One step from the final

This year’s LGFA Senior Championship has provided a few shocks on the way to this weekend’s semi-finals. The biggest one is that neither Dublin nor Cork feature in the final four this summer, which means that it’s set to be the first final since 2002 without either of them in it. The semi-finals will be played as a double-header at […]

It’s next stop Croke Park for the county’s women footballers in a Championship campaign that’s now down to the final four.

The novel all-Connacht national decider between ourselves and Galway will throw in that evening at 7.15pm. It definitely makes sense for the […]

The weekend’s matches

Yet another football weekend is careering in our direction, another one in which Mayo has plenty of skin in the game. More than most weekends, in fact. I always used to love All-Ireland quarter-final weekend and I often pitched up at Croke Park both days to see the two sets of double-headers being contested by the final eight in the […]
