Discord chats for club members back for 2024

Those of you who are Mayo Football Podcast club members on Patreon will already know all about our Discord chat service. This is a private chat-room, hosted by Discord, which enables club members and the podcast team to interact before, during and after Mayo matches. It has proved popular with club members since we first launched it at the start […]

This week on the podcast – Mayo Football Podcast 2023 E10

Every week on the Mayo Football Podcast, we make plenty of audio content available to our loyal club members on Patreon. We thought it would be a good idea to give everyone else a taster of this content and so we’re launching a new series on the podcast, providing snippets of audio from our Patreon pods. Rob Murphy and I […]

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.

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 […]

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 […]
