The Breffni brief

We’re back in Championship action this coming weekend as the All-Ireland SFC Group Stage gets underway. Our Round 1 match in Group 2 is against Cavan on Saturday evening at Hastings Insurance MacHale Park, where throw-in is 5pm, with Meath’s David Coldrick reffing it. For the first time in a long while for a Championship match involving us, there’s no […]

A few NFL stats

Photo: MichaelMaye.com I’m still mopping up here after the conclusion of this year’s National Football League, this time to sort a few stats about who played for us in the campaign, who scored what and that kind of thing. Similar pieces I’ve done on this in previous years are here – 2016, 2017. Let’s start with details on who started, […]

Another date with Dublin

Image: @MayoGAA Saturday night is fast approaching and, with it, yet another joust for us with Dublin. Throw-in for the match in MacHale Park is 7pm that evening and the ref is Roscommon’s Paddy Neilan. The ladies’ Division One League match is on beforehand, that one throws in at 5pm. I usually find this previewing-the-opposition post good for refreshing my […]

Tribesmen test up next for us

The Farney file

It’s Monaghan we’re up against first and we play them at St Tiernach’s Park in Clones on Sunday where throw-in is set for 2pm. Meath’s David Gough is the man with the whistle for this one. We played […]

The results for 2017 have now been placed alongside the 115 years already there, the matches played this year now forming part of the rich tapestry that is the story of inter-county football in Mayo. 2017 saw twenty matches […]

Red and black for Sunday

Photo: MichaelMaye.com It was announced by Elvery’s this evening that, as expected, the lads will sport the current away strip in Sunday’s All-Ireland semi-final against Kerry at Croke Park (throw-in 3.30pm). It’s an attire that was unveiled in the League game against the same opposition down in Tralee in February this year. That match remains the only occasion in which […]
