Lee Keegan is our MOTM from yesterday’s game

Another all-or-nothing Championship match and yet another totemic Lee Keegan performance. In truth, Lee has been in cracking form all year but over the last two weekends, in knockout Championship ties, he’s been truly exceptional. Yesterday, when we were flailing badly, he was the man to steady us, defending resolutely, driving us forward and clipping over two badly needed scores. […]

Another day, another win over Kildare. Unlike the Senior team at Croke Park yesterday, Mayo’s U17s were in control of this afternoon’s All-Ireland quarter-final against Kildare at O’Connor Park for much of the game. Indeed, they looked to be easing to a comfortable double-digit victory when their opponents took a leaf out of our book from yesterday, by throwing caution […]

Sunday match reports

The weekend’s matches

Right, another weekend is fast approaching and with it three more matches involving Mayo teams. Here are the details on them in the order they’ll be played. First up on this occasion are the county’s women footballers whose Championship campaign resumes on Saturday. The LGFA Championship is now at the group stage and our first match is against Tipperary. The […]
