Monday match reports

Photo: It’s like bloody Groundhog Day here – another Monday morning when I’m rushing out the door before too long but first have to sort a whole pile of match coverage about a game we lost. Punxsutawney Phil’s going to get it in the neck shortly if he’s not careful.

Four from four for the hurlers

Another date with Dublin

Image: @MayoGAA Saturday night is fast approaching and, with it, yet another joust for us with Dublin. Throw-in for the match in MacHale Park is 7pm that evening and the ref is Roscommon’s Paddy Neilan. The ladies’ Division One League match is on beforehand, that one throws in at 5pm. I usually find this previewing-the-opposition post good for refreshing my […]
