Mayo 0-20 Cavan 1-8: easy on a sunny evening

We’re back on the horse. After the disappointment of the Connacht final a fortnight ago, we needed, at a minimum, a win today against Cavan at Hastings Insurance MacHale Park. We got that, easing to a nine-point victory over poorer than expected opposition in a match played in glorious summer evening sunshine in front of around 9,000 punters. We made […]

Matthew Ruane is our MOTM from yesterday’s game

We didn’t get the result we were looking for at Pearse Stadium, coming up short by a single agonising point, in a game in which we’d led for long stretches. Naturally, the post-game narrative is all about the negatives but that air-brushes out the positive aspects of our display yesterday. One of those good points was the performance of Matthew […]

Monday match reports

It’s Monday, there was rain up here in the capital early this morning and I’ve got this less than pleasant task to get through. Okay, let’s get it over as quickly and painlessly as possible – here’s what’s online about our one-point Connacht final loss yesterday. Locals: Mayo News, Western People, Connaught Telegraph, Midwest Radio, Galway Bay FM (includes audio […]

Galway 0-16 Mayo 0-15: Tribesmen edge it in frantic finish

When Tommy Conroy fisted the ball over the bar with two minutes of normal time left it looked as if we were on our way to victory. We should have been too but we failed to seal the deal from there, with Galway converting three frees in injury time to snatch the win by a single point. The home celebrations […]

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. Twelve points ahead at the break, it looked like we’d easily double that margin in the second half. Instead, New York hit us for two goals that […]
