    St Brendans (Galway) v Westport (Mayo)

  • The disparity in what the GAA gives back per player in each county from its ticket sales in the National Leagues and All Ireland Championship matches, is unfair according to a Mayo Senator.

    Erris based Sinn Fein Senator Rose Conway-Walsh has questioned the GAA president on how and why the decision to increase ticket prices for this year’s Leagues and All-Ireland matches was reached.

    The Senator is concerned that new GAA pricing model could prevent loyal supporters from attending matches, particularly families where a number of tickets need to be purchased.

    She was speaking at a special address to the Seanad by Mr. John Horan, where she raised what she sees as the inequity in prices paid back to clubs per player from ticket sales.

  • Roscommon's Donie Smith has been hit with a proposed one match ban over an incident in last Saturday's Allianz League Division 1 game between Mayo and Roscommon according to the Irish Daily Star. 

    Smith's hand appeared to have made contact with Keith Higgins' eye area. 

    It is unclear if Roscommon will accept the ban - which would rule Smith out of Roscommon's clash with Monaghan on Sunday. 

    The option of a longer ban was open to the disciplinary body but Smith has been hit with a Category Three offence of behaving in any way which is dangerous to an opponent, which carries a minimum one-match ban. 

     

  • Elvery's MacHale Park in Castlebar will play host to two Connacht football championship matches this evening.

    The action gets underway with the meeting of Mayo and Roscommon in the Connacht Junior Football Championship quarter-final at 6.30pm.

    That will be followed by the Connacht U17 Football championship first round clash of Mayo and Leitrim at 8pm.

    The new Connacht Minor Football championship will be run on a round-robin basis this year, meaning the competing counties will be guaranteed at least four games.

    A number of today's Allianz Football League ties have fallen victim to the weather, with more potentially to follow.

    Pearse Stadium passed a pitch inspection this morning so both Mayo & Galway in the Lidl Ladies National Football League and the Allianz Football League will go ahead as planned.

    The ladies game starts at noon while 2pm is the start time for the round 3 clash in the Allianz league game.

    Elsewhere in division one, Monaghan and Kerry is off while Kildare and Tyrone still goes ahead.

    In Division 2 the meetings of Clare and Tipperary, and Roscommon and Down, are both going ahead at present.

    As it stands Cork's game with Louth goes ahead.

    The rescheduled Division 2 clash of Cavan and Meath has again been called off, as well as the Division 3 meeting of Sligo and Fermanagh.

    Elsewhere in Division 3 Armagh face Longford, Derry take on Offaly and Wexford host Westmeath.

    While in Division 4 Antrim take on Wicklow and London face Limerick.

    That game in Ruislip throws in at 1pm, with all the other games underway at 2pm.

    Elsewhere, the Roscommon v Meath Ladies National Football League game has been postponed.

    Stay tuned to Midwest Radio for the latest updates.

  • The GAA, Camogie Association and Ladies Gaelic Football Association (LGFA) are pleased to announce that draft memorandums of understanding have been agreed between the GAA and the Camogie Association, and between the GAA and the LGFA.

    The proposed memorandums seek to establish stronger links between the three organisations and are the result of over six months of separate discussion by the GAA with both organisations.

    The memorandums will become effective only when they have been approved by the Central Council of each organisation. In the case of the Camogie Association, a proposal to approve the memorandum will be discussed at its meeting on Wednesday March 14th, by the GAA on Saturday March 24th and by the LGFA on March 26th.

    The memorandums reflect the shared vision of the three organisations for a new overall organisational model within which the games, ideals and aspiration of all three Associations are equally developed and promoted. They recognise areas of common interest and give the Camogie Association and the LGFA representation on GAA committees, and vice versa. The memorandums have been drafted to a similar template but differ in that they reflect the different stages that the organisations have reached in discussions on developing a new relationship.

    While the proposals in these memorandums aim to strengthen the links within the family of Gaelic Games at national level only, they also commit the three organisations to explore a framework for further integration at provincial, county and club level.

    Uachtarán Chumann Lúthchleas Gael Aogán Ó Fearghail said: “I am delighted to confirm that draft Memorandums of Understanding have been agreed with both Cumann Camógaíochta and Cumann Peile na mBan and the closer worker relationship that these arrangements will give rise to is to be warmly welcomed.
