There was strong Mayo involvement in round one of the Sigerson Cup, with three games taking place last night.

UL hammered IT Sligo, DCU beat Maynooth University, and Letterkenny IT defeated IT Carlow.

UL 4-15  Sligo 0-7

Westport’s Eoghan McLaughlin was among the goals as UL sent out a warning shot to the rest of the country, with Kerry’s David Clifford scoring 1-5 and Paul Walsh coming off the bench to rattle two goals.

Knockmore’s Connell Dempsey was straight back at it after Sunday’s Connacht club SFC final loss to Pádraig Pearses. He lined out at midfield for UL, and scored a point in the process. Bonniconlon’s Conor Igoe was a second half substitute.

Charlestown pair Jack Mahon and Paul Towey, Parke’s Ronan Reilly, Westport’s Luke Tunney and Ballyhaunis’ Jack Coyne were on the bench, but didn’t see game-time.

Ballinrobe’s Luke Jennings was between the sticks for Sligo.

DCU 2-17 Maynooth 1-9

There was no Mayo involvement in this fixture as DCU easily defeated Maynooth to progress.

Galway’s Robert Finnerty was to the fore for DCU as he tallied 1-3, while Seán Fitzgerald played at right-half back. Sligo’s Red Óg Murphy was excellent in midfield scoring a point, while Luke Towey was left-half back.

Letterkenny 1-13 Carlow 1-11

Bonniconlon’s Seán Neary started at full-forward for Letterkenny as they narrowly defeated Carlow in a tight battle.

Ballintubber’s Keelan McDonnell was Neary’s opponent as he lined out at left corner-back.


This evening, NUIG will face Ulster University at Whitehall Colmcille GAA in Dublin at 7pm.

Mayo senior vice-captain Tommy Conroy (The Neale), Westport’s Fionn McDonagh, and Castlebar Mitchel’s duo Gavin Durcan and Ultan O’Reilly are a part of NUIG’s squad.
