Sunday match reports

Do I have to do this – really? On mornings like this one, I do wonder what’s the point. Habit, I guess. So, then, here goes – here’s the grisly online coverage of our penalty shootout Championship exit last night. Locals: Mayo News, Connaught Telegraph, Western People, Derry Journal, Derry Now. Nationals: Irish Examiner, Irish Times, Irish Independent, Irish Mirror, […]

Mayo 1-12 Derry 0-15 (after extra-time, Derry win 4-3 on penalties): we’re out on a shoot-out

Well, this is what jeopardy looks like. After last weekend’s high octane draw with Dublin we failed to back that performance up against Derry tonight at Hastings Insurance MacHale Park. For all that, we had victory in our grasp as the final seconds of normal time ticked down but once again we let a winning position slip. We then managed […]

Monday match reports

Well, I picked a good one to miss, didn’t I? I saw most of yesterday’s pulsating Championship encounter with Dublin on TV – by the look of the sea of blue in the shots of the crowd, I was far from the only Mayo supporter following the action in that way – but this contest was surely one best experienced, […]

Mayo 0-17 Dublin 0-17: Mayo draw cold comfort

Almost. Mayo almost pulled off the shock of the season. With time running out, Ryan O’Donoghue kicked Mayo in front with a ballsy free from the right wing.  There was time for one more play though and Dublin showed why they are All-Ireland champions. Ciarán Kilkenny soared to pluck Stephen Cluxton’s kick-out from the skies. He fed Jack McCaffrey who […]

Ladies cruise to win over Kildare

The Mayo ladies got their Championship campaign back on track this afternoon with a comfortable win over Kildare at James Stephens Park in Ballina. After a strong start, the home side went in at the break twelve points in front and they ran out winners by an extremely comfortable margin of sixteen points. A win today was pretty much a […]

Ladies lose out to Dublin

The Mayo ladies footballers lost out to Dublin in this afternoon’s All-Ireland SFC Group Stage Round 1 clash at Parnell Park. With three points between the sides at the break, Dublin pulled away in the second half to win decisively by 1-10 to 0-5. The essential difference between the teams was that Dublin had far more ability to take their […]

Sunday match reports

It’s a sunny and bright bank holiday weekend Sunday morning, we won yesterday so let’s have a very quick review of what’s online about yesterday’s two-point victory over Roscommon. Locals: Mayo News, Connaught Telegraph, Western People, Midwest Radio, Roscommon Herald, Roscommon People, Shannonside.

Roscommon 1-15 Mayo 2-14: job done, just about

Mayo this evening got their second win over Roscommon in this year’s Championship in five weeks. It was less decisive than the five-point victory we enjoyed over them at Dr Hyde Park in April but today’s win at the same venue was more consequential, as we’re now guaranteed, at worst, a home All-Ireland preliminary quarter-final berth, with a shot at […]
