Hurlers relegated

The county’s hurlers have endured a torrid time in this year’s National Hurling League and their misery was capped this afternoon when they were beaten by Wicklow in the Division 2B relegation play-off. The Garden County won today’s match at O’Connor Park in Tullamore by 0-16 to 0-15 and so it’s us who drop down to Division 3A for next […]

Next weekend’s matches

Right, time to box away the cold and the wet and the wind and the loss to Kerry last weekend and shift the focus instead to what’s on this coming weekend. There’s a raft of matches involving the county on then, including an All-Ireland final. Chronological order makes most sense in listing these games so let’s start with Saturday. First […]

Ladies lead the way, hurlers lose again

Just the two Mayo matches today, with a win for the women footballers, while the hurlers lost again. In the LGFA game, victory over Donegal was secured at the Connacht GAA Centre of Excellence largely on the back of a strong first half. Playing with the wind, we kept the visitors scoreless for 24 minutes of the opening half, in […]

Let’s start with the women footballers. They’ve made a great start to their League campaign this spring and, with two wins from two outings, they’re already guaranteed of a place […]
