Galway’s footballers got back on track and stayed in the race for a League Final spot with a 1-11 to 0-12 win in MacHale Park against Mayo. Galway had a fine first half and with the help of Danny Cummins second Goal in as many weeks led 1-7 to 0-3 at the break. However Mayo thundered back and trailed by just a point after the third quarter before some deadly Shane Walsh frees stretched Galway’s advantage and saw them home. They now host Roscommon in Round 6 on Sunday week. The Galway hurlers home tie with Waterford fell victim to the weather and was postponed. The rescheduled game will take place next weekend.
Sligo were relegated on Sunday after a comprehensive 1-10 to 3-12 home defeat to Westmeath. It has been a very disappointing campaign so far for the Yeats County, who will look for a good performance in Longford on Saturday week to give them something to build on as they look towards the Championship. It’s a different story for their hurlers however who smashed Longford 3-16 to 0-3 to secure promotion from Division 3B, and a league final next weekend against the same opposition at the Connacht GAA Centre.
Sunday was a brilliant day for Leitrim football as Terry Hyland’s men secured Promotion to Division 3 with 2 games to spare with a solid 1-9 to 0-7 win over London in AvantCard Páirc Seán MacDiarmada, They now also have a League Final in Croke Park against Derry to look forward to, but will head to Derry first in two weeks for Round 6.
A disappointing weekend all round for the Mayo Footballers and Hurlers as both fell to defeats. The footballers only really played in the third quarter in their home defeat against Galway, and will need a hugely improved performance in Tralee on Saturday week to have any hope of reaching the league Final after such a promising start with 3 straight wins. The hurlers lost heavily 2-12 to 0-6 in Westmeath in their final league game in Mullingar and travel next weekend to Ruislip for a relegation Play Off.
Roscommon put up a spirited performance against Dublin in Hyde Park on Sunday with Cathal Creggs first half goal seeing the teams go in level at half time. Indeed the Rossies led by 2 in the opening minutes of the second half before a scrapy Dean Rock woke Dublin and they kicked on to victory. Roscommon head to Galway in the next Round needing a win as they look to be in a relegation scrap now with Cavan and Monaghan who meet in Round 6. Roscommon hurlers fell to a 2-12 to 1-6 defeat against Lancashire in Abbotstown. It was their first defeat of the season and the will play Armagh in Páirc Tailteann next weekend in the Division 3A League Final.
