The weekend’s matches

Another Friday rolls around, with the weekend up ahead once more. It’s another one that sees Mayo teams in Championship action, with both matches involving the county’s women. Both pf this weekend’s matches are, coincidentally, against Cavan.

Tomorrow it’s a meeting of Mayo and Cavan in the Premier Junior Camogie Championship. This match takes place at St Patrick’s Park, Westport, where throw-in is 4pm. Tickets for this game are available to purchase here.

On Sunday, it’s the turn of the footballers. Their LGFA Senior Championship Group A Round 2 meeting with the Breffni County has been fixed for Pearse Park, Longford, with a 1.45pm throw-in.

Tickets for this one are available to purchase here and the game will also be broadcast live on TG4, with live match commentary on Midwest Radio as well. We named our team earlier on for the game and full details on that are here.

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

  1. Best of luck to our ladies tomorrow. Five of our best players playing in Australia, we’d definitely be serious contenders if they were available. Good result against Tipperary last week, especially after the disappointment of losing the connacht final.

  2. Clare doing a Mayo on it. Waiting until they’re 6 down before kicking into gear!

  3. Two really entertaining hurling matches. Credit to all four teams. An observation from the Galway – Cork game. Only one of the team’s (Cork) had to change their jerseys for this one. Why is that any time we play Kerry or football games in the championship in general where there is a colour clash that both sets of teams have to change? The black Mayo and blue Kerry kits are way too similar. Speaking probably in the minority here as I’m colour blind but isn’t it logical to just change one teams kit for the game. Coin toss maybe?

  4. @Erris Head, one thing I know if it’s a hot day with strong sunshine under no circumstances should we wear that black jersey.
    Compare wearing a black t-shirt on a hot day versus a white t-shirt
    Black is the most infrared rays absorbent materiel, so if you painted a closed jar of water black the water inside will get hotter after one hour in the sun.
    If you paint that sane jar “emitting ” white, basically the infrared rays are way less absorbed by white. The water in the jar will not be as hot.
    This is based around direct sunshine.
    On a cloudy humid heat day the effect is less so.
    Intuitively think of how scorched a black car versus white car gets on a sunshiney day.

  5. I’m looking for a lower tier ticket for next Sundays game for a genuine Mayo fan folks. I’m at 087 7554225.
    Many thanks in advance.

  6. Interesting hurling games. No side dominated any match for long periods. They all had their purple patches. Important thing is to be in front at the full time whistle. Just like Mayo were v Monaghan and Kildare.

  7. Best of luck to the ladies today, also hope Sligo do the job but their up against it.

  8. In the first half Cork scored 7points from 24 attempts. Mayo footballers would be slaughtered for those stats.

  9. I tried to get tickets for the family online. Not as straight forward a process as it could be.
    It appears they are releasing seats in blocks for sale.

  10. Great to see RTE showing Tailteann Cup semifinals today Hope they’re competitive games.

  11. Also great to see TG4 showing the Ladies’ football. Mayo are 5 points ahead of Cavan at half time and playing lovely football

  12. Wow what a second half. Cavan scored two goals and drew level but Mayo didn’t panic and ground out a one point win

  13. Skilful, tenacious display by Sligo with manager Tony McEntee in the Tailteann Cup semi final in Croke Park. Just short by 3 at the end but they had lots of goal chances. Proud of our neighbours.

  14. Anyone know when the next batch of tickets is going live for next weekends match.

  15. Is next weekend a sellout, I knew it would be big crowd but never thought it would sell out

  16. Girls did well to get the win in the end but they could just as easily have lost. They were 8 points up early in the 2nd half, they continued with their all out attack but the scores dried up, they left massive gaps in defence and Cavan stole in for 2 goals. At 8 points up it was time to slow things down, tighten up in defence, frustrate them and catch them on the counter attack. However, well done on getting through to the quarter finals.
