The men weren’t the only ones in action today as the county’s women footballers also had a League Division One match this afternoon. The LGFA match took place in Tuam against neighbours Galway and it ended in an emphatic win for Michael Moyles’ team, as they came out on top by 6-6 to 2-8.

Sinéad Walsh – lining out for the county for the first time at Senior level – bagged two goals for us, the first the opening score of the game. Lisa Cafferky got two goals as well, including this one, which features a great dummy solo and lobbed finish:

Sinéad Walsh scored her team’s final goal as well as the opening one and it was an impressive finish from the teenager as well:

With two wins from two outings, Mayo now advance – with a game to spare – to the Division One semi-finals. No more than the lads, the women have really hit the ground running this year. More power to them.

The county’s hurlers, meanwhile, had a tough afternoon up North. They went under to Derry in this afternoon’s NHL Division 2B meeting at Owenbeg. The Oakleafers won out in this one by 4-24 to 1-14. Match report from the Connaught Telegraph is here.

There was better news on the camogie front where the Mayo Minor team beat Cavan by 2-12 to 1-5 in Group 2 of the All-Ireland Minor C Championship. Well done to them.

  1. Well done to all concerned but we need much higher point-taking in order to be competitive at the highest level.

  2. With 6 of our best players in Australia, I thought Mayo would struggle to challenge the top teams this year. Moyles has done a thorough trawl of the talent available and has discovered new exciting players. Maybe we can do a Meath this year. Well done to all.
