Sunday match reports

Mayo were out of the traps rapidly yesterday but I’m afraid I’m a bit slower off the mark today myself. By the looks of it, I’ve still some dirty diesel to blow off or maybe it’s the after-effects of the Covid jab I was happy to get the other day.

Excuses, excuses. There’s media coverage from yesterday’s action to be pointing to so let’s get pointing.

Starting with the win over Down, here’s what’s being said about that one:

Locals: Mayo Advertiser, Connaught Telegraph, Western People, Midwest Radio (includes post-match audio from both managers).

Nationals: Irish Examiner, Irish Times, Irish Independent, Irish Sun, Irish Mirror (live blog).

Others: GAA, Mayo GAA, RTÉ, BBC, The 42.

The hurlers’ win over Roscommon is reported on in the Mayo Advertiser and the Connaught Telegraph, while Ciara Buckley has her usual excellent collection of match photos from that game on her Memories Thru a Lens page on Facebook.

Finally, there are reports on the camogie match against Roscommon yesterday in both the Mayo Advertiser and on the Mayo Camogie website.

Okay, that’s your lot for now. Just in case anyone is eagerly awaiting a new episode of the Mayo News football podcast to drop today, please note that, due to logistical difficulties created by Covid restrictions on match-days, we won’t be releasing any episodes on the day after a game for the next while. Our next episode, which will be looking back on yesterday’s game and previewing the Westmeath match, will be online on Wednesday.

The MOTM poll from yesterday’s game is still open, by the way, with Tommy Conroy speeding ahead up front in the voting, chased by Ryan O’Donoghue, Óisin Mullin and Mattie Ruane. If you haven’t yet cast your vote there’s still plenty of time to do so. I’ll post the result of the poll later on this evening.

  1. Think I’ve been first to post for the last 3 blogs! A record for me.

    I notice we’ve lost the big names from the nationals covering us. They are relying on the local writers to give them the details. A sign of the times. Fair play to the Sun. They sent a man down and a damn good report it is too. Still, no harm that we are out of the limelight.

  2. Totally agree catcol, a while out of the limelight will do us no harm at all. Great to see all the young guns being really involved and making a big impact. Onwards and upwards…

  3. Thanks for that WJ. A lot of work linking those newspaper reports to their appropriate web pages. We dont say thank you often enough for the great service you give us coupled with your insightful opinions.
    Looks like Horan is going to maximise our stay in div 2 to blood fringe players. Hopefully by the end of the league well be talking about ‘new finds’ to bolster our panel.
    I fellt established players like Keegan McLoughlin and even Duran and the O Connors took a back seat and let the newbies at it.
    I think thats backed up by the Man of the Match leaderboard.
    Good leadership qualities shown by our next generation stars and i hope that this trend continues throughout the league.
    Im looking forward to McCormack, Orme and Irwin getting their turn to shine.
    Only disapointment for me is not to seeing King on the panel but I take it the doors not shut there
