Galway review – Mayo News football podcast 2019 E8

Memories of the bright start Mayo made to this year’s League campaign are starting to fade quickly, with those three opening wins now followed by back-to-back Division One defeats. This latest reversal, at home to Galway, continues what is now a long run of defeats to the neighbours and, for James Horan, it marks a first ever loss to them […]

Mayo 0-12 Galway 1-11: frustrating loss as second half surge stalls

That was more than a little frustrating. With fifteen minutes left on the clock, we’d reduced the deficit to just a single point and all the game’s momentum in our favour, aided by the strong wind at our backs, all we needed to do was drive on and win it. Instead, we lost our way entirely and Galway righted themselves […]

Game day – get back to winning ways

Another Saturday evening of football beckons, another double-header of League Division One matches featuring the ladies and the lads. Galway provide the opposition in both matches at MacHale Park, with the LGFA one throwing in at 5.15pm while the lads get going at 7.15pm. After last weekend’s loss to Dublin, tonight’s clash with the Tribesmen is an important one for […]

Support Regina’s fight for life

It goes without saying, of course, that there’ll be a keen sense of rivalry between ourselves and the neighbours at MacHale Park tomorrow evening. In one important respect, however, those converging on Castlebar for the game should make it their business to be on the same side. Many of you will already know of Regina Duffy’s story. The Westport native, […]

Rossies sound warning ahead of Saturday evening

The prevailing narrative for some time has been that our 2019 League Division One campaign starts with a nice, handy opening fixture. Roscommon’s impressive five-point win over a strong Galway line-up in this afternoon’s FBD League final, however, sounds a timely warning about our taking next Saturday evening’s match for granted. Reports on Roscommon’s 0-13 to 1-5 over Galway in […]
