Dublin’s double wraps up the inter-county year

Two weeks after Dublin’s men reclaimed the Sam Maguire, the county’s women footballers today did the LGFA equivalent by winning back the Brendan Martin Cup. They were full value for their All-Ireland win this afternoon, their sixth one ever in what was the 50th LGFA national final, as they saw off Kerry by 0-18 to 1-10 in front of a […]

The final four

We know all about the heady mixture of excitement and nervousness that comes with being one of the final four in the Championship but this year, for the second season in a row and for only the third time since 2010, the All-Ireland SFC semi-finals don’t feature us.

Ryan O’Donoghue is our MOTM from yesterday’s game

The overall Man of the Match from yesterday’s All-Ireland SFC quarter-final meeting with Dublin, Colm Basquel, has strong Mayo connections but this MOTM poll was, of course, restricted to players who lined out at Croke Park yesterday in the Green and Red. As ever on days when things don’t got right for us, the purpose of the poll is to […]

Dublin 2-17 Mayo 0-11: shocking second half collapse

At half-time in today’s All-Ireland quarter-final, we were well in the game.

We’d even had a goal disallowed ourselves, which I’m told TV replays confirmed was the right decision. By the end […]
