Upcoming fixtures + club Championship draws

There are fixtures involving the county this weekend but there are also other matches coming up in the weeks ahead so it’s worthwhile setting out what’s on when. Before that, though, it’s only right to report on two Mayo matches played this evening. These were in Masters football and, at the other end of the age spectrum, U16 ladies football. […]

U17s dig out good win

I was out tonight and so I didn’t see the U17s’ Connacht Championship match earlier on against Roscommon and, of course, it’s too late now to go into it in any detail. The win is worth mentioning, though, as it was one chiselled out in the face of some adversity. The opening half in this evening’s game saw Roscommon race […]

Nationals: Irish Examiner, Irish Times, Irish Independent, Irish Mirror (live […]

Mayo 0-16 Galway 1-14: late surge masks flat display as visitors edge it

Well, the new pitch looked bloody gorgeous. Setting eyes on the carpet-like playing surface for the first time today, the one thought that came into my mind was that we needed to put on a display to grace the new underfoot conditions. What we got, sadly, was a performance several levels below this. I argued on the Final Whistle podcast […]

Game day – it’s a high stakes homecoming

It’s here – the day that’s been pencilled in so many diaries for the last number of months, the match everyone said was the real focus when both ourselves and Galway were playing our final few respective League matches, the game that could make or break either of us this year. Yes, it’s here and it’s happening today. Unlike our […]
