GAA headline of the year in Mayo newspaper

Sometimes, names just lend themselves to headlines.

Enda the line.


Jack in the box.

John 3:7 (John needs to score 3-7 though).

You can have some fun with the team names and place names too - or nicknames at a stretch - but rarely do you get an open goal like Tubbercurry.

Still, it requires skill. Patience. Timing. And execution.


In the Connacht Colleges Senior A League final, St. Abbracta's of Sligo saw off Rice College with four points to spare.

The Tubbercurry crowd won the game 2-8 to 1-7 and retained their provincial title but there were more gongs to be won on the day.


A headline can make or break a good local story and it's safe to say that The Mayo News nailed it.

Tubbercurry prove just too hot for Rice.


It's not easy to make something like that look so simple but that's the trick.
