Monday match reports

Well, that’s it for another year at Senior level, as we exited tamely from the Championship yesterday to Kerry at the quarter-final stage. It’s not all doom and gloom, of course, as the Minors have an All-Ireland final to look forward to in two weeks time and the women are still in it too. Here’s what’s online about the weekend’s […]

Mighty Minors are into the final

Semi-finals are, as the saying goes, for winning. And that’s what Mayo’s Minors did today at O’Connor Park in Tullamore, as they got the better of Kerry by 1-8 to 0-9 in the All-Ireland MFC semi-final. It was an extremely nervy encounter, which was understandable given all that was at stakes for both sets of young players. This meant loads […]

Team for Christy Ring Cup final named

The team and substitutes for tomorrow’s Christy Ring Cup final against Kildare at Croke Park (throw-in 5pm) have been named. In a nice touch, the team announcement for the title decider includes not just the names of all those on the match day panel but also the members of the extended panel. Here’s the full list we’ve named: Mayo (Christy […]

The weekend’s matches

Friday has rolled around once again and this weekend there are three Mayo matches – including a real biggie – taking place. Two of these are on tomorrow and the other one is on Sunday.

Defeats in camogie final and in hurling game

The two matches the county was involved in today ended, sadly, in defeat. Starting with the camogie, the Mayo Minors this afternoon contested the All-Ireland Minor C Championship final against Wicklow. It was a very strong team from the Garden County and they dominated the first half, leading by 3-4 to 0-1 at the break. Wicklow added a fourth goal […]

Fixture details for weekend’s camogie games

I promised I’d provide fixture details for the two camogie matches involving the county this weekend when they became available. Caroline from Mayo Camogie has now got back to me with those details so here they are. The Camogie League Division 4 meeting with Tyrone on Saturday has been fixed for Tooreen where throw-in is 2pm. There may be a […]
