Another update on All-Ireland final ticket draws

Right, I guess it’s time for another update on draws that are being held for All-Ireland final tickets. This time I’ve broken the list into two – Mayo club and county draws and draws involving clubs from other counties. As before, I’ve flagged those draws that are being newly added to the list. There’s now a total of 28 draws […]

Loads of action this weekend

Saturday night sees the long-awaited start of the National Football League – in which we open the defence of the title we won at Croke Park last March – but our Round 1 opener against Donegal at MacCumhaill Park in Ballybofey that evening isn’t the only Mayo-related action on this weekend. Far from it. In fact, there are no fewer […]

Championship prediction mini-league 2019 – the final result

Right, we’re into that shoving-stuff-up-into-the-attic time of the year so, in that vein, here’s an item that needs to be tagged and filed away. Yes, it’s final results time in the Championship prediction mini-league for 2019. We’ve a clear winner this year, with Peter H leading the way for much of the summer and holding on with some ease to […]

Championship prediction mini-league 2019 – second update

Right, a bit of overdue housekeeping to start the week, as the happy thoughts about Saturday evening start to fade and before the focus gets locked into Killarney next Sunday. I haven’t mentioned what’s been going on in this year’s Championship prediction mini-league for ages. In fact, I can see now that I’ve only done one update – almost two […]

Championship prediction mini-league 2019 – first update

Seeing as the Championship got going over the weekend with action in all four provinces it seems only fair, now that the dust has settled on these opening exchanges, to report on who’s come out of the traps smartest in this year’s Championship prediction mini-league. There’s a real Mayo News football podcast – specifically the New York series – flavour […]

Championship prediction mini-league 2019 – the official launch

It was only when I heard Des Cahill on the radio this morning trying to prise from Tomás Ó Sé some insightful wisdom about how Wexford will do against Louth in Leinster and what fate awaits Clare’s footballers when taking on the might of Waterford that I realised we’re on the cusp of the first proper weekend of Championship football […]

Championship prediction mini-league 2018 – the final result

It’s time to do the final bits of clearing away after this year’s championship and one of the things on that list is to do a final post on this year’s championship prediction mini-league. Not least seeing as we have a winner to announce. The mini-league has kinda been forgotten about this summer, I’m afraid, and that’s my fault, given […]

Championship prediction mini-league 2018 – first update

This is well overdue, given that the provincial championships are nearing their conclusion while the qualifiers are up and running, but better late than never. The battle to be the prediction champion of this Sam Maguire campaign is heating up nicely too. There’s only 30 points separating the top five contestants and with loads of matches still to play this […]

That Friday feeling

Photo: RTÉ It’s Friday afternoon, the weekend is upon us and the hours are now ticking down rapidly to Sunday afternoon at MacHale Park and all that. Part of me holds firmly to the view that a clash of such importance so early in the year is utterly bonkers but, then again, that pretty much sums up the current creaking […]
