No county for old men

Ahead of our appearance in this coming weekend’s league semi-finals, John Cuffe has some thoughts on the contest facing us. Photo: Smashing Lists  I watched the excellent No Country for Old Men the other night … for the third time. It still makes my toes curl and look away at the impending doom at times but it’s always compulsive viewing … just like Mayo […]

Monday match reports

For the second Monday running, it’s nice to be able to start the week with some glowing match reports. What odds on a three-in-a-row in that department this day week? Well, I can tell you the answer to that because, once again, we’re priced as 2/1 outsiders by Paddy Power to beat Dublin, i.e  the same odds that were available […]

Heading South

It’s a big enough day for us tomorrow, with the lads facing into a match that could well decide our fate in Division One, even if, as I suspect could well happen, events elsewhere eventually dictate who finishes where in the table tomorrow evening. Heading into tomorrow’s clash with Cork at Páirc Uí Chaoimh (throw-in 3pm) we at least have […]

Injury worries ahead of next weekend

A week ahead of our crunch final league match of the year, against Cork at Páirc Uí Chaoimh next Sunday, there was some unwelcome injury news today following the round of league matches that were played this afternoon. The biggest concern relates to Barry Moran who, as Colm Gannon reported, lasted just three minutes of Castlebar’s league clash against Breaffy […]

Monday match reports

Photo: Mayo Mick It’s Monday, another bitterly cold one in this perma-winter we appear to be stuck in but, with some uplifting match reports to sift through, things could be a lot worse. The nationals (Irish Times, Irish Independent, Irish Examiner) cover much of the same ground, all pointing to the inspirational performance put in by Man of the Match […]
