Monaghan review – Mayo News football podcast 2020 E7

Mayo travelled to Clones on Sunday seeking to claim two valuable League points but, coming up against a well-drilled and hard-working Monaghan outfit, they were forced to come away from this Round 4 game empty-handed. With just three points on the board heading into the final three matches, James Horan’s team now face a battle to avoid the drop from […]

Game day – this would be a great one to win

We’re racing through this year’s League campaign and by this evening four rounds of matches will be played. Today’s clash with Monaghan up in Clones is no more or no less important than any of our other Division One matches this year but, all the same, a win today would represent a significant statement by us. We’re underdogs heading to […]

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 […]
