Mayo Football Podcast episode: Final Whistle – Mayo v Club Stars charity game

Our final Final Whistle pod of 2023 took us back to the Dome for this afternoon’s fundraising game in aid of the Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association which featured a Mayo selection up against a Club Stars team. In a high-scoring encounter played in the weather-proof conditions under the Dome, Mayo ran out the winners by 7-20 to 0-17. After […]

Goals galore under the Dome

It was, in hindsight, an inspired decision to shift this match from Claremorris to the Dome. On my way down from Dublin this morning I’d battled through heavy rain and howling winds but the day down here in the west was fine and sunny for a time. The beating rain outside was, though, clearly audible during the match and, sitting […]

Ticketing and streaming details for Mayo GAA charity game

With only a few hours to go ’till Christmas Eve it definitely feels like it’s past time to shut up shop here for the festive season. However, ticketing and streaming details for the charity match between a Mayo selection and a county Club Stars team at Claremorris this day week (30th December, throw-in 1.30pm) have now been confirmed so it’s […]

Club Stars and Galway FBD review – Mayo News football podcast 2020 E1

We’re starting 2020 on the Mayo News football podcast with a mixture of off-field and on-field action. Our first episode of the year focuses on the Club Stars annual awards banquet, which attracted a bumper attendance to the Knockranny Hotel in Westport on Saturday night, before moving onto MacHale Park in Castlebar yesterday afternoon where Mayo took on Galway in […]

Club Stars + yesterday’s action

The Club Stars event last night was great fun, with the added advantage that I’m waking up here in Westport this morning with only only a short trot to complete to get to MacHale Park a bit later on. The ballroom in the Knockranny was full to capacity last night, with a succession of award winners honoured on the night. […]

The weekend’s action

While the main focus for most supporters this weekend will be the FBD semi-final against Galway at MacHale Park on Sunday afternoon (throw-in 2pm), that’s not the only action that’s on. Tomorrow there’s a choice between club and county, with matches of interest taking place in Ennis and Ballina. At Cusack Park in Ennis Kilmaine face Na Gaeil of Kerry […]

End of year special – Mayo News football podcast 2019 E50

It’s been a long year of Mayo GAA action – we’ve had club and county, underage and senior, ladies and lads, League and Championship. There’s been plenty of chat about all of these and more on the Mayo News football podcast over the the last twelve months and now, on New Year’s Eve, we’re signing off on 2019 with our […]

As expected, Senior champions Ballintubber lead the way with eleven nominees, followed by beaten county finalists Ballaghaderreen on eight. Other clubs to feature […]

Galway FBD League review – Mayo News football podcast 2019 E2

It turns out that penalty shootouts in Gaelic football are like buses – you wait forever for one to come along and then two arrive together. And so it was yesterday at Tuam Stadium where, just seven days after the novelty of seeing a spot-kick tie-breaker against Leitrim in Carrick-on-Shannon, a late, late goal by Galway forced Mayo into a […]
