LGFA and Minor fixtures confirmed

In the LGFA Championship we’re […]

Mighty Minors claim Connacht crown

Mayo this evening claimed back-to-back Connacht Minor titles when a storming second half in Tuam saw them defeat Galway by six points. Galway had led by a point at the break but the Mayo lads won by 2-13 to 1-10 at the end of what was a highly entertaining U17 contest. The match got underway in bright evening sunshine, so […]

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 […]

Much-changed Minors dig out draw

With next Friday’s all-or-nothing Connacht MFC semi-final against Roscommon facing Mayo, the opportunity was understandably taken in tonight’s Round 5 match against Sligo to ring the changes in terms of team selection. As a result we took the pitch with a much-changed team, showing fourteen changes from last weekend, but, despite this, the two teams served up an entertaining contest, […]
