Teams named to play Armagh and Waterford

I got caught on the hop a bit there but a short while ago we named our starting fifteen to play Armagh up at the Athletic Grounds on Sunday (throw-in 3.30pm). It’s the same fifteen who started last Saturday night against Galway and, for the record, here is the team: Mayo (NFL Division One v Armagh 5/2/2023): Colm Reape (Knockmore); […]

Sunday match reports

Last night was, thanks to Ryan’s outrageous score at the finish, one of the good nights at MacHale Park. His late, late point into the bacon factory end ensured we avoided defeat to Galway in League or Championship at the venue for the first time since the 2014 Connacht final.

Mayo 1-11 Galway 2-8: Ryan rescues precious point

When Ryan O’Donoghue launched a screamer into the night sky at the Galway posts deep in stoppage time tonight, the enormous roar that went around MacHale Park showed what the home fans felt about the result the Belmullet man had pulled from the fire for us.
