Five Mayo players on LGFA All-Star nomination list

The LGFA’s TG4 All-Star nomination list was published earlier today and Mayo’s run to this year’s All-Ireland semi-final has been recognised in the form of five All-Star nominations. Danielle Caldwell is nominated in the full-back line, Kathryn Sullivan in the half-back line, Sinéad Cafferky at midfield, Shauna Howley in the half-forward line and Lisa Cafferky in the full-forward line. All-Ireland […]

Three All-Stars plus YFOTY award for us

The GAA/GPA Gaelic football All-Star awards for 2021 were unveiled on RTÉ a bit earlier on this evening. The football awards had none of the shock value of their hurling equivalents in what was an uncontroversial and largely fair selection. We came away with three All-Stars. Lee Keegan picked up his fifth award, cementing his place as one of the […]

Keith wins Rackard Player of the Year

It’s All-Star week, with this year’s GAA/GPA hurling and football teams set to be announced in a few days time. Ahead of that, earlier on today the 2021 Champion 15 team – comprising players from counties who competed in the Ring, Rackard and Meagher Cups this year – was announced. Our successful Rackard Cup campaign was recognised by the inclusion […]

Lee is, along with Tyrone’s Conor Meyler and Ciaran McGeary […]

Oisín lands YFOTY award as Cillian misses out on FOTY prize

The All-Stars awards show has just concluded on RTÉ2 and, from our perspective, there were no surprises with how the two Footballer of the Year awards went. In the Young Footballer of the Year category we couldn’t lose – probably just as well, seeing how we got shafted in the All-Stars – as all three players on the shortlist came […]

Just two All-Stars for us

The 2020 All-Stars awards will be presented tomorrow night, with the ceremony live on RTE2 (throw-in 6.30pm), but ahead of that the football All-Star team for the year just gone was unveiled this morning. The All-Stars forever see bizarre selections. This year they’ve outdone themselves as our run to the All-Ireland final and a creditable display in the final yielded […]

Chris Barrett checks out

On the same day that he was named as an All-Star nominee for the fifth time, Chris Barrett today announced his retirement as an inter-county player. He’s the fifth Mayo player to do so since the start of the year and the official announcement from Mayo GAA is here. Chris Barrett was another one of the famed Class of 2006, […]
