Last week on the podcast – Mayo Football Podcast 2023 E13

It’s been another busy week on the Mayo Football Podcast, where club members have again had access to loads of new audio content, both leading up to and after the match against Kerry in Killarney on Saturday, while we also kept tabs on the Minors’ progress on Friday evening. Voices you’ll hear on this episode, in which we showcase some […]

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 […]

Minors dig it out at the death

We’ve had bright sunshine for the last few Minor matches but this evening in Castlebar it was dull, overcast and a bit on the cool side. Out on the pitch, though, in particular in what proved to be a rip-roaring second half, it was positively sizzling. After what had been a cagey enough opening half, this contest exploded into action […]

LIVE: Mayo v Roscommon, Connacht MFC semi-final

Here, courtesy of TG4 via YouTube, is the live stream of this evening’s Connacht MFC semi-final between Mayo and Roscommon. The match throws in this evening at Hastings Insurance MacHale Park at 7pm. I’ll have a match report here on the blog afterwards and we’ll have a Mayo Football Podcast Final Whistle show up on Patreon later on as well. […]

This weekend’s matches

The sole focus this coming weekend for most people is, understandably, the big match against Kerry in Killarney on Saturday. It’s not, though, the only game involving the county that’s on this coming weekend. Here’s your essential info on the three matches that are taking place in which Mayo are involved. As usual, it’s the Minors who are up first. […]

The weekend’s football action

The provincial skirmishes in this year’s all-changed-changed-utterly Championship continued this weekend, clarifying a few things in the process. This year’s likely Connacht champions for starters. Plus the moribund nature of the Leinster and Munster Championships. There was a there-but-for-the-grace-of-God moment, with Colm O’Rourke’s Meath, who have consistently punched below their weight for a generation at this stage, finding themselves in […]

Minors make strong start

As Nigel Reape put it so aptly on the Mayo Football Podcast Final Whistle show after Mayo’s 2-17 to 0-11 win over Roscommon in this evening’s Connacht MFC Round 1 meeting at Hyde Park, the Minors tonight provided us with a good end to what’s been a bad footballing week for the county. They certainly did that, with a forceful, […]

Minor match details for this evening’s provincial opener

The county’s U17s are in Championship action this evening, with Round 1 of the Connacht MFC round-robin stage seeing them take on Roscommon. The game throws in at Dr Hyde Park this evening at 6.30pm. If you’re planning on going to the game, then you’ll need to sort your tickets in advance. The link for purchasing tickets online is here. […]

This week on the podcast – Mayo Football Podcast 2023 E10

Every week on the Mayo Football Podcast, we make plenty of audio content available to our loyal club members on Patreon. We thought it would be a good idea to give everyone else a taster of this content and so we’re launching a new series on the podcast, providing snippets of audio from our Patreon pods. Rob Murphy and I […]

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 […]
