But not good enough for MOTM according to John Maughan  🙄
Very blinkered, gave it to Ger McDonagh.

Heard that last night , typical enough of Maughan . Was it mid West he was calling that for ? Hands down Diarmuid was motm . Will the replay be next sat . Does Padraig o Connor not start games at all these days ? Think if tubber can get an improved game out of Cillian the next day it might not just be a matter of the favs winning the replay like a lot were saying down the town last night .
Not a sheep stole in Castlebar since 1986.

Lack of underage talent - operating at C levels at a lot of levels, means they MIGHT be a while out of senior ranks.

I saw that alright where they beat us in an under 15(?) C final recently but it was our second team against their first team. Presumably it's a numbers thing i.e. not enough jobs / young families in the area

Crossmolina had a one in a generation team 20 years ago! A group of lads that won every thing all the way up at underage and proceeded to do the same at senior. Immigration is the death of the rural Ireland. It either takes away the finished product from the club or the new family that will be the heart beat of the next generation.

They had a strong team that were challenging for Senior County titles back in the mid-late 1980's too.

There was a time you could say these things were swings and roundabouts, and they'd bounce back at some stage. Not sure you could say that now, I really do hope they bounce back.

the loss of board na moan and ESB on Corrick have been a massive blow and have not been replaced in any way,
even from a coaching/ structure  point of view many of the driving forces behind the club  were often outsider working there . Wasn't it that that brought Ciaran Mcdonalds dad down from Donegal
italso provided plenty of outlet for yong people to stay and work and the town thrived . the building boom hid it for a while but chickens are coming home to roost and now  its a Ghost town esp mid week  and the Team have done Brilliantly to stay senior as long as they Did .
Far from a unique story but still very sad

Cross had 3 adult football teams what seems like not that long ago. Is it 2 teams now?

Yeah, they won the Junior Championship with their 'B' Team in 2006.

They nearly always did if you include Keenagh

Castlebar out. A rested Breaffy won't get many better chances to win a county title than next weekend.

Poor Donie Vaughan's wait for a Senior championship medal continues.

His game in Newbridge was one of the best I've ever seen from a Mayo player.

They were arguably the best at senior, intermediate and junior back then. They beat Killala in a junior final but Killala went all the way to an AI final iirc? Cross. could not represent the county at Junior. Killala were a serious Junior team, so for Crossmolina to win that was some achievement.

Crossmolina have launched their own rugby club now as well which will hardly help?

There were two teams really that were a couple of years apart. The Jimmy Nallen, Ciaran McDonald, Damien Mulligan, Liam Moffatt era were followed by the likes of Peadar G, Rochy, Colm Reilly, M Moyles, Enda Lavelle, Gabriel Walsh.
