Mayo GAA news, views and over a century of results

Looking ahead

Photo: jonizquierdo.com I think it really is time to start moving on from Saturday’s events and this week’s issue of the Mayo News (out today, paper and digital format) helps that process considerably. Daniel Carey has a piece on the front page of the sports section of the paper (here), which contains a very brief statement from County Board PRO […]

Where to from here?

Okay, okay – so it proved to be more than yesterday’s news. The Indo has made sure of that, rolling out two follow-on pieces yesterday and another one today. Who knows? Maybe they have a whole week of content pre-cooked and ready to serve up to the nation. But, eventually, the big tent will come down and the circus will […]

Masters land All-Ireland at last

It took extra-time in today’s Connacht SFC semi-final before Galway champions Corofin eventually emerged as the winners on a scoreline of 0-17 to 0-14. I wasn’t there myself and as I was […]
