National League fixtures for next year

Provisional fixtures for next year’s National League have been provided to counties, with details reported in the media today. Colm Keys in today’s Irish Independent has a piece on this (here), which fills in some of the detail on our forthcoming Division One campaign. Having played all seven League matches away from home last year while the pitch redevelopment works […]

The weekend’s results

This is just a quick one, to provide an update on Mayo-related matches that took place over the weekend. Let’s start with Rounders, which was the main focus for the weekend. There were three matches of interest, two involving Breaffy, all three of them All-Ireland semi-finals. Breaffy’s Ladies team yesterday won their All-Ireland semi-final. They beat Dublin’s Limekiln by 26-12 […]

LGFA semi-finals confirmed for Croke Park next Saturday

I’d thought I was done with Croke Park this year but as it happens I’m off to HQ tomorrow for the Dublin/Kerry All-Ireland semi-final and it now looks like I’ll be back there next Saturday too, as the LGFA All-Ireland SFC semi-finals are being played there as a double-header. As this tweet appears to confirm, it’s defending champions Meath against […]

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 […]
