

    John Prenty - CEO of Connacht GAA - says a rearranged fixture just wasn't possible.

  • The deadline for the vacant Sligo Senior Football job is tomorrow evening.

    Paul Taylor stepped down from his role as senior boss after two years last week.

    Expressions of interest need to be in with Sligo County Committee (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) this Friday November 20th at 5pm.’

  • Former Sligo footballer Dessie Sloyane will manage the Sligo under 20 football team for the 2020 season.

    His appointment was formally ratified last night, although the Easkey man has already begun work with the under 20 panel.

    Sloyane led Easkey footballers to an All-Ireland club junior football final last season – and previously worked as a senior selector with former Sligo manager Kevin Walsh.

    Joining Sloyane on his under 20 management team are former Sligo footballers Con O’Meara, Michael McNamara and Charlie Harrison.

    Former Mayo number one Fintan Ruddy is also part of the set-up as goalkeeping coach.

    The 2020 under 20 football championship will begin in February with Sligo due to play Roscommon in a Connacht semi-final.

    As part of the changes to the GAA’s Master Fixture List for 2020, the All-Ireland under 20 football semi-finals will replace the club finals as a Croke Park double-bill on St Patrick’s Day.

  • The first of the Connacht Junior Football Championship Semi-Finals take place this evening in Tuam.

    Galway & Sligo face off at 7pm.

    At the same time tomorrow evening in Carrick-on-Shannon Leitrim host Mayo.

    The Connacht Junior Final will then serve as a curtain raiser to the senior championship clash of Galway & Mayo on Sunday.

  • The GAA's director of player, club and games administration Feargal McGill says that the integrity of the 2020 All-Ireland championship has not been damaged by Sligo's concession to Galway in the Connacht SFC.

    A late night meeting on Tuesday resulted in Sligo's exit from this year's football championship as they withdrew from their scheduled match due to an outbreak of coronavirus within the panel.

    This has led to the suggestion from some quarters that the championship has now been undermined but it's an assertion that McGill disagrees with.

  • It's finished all square in the Galway senior football final.

    Tuam Stars had looked on for a big shock but Gary Sice scored a last minute equaliser for All-Ireland champions Corofin to leave it all square.

    Tuam Stars 2-9 Corofin 0-15 was the final score and that decider will now go to a replay.

    Tourlestrane claimed their fourth successive Sligo Senior title today following a 2-17 to 0-09 win over Coolera/Strandhill.

  • It’s down to the last four in the Sligo U21 A Football Championship on Saturday.

    Both games will take place in the Sligo GAA Centre of Excellence.

    First up at 7pm St. Mary’s clash with Easkey/Enniscrone/Kilglass.

    Then at 8.15pm Coolera/Strandhill will take on Shamrock Gaels.

  • Mark Breheny has been added to Tony McEntee’s Sligo management team as a selector.

    The former Sligo star retired from inter-county football two years ago after 17 seasons but still plays club football for St. Mary’s.

    Tourlestrane duo Brendan Egan and Alan Dunne have both been added to the backroom team as well.

    McEntee was appointed as Sligo manager last week on a three-year term – and he has retained the services of Crossmolina coach Joe Keane and Sean Boyle (strength & conditioning), who were both part of Paul Taylor’s management team during his two years in charge.
