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 […]

Mayo 5-20 Tipperary 3-13: Cillian runs riot in Tipp thumping

Well, hands up all those of you who saw that coming. I did have the idle thought ahead of throw-in today that, if we started well in today’s All-Ireland semi-final with Tipperary, we might just gut them but I still didn’t expect it to happen. But gut them we did and this game was well over as a contest before […]

Hope springs eternal

This article first appeared in this week’s edition of the Mayo News as the ‘On the Road’ piece in the sports supplement – it’s here.

Mayo 1-13 Kerry 1-14: stirring comeback just falls short

At half-time this game couldn’t end quickly enough for us. Thoroughly outplayed in a chastening opening period, a hammering at the hands of a lively, inventive Kerry looked more a probability than a possibility. Few of us in the 8,069 crowd that had gathered in perishingly cold weather for this match could have predicted what was to unfold after the […]

Venue changes for LGFA and NHL matches tomorrow

Given the incessantly inclement weather we’ve been enduring in recent weeks, late venues changes for matches have understandably become more common. Once again there are a few to report this weekend, with tomorrow’s LGFA game against Cork and the NHL one against Offaly now going ahead at altered locations. For the women, the switch sees their LGFA NFL Division One […]
