Monday match reports

It’s always nice to wake up on the morning after a win over the neighbours and to think back on what happened the day before. Yes, we won. Yes, we knocked them out of the Championship: that’s the fourth time we’ve done this since 2019. Yes, we’re in the hat for this morning’s All-Ireland quarter-final draw. It’s all a bit […]

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 […]

Armagh won this afternoon’s encounter at O’Moore Park by 3-12 to 2-8. The Orchard County – who lined out without their star turn Aimee Mackin, though she joined the fray […]

LGFA and Minor fixtures confirmed

The GAA are still resolutely refusing to show their hand on when and where the Round 3 fixtures in the All-Ireland SFC group stage will be played but the dates for our two LGFA All-Ireland SFC group stage matches were confirmed yesterday and so too today were details of our Minor All-Ireland quarter-final against Monaghan. In the LGFA Championship we’re […]

LGFA and Minor opposition confirmed

Two provincial finals played in Ulster today confirmed Mayo’s next opponents in both the LGFA Senior football Championship and the Minor football Championship. The LGFA Ulster Championship was won today by Donegal, who beat Armagh in the final at Owenbeg by 1-10 to 0-9. The result was a bit of a surprise and it means that Armagh will be in […]

This weekend’s matches

The warm glow of victory in Killarney hasn’t yet subsided properly – although Jim McGuinness’s asinine nonsense in the Irish Times this morning about our “lack of a marquee forward” injected a stab of grumpiness in my mood today – but already the focus is shifting towards this coming weekend and more Mayo matches. It’s a weekend off for the […]
