Seventh heaven under the Dome

Mayo got their LGFA National League campaign off to the best possible start tonight. They seized the lead against Westmeath in the Dome right from the throw-in and proceeded to dominate proceedings from then to the finish, powering to an utterly lopsided 7-22 to 1-12 win. We had the ball in the net within seconds of the start. Maria Reilly’s […]

Our week on Patreon – it’s been another busy one

Just another quick update about what we’ve been up to over on Patreon, where club members have again had to cope with a significant amount of podcast content and other stuff coming in their direction. The fun started on Discord on Sunday where we were across the matches at St Tiernach’s Park – where Mike, in effect, had a live […]

LGFA opener on this evening

The LGFA inter-county season gets underway this evening, with Mayo opening their NFL Division One campaign against Westmeath in the Connacht GAA Air Dome. Throw-in at the Dome is 7pm. We named our team for this evening’s match last night. Here it is: Mayo (LGFA NFL Division One v Westmeath, 12/2/2022): Aisling Tarpey (Foxrock Cabinteely); Éilis Ronayne (Davitts), Sherin El […]

Kilmeena are the kings of Junior football

While those of us at Clones were focused first and foremost on the match being played out in front of our eyes at St Tiernach’s Park, there was plenty of interest too in what was happening down at Croke Park. Updates were being shouted over and back amongst us in the Mayo fraternity in the stand and plenty in the […]

Game day – this one’s a tough test

The lads head north today for our Round 2 outing in this year’s League campaign. Monaghan provide the opposition in this one, with throw-in at St Tiernach’s Park in Clones set for 2pm. Tyrone’s Seán Hurson is the ref for it. The match isn’t on television nor is it being streamed so if you don’t plan to be in Clones […]

Our week on Patreon – a podcast a day

It’s been another podcast-filled week for our club members on Patreon and, for those of you who haven’t taken the plunge yet, it’s worth letting you know what we’ve been up to over the last few days. In short, it’s been a case of a podcast a day. Starting on match day at Markievicz Park last Sunday, we had a […]

Logjam of Mayo-related matches on Sunday

It’s frequent enough that the attention of supporters can be divided across different games on the same day. This coming Sunday, however, Mayo fans will have their eyes on four separate locations, with teams from the county in action in games contested across three provinces, two of which are All-Ireland deciders. You can slice and dice the four games in […]

Mayo 0-11 Donegal 0-11: Robbie digs us out at the death

At half-time in this afternoon’s opening round National League match against Donegal, we looked to be in bother. When we were reduced to fourteen men with twenty minutes to go, with Donegal awarded a penalty, it looked like curtains for us. But then we did that most Mayo of things and came roaring back to claim a dramatic last-gasp draw. […]

Game day – we’re off again

This is it – the start of another inter-county season. Markievicz Park is our home away from home today for our return to Division One of the National Football League, where, at 1.45pm this afternoon, we lock horns with Donegal. Cavan’s Noel Mooney is the ref and the match is live on TG4 with radio commentary on Midwest. I don’t, […]

Patreon club – the first two weeks

It’s now exactly two weeks on from when we got club membership for the podcast up and running on Patreon. It’s been a rather hectic fortnight for us, during which we’ve put a significant amount of bonus content online and sorted out other issues relating to the service too. We’ve been blown away by the number of people who have […]
