August is a wicked month – Mayo News Football Podcast 2022 E31

August used to be the month when the serious stuff happened at inter-county level but this year, with the split season in force, the inter-county year is already over. As a result, August is given over to chat about the forthcoming club Championships and, of course, the appointment process for the vacant position of Mayo manager. In this episode of […]

Goals decisive as Kerry advance to the final

Goals definitely do win games. Kerry got four of them in this afternoon’s LGFA All-Ireland SFC semi-final and we didn’t get any. We may only have ended up scoring once less than they did over the course of the game but they still won with a lot to spare, nine points to be precise, on a scoreline of 4-10 to […]

A place in the final beckons

It’s a truly glorious morning weather-wise up here in the capital and for Mayo’s women footballers a glorious opportunity awaits at Croke Park this afternoon. Their LGFA All-Ireland SFC semi-final against Kerry throws in at 2pm with the winners playing either defending champions Meath or Donegal in the decider in a fortnight’s time. Expectations for this Mayo team weren’t all […]

Unchanged team to play Kerry in semi-final

The Mayo team to play Kerry in tomorrow’s LGFA All-Ireland Senior football semi-final was named last night. It’s the same fifteen who lined out in last weekend’s quarter-final win over Cork and is as follows: Mayo (LGFA All-Ireland semi-final v Kerry, 16/7/2022): Aisling Tarpey (Foxrock/Cabinteely); Éilis Ronayne (Davitts), Róisín Flynn (Knockmore), Danielle (Castlebar Mitchels); Tamara O’Connor (Cill Chomain), Fiona McHale […]

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 […]

LGFA All-Ireland semi-final fixed for 2pm on Saturday

It’s next stop Croke Park for the county’s women footballers in a Championship campaign that’s now down to the final four. Having disposed of Cork in the quarters at the weekend and with Dublin falling by the wayside at the same juncture too, it’s a competition that has opened up nicely, even if defending champions Meath are now strong favourites […]

Sunday match reports

I’m off down the road to Croke Park in a bit – and what a day for football it is too – but first it’s only right to do a quick post providing links to the games involving us played this weekend. Friday evening’s All-Ireland Minor defeat was as disappointing to us as it was thrilling for Galway, the neighbours’ […]

LGFA semi-finals confirmed for Croke Park next Saturday

I’d thought I was done with Croke Park this year but as it happens I’m off to HQ tomorrow for the Dublin/Kerry All-Ireland semi-final and it now looks like I’ll be back there next Saturday too, as the LGFA All-Ireland SFC semi-finals are being played there as a double-header. As this tweet appears to confirm, it’s defending champions Meath against […]
