The weekend’s games

While team news for the Derry game is awaited, here’s what you need to know about the two knockout Championship matches – both against Ulster opposition – in which the county is involved this weekend.

Tomorrow evening it’s the All-Ireland SFC preliminary quarter-final against Derry. This game throws in at Hastings Insurance MacHale Park at 6.30pm and it’s live on GAA GO (link here), with live radio commentary on Midwest as well. The ticket link for the game is here.

On Sunday evening the county’s Minors take on Armagh in the All-Ireland MFC semi-final at Pearse Park in Longford. This game throws in at 5.30pm and it’ll be shown live on TG4 (i.e. the TV station, not the YouTube channel). Midwest will also have live radio commentary on it. The ticket link for the game is here.

We’ll have Final Whistle pods from Castlebar and Longford after both of these games, providing the usual post-game reaction and in-the-moment analysis on both matches.

The best of luck to the two Mayo teams in action this weekend.

  1. First time announcement all year I have really been waiting for, I am obviously fully aware the team may not start.

    Watching the Dublin match back it was striking how we are now a team that can manage to break down a set defence. We also weren’t carved open at will for goal chances. Two things that were our biggest fear for many a game.

    Of course all meaningless if we don’t beat Derry.

  2. Best of luck to all our teams. We could do with some sunshine in the west
    Máigheo abú

  3. The minor match on Sunday evening is also on GAAGo, for those abroad in particular

  4. I’ve been coerced into accompanying the nephew to the Donegal rally. The iPad will be my saviour later hopefully.

  5. Eoghan Mc Loughlin, named to start. So looks like the substitution was precautionary last week.

  6. No sign of Boland, didn’t see anything on the appeal? Otherwise we’ve come through last weekend in decent shape if everyone named can play a part

  7. If Diamuid is ready for a 70 minutes I’d imagine he’ll start, otherwise everyone from last week deserves their place if fit.

  8. Some positional changes from last week Carney 14Cohen midfield Brixkenden 5 but of course numbers on jerseys do not mean much in the modern game. Would expect Diarmuid to start.

  9. I noticed that too, Mayo67 – particularly Carney at 14 (and Brickenden at 5) and Coen at midfield. Do they all drop back one and Donnacha McHugh becomes freed up to do a man-marking role?
    Carney would be interesting in the full forward line. He knows where the bar is and goes for a score on sight.
    Is the weather promised good for tomorrow evening?
    Who will mark Shane McGuigan?
