Down review and Westmeath preview – Mayo News football podcast 2021 E4

Mayo made a very positive start to the inter-county year last weekend as they proved far too strong for Down in their opening round meeting in Division Two North of the Allianz Football League. This coming weekend James Horan and his team hit the road for the first time in this campaign, travelling to Mullingar to take on Westmeath at […]

The Lake County list

Cusack Park in Mullingar is our next destination in this year’s National League Division Two North campaign. On Saturday we’re set to face Westmeath there in a game that throws in at 3pm that afternoon. The match is being broadcast live on Eir Sport and Noel Mooney of Cavan is the ref for it.

Or, indeed, that the ladies would reap revenge on Galway to gain supremacy in Connacht once more before galloping their way into a semi-final spot […]

Ladies into the semis

In this afternoon’s LGFA All-Ireland quarter-final at Pearse Park in Longford the Mayo girls eventually won through on a scoreline of 2-10 to 1-11. No more than Waterloo, this afternoon’s encounter with the Lake […]
