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 […]

I promised I’d provide fixture details for the two camogie matches involving the county this weekend when they became available.

They’re only the fourth ever Mayo club to win an All-Ireland club title, following in the footsteps of Crossmolina Deel Rovers, Ballina Stephenites and […]

Yesterday really was a mega Mayo GAA day – this was reflected in the daily hit count here on the blog, which first crashed through the 50,000 barrier for the first time and then, a few hours later, passed the 60,000 mark, ending the day on 65,586 page views over the 24-hour period – and this morning there’s a bit […]

Kilmeena are the kings of Junior football

While those of us at Clones were focused first and foremost on the match being played out in front of our eyes at St Tiernach’s Park, there was plenty of interest too in what was happening down at Croke Park.

Game day – this one’s a tough test

The lads head north today for our Round 2 outing in this year’s League campaign. Monaghan provide the opposition in this one, with throw-in at St Tiernach’s Park in Clones set for 2pm. Tyrone’s Se├ín Hurson is the ref for it. The match isn’t on television nor is it being streamed so if you don’t plan to be in Clones […]
