Sunday match reports

The debate here on the blog over the past 24 hours has, somewhat oddly, been focused on a match the county wasn’t involved in at all yesterday, with the one we did play generating very little interest in comparison. Time to redress that balance, then, by looking at the coverage of Mayo’s dramatic win over Galway in yesterday’s LGFA All-Ireland […]

Ladies snatch dramatic win at the death

The Mayo ladies are once again through to the All-Ireland semi-final. They triumphed by the minimum margin in dramatic fashion over Galway in today’s LGFA All-Ireland quarter-final, with Shauna Howley fisting over the winning score into the wind at Pearse Stadium just seconds before the final hooter sounded, as Mayo snatched the win by 0-10 to 1-6.
