This weekend’s matches

It’s Wednesday night already, with another weekend barrelling in our direction. While it’s still a few weeks before the Senior team are back in action, there are a few games on this coming weekend involving Mayo teams that are worth shining a light on. Taking them in the order they’re set to be played, the first one occurs on Friday […]

Mayo 0-10 Roscommon 2-8: League winning hoodoo hits again

We can reach for all number of excuses. The seven-day turnaround from last Sunday’s League final, the shocking refereeing performance of Noel Mooney, the long-standing hex Roscommon have over us when we win the League, but, you know, none of those factors sufficiently explain why we lost to Roscommon today. We were flat from first to last in this match, […]

A re-look at the Rossies

It’s scarcely believable but this Sunday – Easter Sunday, no less – the lads take the field for their opening match in this year’s Championship. Roscommon provide the opposition in what’s a Connacht SFC quarter-final tie. The match throws in at Hastings Insurance MacHale Park at 4pm, Noel Mooney of Cavan is the ref and it’s being shown live on […]

Rochy’s rallying call for Sunday

Mayo Football Podcast club members on Patreon will, no doubt, have already heard Mike Finnerty’s interview with Stephen Rochford after the county’s National League final win over Galway at Croke Park on Sunday. As well as reflecting on the win, Mayo’s Assistant Manager looked ahead to next Sunday’s Connacht SFC quarter-final clash with Roscommon, a match that takes place back […]

Mayo 0-14 Monaghan 2-14: McManus engineers another great Farney escape

Well, that’s our unbeaten run gone. The supporting cast put in an understandably disjointed display this afternoon against a hugely motivated Monaghan team, for whom the wily Conor McManus up front ran the show. With Armagh losing at Tyrone, the visitors sensed another great escape in the offing and they finished strongly to claim a deserved six-points win and, with […]

The weekend’s matches

Later than usual on this occasion, it’s time to confirm details of the matches involving teams from the county that are taking place this coming weekend. There are two such games this time, both in football and both of which take place on Sunday afternoon. One’s at home and the other one is away, one of them involves the men’s […]

The weekend’s matches

Right, it’s approaching midweek so time to think about the matches involving the county that are on this coming weekend. There are four such matches, two on Saturday and the other two on Sunday. In camogie, we’ve a Camogie League Division 3A match against Kildare. That’s a home game, which has been fixed for Adrian Freeman Park in Tooreen where […]

Sunday match reports

Last night was, thanks to Ryan’s outrageous score at the finish, one of the good nights at MacHale Park. His late, late point into the bacon factory end ensured we avoided defeat to Galway in League or Championship at the venue for the first time since the 2014 Connacht final. That stat alone makes it a positive start to the […]

Mayo 1-11 Galway 2-8: Ryan rescues precious point

A draw can feel like a loss or it can feel like a win. When Ryan O’Donoghue launched a screamer into the night sky at the Galway posts deep in stoppage time tonight, the enormous roar that went around MacHale Park showed what the home fans felt about the result the Belmullet man had pulled from the fire for us. […]

Game day – another new beginning

After seven months waiting, we have at last a Mayo match to look forward to later on today. MacHale Park is the venue for our opening round game in Division One of this year’s National League, Galway provide the opposition and Cavan’s Joe McQuillan is the ref. Throw-in under the lights is 7.30pm and the match is being shown live […]
