Hurlers off the mark in Christy Ring Cup

After last weekend’s opening round shellacking by Kildare, Mayo’s hurlers travelled to Aughrim more in hope than in confidence this afternoon for their Round 2 meeting with Wicklow in the Christy Ring Cup. The long trip was, though, a worthwhile one as the Westerners came away with an 0-26 to 2-10 win over the Garden County. This year has been […]

Defeats in camogie final and in hurling game

The two matches the county was involved in today ended, sadly, in defeat. Starting with the camogie, the Mayo Minors this afternoon contested the All-Ireland Minor C Championship final against Wicklow. It was a very strong team from the Garden County and they dominated the first half, leading by 3-4 to 0-1 at the break. Wicklow added a fourth goal […]

Game day – chance to get back to winning ways

We’re back in National League action this evening, this time up in Healy Park where we take on All-Ireland champions Tyrone. Throw-in at Omagh is 5.45pm, the match is live on RTÉ2 and Maurice Deegan is the ref. It would be tempting to see this as a rematch of last September’s All-Ireland final but we all know it’s no such […]

Hurling team for Sunday named

The match day panel for Mayo’s NHL Division 2B clash with Donegal at James Stephens Park on Sunday (throw-in 1pm) was named a bit earlier today. Here’s the team and subs we’ve named for this one: Mayo (NHL Divison 2B v Donegal, 20/3/2022): Bobby Douglas (Tooreen); Gary Nolan (Tooreen), David Kenny (Tooreen), Daniel Haune (Tooreen); Stephen Coyne (Tooreen), Keith Higgins […]

Next weekend’s matches

Right, time to box away the cold and the wet and the wind and the loss to Kerry last weekend and shift the focus instead to what’s on this coming weekend. There’s a raft of matches involving the county on then, including an All-Ireland final. Chronological order makes most sense in listing these games so let’s start with Saturday. First […]

Ladies lead the way, hurlers lose again

Just the two Mayo matches today, with a win for the women footballers, while the hurlers lost again. In the LGFA game, victory over Donegal was secured at the Connacht GAA Centre of Excellence largely on the back of a strong first half. Playing with the wind, we kept the visitors scoreless for 24 minutes of the opening half, in […]

LGFA team to play Donegal named

We’ve named our team to play Donegal in Round 3 of the LGFA’s NFL Division 1A on Sunday. The match takes place at the Connacht Centre of Excellence (throw-in 2pm) and here’s the team we’ve named to start in it: Mayo (LGFA NFL Division 1A v Donegal, 6/3/2022): Laura Brennan (Hollymount); Éilis Ronayne (Davitts), Roisín Flynn (Knockmore), Danielle Caldwell (Castlebar […]

The weekend’s matches

The lads aren’t in action this weekend but that doesn’t mean there aren’t Mayo teams to follow this Saturday and Sunday. There are – three of them to be precise. Let’s start with the women footballers. They’ve made a great start to their League campaign this spring and, with two wins from two outings, they’re already guaranteed of a place […]

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 […]
