Ballyglass vs Castlebar Celtic

There is no need to explain why Sunday, August 14 is a big day in the 2011season For both Ballyglass and Castlebar Celtic it is a local Derby and a big game for Both sides, and their respetive supporters.

According to the local turf accountants this is a tough one to call.With Castlebar celtic now in the National league they will want to prove that they are the best team in Ireland  some spectators see this as the ideal game for Ballyglass to bounce back from Defeat in the Joma cup to Celtic Both sides have had their share of “trash-talking” the pressure is on and the real business will be left to the pitch — here, we’ll see how this mouth-watering clash will shape-up.



The two rivals come into this game with 2-0 results from their last irish cup matches and the Castlebar Celtic Player — Emma Mullin is in great form herself, with 35 goals in the season. Ballyglass defence needs to be its toes to keep her quiet, which could be crucial in getting the right result. Cora Staunton one of Ballyglass big players has become an integral part of mayo Womens soccer league over the years, and her creativity and clever movement must be closely watched by whoever is entrusted to mark her.

Celtics no-nonsense Defender Rachel  King will need to be on top form if Ballyglass are to be kept at bay While at the other end yvonne Byrne has to to the same to keep Celtic out.

But this match will be won by the team that wants it more and has the passion to go out and put themselves to the test and go on to win the Intermediate cup on September 4th in Milebush Park.

AFTER the jubilation of getting into the Womens National league, Celtic staff and fans alike will be looking to keep the good times rolling against Ballyglass  in the Irish Intermediate Cup on Sunday at 2pm but Ballyglass will have other ideas.

Younger Women and Breast Cancer

Breast cancer in younger pre-menopausal woman is not common and most cases occur in women over the age of 50 years of age.
For example the risk for a woman between the ages of 30-34 years is 1 in 900, compared with the risk of a woman aged between 60 and 64 years which is 1 in 15. (National Cancer registry 2007) 
Perhaps because of this fact a diagnosis can be all the more unexpected for and emotional. Breast cancer at a young age can lead to feelings of shock, isolation and anxiety.
It may help to know you are not alone and by calling the cancer information helpline on 1800 200 700 you can be put in touch with a younger volunteer like yourself who has personal experience of breast cancer.
We have also developed a special booklet for younger women which deals with particular issues which may affect a pre-menopausal woman. You can either call on the helpline number above for a free copy or download from here.

match report St Francis 3 - 4 Mayo

Mayo have made a successful start to their season with their last win coming over St.Francis  of Dublin the reining Irish cup champions on May 2nd. Mayo showed great heart after going down 1-0 after 32 seconds in John Hyde park  Dublin from a Sandra Mulhall lob over the keeper  and had to wait until the 34th minute to get back on level terms when Aoife Herbert was fouled inside the area Emma Mullin got the first of her four goals from the penalty spot  and as the clock ticked down to half time a long kick out from mayo keeper Katrina  Connolly bounced into the path of Emma and mayo were 2-1 up going in at half time.

Mayo started the brighter in the second half but the chance of going level fell to Shaorn  Cullen of St.francis  when she linked up with Mary Waldron only to be denied by Connolly in the mayo goal and with 10 minutes gone in the second half Karen Nic lassan found herself in the mayo box after a great ball through from Shauna Cooke  but a brave save from Connolly kept mayo ahead .

After this mayo took full control at mid- field with Cora Staunton and Maz Sweeney breaking up every attack that the Dublin side put together and with both wingers Jackie mulligan and Aileen Gilroy working tirelessly up and down the flanks mayo were in full control another long ball from Connolly was flicked on to the path of Mullin by Cora Staunton Emma lobed the ball over Aine Genockey  into the net and st. Francis were paying for their missed chances .

At this point the darting runs of the mayo striker Aoife Herbert was beginning to frustrate both loise Corrigan and Emily hanney  of st francis they found it very hard to keep track of her but irish international Megan Campbell was standing firm in the fancies defence her long throws and  clearances was keeping St. Francis in the game.

St.francis were thrown a life line in the 62nd minute when Shauna Cookes volley hit the roof of the Mayo net after a great one-two with Sonya Hughes  and Mayo must have felt the roof was about to fall on their Irish cup when Rachel king was sent off after a second yellow card on 65 minutes  the mayo bench quickly rearranged the team taking off Jackie mulligan introducing Katie walsh to partner Yvonne  Byrne in the center of defence and moving Aoife Herbert to the left side of mid-field  this move gave more freedom to irish international Aileen Gilroy to run with the ball and it was from one of these  runs and cross that Emma Mullen gathered the ball, rounded the keeper and finished in style on 74minutes.

Leading 4-2 Mayo decided to shut up shop after this and hold on to their two goal advantage  it was at this point Carol Hegarty Mayos right back playing in her very first game  for mayo and Avril kilkelly continued to shine encouraged by the experienced players like Byrne, Walsh, Sweeney and Connolly  Mayo were holding out. Staunton in the center  of the park was letting Francis away with nothing, challenging for everything even with eight minutes into injury time .

With 98 minutes on the clock Francis introduced their first sub Saidhbh Collins who slipped in behind the Mayo defence from a free kick and scored with her very first touch,but it was not enough against the well organised Mayo team under manager Michael Jennings  who had a plan to win and stuck to it. Mayo  held on to the ball after the kick-off and soon the ref called the end and mayo were in the quarter- final.

Match Report Dundalk 0 - 4 Mayo

Irish Senior Women’s Cup

Dundalk 0 – 4 Mayo

Mayo may not be participating in this year’s All-Ireland ladies Gaelic football but their soccer counterparts are blazing a trail in pitches around the country.

After their win over St.Francis the reigning Irish cup champions on May second in Dublin they took to the road again last Sunday to league of Ireland club Dundalk fc in oriel park in Dundalk.

Mayo showed no signs of the long journey and started best and had the ball in the Dundalk net within three minutes when Emma Mullin finished off some good passing move involving  maz Sweeney,cora Staunton and the ever alert Aoife Herbert.

The mayo crowd had barely time to draw breath when after nine minutes Emma popped up to finish another great move that again involved Aoife Herbert this time combining with Aileen Gilroy and Jackie mulligan. Mayo now leading by two the game looked to be going mayo’s way but Dundalk stepped up the pressure in midfield and were beginning to win more and more possession with the very physical Rachel reorder making her presents felt while Cora Staunton battled hard with Emma singleton.

It was at this time that Dundalk enjoyed their best spell from the 12th to the 25th minute but the introduction of Martha carter as a sub soon had the mayo side back on top , this gave more freedom to Cora to run at the Dundalk defence and this she did with propose hitting the crossbar on the half hour mark with ashling dyer helpless in the Dundalk net.

Dundalk were been forced to try shots from their own half which were all ways dealt with by Katrina Connolly in the mayo goal Yvonne Byrne was having her usually solid game supported by carol Hegarty, Avril Kilkelly and Katie Walsh who had come on as a sub in the st.francis game and had keep her place in the mayo team.

Mayo had three more chances before the break but shots from Emma Mullin, Aoife Herbert and Cora Staunton went narrowly wide, so mayo went in two goals to the good at half time.

Dundalk appeared a full seven minutes late for the start of the second half but when they did the were full of fire mayo weathered the storm and when Aoife Herbert crossed for Emma on the fifteen minute she looked sure to score but a push on the back by Niamh Mc Carty took her down and the referee pointed to the spot and Emma converted her own penalty and for the second time in a row she had completed her hat trick in a Irish cup match.

Mayo freshen up the team with the introduction of Niamh Barrett with 60 minutes on the clock she had an immediately impact closing down players and setting up the play for mayo but the move of the game came from inside the mayo half from the right wing  where carol Hegarty  passed to Aileen Gilroy to Cora in the middle of the park to Martha to Emma all done with one touch football  but a heavy tackle on Emma just outside the area meant the Emma had to be replaced because of a bruised foot by Annie lynskey with 15 minutes to go and it was that player that started the move that lead to mayo’s fourth goal with the mayo crowd on their feet roaring they on Niamh Barrett, Cora Staunton ,Annie lynskey and Aoife Herbert con verged on the Dundalk goal and anyone of them could have scored but Aoife took it on and hit the ball high into the right had corner of the net it was no more that this team deserved .

They now await the semi-final opponrtants on June 27th.

Mayo played in Europe in 2007 representing Ireland later that year they were knocked out in the 1/4 final of the irish cup by liford from clare by a score line of 2 - 1.

In 2008 Mayo faced Roscommon in Manulla F.C on july 23rd in the Irish Cup they won 6-0 and played the dublin league on august 10th they won 3 - 1 But lost to peamount on sep.7th by 2-0 so the exited the irish cup for another year.

2009 mayo lost their first game in the irish cup to raheny and so exited the cup on may 3rd in dublin.

2010 mayo took on the reigning irish cup champions St.fancis in dublin in the irish cup and came away with a 3 - 4 win next cup game saw mayo make the long trip up to Dundalk for the 1/4 final and again came away with the win (0-4) in the semi-final mayo hosted peamount of dublin but lost on a scoreline of 3-0 peamount went on to win the irish cup that year.

In recent times emphasis has been put on improving the standard of the underage game. Due to these developments mayo once again boast players on the International scene. Also due to these developments we can now see some of the talent that has been fashioned coming through to the senior levels.

Women's Football

Women's football is officially the fastest growing sport worldwide — and it's also the most exciting game at that! According to Sepp Blatter, the President of FIFA, football's world governing body: "The future of football is feminine." And he's probably right! There is presently an estimated 40 million girls and women now playing. By 2010, FIFA estimate that there will be as many women playing football around the world as men (100million).

The standard and attractiveness of the women's football is also improving markedly. An estimated 1 billion television viewers from 70 different countries watched the last FIFA Womens World Cup held in the USA in 1999. Over 650,000 people also attended the live games, and at the final, a record attendance of over 90,000 watched the USA beat China on penalties.

In Ireland, women's and girl's soccer is growing and the numbers have almost doubled in the past three years!  There are over 350 clubs across Ireland playing football every week throughout their season — whether it's a summer or winter one.  Whether you currently are a player or want to play competitive or just recreational football, it's a great way to keep fit and healthy, have fun and meet friends!
