The weekend’s games

The world keeps turning. As it always does, as it must. The last while, when I’ve been inactive here, hasn’t been kind for Mayo clubs. All three of the men’s teams fell at the first hurdle in their respective Connacht club Championships, all to Galway opposition. LGFA Senior champions Burrishoole bowed out, also to a Galway team, in the Connacht […]

The weekend’s matches

After a quiet weekend on the club front last time out – when only Tooreen were in action, beating London’s St Gabriel’s to clinch their place in the Connacht IHC final – the weekend coming up is, by contrast, a busy enough one. Starting with men’s football, Westport take the field for the very first time in the Connacht SFC […]

Connacht club Championship fixtures

The club Championship action within the county is over and so now, with the clocks having gone back and the cloaking darkness of the long winter nights back with us, the focus turns towards the provincial campaigns facing the various county champions. Time, then, for a quick overview on what’s facing our local standard-bearers on that front over the next […]

County final weekend round-up

The dust is settling on the weekend’s county final action, one which saw Westport finally seal a historic first ever Moclair Cup title success, while Ballyhaunis and Islandeady claimed county titles at Intermediate and Junior respectively and, with that, progression back to higher level Championship football next year. The only place to start is, of course, Westport’s breakthrough win over […]

Here’s the full list of games on this coming weekend. On Saturday, the double header […]

It’s Roscommon in the Connacht quarter-final for us next year

The draws for next year’s provincial Championships have just been held, broadcast live on RTÉ Radio One’s Saturday Sport show, and we’ve been drawn against Roscommon in the quarter-final. So, for Kevin McStay, his first Championship outing as Mayo manager will be against the previous county he managed, Roscommon. In what’s an utterly lopsided draw, the winners of our match […]

Galway get tactics right to claim Minor title

I’m not long in the door from Roscommon, with midnight just gone by so there’s no point spending too long on this one. Galway deservedly beat us in this evening’s All-Ireland Minor football final, in a game where we never really got going and where the team didn’t do themselves justice at all. There was a big crowd of over […]

Minors ready to take final step

We’re counting down the hours now ahead of this evening’s All-Ireland Minor football Championship final. It’s a first ever all-Connacht Championship decider, in which we play Galway. Dr Hyde Park in Roscommon is the venue, throw-in is 7.15pm and the match is live on TG4, with live radio commentary on Midwest as well. Niall Cullen from Fermanagh is the ref. […]
