Tipperary review – Mayo News football podcast 2020 E43

Mayo’s footballers have provided so many memorable Croke Park performances over the past decade. The devastating way that they put Tipperary to the sword in an eerily empty and fog-bound Croke Park was one to savour by Mayo supporters, even if they all had to do this watching on at home on TV. The Mayo News football podcast was, though, […]

Mayo 5-20 Tipperary 3-13: Cillian runs riot in Tipp thumping

Well, hands up all those of you who saw that coming. I did have the idle thought ahead of throw-in today that, if we started well in today’s All-Ireland semi-final with Tipperary, we might just gut them but I still didn’t expect it to happen. But gut them we did and this game was well over as a contest before […]

Game day – semi-finals are for winning

Down the road from me here – little more than a twenty-minute tramp – the weekend’s first […]

The weekend’s matches

It’s already time to start thinking about the Championship matches involving the county that are on this coming weekend. There are three of them, all of the knockout variety, and there’s also some silverware up for grabs. All three games are available to watch this weekend and Midwest Radio will be providing commentary on them too. Let’s look at the […]

This weekend’s matches

Once again it’s time to start thinking about the weekend to come and the Championship games that are set to be contested. The hurlers have this one off, as their Rackard Cup semi-final isn’t scheduled to take place until Saturday week (14th November). In that game, by the way, they’ll face either Leitrim or Longford, with those two set to […]
