With all matches taking place behind closed doors this weekend, the only chance supporters have of seeing some live action in the county’s club Championships will be to tune in online.
Happily, a good few matches are being streamed live, both by Mayo GAA via its Mayo GAA TV service and by some clubs themselves.
Just to recall, tomorrow’s matches on Mayo GAA TV are those between Castlebar Mitchels and Westport (5pm) and Knockmore v Ballina (7pm). Match passes for these two games are available to purchase here. On Sunday it’s Kiltimagh v Bonniconlon (1pm) and Belmullet v Garrymore (4pm). Match passes for these two games are available to purchase here.
Mayo GAA also announced today that Cáirde Mhaigheo season tickets holders will be able to stream all four of this weekend’s featured games free of charge. Details on what you need to do to avail of this offer are here.
These are tough times all round and it’s hard for loyal GAA supporters not to be able to go and see their local club in action. This very welcome gesture by Mayo GAA will help ease the pain for many and it deserves to be applauded as such.
Others are also doing what they can to keep supporters tuned into the action this weekend.
I mentioned yesterday that the Charlestown/Breaffy game tomorrow evening (5pm) is being streamed on YouTube, courtesy of Charlestown (here). I’ll grab the embed code for that stream from YouTube and run the game as a live event on here as well, which hopefully will make it a bit easier for more to see it.
The Davitts/Ballintubber match at 7pm tomorrow evening is being streamed live on Ballintubber’s Facebook page. Also at 7pm tomorrow the Ballyhaunis/Lahardane game is being streamed live on Lahardane’s Facebook page. I’ve no links for either and Facebook don’t provide embed codes for use on third-party websites so I won’t be able to run either of those here.
I will, though, be able to do this for the Ardnaree/Castlebar Mitchels IFC clash on Sunday, as this one is being streamed live on YouTube.
I’ll add to this post if I get word of other matches that are being shown online tomorrow.
UPDATE: The Aghamore/Moy Davitts game at 7pm this evening (Saturday) is being streamed on the Aghamore Facebook page.
