Last year’s beaten All Ireland finalists Galway looked in control at half time as 2 goals from Andrea Trill and points from Chloe Miskell (0-3), Molly Hynes and Niamh Coleman left the visitors 2-6 to 0-3 in front. A great goal from Maria Reilly and a strong start to the second half by Mayo cut the gap to 2-6 to 1-5 but Galway responded and were leading 3-9 to 1-7 inside the last 10 minutes before Mayo launched their incredible comeback. First up team captain Ciara Whyte rattled the net to cut the gap to 5 points before Amy O’Connor proved the hero of the hour with 2 late goals to send the home fans wild with delight and deny Galway at the death.

Electric Ireland Ryan Cup 20192 Groups of 3Full Fixtures to be confirmedTop 2 teams in each group qualify for semi-finals. Round 2 – February 13thGroups A & BTeam 1 v Team 4Team 3 v Team 2Group C & DTeam 2 v Team 3 Speaking on behalf of Cumann Lúthchleas Gael, Uachtaráin Seán Ó hÓráin said: “We are delighted that the playing and promotion of Gaelic games is such a respected tradition throughout third level education.“There is so much more than history behind the Sigerson and Fitzgibbon Cups and many other tiers of keenly contested competition. The Electric Ireland Higher Education GAA Championships are a proven pathway in the development of talented players and, year after year, these games continue to produce memorable moments and signpost players to watch for future years.”Speaking at the draws, Edel McCarthy, Group Sponsorship Manager at Electric Ireland, said: We are delighted to support the Electric Ireland Higher Education Leagues and Championships again in 2019 and look forward to another exciting and hugely competitive season ahead. It is easy to see why the Electric Ireland Higher Education trophies are amongst the most coveted in GAA with fierce rivalry at the heart of the competitions and the level of talent on display. This season, through our First Class Rivals campaign, we will highlight the unique trait of these competitions that sees team composition, unlike in club and county Championships, determined by place of learning rather than place of birth resulting in new found rivals amongst former teammates and unexpected alliances amongst club and county rivals.”Again, this year, all Sigerson fixtures will be played on campuses/local venuesas part of the sixth year of ahome-and-away agreement between all clubs. Any pairings which occurred over the last 5years will now revert to the other club’svenue. With improvements made to many of the GAA facilities in the Higher Education sector this will give clubs the opportunity to showcase their venues andwill continue to raisethe interest of the local student body in these fixtures.With fixtures in the Electric Ireland HE GAA Championships scheduled to start on Wednesday January 16th, 2019, full details of dates, times and venues will be circulated later this week.Fixtures, results and news updates will be available throughout the season on www.gaa.ie/higherducationFollow all the action on the ‘GAA Higher Education’ Facebook page and on Twitter @HigherEdGAA and the hashtags: #Sigerson #Fitzgibbon #hegaa#FirstClassRivals Football Freshers C2 Groups:2 Groups of 3 teams.Top teams in each group qualify for the finals.

Since I was little, I am someone who loves an adventure.”I have already talked about the championship in China with Axel Witsel but I also talked about the MLS to Laurent Ciman and if someone was playing in Bangladesh, I would also ask him for information.4 The Spurs star only has a year left on his contract and is wanted by clubs in Italy and ChinaCredit: Getty4 The midfielder is currently in Russia on World Cup duty with BelgiumCredit: Reuters“It will be time to study the options available to me, but I do not see myself playing in another club than Tottenham in England.”Dembele has also hinted he could retire from international football after this World Cup.He added: “This could be my last tournament. I have been playing for the national team for 13 years, since I was 18. But I don’t want to make a decision now, we’ll see after the tournament.“I have to listen to my body.
