Here, courtesy of Aidan Morley, is a live stream of this afternoon’s Rackard Cup Round 2 match between Mayo and Leitrim at MacHale Park.
It’s the morning after the day before, a day when Mayo came out of the traps fast to blow Sligo away in the opening round of this year’s Connacht Championship. It was as good a performance from James Horan’s team as anyone could have wished for in advance and that’s pretty much reflected in the media coverage of the game. […]
Mayo’s hurlers got their Rackard Cup campaign off to the best possible start this afternoon. Trailing Donegal at O’Donnell Park in Letterkenny for much of the game, they struck late via a goal from Keith Higgins and won by three points, on a scoreline of 2-14 to 0-17. My focus was elsewhere while this game was being played, though I […]
Hot on the heels of this year’s shortened National League campaign we’re now pitched straight into the Championship. Today the first shots of the summer season are set to be fired and our lads are in Connacht SFC action this afternoon against Sligo at Markievicz Park (throw-in 4.30pm). There’s an element of back to the future in this year’s Championship. […]
The county’s hurlers are in Rackard Cup action tomorrow, as they travel to Letterkenny to play Donegal (throw-in 2.30pm). Here’s the team we’ve named for this match at O’Donnell Park. Mayo (Rackard Cup v Donegal, 26/6/2021): Bobby Douglas (Tooreen); Gary Nolan (Tooreen), Michael Morley (Tooreen), Daniel Huane (Tooreen); Conor Henry (Tooreen), Pearse McCrann (Tooreen), David Kenny (Tooreen); Seán Regan (Tooreen), […]
With only 200 supporters allowed to attend the match at Markievicz Park on Saturday, the only option for the vast majority of us will be to tune in on TV. The hurlers are also in action earlier the same afternoon and, no doubt, some of you will be interested in seeing that game too. Let’s start with the hurling match. […]
The draw was made today for this year’s Nicky Rackard Cup, hurling’s fourth tier Championship in which we’ll once again be competing this summer. Last year we lost out narrowly in the decider to Donegal and that’s who we face first in this year’s competition. I’d always thought that the Rackard winners compete at Christy Ring level the following year […]
Up until the first water break, the county’s hurlers were well in charge of today’s Rackard Cup decider at Croke Park. A steady succession of points – the bulk of them frees from Shane Boland – saw us open up a six-point gap at the end of the first quarter. From then on, though, it was underdogs Donegal who showed […]
Here, courtesy of TG4 via YouTube, is the live stream for today’s Rackard Cup final at Croke Park between Mayo and Donegal. Throw-in is 1.30pm and details from the match programme of the starting teams are here. Up Mayo!
I was out on the bike this morning, on a route that kept me, just about, within a 5km radius of home. Not long into the spin – the winter air cool and the sky clear, into which a low sun was rising – I passed not far from Croke Park. Immediately the thought sprang into my mind: we’ve a […]
