Mayo 0-14 Monaghan 2-14: McManus engineers another great Farney escape

Well, that’s our unbeaten run gone. The supporting cast put in an understandably disjointed display this afternoon against a hugely motivated Monaghan team, for whom the wily Conor McManus up front ran the show.

It’s worth a shot asking for Saturday League final

A piece by John Fogarty in the Irish Examiner today (here) confirms that the Mayo Senior footballers have been in contact with the GAA’s Central Competitions Control Committee (CCCC) to request that the Division One final be shifted from Sunday 2nd April to Saturday 1st. The players’ request apparently articulated concerns about the quick turnaround between the League final and […]
