Two losses and a draw

I think it’s safe to say that the weekend’s results for the three county teams that were in action didn’t go the desired way. On Friday evening the Minors went under to Sligo in Round 3 of the Connacht MFC, losing out at Markievicz Park by 0-16 to 0-12. It was our lads’ first defeat of the campaign, as well […]

Arrangements for tomorrow evening

I’m in a bit of an odd mindset ahead of tomorrow evening’s match against Roscommon, for the simple fact that I’m not going to be there. Nor have I any hope of following the game from a distance either. Lookit, it’s not the first Championship match involving us that I’ve missed in recent years. Doubtless it won’t be the last […]

Feast of football on Saturday

This can often be an odd time of the year from a football perspective, with the Championship up and running but at the same time not enough action to get your teeth into. That shouldn’t be a complaint for punters heading to MacHale Park on Saturday. It was announced yesterday that county teams will be in action in three different […]

U20 action gets going

All the talk this Bank Holiday weekend has understandably been about events over in New York. Back in Ballina today, meanwhile, Mike Solan’s U20 side made their first appearance of the year, as preparations start to ramp up ahead of the 2019 Championship. Arrangements for last year’s inaugural U20 Championship were a bit harum-scarum. Some provinces – including Connacht – […]

Mayo News football podcast 2018 – All-Ireland U20 final review

The third and final Mayo News football podcast of the season featuring the county’s U20s focuses on yesterday’s All-Ireland final defeat to Kildare. On a dramatic afternoon at Croke Park the lads were left with plenty to talk about. Host Rob Murphy is joined by Ger Flanagan and Edwin McGreal of the Mayo News to look back on the game. […]

U20s lose out in shootout

The final frontier proved to be a bridge too far for the county’s U20s today at Croke Park. In a highly entertaining and free-scoring decider it was a sharper and more clinical Kildare team that deservedly came out on top, winning the inaugural All-Ireland title at this level by 1-18 to 1-16. Congrats to them and commiserations to our lads, […]

Unchanged team named for U20 final

Both ourselves and Kildare today named their teams for the All-Ireland U20 final. The inaugural national decider at this level throws in at Croke Park on Sunday at 1.15pm where Fermanagh’s Niall Cullen is the ref. We’ve named the same team that lined out in the semi-final against Derry. The side will once again be captained by Ryan O’Donoghue and […]

Mayo News football podcast 2018 – All-Ireland Under 20 final preview

The Mayo Under 20s take the field at Croke Park on Sunday for their All-Ieland final meeting with Kildare, with throw-in set for 1.15pm. Michael Solan’s squad are underdogs but after their fearless and fervent performance in beating Derry in the semi-final they appear to be quietly confident of delivering another underage All-Ireland title for the county. In this final […]

Mayo News football podcast 2018 – Under 20s beat Derry

Páirc Seán Mac Diarmada was the place to be for Mayo football supporters last Saturday afternoon. Those who made it to Carrick-on-Shannon got to witness a pulsating All-Ireland U20 semi-final contest, in which Mayo’s young guns beat off a strong challenge from Derry to emerge the winners by three points. The Mayo News football podcast was there and in this […]
