Build-up to Kerry game continues

We’re only two sleeps out now from the Kerry game but, after this yawning six-week gap since the Roscommon match, time seems to be dragging by so slowly. It doesn’t help, I guess, that the build-up has been as low key as it has ahead of what’s set to be the biggest clash so far in this year’s Championship. The […]

It was a gloriously sunny evening at Páirc Seán MacDiarmada in Carrick-on-Shannon, perfect conditions for this Connacht MFC Round 4 meeting of Mayo and Leitrim. After a well-contested match our lads prevailed over a lively Leitrim outfit on a scoreline of 1-17 to 1-13, a win that guarantees us a semi-final slot where we’ll meet up again with Roscommon. Leitrim […]

Minors edged out in entertaining encounter

On a sunwashed late spring evening at Hastings Insurance MacHale Park, the U17s of Mayo and Galway served up a cracking contest in this year’s Connacht MFC. Both sides enjoyed periods of dominance in tonight’s game and coming down the home stretch a draw looked perhaps the likeliest outcome.

Minors make strong start

As Nigel Reape put it so aptly on the Mayo Football Podcast Final Whistle show after Mayo’s 2-17 to 0-11 win over Roscommon in this evening’s Connacht MFC Round 1 meeting at Hyde Park, the Minors tonight provided us with a good end to what’s been a bad footballing week for the county. They certainly did that, with a forceful, […]
