Monday match reports

I’m not long back in the jurisdiction after en enjoyable few days away and so it’s only now that I’m getting to the online coverage of the two games involving the county yesterday. Better late than never, I guess. Here’s what’s online about the win over Monaghan at Clones yesterday: Locals: Mayo News, Western People, Midwest Radio, Northern Sound. Nationals: […]

McLaughlin double downs the Deise

Like the men, the county’s women footballers today ended their National League campaign with a win. Liam McHale’s charges closed out what was an encouraging set of Division One matches this afternoon with a 2-9 to 2-6 win over Waterford at James Stephens Park. Key to today’s victory came in the form of two Fionnuala McLaughlin goals. The first was […]

Game day – nothing on the line in this one

Our National League campaign for 2024 concludes this afternoon up in Clones. Our opponents this afternoon, Monaghan, are already relegated and we’re safe both from the drop and the inconvenience of having to contest the Division One decider. That means that this match is, in essence, a dead-rubber. Neither side gains or loses anything in relation to the League from […]

Another narrow defeat for county’s women footballers

The county’s women footballers fell to their third defeat in a row in this year’s National League and today’s one was another frustrating narrow loss. Trailing by seven points to Waterford early in the second half at Dungarvan this afternoon, we came roaring back into it but the home team held out to win by two points, on a scoreline […]

Teams named to play Armagh and Waterford

I got caught on the hop a bit there but a short while ago we named our starting fifteen to play Armagh up at the Athletic Grounds on Sunday (throw-in 3.30pm). It’s the same fifteen who started last Saturday night against Galway and, for the record, here is the team: Mayo (NFL Division One v Armagh 5/2/2023): Colm Reape (Knockmore); […]

Ticketing details for this weekend’s matches

This is just a quick one to provide some details on tickets for this weekend’s three Mayo matches. Let’s start this time with the big one, the men’s NFL Division One clash against Armagh at the Athletic Grounds on Sunday (throw-in 3.30pm). Mayo GAA cautioned earlier today that tickets need to be bought now to avoid disappointment, adding that, due […]

We’ve a Bank Holiday weekend to look forward to in a few days time – the new St Brigid’s one – and we’ve got three Mayo matches to keep an eye on this weekend too. The county’s hurlers are in action first. Having suffered relegation last year, they’re now operating in Division 3A of the National Hurling League, a level […]
