Ladies open Championship campaign with a win

Mayo got their LGFA Senior Championship campaign underway in positive fashion this afternoon at Markievicz Park. They were always too strong for Cavan in this opening round fixture in Group 1 of the Championship, winning fairly comfortably on a scoreline of 1-18 to 0-15. Key to the win was an excellent first half goal bagged by Rachel Kearns but, as […]

Ladies Championship campaign starts tomorrow

The LGFA football Championship swings into action this weekend. The Mayo women take the field tomorrow, with their opening round match in Group 1 of the Senior Championship against Cavan taking place at Markievicz Park in Sligo, where throw-in is 2pm. The game is being streamed live on the LGFA/TG4 Player, the link for which is here. Tickets are also […]

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. And we’re facing into Championship with a defence that’s so porous it’s simply not funny anymore. But it is Monday so, you know, work […]

Three tough tests today

There are three separate Mayo teams in competitive action today, in three different codes at three different venues. It’s a real jam-packed weekend for the county, with the men’s footballers facing a crunch promotion decider against Clare tomorrow as well. Today it’s hurling, camogie and women’s football that are in focus. Three extremely tough games they’re set to be too, […]

Coverage details for this weekend’s games

There are four matches, in four different codes, involving Mayo teams this coming weekend. All four games will be available to view live from the comfort of your own homes, with one being broadcast on TV and the other three streamed. There’s also a team from Mayo contesting an All-Ireland final in a GAA code this coming Sunday. I’ll get […]

Four matches to follow this coming weekend

As well as being a long weekend it was a quiet one on the following Mayo front, with yesterday’s LGFA match against Westmeath the only one on that involved the county. But hold onto your hats as next weekend approaches as there are four Mayo teams in action then, facing opposition from Ulster, Munster and Leinster. Saturday is the busier […]

2020, meet 1920 … and 1922

It’s funny the way things go. Earlier this year, when the Covid-19 pandemic had wiped all live sporting activity, as well as so much more besides, from the map, I went scrabbling for the record books to see if I could find a comparable year, one in which the Championship hadn’t been contested. I had to go back all the […]

Down to the final four

Well, here we are. The Covid-era rapid-fire Championship of 2020 is down to the final four and we’re still standing. An odd quartet we certainly make, even if, from a historical standpoint, this year’s All-Ireland semi-final pairings are nothing if not apposite. I think it’s fair to say, though, that even a few short weeks ago nobody would have predicted […]
