Nothing junior about this weekend

Fri, Sep 29, 2023

The race to follow in the footsteps of last year's winners Islandeady will step up a few gears this weekend when the quarter-finals of the TF Royal Hotel and Theatre Mayo GAA Junior Football Championships get down to business.

On Saturday afternoon at 2pm in Swinford, Shrule-Glencorrib will get to grips with Ardagh in a battle for a spot in the final four of the competition. The south Mayo men topped their group with wins over Tourmakeady, Northern Gaels and Ballycastle, while Ardagh made it out of their group courtesy of a win over Achill and loss to Cill Chomain. Ardagh will be hoping that Lee Traynor can get some heavy scoring under his belt, if James Carr is as expected will be unavailable - while for Shrule-Glencorrib Evan Cawley has been their go-to man on the scoreboard and will need to hit those high notes once again.

Plenty to play for in intermediate final round

Fri, Sep 15, 2023

The Mayo GAA Egan Jewellers Intermediate Football Championship is proving to be tight as always as we head into the final round of group games, with plenty still to play for for the majority of clubs.

In group one Park-Keelogues-Crimlin are heading to the last eight on the back of their two wins to date over Davitts and Islandeady respectively and they will be wrapping up their round robin series with a clash against a Bonniconlon side heading for the relegation play-offs in Bofennaun on Sunday lunchtime. The West Mayo men have impressed so far and with a place in the last eight secured, they could take the opportunity to change things up a bit before they head into the knock-out stages, but they won't want to stop that winning momentum.

GAA: Mayo GAA IFC Round One- Who'll pass the toughest test in intermediate

Fri, Aug 18, 2023

The ad men for the sponsors of the All Ireland Minor Championships came up in recent years with the tag line 'This is Major' for their advertising campaign - to emphasise how important the minor championship is for its young stars. Well, for each of the teams battling to become Mayo GAA Intermediate champions, there is no tougher competition to call in Mayo football than the intermediate championship, with at least a dozen, if not all 16 sides, having their eyes set on taking the big prize.

In group one on Saturday evening, Davitts who were relegated from the senior championship last year, will face off against a Parke-Keelogues-Crimlin side, who every year put it up to the best in this grade and continue to develop. Ballindine is no easy place to go and the south Mayo men will be hoping to make that advantage count in this one. In the other game in the group, the freshly minted Junior champions from last year, Islandeady, will be hosting a Bonniconlon side, who have been making good strides in recent times - the feel good factor from last year and a good league campaign could tip the balance in the home side's favour.
