I dunno about the rest of you but my view is that having the matches back again is just bloody great. Good performances, not-so-good displays – who cares? It’s wonderful to have the games we love to focus on back once again, giving us all hope of life beyond Covid, of a time beyond the time when it seemed that time had stood still for us all.
So, to yesterday’s games. We had three Mayo teams in action at three different locations, against three different counties. Same result, though – three wins from three and the hurlers have a shot of completing a notable foursome this afternoon as well.
I can’t find any match reports on the camogie win over Kildare yesterday. I know that they’re going to be doing a report on the game on the Mayo Camogie website today and I’ll provide the link to that later on. That’s a good website, by the way, and it’s great to see the camogie revival within the county gathering pace online as well as on the field.
UPDATE: that match report is now online – it’s here.
Onto the men’s win over Westmeath, here’s the haul of links from that one.

Next that thrilling comeback win for the women over Galway yesterday evening. There are reports on that one here: Mayo Advertiser, RTÉ, Ladies Football. Mayo LGFA have a few nice action shots by Michael Donnelly from the game (including the one above) – here.
Speaking of pics, you may have seen the photo of Jordan Flynn (below), feeding the parking meter in Mullingar before the match yesterday. What a glamorous life these inter-county players lead.
That’s your lot for now. Best of luck to the hurlers today in Donegal, a match that available to view, on a pay-per-view basis, on Donegal GAA TV – here. I won’t get to see that game myself as I’m on the road for several hours today but I’ll have a report, of sorts, on it later on and the result of the MOTM poll from the Westmeath game, voting for which will remain open for a fair few hours yet.
Enjoy your Sunday. Up Mayo.
