This coming weekend sees the culmination of the group stages in this year's Senior, Intermediate and Junior club football Championships
Two rounds of matches have now been contested in this year's Senior, Intermediate and Junior club football Championships, with the group tables in all three competitions starting to take shape as the knockout stage starts to come into view.
Paddy Prendergast, who played at full-back on Mayo's All-Ireland winning teams of 1950 and 1951 died on Saturday at the age of 95. With his passing, the final link to the group of players who took part in the last two All-Ireland finals won by the county has now been severed
With inter-county football over for another year, the focus has now shifted to the club scene where last weekend the first round of matches took place in the Senior, Intermediate and Junior club championships.
It's now two weeks on from Mayo's latest, hugely disappointing All-Ireland final defeat. The debate about how and why the final was lost continues to rumble on, as the county comes to terms with the fact that yet another opportunity to land the Sam Maguire has once again slipped from its grasp
