How the League could be even more relevant to the Championship

As the League is now over and the Championship beckons, it’s worth reflecting on how these two competitions relate to each other. At present, provincial winners are the top seeds in the All-Ireland Group Stage, the second seeds are the provincial runners-up, the third seeds are the next four highest finishers in the League and the fourth seeds are a […]

Ladies advance to quarter-finals

Everything was on the line for the county’s women footballers at Hastings Insurance MacHale Park as nothing other than a win over Laois in this afternoon’s final group stage match would have kept Mayo’s season alive. In the end, they did so handsomely, crushing the challenge of the O’Moore County by 2-15 to 0-8 to advance to the All-Ireland quarter-finals […]

All on the line for the ladies tomorrow

Just six days after their last outing, the county’s women footballers are back in Championship action again tomorrow. Laois provide the opposition at Hastings Insurance MacHale Park tomorrow afternoon, where throw-in is 1.30pm. The match is being shown live on RTÉ and tickets for the game are available to purchase here. With Armagh having already beaten both ourselves and Laois […]

Game day – it’s all on the line today

So, after weeks of Championship action where it’s been a case of dancing round the proverbial handbags, with not a bit of jeopardy in sight, the body count has suddenly started to rise. Yesterday the Rossies, Kildare and Donegal all bit the dust and this afternoon at Salthill either ourselves or Galway will follows suit. This means our meeting at […]

Team to play Armagh tomorrow named

A bit earlier this evening we named our team for tomorrow’s LGFA All-Ireland SFC group stage match against Armagh. The game throws in at the Athletic Grounds at 3.30pm tomorrow and is being shown live on TG4. Here’s the team we’ve named for it: Mayo (LGFA All-Ireland SFC v Armagh, 25/6/2023): Laura Brennan (Hollymount); Éilis Ronayne (Davitts), Róisín Flynn (Knockmore), […]

Glancing at Galway, again

This morning’s draw for next weekend’s All-Ireland SFC preliminary quarter-finals pits us, once again, against Galway. Sunday’s match at Pearse Stadium (throw-in 3pm) will be our fourth meeting with the neighbours this year, having played them twice in this year’s National League and before that in the Dome in the pre-season FBD League. Seán Hurson of Tyrone is the ref […]

Sunday fixture leaves ladies’ game out in the cold

The rationale for fixing our All-Ireland SFC preliminary quarter-final match against Galway for next Sunday appears to have been prompted by the Tribesmen’s All-Ireland SHC meeting with Tipperary on Saturday, a match that’s been confirmed for the Gaelic Grounds at 6.15pm that evening, part of a double-header that also features Clare and Dublin. While that’s fine as it goes – […]

Jordan Flynn is our MOTM from yesterday’s game

Right, with the focus already re-fixed towards the match facing us next Sunday, let’s get this final bit of business from yesterday’s game squared away. Jordan Flynn – that’s him claiming primary possession in the photo above – is our MOTM from yesterday’s hugely disappointing game against Cork. The Crossmolina man was our only player to leave the Gaelic Grounds […]
