The weekend’s matches

The weekend is fast approaching so it’s time for a quick run-down on the matches involving teams from the county that are coming up over the next few days. We may as well start with the big one. That’s the footballers’ Division One Round 4 clash with Tyrone at Healy Park, Omagh, on Saturday evening. Throw-in for this game is […]

Season ticket on sale for next year

The GAA announced today – at last – that sales have opened for season tickets for next year. The GAA’s announcement is here. It’s telling, I reckon, that the statement linked above doesn’t actually lead with news about the season ticket at all but instead focuses on ticket prices for next year’s National League campaign, including prices for various packages […]

122 years now in the results archive

A late November’s day is a good one as any to do a bit of digital gardening and, in that spirit, I’ve now added our results for this year to the archive here on the blog. Including 2023 (here), the results archive, which is also fully searchable, at this stage runs to 122 years. The landing page for the results […]

With last Saturday’s provincial Championship draws and the emergence over the weekend of details of the provisional fixtures for the National Leagues, the shape of what our inter-county fixture list might look like next year is starting to emerge.

New York on the map for us next year

The Mayo News has confirmed today (here) that Mayo’s Connacht SFC trip to New York next year is definitely going ahead. Doubts had been cast on the trip some time ago, mainly due to the rocketing costs involved, but the Connacht Council have now confirmed that next year’s fixture will go ahead as planned at Gaelic Park. No date has […]

Sunday fixture leaves ladies’ game out in the cold

The rationale for fixing our All-Ireland SFC preliminary quarter-final match against Galway for next Sunday appears to have been prompted by the Tribesmen’s All-Ireland SHC meeting with Tipperary on Saturday, a match that’s been confirmed for the Gaelic Grounds at 6.15pm that evening, part of a double-header that also features Clare and Dublin. While that’s fine as it goes – […]

Throw-in will be 2pm and the match will be broadcast live on RTÉ. There’s still no word on […]
