  • Oliver Browne a native of The Neale, now living in the US  is to be honoured by a leading Irish community group in New Jersey on the night before Mayo play New York in Gaelic Park, New York.

    He was the goalkeeper on The Neale team that won the club’s only ever Mayo Minor Football Championship title in 1980, and has now been named as Clubman of the Year by The Friendly Sons of the Shillelagh Essex Chapter, based in West Orange, New Jersey.

    A large group of family and friends from Ireland and throughout America will attend the presentation dinner on Saturday, May 4th – Mayo Day – at the Mayfair Farms, West Orange.

    The citation from The Friendly Sons of the Shillelagh noted that Oliver “is a loyal member of the  order who has tirelessly contributed his time and energy as a member, committee head, trustee and officer. He has chaired the Exhibition of Irish Sports for many years, a family event that features boys and girls Gaelic football matches and men’s rugby and hurling games.

    Tickets and further information on the event are available at: www.shillelaghclub.com

    On the day before the dinner, Friday, May 3rd, Oliver will host a Mayo GAA Fans Gathering at the Shillelagh Club, New Jersey – just 30 minutes from the George Washington Bridge.

    A benefit raffle on the night will raise funds for the Friends of Darragh / Kevin Bell Repatriation Fund. Darragh Walsh was a Neale footballer who died tragically in a car accident in 2013 in Qatar aged 22.

  • The Neale await Ballyhaunis in the intermediate decider after they overcame Louisburgh in an extra-time thriller on Saturday.

    The South Mayo men have traversed their way up from the junior grade in recent seasons and now are on the cusp of making the senior grade for the first time in their history.

    Neale star Aidan O’Sullivan thinks the young team’s fitness shaded for them in this encounter.
