Ladies bow out

The Mayo ladies’ Championship campaign ended in windswept conditions at Parnell Park up here in Dublin this afternoon. Their Group 4 match with Armagh at the Donnycarney venue was a winner-takes-all affair, with both teams having already beaten Tyrone so the prize on offer for the winners was a place in the All-Ireland semi-final. Armagh it was who won, by […]

The weekend’s matches

It’s already time to start thinking about the Championship matches involving the county that are on this coming weekend. There are three of them, all of the knockout variety, and there’s also some silverware up for grabs. All three games are available to watch this weekend and Midwest Radio will be providing commentary on them too. Let’s look at the […]

Monday match reports

It’s Monday morning so that means it’s time for a quick gallop through the coverage that’s online about our match yesterday. A good one it was too from our perspective – with Cork’s sensational extra-time win over Kerry keeping us nicely away from the limelight – as we qualified for the Connacht final for the first time in five years. […]

Rowe on fire as ladies thump Tyrone

Today’s Championship opener was the first match the Mayo LGFA team had played since March but there wasn’t a trace of lethargy in their performance. Far from it, in fact, as they positively blew away Tyrone this afternoon at Pairc Sean MacDiarmada in Carrick-on-Shannon, winning by 4-17 to 0-4. Leading the charge for the ladies today in Carrick was Sarah […]

Best of luck to the ladies today

This match takes place at Pairc Sean MacDiarmada in Carrick-on-Shannon where throw-in is set for 1pm today. The game is being streamed live on the Ladies Football […]

This weekend’s matches

Once again it’s time to start thinking about the weekend to come and the Championship games that are set to be contested. The hurlers have this one off, as their Rackard Cup semi-final isn’t scheduled to take place until Saturday week (14th November). In that game, by the way, they’ll face either Leitrim or Longford, with those two set to […]

Coverage for this weekend’s matches

Seeing as it’s Tuesday we’re officially no longer allowed to mope any more about Sunday’s result but are compelled instead to look ahead to the matches that are down for decision this coming weekend. And sure why shouldn’t we be looking to the future? It’s Hallowe’en so it must be a Championship weekend. There’s Championship action on in both hurling […]

LGFA County title for Kiltimagh, Shield wins for Burrishoole, Ballyhaunis

There was more LGFA Championship action on today so here’s a quick round-up on the three matches played. Before that, it’s worth pointing to the photo at the top, which was taken yesterday evening in Kilmovee, after the team came home following their Intermediate Championship victory at MacHale Park earlier in the day. Team captain SinĂ©ad Cafferkey was obviously enjoying […]

Ballyhaunis topple Tooreen, Carnacon win again

Hunger is a great sauce or so they say. By the sounds of it, Ballyhaunis were the hungrier and more driven side in this afternoon’s county Senior hurling decider which was played at Adrian Freeman Memorial Park in Tooreen. The four-in-a-row chasing hosts may have been the strong favourites coming into this game but their neighbours were up for the […]
