Mayo GAA news, views and over a century of results

Last week on the podcast – Mayo Football Podcast 2023 E19

As we move on from the 2023 inter-county season for the Mayo men’s team, we’ve switched our focus on the Mayo Football Podcast to other issues.  In this regular review show we highlight extracts from recent podcast episodes made available to club members and this week we’ve got audio from Edwin McGreal and Austin O’Malley as well as a number of […]

Sunday match reports

The debate here on the blog over the past 24 hours has, somewhat oddly, been focused on a match the county wasn’t involved in at all yesterday, with the one we did play generating very little interest in comparison. Time to redress that balance, then, by looking at the coverage of Mayo’s dramatic win over Galway in yesterday’s LGFA All-Ireland […]

Ladies snatch dramatic win at the death

The Mayo ladies are once again through to the All-Ireland semi-final. They triumphed by the minimum margin in dramatic fashion over Galway in today’s LGFA All-Ireland quarter-final, with Shauna Howley fisting over the winning score into the wind at Pearse Stadium just seconds before the final hooter sounded, as Mayo snatched the win by 0-10 to 1-6. It was no […]

Match day panel named for Galway game

We’ve named our match day panel for tomorrow’s LGFA All-Ireland SFC quarter-final against Galway at Pearse Stadium (throw-in 1.30pm). It’s a big panel too, running to thirty players.

LGFA Championship knockout tie on Saturday

The men’s inter-county year is over but the women are still standing, with the LGFA Senior football Championship now at the All-Ireland quarter-final stage. This means it’s knockout football from here on and on Saturday we’re up against Galway at Pearse Stadium (throw-in 1.30pm) in an all-or-nothing tie, with a place in the final four up for grabs. The two […]

LGFA All-Ireland quarter-final fixed for Saturday week

The men’s Championship run may be over for the year but for the women it’s all still to play for, as the LGFA Championship reaches the knockout stage. Finishing second in their group meant that Michael Moyles’ team would face an away quarter-final and on Sunday they were drawn to face Galway. The teams have, of course, already met this […]

Monday match reports

It’s always nice to wake up on the morning after a win over the neighbours and to think back on what happened the day before. Yes, we won. Yes, we knocked them out of the Championship: that’s the fourth time we’ve done this since 2019. Yes, we’re in the hat for this morning’s All-Ireland quarter-final draw. It’s all a bit […]

Galway 0-12 Mayo 1-10: we come out on top in game of two halves

The stereotypical Mayo/Galway game is one that goes right down to the wire, the match won or lost by a single kick of the ball. In that respect, today’s tense but enthralling All-Ireland SFC preliminary quarter-final was true to type. At half-time, while we weren’t completely out of it, we were in major bother. Our kickout strategy in tatters, utterly […]
