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 […]

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. If we were involved, we would, of course, have been fully focused […]

Checking in on Cork

Right, it’s time to begin the countdown to the Cork game. We’re playing them this coming Sunday at the Gaelic Grounds in Limerick in what’s an All-Ireland SFC group stage Round 3 clash. Down’s Paul Faloon is the ref and the match throws in at 2pm. It’ll be streamed live on GAAGO. Our task next Sunday is a straightforward one […]

Voices you’ll hear on this episode, in which we showcase some […]

Aidan O’Shea is our MOTM from yesterday’s game

Right, the votes are in and counted and the result is a clear one. With 27% support in the poll, you’ve selected Aidan O’Shea as our Man of the Match from yesterday’s victory over Kerry in Killarney. The Breaffy clubman also collected the MOTM award on GAAGO yesterday. Aidan’s clubmate Matthew Ruane also saw his huge shift yesterday acknowledged in […]

Sunday match reports

I’m still in the Kingdom with a drive back to the capital to do soon after what has been a short but extremely satisfactory stay here. I think satisfaction, rather than any outpouring of euphoria, is the dominant emotion for Mayo supporters this morning after what was a fine day’s work by the lads at Fitzgerald Stadium yesterday. It was […]

Kerry 0-17 Mayo 1-19: there’s air in the balloon now

Back in 2019, the only previous time when Mayo played Kerry in the Championship at Fitzgerald Stadium, the day felt like a huge occasion. The place was packed, there was a big Mayo crowd there and while we were no match for the home team, it felt as if we’d all been part of a big GAA summer day. Today […]
