The weekend’s matches

Friday has rolled around once again and this weekend there are three Mayo matches – including a real biggie – taking place. Two of these are on tomorrow and the other one is on Sunday. First up tomorrow are the Mayo Masters. The greybeards (I’m allowed to use that term seeing as I currently sport one of those myself) take […]

Five and a half thousand people present in MacHale Park last Saturday while just over twelve thousand watched the final from the comforts of their own home courtesy of Mayo company Local Streaming.
