It’s been another hectic weekend of club Championship action, at the conclusion of which we’re down to the finalists at Senior, Intermediate and Junior levels. In this latest edition of the Mayo News football podcast, we’ve got an array of voices talking about all of the weekend’s action and more besides. Host Rob Murphy is back in the saddle for […]

Classy Knockmore best Ballina

The weather was better today at MacHale Park than it was last night and so too was the Mayo GAA TV live stream which stayed up for the entirety of the two matches played this afternoon. The football was good too, with Knockmore and Balla securing very different kinds of wins in their respective county semi-finals. Knockmore’s win was a […]

Sizzling semi-finals on this weekend

The kids are, at last, back at school, the nights are beginning to draw in with alarming rapidity and the leaves are starting to carpet the ground. Summer’s at an end and the lowering temperatures are evidence of that.

Down to the final four

It was another day of quarter-final action in the Senior, Intermediate and Junior club football Championships today, at the conclusion of which the semi-final pairings have been decided in all three competitions. I didn’t get to see any of the football myself today, though personal business ironically took me to Castlebar this afternoon and so I wasn’t that far away […]

Two local battles played out at an eerily empty MacHale Park were given national treatment this evening, with both games broadcast live on RTÉ2. Two cracking matches they were too. In the evening’s opening Moclair Cup quarter-final clash, the spoils […]

It’s a knockout

There are also a number of crunch relegation play-off games down for decision tomorrow and Sunday. The county will be in the national spotlight tomorrow too, with two of the Moclair Cup quarter-final ties […]
