McGrath to run the line in FAI Cup final

Day of destiny for Mayo in Oscar Traynor Cup

It's a simple task for Mayo on Sunday: win the game and book their place in the last eight of this season's Oscar Traynor Cup; while for Galway all they need is a point to reach their the last eight.

Kenny makes his bow as Mayo boss

It has been changing times in Mayo over the past few years and one person who has seen more change than most has been Brendan Kenny. The Ballina Town manager only took over the post on a part time basis until a new boss was to be appointed a couple of years ago, but he has hung on in there. His first few months in charge saw Town go on a long journey to the latter stages of FAI Junior Cup. This season his north Mayo charges have the Super League in their grasp thanks to a comfortable win over Manulla last weekend. Win their last league game of the season and the deal is done, nothing the chasing Westport United men can do about it.

Tricky Terryland test for Kenny’s Mayo

There might be some pre Christmas pleasantries before kick off in Terryland Park tonight, but once the whistle is blown it’s do or die for the Mayo League’s Oscar Traynor Cup team. Following on from their win over the Inishowen league in the opening round of the competition, progression to the knock out stages of the competition is all down to this game for both sides. A draw will do Mayo thanks to their superior goal difference, but that’s something Mayo manager Brendan O’Connor is not thinking about. “Yah, a draw will do us on Friday night, but we are not going to approach the game like that at all, we’re going out to win on Friday night. If you go looking for a draw at the start of a game you are just setting yourself up for a fall, if we get it all and good, but we are going out to win the game.”
