  • Niall Cullen has been confirmed as the referee for Mayo’s clash with Kerry in Round 6 of the Allianz National Football League on Saturday.

    The Fermanagh official will take charge of the Division 1 meeting in Tralee which starts at 7pm.

    The game will be live on Midwest Sport courtesy of McHugh’s Supermacs & Papa Johns Pizz Ballindine.

  • Mayo will likely be without yet another player for Sunday's Super-8s meeting with Kerry.

    The Connaught Telegraph reports that wing-back Paddy Durcan is the latest to succumb to injury.

    His place is set to go to Donal Vaughan, but leaves Mayo without Durcan, Diarmuid O'Connor and Matthew Ruane for the game in Killarney.

    Throw-in for the match is at 4 o’clock on Sunday and we’ll have live coverage of the game on Midwest Radio Sport with Michael D. McAndrew and Martin Carney, with thanks to JJ Burke Carsales Ballinrobe.

  • Tyrone referee Sean Hurson will be the man in the middle for Mayo and Kerry's opening Super 8's clash in Fitzgerald Stadium, at 4 o'clock on Sunday.

    The Red Hand official refereed the division two final between Donegal and Meath earlier in the year and will officiate the match between James Horan and Peter Keane's men.

    Kerry will look to avenge two league losses to Mayo this year in Tralee and in Croke Park in the league final, while Mayo will look to continue their momentum from the qualifiers and come one step closer to an All-Ireland semi-final place.

    Mayo will play Meath in Croke Park on the following weekend and will host Donegal at home in the final round of the last eight competition.

    You can follow the game live on Midwest Radio, with live commentary from Michael D. McAndrew and Martin Carney with thanks to JJ Burke Car sales Ballinrobe.

  • Mayo and Ballina Stephenites star Evan Regan is set to face an extended spell on the sidelines after he sustained a facial bone fracture and concussion in an incident in Saturday night's Allianz League Round Two clash with Kerry in MacHale Park.

    Full forward Regan was helped off the field after he was taken out by a Kerry defender in the 44th minute of Mayo's loss to the Kingdom and it has been confirmed to Midwest Radio that he is recieving treatment with specialists this week. It has yet to be confirmed how long the forward will be absent for, but it will be a blow to Stephen Rochford's plans with the Ballina man having started and performed well in the final FBD league game and both NFL games so far this season. 

    In a cruel twist of fate, the injury came just two days after the third anniversary of Regan breaking his collarbone in a league game also against Kerry which ruled him out for the rest of that season's league campaign.

    Meanwhile Regan's Ballina team-mate Ger Cafferkey is the only other injury concern from Saturday night ahead of this weekend's clash with Galway. The defender is being monitored for a hamstring injury and a decision will be made on his availability later in the week.
