It’s a “down” weekend coming up for the men’s football team – though, as Kevin McStay was at pains to point out in his post-match comments last Sunday, this just means they’re not playing a National League match and will instead be working away themselves – but there are other three matches involving teams from the county taking place.
Two of these games are taking place on Saturday. I’ve only got fixture details for one of them at this stage so let’s start with that one.
The U20s are up against Meath in the final of the Leo Murphy Cup. That game is fixed for Kiltoom where throw-in is at 2pm on Saturday.
There’s also a Camogie League Division 3A match against Tyrone listed for that day. It’s a home game but that’s all the information I have on that one as yet.
UPDATE: This match has now been confirmed for Adrian Freeman Park, Tooreen, where throw-in is 2pm on Saturday.
Then on Sunday, it’s the turn of the hurlers. They’re in choppy waters in Division 3A of the National Hurling League, rooted to the foot of the table and winless after three rounds of matches.
That makes Sunday’s meeting with table-toppers Monaghan at Hastings Insurance MacHale Park (throw-in 2pm) a real must-win fixture if relegation to hurling’s basement division is to be avoided. With the Farney lads on three wins from three that’s not going to be easy but here’s hoping they can do it.
The best of luck to all three Mayo teams in action this weekend.
