Connacht Táin league –
In the Connacht Tain league Carrick hurling looked like they could reach the semi final by beating Bellmullet last Friday night but unfortunately in the dying seconds of the game Belmullet were given a life line when they were awarded a dubious penalty.  The final score saw Carrick going down by a point on a scoreline of 0.11 to 1.09.  Cluainin Iomaint were waiting on this scoreline with bated breath and were more than happy with this result as a win in their game would have sealed the semi final spot for them on Scóring difference.  Unfortunately Western Gaels could not field a team last Saturday and at the time of going to print it looks like Western Gaels will be awarding Cluainin a walk over which means that Cluainin, Carrick and Belmullet will be level on points. If a walk over is given then Scóring difference will not come into play and a three way play off will determine who plays against Castlebar Mitchels in the semi final.  In the other group of the Tain league Ballinamore were unable to play Sylane.
