Mayo GAA news, views and over a century of results

Monday match reports

It’s Monday morning, with Mayo supporters still preoccupied, I’d say, with yesterday’s game. We’re back in Division One but we’re all now anxiously awaiting news about how bad the injuries to Diarmuid and Cillian O’Connor are. And we’re facing into Championship with a defence that’s so porous it’s simply not funny anymore. But it is Monday so, you know, work […]

Three tough tests today

There are three separate Mayo teams in competitive action today, in three different codes at three different venues. It’s a real jam-packed weekend for the county, with the men’s footballers facing a crunch promotion decider against Clare tomorrow as well. Today it’s hurling, camogie and women’s football that are in focus. Three extremely tough games they’re set to be too, […]

Coverage details for this weekend’s games

There are four matches, in four different codes, involving Mayo teams this coming weekend. All four games will be available to view live from the comfort of your own homes, with one being broadcast on TV and the other three streamed. There’s also a team from Mayo contesting an All-Ireland final in a GAA code this coming Sunday. I’ll get […]

Four matches to follow this coming weekend

As well as being a long weekend it was a quiet one on the following Mayo front, with yesterday’s LGFA match against Westmeath the only one on that involved the county. But hold onto your hats as next weekend approaches as there are four Mayo teams in action then, facing opposition from Ulster, Munster and Leinster. Saturday is the busier […]

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 plenty of it too, with no fewer than four Mayo games down for decision between Saturday and Sunday. Like last weekend, there are League matches in football, hurling […]

Tom takes his leave

It’s said that bad news comes in threes. If so there was some inevitability to the announcement today that Tom Parsons has become the third Mayo player in as many days to announce his retirement from the inter-county game. Tom’s decision to call time on his days as a Mayo player isn’t enormously surprising, even if his most recent appearance […]
