Mayo GAA news, views and over a century of results

The day before

The time is now ticking down rapidly ahead of the footballers’ first competitive outing of 2021. In fact we’re now less than 24 hours out from the big throw-in. To complicate matters, there are three separate Mayo matches that are worth keeping track of tomorrow. The footballers’ NFL Division Two North clash with Down at MacHale Park at 2pm we […]

Roscommon review – Mayo News football podcast 2020 E34

2015 was the most recent year Mayo featured in a Connacht final and this year defending champions Roscommon stood in the way of a first provincial final appearance by the Green and Red in five years.

David Brady’s Laochra Gael had just aired and we faced into an indefinite number of months without sport.  It was a tough slog, we kept ourselves entertained with 5km challenges, zoom quizzes and reruns of Reeling in The Years and Love/Hate.
