Sligo GAA

  • Sligo captured the Division 3B Allianz Hurling league title this afternoon after a 3-17 to 2-16 win over Leitrim at the Connacht Centre of Excellence.

  • Sligo GAA regret that it will not be possible for their senior hurlers to fulfill the Christy Ring Cup fixture against Derry tomorrow.

    A member of the Sligo Hurling panel returned a positive Covid-19 test on Wednesday October 21st.

    The player tested was part of the squad that took part in the Roinn 3B final win on Sunday October 18. As such a number of close contacts are now in isolation and the complete squad are now undertaking tests for the virus and are following HSE and GAA guidelines.

    Sligo GAA County Board officers have liaised with GAA officials in Croke Park since this issue arose. Both Derry and Leitrim have been informed of this case.

    Sligo say they hope to participate in the second round of the Christy Ring Cup on the weekend of 7th/ 8th November, when the players who are restricting their movements will hopefully be available. They are currently availing of the GAA’s rapid testing facility.

    We also wish to emphasise that the County Board, team management, players and backroom staff have followed HSE and GAA guidelines in relation to Covid-19 at all times.

  • Sligo football manager Cathal Corey is awaiting an update on the fitness of forward Stephen Coen, with fears he may have suffered a serious knee ligament injury.

    Coen suffered the blow while playing a league game for his club St Mary’s last week and the 29-year old underwent a scan at the weekend.

    Cathal Corey says it’s doubtful Stephen will be back for Sligo’s clash with Galway in the Connacht semi-final on Sunday week, but he’s not giving up hope just yet.

    He said they’re still waiting on results.
