The only proper account of the game, which our lads won by 4-11 to 1-8, is provided by Colm Gannon in the Mayo Advertiser. His match report is here. Round-up reports, covering both our match and […]

Four goals for minors as they advance to decider

Half-time

Photo: @GAA_2016 The Mayo minors opened their championship campaign in impressive fashion at Páirc Seán Mac Diarmada in Carrick-on-Shannon this evening. Belmullet’s Ryan O’Donoghue was the star of the show at the Leitrim venue, bagging 3-4 as Enda Gilvarry’s charges ran out convincing winners on a scoreline of 4-11 to 1-8. Ryan O’Donoghue opened the […]

Minors in action this evening

Leitrim Mayo

Image: @MayoClub51 With most of the focus at the minute on the seniors and their backdoor concerns, the start of this year’s minor championship has kinda snuck up on us. The provincial minor campaign got underway last Saturday with a quarter-final meeting between Roscommon and Sligo – which the young Rossies won by the narrowest […]

Some stuff about Fermanagh

Mayo Fermanagh 2004

Photo: Connaught Telegraph So we’ve drawn Fermanagh in the qualifiers, with our Round 2B tie to be played at MacHale Park on 9th July at a time to be announced at some point later on today. It’ll be our first taste of the backdoor since we lost to Longford in a first round qualifier in […]

Poll: who would you like us to draw on Monday morning?

Feck it where's the hot one

Photo: GAA The four Round 1B qualifier matches were played earlier on today and so the identities of the four counties who will be drawn against four of the beaten provincial semi-finalists (ourselves included) are now known. As a result, it’s certain that our Round 2B qualifier match on 9th July will be against one of […]

Club championship fixtures

Photo:  Memories thru a Lens (via Facebook) As we put further distance between ourselves and events last Saturday, the focus within the Mayo GAA scene narrows down to local issues this coming weekend. The second round of matches in both the senior and intermediate club championships are on this Saturday and Sunday and the full […]

Championship prediction mini-league – third update

Facetheball banner

With the start of the qualifiers last weekend there was a decent sprinkling of games on and not all of them, including – as we so well know – our own one went according to form. That’s had a bit of an impact on the prediction mini-league leaderboard so it’s as well to do an […]

Which is good because, to be honest, I’d expected the coverage on our provincial demise to be more of the booting-us-when-we’re-down variety but instead it’s been, for the most part, fair as well as rigorous. Here’s today’s batch. Don’t Foul always comes up […]
