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 […]

Key to the win was an excellent first half goal bagged by Rachel Kearns but, as […]

Monday match reports

It’s Monday morning, with Mayo supporters still preoccupied, I’d say, with yesterday’s game. We’re back in Division One but we’re all now anxiously awaiting news about how bad the injuries to Diarmuid and Cillian O’Connor are.
