Mayo News football podcast 2018 – Under 20s beat Derry

Páirc Seán Mac Diarmada was the place to be for Mayo football supporters last Saturday afternoon. Those who made it to Carrick-on-Shannon got to witness a pulsating All-Ireland U20 semi-final contest, in which Mayo’s young guns beat off a strong challenge from Derry to emerge the winners by three points. The Mayo News football podcast was there and in this […]

Sunday match reports

We haven’t gone away, you know, and neither have I. Not yet at any rate. I’m even starting the day this morning on Holy Ground, having yesterday – for only the second time since the blog’s inception – travelled out of the county for a match involving us and then back into it afterwards. I’m off out the door again […]

U20s dig deep to down Derry

By far the most annoying thing we’ve had to put up with – to my mind at least – since the seniors’ untimely exit from this year’s championship has been the way so many have queued up to express condolences about the apparent death of football in the county. While the seniors’ championship defeat was, for sure, a major setback […]

Dream ends for Lahardane and Tooreen

Sadly, it wasn’t to be for either Lahardane MacHales or Tooreen in their respective All-Ireland semi-final contests this afternoon. Lahardane lost narrowly to Multyfarnham of Westmeath in their All-Ireland JFC semi-final at Hyde Park while Tooreen were well beaten by Kilkenny’s Ballyragget in their All-Ireland IHC semi-final at Cusack Park in Ennis.

Ladies dethrone the champions

Photo: @ColmGannon The Mayo ladies took the field in their LGFA Senior All-Ireland semi-final against Cork at Breffni Park this afternoon as rank outsiders.  They produced a stunning performance at the Cavan venue, however, to dethrone the long-standing champions and set up an All-Ireland final meeting with Dublin in three weeks time. The ladies won in the finish by two […]

Monday match reports

Photo: MichaelMaye.com We’re two days on from the replay win over Kerry and there’s a thicket of fawning guff about the Dubs to wade through in the media but Saturday’s win was one that put us through to our second All-Ireland final appearance on the trot. It’s definitely worth, then, spending a bit of time looking back on the match […]
