The weekend’s matches

There are no National League matches scheduled for the county’s footballers this weekend and so instead it’s an opportunity for the small ball action to claim centre-stage.

Unbeaten after two matches in Division 3A of this year’s National Hurling League, the county’s hurlers are seeking to extend that 100% run when they play Louth. This Round 3 match was originally meant to be played at Hastings Insurance MacHale Park but it’s now been switched to the Connacht GAA Centre of Excellence. Throw-in at Bekan is 2pm on Sunday and the link for match tickets is here.

The county’s camogie team, meanwhile, are in action on Saturday. They’ve one win and one defeat from their opening two matches in Division 4 of the Camogie League and this weekend they travel east to take on Wicklow. Throw-in at Echelon Park in Aughrim is 2pm on Saturday and the ticket link for that one is here.

There’s also underage camogie Championship action on this weekend as well, I notice. We’re down to play Tyrone in Round 2 of the All-Ireland Minor C Championship on Sunday at 2pm. It’s an away game but there’s no information online about the venue for it. The ticket link for it, though, is here.

Finally, there is a football match of note on this weekend, which is an ladies football schools match. Westport Sacred Heart school, who last year were beaten in the final of the Post Primary Schools Senior A Championship, are contesting the All-Ireland semi-final of the same competition and this match takes place on Sunday.

Their opponents are Maynooth Education Campus and the match is fixed for St Aidan’s GAA club, Ballyforan, Roscommon, where throw-in is 2 pm. Oisín McGovern has an informative preview of the game in this week’s Mayo News – that’s here.

The best of luck to all the teams fro the county in action this weekend.

  1. Some serious effort going in at school’s level in Mayo girls football. Great to have pupils and teachers passionate about the sport. Seen some LGFA school games over the last few years and the quality is top class.

  2. There’s no information about the Minor Camogie venue WJ because as of lunchtime on Thursday there was still no venue for the game. Absolutely ridiculous for an All-Ireland championship game

  3. Is the serious efforts of schools reflected in two high profile wins. It would be great to see the ladies getting bach to former glory days
