Women’s team to play Westmeath named

With the lads having a weekend off from competitive action and the hurlers having completed their League campaign, the field is clear tomorrow for the county’s women footballers. And sure why not? Tomorrow is, of course, International Women’s Day. The Mayo women are in LGFA League action tomorrow, their NFL Division One Round 5 clash against Westmeath at Swinford Amenity […]

Sunday match reports

Happy St Patrick’s Day all. This one is even happier as we luxuriate in the afterglow of last night’s super win over Kerry down in Tralee.

They were underdogs in that game, and every game before that but as this year has proved with Connacht and Leicester, the underdog is alive and kicking. Staunton’s big scoreline of 2-14 against Galway was nothing out of the ordinary for the Carnacon woman, […]

Looks like Diarmuid should be good to go for Saturday

Photo: GAA The best-kept secret in the run-up to Saturday’s Round 4B match against Westmeath was the injury concern that eventually ruled Diarmuid O’Connor out of the fixture. I didn’t hear a whisper about it in advance and so the first I knew about Diarmuid’s unavailability was when the murmurings began to spread around the Cusack Stand just before the lads ran […]
