Monday match reports

Well, that’s it for another year at Senior level, as we exited tamely from the Championship yesterday to Kerry at the quarter-final stage. It’s not all doom and gloom, of course, as the Minors have an All-Ireland final to look forward to in two weeks time and the women are still in it too. Here’s what’s online about the weekend’s […]

Ladies lose to Dublin

Both Mayo and Dublin were already safely through to this year’s LGFA All-Ireland quarter-finals ahead of their final round group meeting at O’Moore Park in Portlaoise this evening. At stake in this game, though, was victory in Group A, with the winners handed a less taxing assignment in the quarters in two weeks time. Three points in arrears at half-time, […]

The weekend’s matches

Yet another football weekend is careering in our direction, another one in which Mayo has plenty of skin in the game. More than most weekends, in fact. I always used to love All-Ireland quarter-final weekend and I often pitched up at Croke Park both days to see the two sets of double-headers being contested by the final eight in the […]

Kerry match fixed for 4pm at Croke Park on Sunday week

The GAA earlier on today confirmed fixture details for the All-Ireland SFC quarter-finals. The four ties will, as expected, be played as two double-headers the weekend after next. Clare and Derry meet on Saturday 25th June at 3.45pm, followed by Dublin and Cork at 6pm. Both of those games will be broadcast on Sky. Then on Sunday 26th, Galway and […]

Who would you like us to draw in the quarters?

We’re back in the hat in the morning, this time for the All-Ireland quarter-final draw. For the draw, the four provincial champions – Derry, Dublin, Galway and Kerry – will be in one bowl while the four teams to emerge from the qualifiers – ourselves, Cork, Clare and Armagh – will be in the other one. The GAA issued a […]

It’s knockout from here on

It’s been a helter-skelter weekend of provincial final action – and May’s not over yet! – with four impressive champions emerging from each of their respective deciders. Impressive in different ways but all of them will head into the All-Ireland Series feeling pretty okay about themselves. Kerry had their expected stroll in the Munster decider yesterday against Limerick. While Dublin […]

Dublin review, a second look – Mayo News Football Podcast 2022 E7

Saturday evening’s five-point win over Dublin wasn’t just Mayo’s second win in a row over Dessie Farrell’s side, it was also the first time in over fifty years that Mayo had beaten Dublin in a League game played in the capital, as well as the first time ever the Green and Red had come out on top in a regulation […]

Sunday match reports

It was a late enough night for me last night – it was gone ten by the time we’d finished up our podcast yabbering and managed to find an open exit from Croke Park and it was close to midnight by the time I’d the match report done, with a very satisfying re-watch still to do and beers to be […]
