Our week on Patreon – it’s been another busy one

Just another quick update about what we’ve been up to over on Patreon, where club members have again had to cope with a significant amount of podcast content and other stuff coming in their direction. The fun started on Discord on Sunday where we were across the matches at St Tiernach’s Park – where Mike, in effect, had a live […]

Positive injury news a welcome boost

Our mounting injury list of late – capped last week by the season-ending cruciate injury picked up by Tommy Conroy on Sigerson duty for NUIG – has been a growing concern for us in these early weeks of the new inter-county season. James Horan’s upbeat news on player availability ahead of the Dublin game comes, then, as a major relief. […]

In this mid-term review episode of the podcast, Mike chats with Malachy Clerkin of the Irish Times and with former Mayo player and RTE co-commentator Martin Carney about how Mayo’s League campaign is going so far. Malachy outlines why he feels Mayo supporters have plenty to be optimistic about this year while Martin picks out some players who he feels […]

Ryan O’Donoghue is our MOTM from yesterday’s game

Any Mayo supporter leaving St Tiernach’s Park following Mayo’s two-point win over Monaghan wouldn’t have had to be asked twice about who performed best on the team yesterday. That player was Ryan O’Donoghue. It wasn’t just the 1-6 tally he racked up (1-1 of it from play), though that contribution was, of course, key to his team’s success. Dependable from […]

Game day – this one’s a tough test

The lads head north today for our Round 2 outing in this year’s League campaign. Monaghan provide the opposition in this one, with throw-in at St Tiernach’s Park in Clones set for 2pm. Tyrone’s Seán Hurson is the ref for it. The match isn’t on television nor is it being streamed so if you don’t plan to be in Clones […]

Our week on Patreon – a podcast a day

It’s been another podcast-filled week for our club members on Patreon and, for those of you who haven’t taken the plunge yet, it’s worth letting you know what we’ve been up to over the last few days. In short, it’s been a case of a podcast a day. Starting on match day at Markievicz Park last Sunday, we had a […]

Logjam of Mayo-related matches on Sunday

It’s frequent enough that the attention of supporters can be divided across different games on the same day. This coming Sunday, however, Mayo fans will have their eyes on four separate locations, with teams from the county in action in games contested across three provinces, two of which are All-Ireland deciders. You can slice and dice the four games in […]

There’s little time to draw breath either, with the second round of matches on this weekend. In this episode of the Mayo News football podcast, we preview Sunday’s Round 2 meeting of Mayo and Monaghan at Clones. Rob […]
