Tooreen too hot to handle for Athleague

The weather is fairly bracing countrywide right now but, at Dr Hyde Park in Roscommon this afternoon, Tooreen’s hurlers proved way too hot for Athleague to handle. This match – a Connacht club IHC quarter-final tie – went decisively in the Mayo club’s favour as they overwhelmed their Roscommon opponents by 0-28 to 2-7. The match was streamed live this […]

Bad draw for both ourselves and Galway

The 2022 Connacht Championship draw that was made a short while ago today certainly didn’t do ourselves or Galway any favours. We’ve been drawn against each other at the quarter-final stage, with the winners then facing Leitrim or London in the semis. On the other side of the draw, meanwhile, Roscommon have to all intents and purposes been handed a […]

Provincial Championship draws on tomorrow

The contours of next year’s inter-county season will take further shape tomorrow, as the provincial Championship draws are set to take place then. Unlike the pre-Covid era, it’ll be a low-key event broadcast on RTÉ Radio 1’s Saturday Sport show where the draws will take place just after 3pm. With the defeat of the reform proposals for inter-county competition structures […]

FBD returns for ’22, season ticket back too

The January pre-season competitions, shelved this year due to Covid, were meant to be axed permanently arising from the mooted changes to inter-county competition structures. Instead it was the planned changes that bit the dust – for now at least – and so it’s no surprise that the pre-season tournaments will be back once again in the New Year. For […]

Boyler takes his final bow

It was only fitting that he would be the last man standing from the U21 Class of 2006. Colm Boyle, whose retirement from the inter-county ranks at the age of 35 was confirmed by Mayo GAA today, epitomised everything that was great about the Mayo team that competed consistently at the top level in Gaelic football over the past decade. […]

Senior club final review – Mayo News football podcast 2021 E42

There was a real sense of occasion at James Stephens Park in Ballina on Sunday where this year’s Mayo Senior football Championship final was contested by Knockmore and Belmullet. The exchanges between these two North Mayo rivals were often tough and uncompromising but when the dust settled it was defending champions Knockmore who had come out on top, as they […]

Knockmore seal back-to-back title success

There was a real sense of occasion at James Stephens Park today, where a packed attendance saw Knockmore claim back-to-back Senior county Championships as they beat Belmullet by 1-9 to 0-6. On a heavy pitch in a contest where the exchanges were frantic and often fairly fierce, this was never going to be a high quality encounter. With the stakes […]
