New York on the map for us next year

The Mayo News has confirmed today (here) that Mayo’s Connacht SFC trip to New York next year is definitely going ahead. Doubts had been cast on the trip some time ago, mainly due to the rocketing costs involved, but the Connacht Council have now confirmed that next year’s fixture will go ahead as planned at Gaelic Park. No date has […]

Camogie defeat but win for U17 hurlers

It was one win and one loss from the two matches involving Mayo teams today. The defeat came in the Camogie League Division 4 final, in which we lost out to Tyrone by 0-18 to 2-9.

Most of the Mayo supporters who made their way across the Atlantic for last weekend’s Connacht championship opener against New York have now arrived back home. They’ve taken with them memories of an enormously enjoyable weekend in the Big Apple, where the county’s presence there was felt right across the city. In this latest episode of the Mayo News football […]

Evan Regan our MOTM from yesterday’s game

Yesterday’s Connacht Championship opener against New York descended into something more akin to a training session well before half-time. By then all of our starting forwards – as well as the entire half-back line – had got their names on the scoresheet, with Evan Regan leading the charge in that respect.

New York review – Mayo News football podcast 2019 E17

The Mayo fans who descended on Gaelic Park in their thousands yesterday may not have been able to dodge the rain but James Horan’s team made short work of avoiding any threat of a shock result in their Connacht championship quarter-final tie against New York. Mayo cantered to a 21-point win in the Bronx and the Mayo News football podcast […]
