Minors and hurlers in action this weekend

With another weekend starting to appear over the horizon, it’s time to set out details of the matches involving the county that are taking place. This coming weekend there are two such games, involving the Minors and the hurlers.

The Minor game is a tasty one. The lads are taking on Galway in Round 3 of the Connacht MFC, having sat out Round 2 last weekend following that impressive opening round win over Roscommon the week before.

Galway come into this game on top of the table with two wins from two outings. They beat Sligo by 1-13 to 1-9 at Markievicz Park in the opening round the week before last and then last Friday they saw off Roscommon at Tuam Stadium by 1-13 to 0-8.

Our match with them takes place at Hastings Insurance MacHale Park on Friday evening, where throw-in is 7pm.

Tickets for the game (costing €10) are available to purchase here and the match is also being streamed live by Connacht GAA (match pass is €10 too). Details on the streaming service are here but the link to Friday’s game isn’t up yet.

The hurlers are in action on Sunday. Their Christy Ring Cup game is also in Castlebar and this is a real crunch one for them. Following two defeats from two outings, the lads could really do with a win in this one, which is against London. Throw-in is set for 12.30pm on Sunday and tickets for the game are available to purchase here.

The best of luck to both Mayo teams in action this coming weekend.

  1. Looking forward to the Galway game on Friday evening. Probably be damp enough but hopefully won’t spoil it as a spectacle. Two good looking teams judging by the form shown in the early games. Hopefully a big crowd turn out for this one as both teams likely to progress from Connacht.

  2. Anyone know if you buy the stream for the minor game can it be watched back after the game is over

  3. All square at half-time in the Minor game. Mayo 1-4 Galway 0-7. Galway look stronger and more polished, freakish goal by Darragh Beirne helping us to go in level.

  4. Disappointed with the crowd in McHale park. Would say that Galway outnumbered us.
    Galway were the better team overall but mayo will be disappointed, particularly when Galway went down to 14.
    What harm, another few games will bring them on. Some good forwards on both sides. Big men for under 17.

  5. Me too, Rober! We mentioned that on the pod. Very disappointing attendance, hardly anyone there for it, which was a real pity as it was a cracking match.

  6. Good game alright. Maybe a bit more speed in the Mayo team while Galway had some seriously big young lads. Both Galway midfielders and their 14 were monsters. A bit like last year I think they will meet again in the Connacht final.

  7. On the attendance it’s mostly family members of the players that go as I don’t think 7pm on Friday nights suits many other people. Would it be too much trouble for the Connacht GAA to fix some of these games on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon?

  8. Other than the result I thoroughly enjoyed that game. Some good and very promising lads on both teams which bodes well for the future.I am a fan of the round-robin format and think U20s should also be using it but it will always be a factor attendance wise. As “mayomagic” said &pm on Friday won’t suit everyone especially for anyone who’s been at work.
