Monaghan preview – Mayo News football podcast 2020 E6

The weekend just gone saw the first break in the tightly compressed schedule of National League games. Just because Mayo’s footballers weren’t in action, however, this didn’t mean a downing of tools on the Mayo News podcast as well. In this episode of the podcast, we take stock of Mayo’s opening three matches in this year’s Division One campaign and […]

Monday match reports

The wild weather may have meant that the quality of football at Páirc Tailteann yesterday wasn’t hectic but the result we came away with was, from our perspective, pretty satisfying. It’s worth, then, to have a look back at the coverage of our nail-biting one-point victory over Meath. Here’s what’s online about the game, as well as the U20 match […]

Dublin review – Mayo News football podcast 2020 E4

Mayo are in experimental mode this spring but despite this they put up a battling display against an experienced Dublin team at MacHale Park on Saturday evening. Jordan Flynn’s red card early in the game ultimately made the task of beating the All-Ireland champions an all but impossible one, with Dublin’s greater guile enabling them to use the extra man […]

Donegal review – Mayo News football podcast 2020 E3

There was late drama under the lights up at MacCumhaill Park on Saturday night as a last-gasp goal by James Durcan enabled Mayo to claim a draw from a game they looked likely to lose all evening. The result may have been rough justice on the home team but Mayo will have been delighted to come away from Ballybofey with something tangible to […]

Game day – it all starts here

Over five months on from our final competitive outing of 2019 James Horan’s Mayo team tonight take the field in their first meaningful game of 2020. A tasty one it is too, with Donegal the opposition at MacCumhaill Park this evening in the opening round of this year’s National League Division One campaign. Ref David Coldrick is set to throw […]

Loads of action this weekend

Saturday night sees the long-awaited start of the National Football League – in which we open the defence of the title we won at Croke Park last March – but our Round 1 opener against Donegal at MacCumhaill Park in Ballybofey that evening isn’t the only Mayo-related action on this weekend. Far from it. In fact, there are no fewer […]

League preview – Mayo News football podcast 2020 E2

The start of another year of competitive football action starts this weekend with Mayo’s defence of their National Football League title getting underway with a tough away fixture against Donegal on Saturday evening. Ahead of this opening round clash at MacCumhaill Park in Ballybofey the Mayo News football podcast begins its 2020 League coverage with a preview of the spring […]

Club Stars and Galway FBD review – Mayo News football podcast 2020 E1

We’re starting 2020 on the Mayo News football podcast with a mixture of off-field and on-field action. Our first episode of the year focuses on the Club Stars annual awards banquet, which attracted a bumper attendance to the Knockranny Hotel in Westport on Saturday night, before moving onto MacHale Park in Castlebar yesterday afternoon where Mayo took on Galway in […]
