Mayo GAA news, views and over a century of results

Details of upcoming fixtures confirmed

The GAA today confirmed details of its refixed inter-county calendar for 2020 – details here. This covers both what’s left of the League and all of the match in the Championship, incorporating as well the various secondary competitions in hurling (on which a small bit anon). For us, the fun is set to start in Tuam Stadium three weeks from […]

Another time, another place

This afternoon at Páirc Seán MacDiarmada in Carrick-on-Shannon our Connacht Championship campaign was meant to get underway. Of course, like so much of life nowadays, that fixture, along with plans for the entire Championship, has been mothballed. Today’s scheduled meeting with Leitrim would certainly have had a novel air about it. We’ve only met Leitrim once in Connacht since the […]

Women’s team to play Westmeath named

With the lads having a weekend off from competitive action and the hurlers having completed their League campaign, the field is clear tomorrow for the county’s women footballers. And sure why not?

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 […]

Minors open with decisive win

The county’s Minors began their Connacht Championship campaign with a Round 1 win over Leitrim at Ballinamore this evening. Leading by 0-8 to 0-4 at half-time, Tomás Morley’s charges pulled away after the break to win decisively by 1-20 to 0-6. Early points from Ethan Murphy (two), Aidan Cosgrove and Paddy Heneghan settled us well into this contest and gave […]

Future plans – Mayo News football podcast 2019 E19

With the New York trip now over, it’s time to look ahead and in the latest episode of the Mayo News football podcast we do this in two respects. First, we focus on the next challenge Mayo will face in this year’s championship and then we look at the very positive coaching and development work that’s underway within the county. […]
