Mayo were the victors against the Sligo Masters in the recently revived tournament for the Brian Ruddy Memorial Trophy played on the Rice College pitch on Saturday. In ideal conditions, both teams served up some entertaining football with Mayo running out comfortable winners at the final whistle. The match provided the perfect opportunity for the Mayo team to sharpen their skills in preparation for the replay of the All-Ireland Masters game against Cavan on December the 3rd, venue yet to be decided. Maria Madden (nee Ruddy) daughter of the late Brian Ruddy, presented the "Brian Ruddy Memorial Trophy" to winning Mayo captain Pat Mulchrone. Also in attendance at the tournament was Kitty King, sister to the late Brian Ruddy.
Grateful thanks to Rice College for making the football pitch available at very short notice. They should be justifiably proud of the stable condition of the surface given the recent heavy rain making most other football pitches in the area virtually unplayable.

Kilmeena came through a tough semi final played in islandeady today. This was an emphatic win for kilmeena and the winning margin could have been greater but for some poor finishing and some sloppy defensive work.
This was a victory built on hard work and collective pressure on the Achill men. Time and again this pressure yielded up a lot of possession for kilmeena.
A good solid first 20 mins saw Kilmeena in front with 2 - 3 on the score-board and the Islanders failing to register a score. Achill got a grip on the game towards the end of the half to send over 3 unanswered points
The second half saw Kilmeena storm ahead again with 3 points before Achill converted a penalty. However a fine Kilmeena move saw Paul Moran blast to the net to put Kilmeena in driving seat going into the last ten mins. Achill scored a consolation goal but Kilmeena had done enough to come away with a well deserved victory
This was a fine display in tough conditions the work rate was outstanding all over the pitch and every player played a critical part in this solid victory
