    Round 4 Qualifier

    Mayo 2-13 Galway 1-13


    Mayo are now through to the Super 8's and will face Kerry next Sunday in Killarney at 4pm.

  • Mayo selector Tony McEntee has been hit with a proposed two month suspension, while the Mayo and Galway County Boards have been fined €4,000 each after an investigation into a prolonged incident in last Sunday’s game between the sides.

    According to this morning’s Irish Independent, McEntee has the facility to seek a hearing for the proposed ban under rule 7.2(c) which governs misconduct by team officials.

  • Mayo are through to the Connacht Under-20 Football final following last night's 1-25 to 1-6 win over Sligo in Castlebar.

    The defending champions will face Galway in next Wednesday's final in Tuam.

    Galway beat Roscommon by 17-points to 1-7 in Kiltoom.

    Mayo controlled proceedings last night from the outset and led by ten points at the break.

    Evan O’Brien was the star of the show kicking six points from midfield with corner forward Tommy Conroy executing five terrific scores.

    Sligo missed a penalty on 26 minutes but the Mayo defence put in a solid display to run out convincing 19 point winners with their goal coming from Oisin Mullin on 56 minutes.

    Aidan Orme and Stephen McGreal accounted for three points each, with a brace from from both Paddy Goldrick and Gavin Durcan. John Gallagher, Paul Towey, Mark Moran and Nathan Moran all got a point each as well.

    Mayo finished the game with 14 men after substitute Nathan Moran was shown a black card in the 58th minute, by which stage they had used up all their allowed substitutions. 

    Sligo’s goal came from Sean Carroll but it wasn’t enough to derail the defending Connacht Champions who will now face Galway in Tuam Stadium next Wednesday night at 7.30pm.

  • Round 4 of the Connacht U17 championship takes place this evening as Mayo travel to Tuam to take on Galway. Manager Tomas Morley names the same team which beat Sligo last weekend in Castlebar. Another another win is vital for Mayo if they want to progress to next months Connacht final.
