The weekend is upon us already and there are a number of matches involving the county taking place tomorrow and Sunday, in ladies football, hurling and camogie. Here’s a quick run-down of what’s on.
Starting tomorrow where in women’s football there’s an LGFA Connacht U18 Championship Round 3 game between Mayo and Galway, throwing in at Caherlistrane GAA club at 2pm. Tickets for this game are available to purchase here.
Also tomorrow the U17 Celtic Challenge Championship gets underway. The Mayo panel for this competition was announced today (details here) and the county’s opening game takes place against Sligo at the Connacht GAA Centre of Excellence (throw-in 12.30pm). I can’t see any details, I’m afraid, on tickets for that one.
On Sunday, the hurlers get their Christy Ring Cup campaign underway. James Stephens Park in Ballina is the venue for their Round 1 clash with Kildare and throw-in there is 1pm. Tickets may be purchased via selected Centra and SuperValu outlets and are also available to purchase here.
Finally, also on Sunday, the Mayo camogie team are once again on the hunt for silverware. Their remarkable run since returning to inter-county action last year continues and Jimmy Lyons’ team are now aiming to follow up last year’s Nancy Murray Cup success by capturing the Camogie Leagues Division 4 title and, with it, promotion to Division 3.
The successful return to the inter-county scene after a long absence is a great Mayo sporting success story and the the story of the team’s unbeaten run to Sunday’s League decider is here.
The Division 4 final is against Wicklow, who Mayo beat by six points in the second round of this competition, and it takes place on Sunday at Coralstown GAA club in Westmeath where throw-in is 1pm. Tickets for the final are available to purchase here.
The best of luck to all the Mayo teams in action this weekend.
