Mayo GAA Blog is a fan’s eye website dedicated to the ups and downs of following Mayo’s footballing fortunes.
Although initially very much a solo-run, the site has over the years been graced by input from a number of guest contributors. If you fancy joining their ranks, drop me an email and we’ll take it from there.
Many of the match photos that feature on the site were taken by myself on the day in question but a good number were also taken by Michael Maye (AKA Mayo Mick) whose photo gallery is here.
Over the years a lively community has also developed around the comments section and new contributors in this area are always welcome. There are some simple house rules which apply to everyone providing comments on the site – details here – so if you haven’t already joined the debate then please have a quick read first about what’s expected of those doing so.
Just so you know – this place doesn’t operate like a social media platform and so people aren’t allowed to post insulting or offensive material. Because of this, the standard of debate here is generally healthy and positive and the aim is to keep it that way.
The site also contains a comprehensive and fully searchable archive of the county’s senior league and championship results down the years. This now encompasses all of our results in competitive matches right back to when we first kicked a ball in anger in the championship, i.e. 1902, with team details (where these are available) as far back as 1914. The results archive is accessible here.
Needless to say, this site has no formal affiliation with nor any official benediction bestowed on it by the GAA. And, of course, I’m not the real Willie Joe either. I’m just a fan and most of you know who I am at this stage.
The site is hosted on Siteground and is powered by WordPress. It originally saw the light of day, in February 2007, on Blogger (here it is). The current design of the site uses the Moesia theme.
The post-match audio reports that I do are recorded and hosted on Anchor (here) – previously they were on Audioboom (here) – and I sometimes take video clips of key moments of matches, which are on YouTube (here).
The site also has a presence on Twitter and Facebook but, to be honest, that’s only for show and I only use them to link to blog posts here. There’s no point trying to communicate or interact with me on either platform as I’m not active on them and consider both to be, at least in part, responsible for all the madness in the world at the present time. I’m happy, though, to communicate at length here.
