LGFA and hurling action on this weekend

Another weekend, another storm roaring in off the Atlantic. Will Storm Dennis prove as disruptive to fixtures over the next two days as Ciara was last weekend? I guess we’ll find out soon enough. This weekend’s a rest one for the lads in the National League and so, from a Mayo perspective, the matches of interest involve the women’s footballers […]

U20s win Leo Murphy Cup, hurlers start with a loss

It was a case of contrasting fortunes for the first two Mayo teams in action this weekend. The county’s U20 footballers rounded off a productive Development League campaign with an emphatic win over Louth in the final of the Leo Murphy Cup competition but the Mayo hurlers were well beaten by Kerry in their opening round NHL Division 2A fixture. […]

Loads of action this weekend

Saturday night sees the long-awaited start of the National Football League – in which we open the defence of the title we won at Croke Park last March – but our Round 1 opener against Donegal at MacCumhaill Park in Ballybofey that evening isn’t the only Mayo-related action on this weekend. Far from it. In fact, there are no fewer […]

Tooreen were ranks outsiders this afternoon against the Cork club at O’Connor Park in Tullamore. Despite […]

This weekend’s action

There are two matches of interest this coming weekend from the county’s perspective. One is a big club Championship fixture in hurling while the other see the county’s U20 footballers get their first run-out of 2020. It’s Tooreen, of course, who are involved in the hurling match, which is an All-Ireland Intermediate club Championship semi-final tie against Fr O’Neill’s of […]

Connacht crowns for Kilmaine and Tooreen

Meat Loaf reckoned that two out of three should never be considered a bad return. So it was this weekend with Mayo teams involved in Connacht club finals, as Kilmaine and Tooreen claimed provincial titles while The Neale came up short in their Connacht decider. Kilmaine’s match – the Connacht Junior club final against Sligo’s St Michael’s – was the […]

Provincial club finals coming up

More club dates for your diaries, this time involving matches with some silverware on offer. This coming Saturday at MacHale Park, the Connacht Intermediate and Junior football finals are being contested. The county has skin in both games, with Kilmaine bidding for provincial glory in the JFC decider while neighbours The Neale have their sights set on the Connacht IFC […]
