Happy Mayo Day!

Mayo Day, the hugely successful marketing promotion of the county by Mayo County Council, is now in its tenth year. The celebrations for Mayo Day 2024 – which is on today – are focused on both sides of the Atlantic, featuring events in Belmullet and Chicago.

On this side of the pond, Mayo Day 2024 is teaming up with the Home to Mayo 2024 festival, which forms part of the Belmullet 200 celebrations (further details here). Across the Atlantic (and a bit further beyond) Gaelic Park in Chicago plays host today to an inaugural International Mayo Day flagship event to celebrate the global Mayo diaspora (further details here).

If either Belmullet or Chicago are in your compass today then you might want to go along to either event. Regardless of where you are, though, have a great Mayo Day 2024 and here’s to making it an even greater Mayo weekend tomorrow.

Mayo Day 2024 was one of the kind supporters of the Mayo Football Podcast’s coverage of Mayo’s Connacht Championship opener in New York this year.

  1. Anyone know where a man, or woman, can find who the four’ stand by players’ are for tomorrow?

    In today’s Irish Examiner Eamon Fitzmaurice said Cillian McDaid is one of Galways stand by four, so that information is out there to find, it’s just where and how

  2. If McDaid is on the Galway standby panel then expect to see him make the 26 tomorrow.
    Joyce has a history of playing injured big names against Mayo.

  3. If Damian comer is fit and plays FF our named FB line. He will destroy us….

  4. The guy I’m worried about is Maher. He’s at CHF to target McBrien and nullify him. Galway will be treating us with respect, and they’ll target our key men. If our half back line is stretched, Comer and Walsh can exert much greater influence.

  5. Galway defence is solid, our forwards will struggle for scores. They are stronger at midfield. That leaves it up to our defence. Can we hold Comer, Walsh and Finnerty to same level of scores that they will hold ROD, Aido and Tommy. Could be a long afternoon in Salthill. Hope I am wrong but looks like Galway have timed their season to kick into gear today whereas we go into the game with same issues we had last season. Will be going to cheer on the lads and hoping Galway do not kickstart their season today!

  6. @peter I think a lot on here would be dissapointed if we lost today pride over whatever comes down the road that matters and for the guys confidence to.

    I’d rather head into to group one then get a hammering off the dubs which in all honesty is a likely outcome the way they are playing atm. We’ve a pretty good chance at beating derry, and then armagh /donegal. Anything but a win today would be a big blow tbh.

    Go out to win every game!

  7. I’d agree with Clare. This is a very poor Galway team, that’s not playing at all well, so we should go out to put the game to bed early.

  8. The amount of Mayo supporters on social media and in general selling tickets is quite remarkable.

  9. Sticking with Mayo by 5 and no goal conceded. Just don’t see any improvement from Galway from last year to this. We have definitely progressed (IMO anyway) and have a full deck to pick from. Speedsters will be our weapon today.. never mind the group stage yet this is a must / need to win for me. As an old neighbour of mine used to say he only enjoyed summer when the hay was saved, the turf was home and Mayo had Galway bet !!!

  10. In 2025 Mayo day will take place alongside the Claremorris to Sligo in a bid to reopen to Western Rail Corridor while in 2026 England will feature Mayo vs London rotation Connacht championship fixture will happen.
