Roscommon 0-13 Mayo 1-15: strong in the sun

After what has felt like a decade of rain and wind, a rare summer-like day provided the background to this spring afternoon at Dr. Hyde Park. In the suffocating heat it was Mayo who managed the conditions better, surging clear of hosts Roscommon after the break to win by five points. We opted for the terrace and so had the […]

Monday match reports

It’s a New York Monday morning and, truth be told, my head hurts ever so slightly. It’s not the time now to reminisce about all that’s been good about this trip – there’s been lots and there’ll be time for that over the next few days – so let’s stick with the usual agenda. Here’s what’s online about yesterday’s win […]

New York 2-6 Mayo 2-21: Exiles go down fighting

We won, as everyone expected us in advance to do. The manner of the win will, though, do more to please a battling New York side than it will the visiting Mayo team.

Right, with our Connacht Championship opener against New York now fast approaching, it’s time to bring the shutters down on the poll for our Player of this year’s National League. The vote was a closely-fought one, between Ryan O’Donoghue, our leading scorer in the campaign, and Fergal Boland, who notched most scores from play over the course of the seven […]

Who was our Player of the League for 2024?

With today’s formal launch at Bekan of the Connacht Championship and with our trip to the Big Apple for our provincial quarter-final against New York at Gaelic Park coming up next week, our National League campaign of 2024 is already disappearing rapidly in the rearview mirror. Before it’s gone altogether, though, there’s one bit of business to conclude here on […]

Matthew Ruane is our MOTM from yesterday’s game

Our final MOTM poll of this year’s National League campaign is done and it has produced a decisive result. By a large margin, you’ve voted Matthew Ruane to be our MOTM from yesterday’s Round 7 clash with Monaghan at St Tiernach’s Park. Weighing in with 1-2 from play in what was a commanding midfield performance – his goal on 65 […]
