Ring Cup clash with Derry fixed for MacHale Park

Mayo GAA confirmed earlier on today that next Saturday’s crunch Christy Ring Cup clash with Derry next Saturday will be played at MacHale Park. The official announcement on this is here. In that announcement, Saturday’s game – which throws in at Castlebar at 1pm – has been styled as a Ring Cup semi-final. In competition terms that’s not strictly speaking […]

Hurlers should be allowed to play at MacHale Park
