Meath second half surge is decisive

Mayo battled hard against Meath in this afternoon’s LGFA NFL semi-final at St Tiernach’s Park in Clones but ultimately they were undone by the Royals’ second half surge. A very strong third quarter from the All-Ireland champions saw them wipe out a three-point half-time deficit, hitting 2-5 without reply to seize control of the game and they won by six […]

Game day – chance to get back to winning ways

We’re back in National League action this evening, this time up in Healy Park where we take on All-Ireland champions Tyrone. Throw-in at Omagh is 5.45pm, the match is live on RTÉ2 and Maurice Deegan is the ref. It would be tempting to see this as a rematch of last September’s All-Ireland final but we all know it’s no such […]

Next weekend’s matches

Right, time to box away the cold and the wet and the wind and the loss to Kerry last weekend and shift the focus instead to what’s on this coming weekend. There’s a raft of matches involving the county on then, including an All-Ireland final. Chronological order makes most sense in listing these games so let’s start with Saturday. First […]

Camogie, LGFA fixtures this weekend

The big match down in Tralee on Saturday evening isn’t the only Mayo game on this weekend. In fact, there here are two camogie matches involving the county being contested over the coming weekend, as well as an LGFA one. Starting with camogie, the Juniors are in League action against Wicklow where they’ll be aiming for two wins from two […]

The Donegal/Dublin game throws in at 1pm that afternoon, with the Mayo match against Meath getting underway at 3pm. Both semi-finals will be shown live on […]

Ladies lead the way, hurlers lose again

Just the two Mayo matches today, with a win for the women footballers, while the hurlers lost again. In the LGFA game, victory over Donegal was secured at the Connacht GAA Centre of Excellence largely on the back of a strong first half. Playing with the wind, we kept the visitors scoreless for 24 minutes of the opening half, in […]
