For the second week in a row Mayo faded out in the second half and were brought to penalties, but this time they were the ones to lose out on spot kicks going down 4-2 to the Tribesmen.
At the end of the day the long and winding road has led back to the destination that most had hoped for, Mayo in the first All Ireland semifinal on Sunday August 21. Rather than coming through to this stage as provincial champions with just a quarter-final to play, Mayo have made their way through the scenic route and disposed of Leinster opposition twice and then the Ulster champions to get here. Next up for them is a challenge from a group of men from Munster, but once again it is not one of the ones we would have expected. Tipperary, a division three side that finished their league campaign just two points above relegation to division four for next year, have wandered their way through this championship summer to become the story of the summer.
An afternoon of music, fine food, fashion, and fabulous company awaits at the world famous Mount Falcon Estate in Mayo on Friday May 6 for the annual Mayo Roscommon Hospice summer ladies luncheon.

The event is in association with Carraig Donn and Corrib Oil.

On Sunday afternoon the FBD really gets serious when Mayo face their first inter-county opponents of the new season when they take on Roscommon in Hyde Park. The action on the sideline will be of as much interest for some observers as what's taking place on the field, with Kevin McStay, the man who wanted the Mayo job in late 2014 and didn't get it, and Stephen Rochford, the man who replaced the duo who got the post over McStay, going face to face. It will also be the meeting of two managers who in the last three years have both guided clubs from Connacht to glory in the All Ireland Senior Club Championship.
The Mayo minor hurlers contest the All Ireland Minor C Hurling final against Tyrone on Saturday in Ballinamore in Leitrim at 2.30pm. This is third year in a row that Mayo have reached this stage of the competition, winning it on both of their last two appearances in the final and beating Monaghan in both of those finals. This year it is Ulster opponents once again for Mayo with the red hand men from Tyrone standing in their way of collecting a three-in-a-row.
GAA patrons in both Galway and Mayo have one thing in common this week: a frantic search for tickets for next Saturday and Sunday’s two sell-out games at Croke Park.
