New York clash set for first weekend in April

The draw for next year’s provincial Championships is set to take place on Saturday week (21st October) but we already know that our opening match in the 2024 Connacht SFC will be against New York in Gaelic Park.

In this week’s Mayo News, Mike Finnerty reports (here) that this match against the Exiles will take place on the weekend of 6th/7th April. This date has yet to be confirmed by the GAA but Mike reports that the first weekend in April has already been “pencilled in” for the game over in the Bronx.

  1. Easter is Early so it will a week post Easter when Mayo host New York & Galway latest journey to London in 2024. In 2023 Easter wasn’t Early or late. But in 2025 Easter is Late so Roscommon vs London & Galway vs New York Connacht championship games could be pre Easter. In 2026 Easter isn’t Early or Late could a Mayo vs London Connacht championship game take place on Easter Monday Bank Holiday. USA Good Friday & Easter Monday are not Bank Holiday so Roscommon vs New York game can’t clash on Good Friday or Easter Monday. It would be good to see the Mayo vs London Connacht football championship game back in 2026 post phoned Foot and Mouth Disease in 2001 & never part of the 2021 Connacht football championship due to Covid-19. 2024 Galway vs London, Mayo vs New York, 2025 Roscommon vs London, Galway vs New York, 2026 Mayo vs London, Roscommon vs New York, 2027 Sligo vs New York, Leitrim vs London & In 2028 Sligo’s next journey against London & Leitrim should revenge their 2023 to New York.
