Both matches played today involving teams from the county ended in defeats, both of them to Ulster opposition.
In camogie, the county’s first round game in Division 3A was away to Armagh and that one finished in favour of the Orchard County on a scoreline of 5-12 to 2-5. The gap between the teams was only three points at the break but the home side eased clear in the second half.
In football, meanwhile, the U20s tasted defeat for the first time in this year’s Leo Murphy Cup when they lost narrowly at Bekan to Donegal this afternoon. Donegal came out on top today by 1-13 to 1-11.
Commiserations to both Mayo teams on their respective losses.
