LGFA team to play Dublin named

Earlier on today we named our team to face defending champions Dublin in the LGFA All-Ireland SFC semi-final at Croke Park on Saturday. The game throws in at 3.45pm that afternoon and here’s the team we’re going with for it: Mayo (LGFA All-Ireland SFC semi-final v Dublin 14/8/2021): Laura Brennan (Hollymount); Saoirse Lally (Westport), Dayna Finn (Kiltimagh), Clodagh McManamon (Burrishoole, […]

Midweek round-up

It’s midweek and our double All-Ireland semi-final meeting with Dublin on Saturday at Croke Park is now just three days away. It definitely has the air of an occasion that’s surreptitiously creeping up on us but maybe that’s just me because, to be honest, I haven’t a whole load of free time to be thinking about the football right now. […]

Double-header for Saturday week

It was no real surprise when earlier on today it was confirmed that the LGFA SFC All-Ireland semi-final between ourselves and Dublin will feature as the curtain-raiser to the men’s All-Ireland semi-final featuring the same two counties at Croke Park on Saturday week. The women’s semi-final has been fixed for 3.45pm that afternoon and the men’s game throws in at […]

Tuesday match reports

A round-up of match reports on a Tuesday morning is a bit of a rarity here on the blog but there were matches on involving Mayo over the last three days so here’s a very quick gallop on the resultant coverage that’s out there on these games. Rackard Cup final: GAA, Mayo GAA, RTÉ, BBC, Mayo Advertiser, Connaught Telegraph, Western […]

Ladies hold out to make the semis

At half-time in today’s LGFA SFC quarter-final at MacHale Park it looked as if Mayo were going to beat Galway with considerable ease. The neighbours weren’t, though, prepared to bow out without a fight and it took some determined rearguard action for Michael Moyles’ team to seal a hard-fought 1-15 to 1-11 win over Galway. After heavy rain in the […]

LGFA team to play Galway named

The county’s women footballers take centre-stage tomorrow, as they take on Galway in the LGFA SFC quarter-final. The game throws in at MacHale Park at 1.45pm and it’ll be broadcast live by TG4. Here’s the team we’ve named for this knockout fixture.

The weekend’s matches

Another weekend is fast approaching – a Bank Holiday one too – and, with it, more Championship action involving teams from the county. There’s football on this coming weekend but not involving the men this time and there’s plenty of small ball action too. Let’s start with what’s surely the most significant tie of the weekend, the one where national […]

Monday match reports

That warm, happy, sloppy-grin feeling hasn’t yet subsided and my voice isn’t close to coming back either – it should be okay by Wednesday, I reckon – so not even the reality of another Monday morning and the imminent end of the good weather can take away the after-glow from yesterday. We’re once again the Connacht champions and yesterday we […]

Shauna lands decisive kick as ladies shade it

For the second time in less than a week a Mayo team today found itself having to undergo trial by shootout. This time it was the women’s football team and the shootout involved free kicks rather than penalties but, from our perspective, it finished in the same happy way. That wasn’t the only point of commonality between today’s LGFA SFC […]
