Mayo’s inter-county season isn’t over yet and this coming weekend there are big matches involving the county in both women’s football and camogie.
Unfortunately, the two games clash as both of them are set to be played on Saturday afternoon, one in Thurles and the other in Birr. The LGFA and the Camogie Association have a poor track record, both at inter-county level and at club level within counties, of sorting fixtures in a sensible manner between their respective games but all the same it’s sad to see two big matches involving Mayo clashing in this way.
The camogie match is the final of the Nancy Murray Cup, which we won to considerable jubilation two years ago. On Saturday we’re seeking to win the trophy again, this time playing Wicklow in the final. The game is fixed for St Brendan’s Park, Birr, where throw-in that afternoon is 4pm. Tickets for the final are available to purchase here.
Semple Stadium, Thurles, is the venue for the LGFA All-Ireland SFC semi-finals and on Saturday evening we’re up against Kerry in the opening match of a double-header, which also features the Cork/Dublin semi-final.
Our match against Kerry gets underway at 5pm and the link for purchasing tickets for it is here. Both of these LGFA semi-finals are being shown live on TG4 and we’ll be recording a Final Whistle podcast show at the venue, which will be up on Patreon soon after the game is over.
The best of luck to both Mayo teams in their respective big matches on Saturday.
