Home and away

All eyes will be on MacHale Park tomorrow for the men’s football game against Meath but today it’s the women who take centre-stage. Deservedly too, as both the county’s camogie and LGFA teams are coming into their matches this weekend on a high, having both tasted success last time out.

Victory over Kildare last Saturday will surely have come as a major boost in confidence to the camogie team. So too must have the appearance at training in Ballyvary during the week of legendary Mayo camogie player Josie Ruane (pictured above).

Josie captained the only Mayo team ever to contest an All-Ireland camogie final, back in 1959, and at training the other evening she had some well-chosen words of encouragement for the current generation of players. That’ll certainly send them into today’s Camogie Leagues Division 4 clash with Louth on a high.

Today’s match takes place on home turf in Tooreen, where throw-in is 2pm, and details of the Mayo team for this game are here. The match is being streamed live, with full commentary, on the Mayo Camogie Facebook page – link here.

Then this evening, up in Ballybofey, the women’s football team are aiming to make it two wins from two in their LGFA Division 1A campaign. I don’t know about the rest of you but last Saturday evening’s smash-and-grab success over Galway made my weekend and I’d say that Michael Moyles’ team will come into this one positively buzzing.

A second win – and a first away from home – would put us in a great position in the division but Donegal, who won well over Westmeath at the same venue last weekend, will be well up for battle this evening too. The Mayo team to play Donegal was named yesterday and details on that are here.

This match is also being streamed live, on the LGFA/Lidl Player, and the link for it is here.

The best of luck to both Mayo teams in their respective contests today.

  1. Best of luck to the Camogie and LGFA teams. Great to see Camogie making a revival in the county. My mother played camogie growing up back in the 30s!

  2. Looking forward to the match tomorrow. If its a dead rubber which I understand it is, it will be interesting to see how we approach it. Its crucial we get a solid performance throughout the team.

    Always pleasing to see newer lads being given a chance and we’ll eagerly await to see how they fare. I’m very happy that Stephen Coen is captain for this one. He’s a proven leader. (I’m guessing Aido will be captain again this year come championship).

  3. Mayo Camogie should get GAA hall of famer, Josie Ruane to visit training more often… Whatever she said, it certainly worked, that’s some result, well done ladies.

  4. Paddyjoejohntom I can’t get ant picture trying to stream just a blank screen here

  5. Paddy, it might depend on what device you’re using, I couldn’t get anything on my huawei phone, I tried my iPad and got stream without any problem. Hope our girls can stay ahead, we’re winning 7 to 6 points at half time.

  6. If it doesn’t work on phone, try ipad and vice versa. Not sure why it’s so finicky but… it is.
