Scene set for the week ahead – Mayo News Football Podcast 2022 E15

A big week lies ahead for Mayo GAA, with Championship matches involving the county taking place over the coming days at Senior, Under 20 and Minor (U17) levels. In this episode of the Mayo News Football Podcast, Mike Finnerty, Rob Murphy and I set the scene for what’s going to be a busy week on and off the field. We […]

It’s all action on the podcast this week

Those of you who’ve joined our podcast club on Patreon will know that we’ve been busy since the start of the year. By this Wednesday evening, in fact, we’ll have released our 60th podcast of the year, with fifteen of those also made available for free on other podcast platforms. If anything, we’re quickening our pace this week, ahead of […]

‘Here Comes the Weekend’ a podcast highlight this year

Those of you who have already signed up as podcast club members on Patreon will know all about the volume of podcast content we’ve made available so far this year. We have, to be precise, put online 38 podcast episodes since we launched the service back in January, with loads more in the same vein to come over too over […]

Game day – keep moving on up

We’re back in National League action this evening, in what’s an eagerly anticipated clash between the top two teams in Division One this year. It’s Kerry we’re up against at Austin Stack Park in Tralee (throw-in 7.30pm), the match is live on RTÉ2 and Kildare’s Brendan Cawley is the ref. It would be tempting to ascribe – as many have […]

Four Mayo matches on this weekend

This coming weekend is set to be another busy one for teams from the county, with four matches set to take place. One of these takes place on Saturday while the other three are on Sunday. The game on Saturday involves the U20 footballers who play their second match in the Leo Murphy Cup. This one’s away to Derry, at […]

Armagh game not on TV

In different ways, I think we’re all finding the unwinding of Covid measures a bit strange. Do we really want to go without masks on public transport? Who, in truth, wants to return to commuting and the office five days a week? And how on earth are we going to live without having every GAA match either broadcast or streamed […]

Sunday match reports

It was a late enough night for me last night – it was gone ten by the time we’d finished up our podcast yabbering and managed to find an open exit from Croke Park and it was close to midnight by the time I’d the match report done, with a very satisfying re-watch still to do and beers to be […]

Podcast plans for the Dublin game

We’ve been counting down the days all week on the podcast ahead of the Dublin match tomorrow evening and there’ll be no let up either once the ball is thrown in at Croke Park. Our lead-in to this clash began on Tuesday when we released an episode for our club members on Patreon in which Mike was in conversation with […]

LGFA and camogie team news

Mayo are in LGFA National League action on Sunday against Galway at Tuam Stadium (throw-in 2pm) and the team for this game was named earlier on today. Not surprisingly, it’s the same team that started in the big win over Westmeath at the Dome last weekend. Here it is: Mayo (LGFA NFL Division One v Galway, 20/2/2022): Aisling Tarpey (Foxrock […]

The weekend’s matches

The big match at Croke Park on Saturday night is the one most people are talking about right now but the Mayo/Dublin match isn’t the only one involving the county that’s on this coming weekend. On Saturday afternoon, the county’s camogie team start their 2022 League campaign. Last year, you’ll recall, saw Mayo compete at inter-county level once again after […]
