The rest of the weekend’s action

Photo: @officialgaa The main focus for us this weekend is, understandably, on MacHale Park tomorrow afternoon and the match that’ll determine our League status for next year. It’s not the only match on this weekend, though, and there were a few games of note that took place today. What better place to start than at Croke Park? It was at HQ […]

U21s gunned down by Galway

Photo: @mayonewssport The county’s reign as Connacht and All-Ireland U21 football champions is over, following this evening’s 2-13 to 1-10 defeat to Galway at Tuam in the Connacht semi-final. By all accounts, the young Tribesmen were full value for their victory and were well on top all evening. They weren’t, however, able to translate this dominance fully onto the scoreboard […]

The coming weekend’s action

I’ve just done a quick scan of all the matches involving the county this coming weekend and it’s a bit of a list. It’s worth, then, providing an overview of what’s on so you can check the diary and see which ones you might be able to make. First up is the double-header at Tuam Stadium on Saturday. The curtain-raiser there […]

Corofin are kings of the west once again

There were ties involving Mayo clubs at senior, junior and intermediate level this weekend and, for good measure, there was some hurling action too. Let’s […]

Conor Lane to ref the final

Photo: GAA.ie As has just been mentioned in the comments, the GAA have this afternoon announced that Cork’s Conor Lane has been appointed to ref this year’s All-Ireland final. It’s the Banteer/Lyre clubman’s first final and it’s quite a step up for him because, as far as I know, he’s never even reffed a semi-final up ’till now either. Our […]

Minors fall short in Connacht decider

Photo: @Elverys With all the brouhaha surrounding the seniors today, the minors haven’t got much of a look-in. Enda Gilvarry’s charges are deserving of a mention, however, as they were in action today at Pearse Stadium in the Connacht MFC decider. The windy and wet conditions at Salthill today weren’t conducive to flowing football but the Galway lads coped better […]
