The next Mayo match on the horizon is tomorrow evening’s Connacht U20 Championship semi-final against defending champions Sligo – more on that one here – but beyond that we’ve four other matches involving the county taking place this coming weekend.
The action starts on Friday evening, when our defence of the Connacht Minor football title gets underway. The provincial Championship has a round-robin format at the outset and in Round 1 we’re up against Roscommon. This match is fixed for Dr Hyde Park, with throw-in set for 6.30pm.
On Saturday we’ve got two hurling matches of interest.
First up are the U17s, whose Round 2 match in the Celtic Challenge is against Donegal, a game that’s fixed for the Donegal Centre of Excellence in Convoy. That one gets going at midday.
That afternoon, the county’s U20 hurlers are contesting the All-Ireland U20B Championship semi-final, the ultimate prize for which is the Richie McElligott Cup. This match is against Derry and will be played at Breffni Park, Cavan, where throw-in is 1pm.
Finally, on Sunday afternoon, the Senior hurlers get their Christy Ring Cup campaign underway with a Round 1 match against Meath at Páirc Tailteann, Navan. Throw-in there is 2pm on Sunday.
The link for purchasing tickets online is here and tickets will also be available from selected Centra and SuperValu outlets.
The best of luck to all four Mayo teams in action this weekend, and, of course, good luck as well to the U20 footballers tomorrow evening.
