Team news for U20s tomorrow and women’s League match on Sunday

There were two Mayo team announcements made earlier today and here they are. First up is the team named for tomorrow’s Connacht U20 Championship quarter-final against Galway at MacHale Park (throw-in 2pm). The starting fifteen for this all-or-nothing provincial Championship knockout tie is as follows: Mayo (Connacht U20 Championship quarter-final v Galway, 8/2/2020): Jamie McNicoholas (Kiltimagh); Jack Coyne (Ballyhaunis, captain), […]

U20s win Leo Murphy Cup, hurlers start with a loss

The weekend’s action

Tomorrow there’s a choice between club and county, with matches of interest taking place in Ennis and Ballina. At Cusack Park in Ennis Kilmaine face Na Gaeil of Kerry […]
