Matches on this weekend

The four matches involving Mayo last weekend are disappearing away in the rearview mirror, the ones that are on next weekend are up ahead and coming closer. It’s a quiet weekend by comparison – just the three games this time – with action on both Saturday and Sunday. Let’s start with the team that won’t be taking the field next […]

Sunday match reports

I dunno about the rest of you but my view is that having the matches back again is just bloody great. Good performances, not-so-good displays – who cares? It’s wonderful to have the games we love to focus on back once again, giving us all hope of life beyond Covid, of a time beyond the time when it seemed that […]

All four Mayo games available to view this weekend

There are four Mayo teams in League action this weekend and, in these days when all matches have to be played behind closed doors, this morning comes welcome confirmation that all four of them will be available to watch. Two of them will be broadcast on TV and the other two will be streamed online. Let’s take them in the […]

The weekend ahead

It’s Monday evening so already it’s time to box away everything about last weekend’s matches and to switch the focus to the action that’s set to take place this coming weekend.

There’s media coverage from yesterday’s action to be […]

Hurlers win again

Both the hurlers and the county’s camogie team had matches against Roscommon, with the hurlers coming out on top while the camogie team lost out after a brave battle. The hurlers were to […]

Mayo 2-21 Down 1-11 – dominant opening round display

If momentum truly is an important factor in this year’s condensed inter-county season, then the early evidence from Mayo is already looking positive. Once we got on top of this National League opener at a rain-soaked MacHale Park today we fairly showed Down a clean pair of heels and we won pulling up well before the finish. We were never […]

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 […]
