Sunday’s county final live on TG4


As is now normal practice, TG4 will be broadcasting Sunday’s county final live from MacHale Park. The historic Moclair Cup decider between Castlebar Mitchels and Breaffy throws in at 3.30pm and TV4’s GAA Beo coverage of the event gets underway at 3pm. Midwest will, of course, also be doing radio coverage of the match that afternoon.

The day’s curtain raiser at MacHale Park, by the way, is the final of the Minor B championship between Hollymount-Carramore and Naomh Padraig, which has a 1.30pm throw-in.

  1. Can see Breaffy coming through this one. Some serious players all around the pitch from Hennelly in goal through to Irwin and Durkin in the forwards. Best midfield partnership in the country in the two O’Shea brothers could be the winning of the game, particularly if Barry Moran is not 100%.

    Castlebar’s long wait to go on another year I think.

    Regardless of who comes out on top though it would be fantastic to see the people of Mayo get behind their county champions in the Connaught and hopefully All-Ireland stage. Remember that whoever wins on Sunday is representing the county and deserves support from everyone, even their rivals. Winning becomes a habit and Breaffy or Castlebar are going to be providing a good chunk of players towards the Mayo panel in the coming years

  2. I think Mac is in Oz, while there’s also a couple of us in the U.S.
    Dont think TG4 streams live outside Ireland..

  3. I will definitely be heading down from Dublin for this one, with the local rivalry and all that, it promises to be a real humdinger. Unfortunately the weather could be an issue, with heavy rain and high winds forecast, this could surely effect the attendance and definitely make life difficult for the players. Anyway let’s hope we have a good match and as I have no affiliation to either club, may the best team win, and here’s hoping that some new talent might emerge that James can add to the Mayo panel.

  4. First and foremost with the final live on TV i hope its a decent game and isn’t a dreadful match like last years county final. I think Castlebar will win they have more experience and have momentum with the U21 success which included a few wins v Breaffy. Castlebar are also the best bet to challenge/beat Corofin but the Galway men look good for Connacht title this year.

  5. Really looking forward to the game tomorrow. It will be a very special occasion for both clubs in this historic final meeting and no doubt it will be an enthralling battle regardless of the weather. May the best team win and hopefully a few new potential additions to the Mayo squad will be on show.

  6. Hope to go. Weather will be a factor.

    Not convinced that a Breaffy run in club championship would be good for the county prospects. Feel a Castlebar run would be less of an issue.

  7. Thats 5 out of 15 mike. Mitchels are better all round and nearly all their players have county experience. Also look at their bench. You seem to forger mitchells hammered them in breaffy in group stage so in castlebar they could be very dangerous!

  8. Played under age for both clubs but I’d like to see Mitchels win it as I won my first County Medal with them

  9. Is Colman Boyle the toughest bit of stuff you have ever seen? What a wallop he took and be jazus there he was at the end of the game having the Craic with the rest of the lads as if nothing happened!

  10. Just in from the final. Only 1 team in it really as Mitchels were far sharper and more organized. Barry Moran rules the skies and kicked a lovely left footed point. Tom King rightly man of the match but I thought young Patrick Durkan at no.7 must have been very close to winning it. Kirby was OK and Walshe was better. Aidan O’Shea was poor and Seamus seemed to run out of steam. Football was fairly good considering the conditions.

  11. Congratulations to Castlebar. It has been a long wait for the Moclair cup to be back in the trophy cabinet of the county town. Wishing them the very best of luck in the Connacht club championship.

  12. they should bring that danny krby on the mayo team use him as a target man would the result be any differant if barry moran was in there as a target man against the dubs

  13. We had noone in half forward line vs dublin so how come moran wasnt put in there. Mobile and can kick from range as shown in club performances. Once again horan needs to reconsider his mistakes re big barry after his club performances. Anyway horan needs to look outside ballintubber for majority of tea and think about bringing new blood in from other clubs especially mitchells

  14. I was shot down for even mentioning Barry as a full forward, in my view he’s a great option at 6″5 as opposed to 5″9 lads under a high ball. That and the fact he won’t be thrown to one side by many defenders and he takes no nonsense ( ask eamon o hara).
    A big guy like Barry Moran at ff is simply a good option to have for route one football, and have his team mates know to play the proper pass to him, I.e, lob it in high in towards the square. So simple.

  15. He should have been thrown in at FF for the last 10mins of the AIF. All academic at this stage tho – chance gone.

  16. Not sure Barry Moran full forward however he showed today hes a better midfielder than the O’Sheas. Mayo do need a target man and if that means moving AOS further forward so be it.

  17. agree with you there also i know should not be to critical but alan dillons days are over he was nowhere to be seen against dublin give the younger lads a chance

  18. I dont think Barry and Aiden work as a partnership as they are not mobile enough against the very best so you are looking at one or the other.
    On today’s evidence Barry deserves another chance. He was outperforming Aiden in the league until his injury too.
    Kirby might be an option on the edge of the square as well. He seems to have an eye for goal.
