    Last years final was 0-0. Abbey Utd won on penalties (not sure of exact score but it was in sudden death)

    Spot-Kick- TOP MAN ! Thank you very much in deed. That is very much appreciated. 30/31 had Athlone Hibs 5-1 Galway Town, 51/52 had Galway Bhs beating Killybegs score unknown, 68/69 though I had Sligo Collegians, could have had year wrong. But around 68 was the foot in mouth in Britain, did it effect sport in Ireland as it did 5 years back as some leagues not completed in the north. The missing years in 30's could be 1. Fledgling Cup struggling to establish, 2. Possible as cup played on a regional basis could have been spread over 2 seasons. Did drop T. Kelly e-mail but no reply. OK would you be willing to sell Programme and what cost ? Know of all winners bar Gillooley Rangers do you know location ?

    You can have the Programme - no cost. If anyone has information on Connaught competitions, T.K might, or alternatively Noel Kennedy in Sligo. Tom normally did a programme when Mayo teams were involved.

    Spot-Kick, thats very kind of you. Before I switch e-mail where you based, as I pass through Ireland on a regular basis in summer, depending on your location, least I can do is buy you a pint or 2, for your help. Though reading between the lines you may be Mayo based, which may be a snag. Cheers

    I am Mayo based. If you can think of a solution, I will make arrangements to send them on to you or leave them in a place for you.

    Manulla ? Check out if my e-mail comes up on members scroll. If not take A chance and Ill post it here.
    If correct with location, 2 Conn final defeats 03/04 Ballinasloe1-2, 87/88 1-2 v Sligo Corinthians. Any others ? If at 03/04 final what was attendance like ?
    Seen your web-site tidy wee stand ! No other Mayo club got accomodation for fans ? Took a gander at Westport's Sportsground few years back. Howwould you describe it - Open air concrete terrace banking between road level and pitch lvel.

    I am not familiar with how to find Members Scroll - I am not a million miles away from Manulla if you want me to leave them there. Manulla are a good local Junior club catering for a lot of underage players also - they have two pitches, a small stand, and are currently extending their dressing rooms. Westport are still based at the Sports Park, and they have not really improved on their facilities in recent years, but are probably the best local side. They won the F.A.I. Junior Cup (over 700 teams competed) in 2005. I am sure that Thunderblaster can provide you with a programme from that final.
    I am afraid that the Connaught Junior Cup Final only attracts a crowd of 300 to 500. Junior football is more of a participant sport rather than a spectator sport in this part of the country.

    Westport Town won it in 1949 against Galway Rovers in Galway with Walsh, McGreal and Ryan all netting in a 3-1 win.
    Sligo Bohs probably won it in 1950.

    Thank you Thunderblaster, already have details of all FAI Intermediate & Junior Cup finals.
    Where Westport in the now defunct Connaught Senior League, if so do you know of any honours won by your club in this league, and Connaught Senior Cup wins or final appearances. Have you reached any Connaught Junior Cup finals since your last win in 86/87 against West Utd (Galway) 2-1. Know your Mayo honours and Conn Junior Finals prior to 86/87.Appreciate any info you can give. Have book on Mayo League by Tom Kelly, 2nd oldest club in the province- 1889 formation. With long history has there been any publications on the history of Westport FC ?
