Thanks for the updates Willie Joe. You are a legend.
I have to say the €60 I spent buying the Mayo gaa tv season ticket is the best €60 I spent in a long time. A great service and in general very good quality camera work. I dont know is any other county providing such a comprehensive service. I wouldn’t mind the Dubs – with their resources they can do what they want.
A couple of questions for the people watching a lot of club football here:
Is Cathal Slattery good enough to play for Mayo? He looked great the other day at times v Knockmore, but isn’t really spoken about much as an option despite still only being 22.
Also, how likely is Jack Coyne to push from the fringes of the panel into the starting 15 next year. Possible Oisin Mullin replacement?
What about Cathal Horan as a replacement for Oisin Mullin he was one of the best performers at centre back in the Under 20 All Ireland v Kildare in 2018, is it the fact hes with a small Junior club that he’s been overlooked?
@TH I watched Cathal Horan play a club championship match recently and he looks a long way off the pace of intercounty senior football.
Are the tickets for the county final on sale yet? I had a look on the universe site there and the sale of tickets is locked! Sold out already…. I hope not.
Not sold out JoeT1480
Locked for clubs only currently before general sale later in week
Mountbellew show Mayo how it’s done
Took their chance today with open arms after a plethora of final losses over the last 13 years
Corofin era comes to an end in Galway. What an outfit they’ve been but all things come to an end
Reckon wel be seeing Eoin Finnerty lining out for galway next year he was phenomenal
As bad as some people give out about James Horan leaving some players out of County panel in Mayo , Padhraig Joyce is alot worse, leaving out Eoin Finnerty, Barry Mchugh, and Matthew Barrett that all would walk onto any other county team.Michael Daly also not in current Galway squad. Like Ole Gunnar Solskjaer the longer Joyce is in charge of Galway the better for Mayo. Knockmore will have their work cut out with Mountbellew in Connacht.
Don’t know was McHugh fully county standard (phenomenal free taker though) but I agree overall that Joyce is holding Galway back. Maybe Cian O’Neill will be the difference
I do expect Barrett and Finnerty will be in the squad next year and a fit John Daly will be some asset to them next year too
Agree, can’t see the mayo winner winning Connacht based on that. Mbellew also were superb in the semi v moycullen, and beat corofin last year too – this was far from a flash in the pan today
Corofin this year were like Dublin this year – not a patch on the team they were. The appetite wasnt there for Corofin. Ciaran Molloy on Galway team- taken off today.
Dylan McHugh centre back for Galway- his player scores 1-3 and get man of the match.
Well done to MM – kept at it despite many set backs over the years.
It looks like this year will be a record for club teams not defending the county title they won last year- so many new winners around the country.
Cian O’Neill made a big difference when teams weren’t up to peak levels of Strength and Conditioning a decade ago. Now all Division 1 teams have really high levels so I don’t think he makes a huge difference we seen that with his Kildare and Cork roles.I would rate Barry McHugh as one of the best free takers in the country with Cillian and Dean Rock and for that alone he deserves a place, Shane Walsh is not as reliable from placed balls.If Galway could get their best 15 on the field they would be a serious force, but with Joyce that doesn’t look like that is going to happen. Adrian Varley, Ian Burke, Ronan Steede, Ciaran Duggan and Michael Daly have all left Galway since he came in.
@Sam Og…I think you’ll find Shane Walsh is up there with the best of them as regards free taking..a way ahead in most aspects of his play in my opinion..
No Shane Walsh has missed vital frees in big games for Galway, anyone in club football circles in Galway will say that Barry Mchugh is the best freetaker in the County. I didn’t compare McHugh and Walsh from play as I agree that Walsh is the most talented footballer Galway have. McHugh gave an exhibition of free taking in the National League final in 2018 against Dublin in Croke Park kicking 5 frees and 1 from Play. https://www.the42.ie/dublin-galway-division-1-final-3935174-Apr2018/
Mike farragher came on v mayo too southmayo exile and didn’t even start today
Exactly like Dublin, impossible keep the hunger up year after year. When they beat kilcoo to win three in a row it was clear they were bailing water a bit even at that stage. Should have lost to tuam in Galway, while they huffed and puffed their way through most games and dug out wins on know-how and experience more than anything. The Nemo and Crokes finals in 18 and 19 – that was their real pomp
Since then they lost Fitz, while Sice and Ian Burke missed most of this campaign. Players like Steede, Lundy, Cathal silke and Mike Farragher are in their 30s now and have regressed a lot since their peak years. Others like Molloy and Leonard have never reached the same heights since either, while Martin farragher remains a complete mystery .
That was a mightily impressive showing from mountbellew moylough today. They were outstanding right a cross the pitch and were full value for the win. They will5be very hard stopped in connaught
The mind boggles at how padraig joyce is wasting so much talent in that county, surely Matthew Barrett better than any galway starting midfielders. Both dalys should be starting for Galway too. The standard of their senior county championship is as good as is in the country.
I hope PJ will stay in charge for many years to come :-p
We hated Galway having PJ as a marquee forward putting up big scores in All Ireland finals but he can stay as long as he wants in management now 😀
John Daly hasn’t been available for Galway since league early 2020 when he started centre back
His absence last season is basically the reason mbellew haven’t won two in a row today
John Daly will be starting for Galway now that he’s fit. Has been injured for most of the last 2 seasons. I wouldn’t blame Joyce for not picking anyone else from the Mountbellew team. Kevin Walsh got the same stick for not picking enough Corofin players. Joyce has been playing them for the last year without much success.
Barry McHugh isn’t good enough to get into the Galway forward line. Michael Daly has been hit and miss when I’ve seen him for Galway. Barrett looked a good midfielder, but Galway have been decent enough there with Paul Conroy, Peter Cooke and Matthew Tierney. Eoin Finnerty looks the best prospect. Think he’s better than Damien Comer.
Would agree that Mountbellew were very impressive. Definitely favourites for the Connacht championship no matter who comes out of Mayo.
Seeing how this post is turning not a Galway love in, can I say that the Tipp hurling was an absolute epic. Draw, No ET, second helping Sunday week.
‘turning into a Galway love-in’. ‘Tipp men’s senior hurling final’.
Apart from those errors my post was a model of clarity.
The question was asked on Cathal Slattery. Well I think potentially he could be a good impact sub at 13. One on one he’s got that ability to get by his man or open up space for a pass or shot. He’s improved his linking in with other players.
A year of strength and conditioning he’d be hitting the defenders tackle arm with more venom. Looks around the six foot mark, natural pace, has that ability to nail points consistently the 25-35 yard bread and butter points of a good forward.
I say impact sub as I see pacey finishers like him as almost guaranteed 1-2pt impacts in the last quarter, winning frees, creating overlaps for goals.
Ramping up the attacking pace that needs to be contained in the last quarter.
I see the first combine weekend was held already. Interesting names on the two teams listed. I notice there was not too many from north Mayo… hopefully once belmullet and knockmore are finished there will be a few more for the next one
Let’s hope we can find some new players because when we reached for the bench in September.. it offered absolutely zero.
Thinks that’s terribly harsh on young Aidan Orme and Enda Hession, Orme was introduced at the 65th minute with us 5 points down and hadn’t got any game time since the Leitrim game. I think Enda Hession is out and out half forward not a back. Enda and Aidan are two serious prospects and I predict will be household games within a few years.
If your going after anywhere it’s our starting half forwards and midfield thats where we performed very poorly.
No Claremorris or Moy Davitts player at the combine either. Despite having East Mayo and South Mayo’s best underage sides over recent years.

Last time I looked, this was a Mayo site.Surmising who will/wont play for Galway doesn’t interest me.In my opinion,comparing a guy kicking frees in an average Galway championship campaign, to Cillian or Dean Rock doing it in the white heat of All Ireland finals is a bit of a stretch,but as I say,it’s only my opinion.
Sam og. I’m not referring to those two as they are young and new and haven’t seen much championship action. Its the others that didn’t offer anything and absolutely your damn right. Midfield and half forward s had nightmare on the day. Flynn and coen didn’t offer anything I thought. Carr was very late.
Sam . I wasn’t referring to those two at all. They are new. .you are quite right. Midfield and half forward s didn’t show.
@Larry Duff, I would agree with your opinion on Cathal Horan, you would have seen him at very close quarters this year. Cathal Slattery wouldn’t make the standard, none of the Garrymore lads stood out. Looking at the combine list are they blatantly ignoring junior club players? Not one player at this weeks combine, hopefully some will make the next combine.
The Team Blue players were: Aaron McHale (Parke), Adam Barrett (Kilmaine), Alfie Morrison (Louisburgh), Bob Tuohy (Castlebar), Ciaran Gavin (Ballintubber), Conor Dunleavy (Balla), Donnacha McHugh (Castlebar), Frank Irwin (Ballina), Jack Livingstone (Breaffy), Jack Mahon (Charlestown), Kuba Callaghan (Ballaghadereen), Liam Óg Horkan (Garrymore), Matthew Lenaghan (Charlestown), Niall Murphy (Charlestown), Oisin Tunney (Breaffy), Paddy Goldrick (Charlestown), Tomas Fahey (Kilmaine).
Team Green was: Aaron McDonnell (Ballinrobe), Aidan Cosgrove (Kiltimagh), Cathal Slattery (Garrymore), Conor Beirne (Breaffy), Conor McStay (Ballina), Fenton Kelly (Davitts), Fionan Duffy (Crossmolina), Jack Roynane (Davitts), Jamie McNicholas (Kiltimagh), Liam Burke (Ballinrobe), Niall McManamon (Westport), Paddy Heneghan (Castlebar), Patrick Cannon (Burrishoole), Ronan Carolan (Parke), Ronan O’Reilly (Parke), Sam Callinan (Ballina), Stephen Jackson (Ardnaree).
Not convinced there’s any junior players out there good enough right now. Justin Healy of Kilcommon is a talented forward but it’s a huge step up. Perhaps kilmeena have a couple of young lads that could be good enough with a year or two of training. Few lads with Hogan cup experience there. I would be expecting Jack Carney to stand out next weekend in the junior final, if indeed he is good enough to play senior for Mayo.
To be blunt, there was no one in the Shrule v Kilcommon match who looked good enough. Didn’t see islandeady play this year but haven’t heard of any standout players there. Ardagh obviously have James Carr but he hadnt a great season in the championship for them by all accounts.
One player that i saw a few times this year and last year and just can’t believe has not got a chance is conor walsh from balla gaa. When you look at the extended panel on the mayo squad how he has not been brought in is mind boggling stuff.
