Mayo 1-12 Donegal 0-13: top tier status secured after torrid tussle

Going into today’s final round of this year’s League there were two potential routes open to us for preserving our Division One status. For long stretches of this afternoon’s combustible clash with Donegal it looked as if we were going to have to rely on the fall-back option of Roscommon beating Cavan to keep us up. Eventually, though, we looked […]

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.

Wonderful Westport claim club title

What’s rare, they say, is beautiful. Teams from Mayo – even ones going into a final, as Westport did today, as odds-on favourites to prevail – haven’t exactly spoiled us with happy endings at Croke Park. In those nerve-shredding final moments of today’s All-Ireland IFC club decider it began to look as if we’d have another one to add to the […]
