Mayo Football Podcast episode: County Board meeting matters

Far from the madding crowds, the nuts and bolts of GAA business are done at County Board level. Mayo GAA held their first County Board meeting of the year on Wednesday night in Castlebar and Mike Finnerty went along to hear and see what was being discussed.

Mayo Football Podcast bonus column: Supporters in wait-and-see mode as season develops

In my latest Mayo Football Podcast column, which is part of our new written content offering for our Patreon club members, I look at where I think the collective mindset of Mayo supporters is currently at, in light of the county’s positive opening to this year’s National League campaign and in the wake of the narrow defeat to Kerry on […]

The weekend’s matches

The weekend is fast approaching so it’s time for a quick run-down on the matches involving teams from the county that are coming up over the next few days. We may as well start with the big one. That’s the footballers’ Division One Round 4 clash with Tyrone at Healy Park, Omagh, on Saturday evening. Throw-in for this game is […]

Tyrone thoughts

Right, our trip to Tralee is in the past and coming down the tracks rapidly at us now is a northern expedition on Saturday evening.

When Sam Callinan was harshly shown the line with a bit over ten minutes to go, it looked as if Kerry would go on and win this game with a bit of comfort. They pushed three clear soon after and that appeared to be that. In the closing minutes of a rather strange game, however, our fourteen men fought back […]

Ladies secure morale-boosting draw

Playing away from home this afternoon against high-flying Kerry in Round 4 of the LGFA NFL Division One, the Mayo ladies weren’t given too much of a chance of coming away from Fitzgerald Stadium with any tangible reward. They confounded the odds, however, by claiming an 0-8 apiece draw and earn a precious League point, one that might prove vital […]

Game day – are we travelling more in hope than in confidence for this one?

It’s Austin Stack Park under the lights for us tonight. Our NFL Division One Round 3 meeting with Kerry throws in at the Tralee venue at 7.30pm where Denis O’Mahoney of Tipperary is the ref. The game is live on RTÉ2 and the RTÉ Player and Midwest have live radio commentary as well. The pre-match polls here on the blog […]
