Mayo GAA news, views and over a century of results

That Friday feeling

Photo: RTÉ It’s Friday afternoon, the weekend is upon us and the hours are now ticking down rapidly to Sunday afternoon at MacHale Park and all that. Part of me holds firmly to the view that a clash of such importance so early in the year is utterly bonkers but, then again, that pretty much sums up the current creaking […]

Rochy rules out Lee for Galway game

Photo: Balls.ie The Connacht championship launch took place at the Centre of Excellence in Bekan yesterday and there’s a fair bit of coverage arising from it in the papers today. Mike Finnerty was there for the Mayo News football podcast and you can hear more on that when the episode goes online later on tonight. Stephen Rochford was there to […]

May day

It’s a new month, some would say it’s a new season but it’s still cold and it’s still wet, though an upturn of sorts is expected in the weather by the weekend. Up here, Griffith Avenue has begun to show off its summer foliage (the pic above, by the way, shows the newly-appeared horse chestnut leaves on the avenue by […]

Rochford extends to 2020

Photo: Independent.ie It was widely known that an announcement about Stephen Rochford’s future as Mayo manager was expected this week and all the noises in advance pointed to the likelihood that he would be staying on. There was, though, no indication that he’d be willing to extend his tenure in the post so this evening’s confirmation from Mayo GAA that […]

The results for 2017 have now been placed alongside the 115 years already there, the matches played this year now forming part of the rich tapestry that is the story of inter-county football in Mayo. 2017 saw twenty matches […]

Minors no match for Galway

Photo: @MayoGAA The county’s dismal championship record at underage in recent years continues unabated. In this afternoon’s Connacht MFC preliminary round tie at MacHale Park, Damien Gavin’s charges were no match at all for Galway. Trailing from within minutes of the throw-in, our lads ended up shipping a severe beating, losing in the end by 3-15 to 0-11. The writing was […]

Minor team to play Galway named

Photo: Joe.ie The county’s minor footballers have a do-or-die meeting at the weekend with Galway. Their preliminary round Connacht MFC championship fixture throws in at MacHale Park this coming Sunday (April 30th) at 2.30pm. It’s the final year that minor will be played as an U18 competition and our lads have been handed the toughest possible route through the province this […]

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 […]
