All eyes will be on MacHale Park tomorrow for the men’s football game against Meath but today it’s the women who take centre-stage. Deservedly too, as both the county’s camogie and LGFA teams are coming into their matches this weekend on a high, having both tasted success last time out.
Victory over Kildare last Saturday will surely have come as a major boost in confidence to the camogie team. So too must have the appearance at training in Ballyvary during the week of legendary Mayo camogie player Josie Ruane (pictured above).
Josie captained the only Mayo team ever to contest an All-Ireland camogie final, back in 1959, and at training the other evening she had some well-chosen words of encouragement for the current generation of players. That’ll certainly send them into today’s Camogie Leagues Division 4 clash with Louth on a high.
Today’s match takes place on home turf in Tooreen, where throw-in is 2pm, and details of the Mayo team for this game are here. The match is being streamed live, with full commentary, on the Mayo Camogie Facebook page – link here.
Then this evening, up in Ballybofey, the women’s football team are aiming to make it two wins from two in their LGFA Division 1A campaign. I don’t know about the rest of you but last Saturday evening’s smash-and-grab success over Galway made my weekend and I’d say that Michael Moyles’ team will come into this one positively buzzing.
A second win – and a first away from home – would put us in a great position in the division but Donegal, who won well over Westmeath at the same venue last weekend, will be well up for battle this evening too. The Mayo team to play Donegal was named yesterday and details on that are here.
This match is also being streamed live, on the LGFA/Lidl Player, and the link for it is here.
The best of luck to both Mayo teams in their respective contests today.
