Mayo 0-14 Louth 1-10: narrow win in stifling conditions

Kevin McStay was at pains to point out before and after the Kerry game that the two points on offer down in Killarney would also be on offer for us against Louth and Cork. Our one-point win over the Wee County this afternoon – the first time we’ve beaten them at Castlebar – got us the two points from this […]

Aidan O’Shea is our MOTM from yesterday’s game

Right, the votes are in and counted and the result is a clear one. With 27% support in the poll, you’ve selected Aidan O’Shea as our Man of the Match from yesterday’s victory over Kerry in Killarney. The Breaffy clubman also collected the MOTM award on GAAGO yesterday. Aidan’s clubmate Matthew Ruane also saw his huge shift yesterday acknowledged in […]

Sunday match reports

I’m still in the Kingdom with a drive back to the capital to do soon after what has been a short but extremely satisfactory stay here. I think satisfaction, rather than any outpouring of euphoria, is the dominant emotion for Mayo supporters this morning after what was a fine day’s work by the lads at Fitzgerald Stadium yesterday. It was […]

Kerry 0-17 Mayo 1-19: there’s air in the balloon now

Back in 2019, the only previous time when Mayo played Kerry in the Championship at Fitzgerald Stadium, the day felt like a huge occasion. The place was packed, there was a big Mayo crowd there and while we were no match for the home team, it felt as if we’d all been part of a big GAA summer day. Today […]

Diarmuid O’Connor is our MOTM from yesterday’s game

Right, the votes are in and the result is a clear one. Roscommon’s Enda Smith was, of course, the main man in yesterday’s game but the player from our ranks that you’ve voted as our MOTM is Diarmuid O’Connor. The Ballintubber player tops the poll with 21% of the vote. Diarmuid battled manfully all day yesterday and it certainly wasn’t […]

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, […]

Monday match reports

You know that scene at the end of the first Indiana Jones film where they crate up whatever it is they’re crating up and deposit it somewhere in the midst of loads of other crates in an enormous military hanger, never to be seen again? That’s what we have to do now with everything related to yesterday’s National League final […]

Mayo 0-14 Galway 0-11: strong finish seals 13th League title

We’re the National League champions once again. Our three-point win over Galway at Croke Park this afternoon saw us claim NFL honours for the second time in five seasons and for the thirteenth time in all. It was a deserved win too in what was in large part a rather muted contest, in which both sides tended to pull their […]
