Now, just a week later, we’re faced with an All-Ireland semi-final. Against The Greatest Time Of All Time to boot. Which means it’s time to run the rule over Dublin and […]

Two Mayo teams were in Championship action today and both of them enjoyed wins in high-scoring encounters. The Minors came out the right side of a 5-12 to 2-19 shootout against Dublin at Pearse Park in Longford while over at O’Connor Park in Tullamore the county’s ladies team got the better of Donegal by 1-22 to 3-12. I’m away right […]
