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. On the club Championship front, however, we’re set for sizzling conditions over the weekend, with semi-final action taking place at Senior, […]

Weekend’s fixture details confirmed

All the fixture details for this coming weekend’s semi-finals in the Senior, Intermediate and Junior football Championships have been confirmed, as have the Senior and Intermediate relegation deciders. MacHale Park is where the action will happen in the SFC and IFC, with a double-bill of semi-finals featuring the two competitions taking place at the county venue on both Saturday and […]

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 […]

Champs crash out, Breaffy best Ballagh

I’ve said it before but it merits saying it again – this is the best Mayo football Championship in ages. 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

The club Championships within the county move up a few gears this weekend, with the start of the knockout action at Senior, Intermediate and Junior levels. 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 […]

Local action goes national

The club Championship quarter-finals are on this coming weekend and it was announced today that RTÉ will be showing two of the SFC games live on Saturday evening. It’s a good call by the national broadcaster. The Mayo SFC doesn’t always make for compelling, high quality entertainment but this year’s Championship has, so far, been the best one in ages. […]

Early morning decision on tomorrow evening’s match

Mayo GAA have just announced that a decision will be made early in the morning about whether or not tomorrow evening’s match against Kerry will go ahead as scheduled. That decision will, according Mayo GAA, be made in conjunction with Croke Park. Here’s the announcement that’s been issued: In relation to tomorrow’s Allianz league game between Mayo & @Kerry_Official a […]

Croí jersey for tomorrow night’s match unveiled

The one-match-only Mayo jersey that the team will be wearing in tomorrow night’s National League Division One game against Kerry at MacHale Park (throw-in 7.15pm) has been revealed. That’s it in the image above and very nice it looks too. Kudos to Croí, Mayo GAA and Elvery’s for helping to make this initiative happen. Don’t forget that tomorrow evening’s match […]

Croí set to be at the heart of the Kerry match on Saturday week

All thoughts are, I know, currently focused firmly in the direction of the border and Sunday’s NFL Round 4 meeting with Monaghan at St Tiernach’s Park in Clones. That’s a big one for us but so too is the clash the following weekend back on home turf at MacHale Park against All-Ireland finalists Kerry. To tie in with the Kerry […]
