Today’s Championship opener was the first match the Mayo LGFA team had played since March but there wasn’t a trace of lethargy in their performance. Far from it, in fact, as they positively blew away Tyrone this afternoon at Pairc Sean MacDiarmada in Carrick-on-Shannon, winning by 4-17 to 0-4.
Leading the charge for the ladies today in Carrick was Sarah Rowe, who put in a storming performance as she racked up a personal tally of 2-9. Substitute Deirdre Doherty weighed in with 1-2, while Mayo’s other goal today was bagged by Tamara O’Connor.
The win means that it’s now a straight shoot-out between Peter Leahy’s charges and Armagh for a place in the All-Ireland semi-final. That winner-takes-all clash takes place next Saturday evening under the lights at Breffni Park where throw-in will be 5pm.
Unfortunately, I didn’t see today’s match myself but Colm Gannon of the Mayo Advertiser was at Pairc Sean and his match report is here. There’s also a report on today’s game by Peter Murphy on the Ladies Football website – here.
Well done to the ladies and the best of luck to them in their next outing a week from now.

Well done to the Mayo ladies great win for them and well done to Sarah Rowe by all accounts she was outstanding today a good day all round for Ballina and Mayo
What a hiding. Sarah Rowe is some operator
Well done Mayo ladies. With all they have endured over the past couple of years you couldn’t blame them if it took another generation for them to be competitive again. What management and players have achieved is nothing short of a miracle and I would love to see them getting more recognition for it. Best of luck against Armagh and wish I could be there to cheer you on.
