Season ticket on sale for next year

Last week on the podcast – Mayo Football Podcast 2023 E18

Ever since the final whistle sounded at Croke Park on Sunday before last, Mayo fans have been coming to terms with the county’s exit from this year’s Championship, with Dublin defeating them comfortably at the All-Ireland quarter-final stage.

At half-time in today’s All-Ireland quarter-final, we were well in the game.

It was a deserved win too in what was in large part a rather muted contest, in which both sides tended to pull their […]

Game day – a final worth winning

We’re back at Croke Park this afternoon – for the first time since last June’s All-Ireland quarter-final defeat to Kerry – and we’re back competing for a national title. Galway provide the opposition in this afternoon’s National League Division One final and Kildare’s Brendan Cawley is the ref for a game that throws in at HQ at 4pm today and […]
