Tribesmen test up next for us

Image: @MayoGAA It’s definitely time to close the book on last Saturday night’s defeat to Kerry and look ahead instead to our next match in this year’s League campaign. In Round 3 this coming Sunday we face newly-promoted Galway at Pearse Stadium, where throw-in is 2pm and where the LGFA match between the same two counties acts as the curtain-raiser […]

A few FBD stats

Back in its favoured Monday slot too. Could life possibly get any better? Slim enough pickings in the hopper this morning, I’m afraid. GAA stories never take centre-stage in January at the best […]
