Scotstown & Coolderry win county titles
The Nemeton team had a busy weekend travelling around the country for GAA BEO!
The Monaghan county final was live on TG4 on Sunday. Scotstown claimed their fourth Monaghan Senior football title in a row after they defeated Ballybay Pearse Brothers.
For the deferred game, the team were in Tullamore. Coolderry won the Offaly Senior Hurling Final after they defeated last year’s champions Kilcormac-Killoughey, making it their 31st title in all.
Check out some of the best bits from the two games here.
Motherwell v Livingston
This weekend our attention is fully on the Scottish Premiership as Motherwell take on Livingston. We’ll be producing full coverage in our BBC ALBA featured match.
Stephen Robinson’s men will be hoping to bounce back from that 3-1 defeat over Kilmarnock last weekend and pick up valuable points. However, Livingston so far are proving to be a tricky side to deal with, having defeated Steven Gerrard’s Rangers last week.
With their confidence high, will the mighty Lions be able to snatch these 3 point from the Steelmen?
