Mitchels motor to back-to-back county titles

Photo: @MayoGAA Under the bright lights at MacHale Park this evening it was the performance of Castlebar Mitchels that shone most intensely. Three second half goals saw them canter away from the challenge of Knockmore to land back-to-back Moclair Cup wins. I wasn’t there to see it myself but I did keep half an eye […]

Under the MacHale Park spotlight

And then there were two. Well, eventually there was two in terms of the Intermediate Championship but we’ll get to that in a while. It’s not often that the Gods smile down on me. I was covering matches elsewhere before the big games on Saturday and Sunday but I was excellently positioned geographically wise and […]

Then there were two

Photo: Western People (David Farrell Photography) The county club football championship moved another step closer to its conclusion yesterday and now there are just two contenders left in the race for the Moclair Cup. It was confirmed yesterday that the final will be held under the lights at MacHale Park this coming Saturday evening, where […]

Down to the final four

There is talk at the moment that the Mayo senior football final could be played under floodlights in MacHale Park on Saturday Oct 29th with the Intermediate final being played as either the curtain raiser or to remain fixed for Sunday 30th. Speaking of lights, Cillian O’ Connor was shooting them all out on Sunday […]

Club championship round-up

While us supporters were still getting our heads around another All-Ireland final day tragedy, county players were returning back to their clubs and joining forces once more with their hard-working club comrades. Last weekend had it all – the Senior and Intermediate groups were being tidied up while the weekend also was host to county […]

All together now

The decision’s been made. As I noted the other day there were valid arguments on both sides of the debate on what to do about the planned round of club matches for this coming weekend. But now the decision to call off the bulk of the games has been made and it’s time to move […]

Postpone next weekend’s club matches

Photo: MichaelMaye.com A debate has begun to bubble up – here and elsewhere – about the planned round of club championship matches fixed for this coming weekend. There are valid arguments to be advanced on both sides of this debate – and I have sympathy with both – so I think it might be helpful […]

Round-up of weekend’s club action

Photo: @MayoAdvertSport Just a quick one to confirm all of the results in this weekend’s senior and intermediate club championships, which were as follows: Senior Football Championship Group 1: Garrymore 1-13 Davitts 1-10; Breaffy 3-15 Claremorris 1-11.

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 […]

Club championship results

Photo: @bonniconlon_gaa This weekend saw the start of the 2016 football championship at inter-county level – with action in both Leinster and Ulster – and The Sunday Game will be starting on TV most likely before I’m done here. It’s club action, though, I want to deal with briefly here, as this weekend also saw […]
