  • Donegal GAA has confirmed that Stephen Rochford is joining the senior football team’s backroom staff.

    In a statement this afternoon Donegal GAA says that Karl Lacey, Anthony McGrath and John McElhome are leaving the backroom team and former Mayo manager Stephen Rochford is joining Declan Bonner’s coaching staff for 2019 along with Aaron Kyles.

  • 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. 


  • Elverys MacHale Park Castlebar will play host to a double header tomorrow evening.

    At 6.30pm the Connacht Junior Football Quarter Final will see Mayo clash with Roscommon.

    That will be followed by the U17 Football clash involving Mayo & Leitrim at 8pm.

    Galway meet Roscommon in the U17 Championship on Friday night at 7pm in Tuam Stadium.

    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.

  • Mayo can’t be written of just - that’s according to former All -Star with Dublin Coman Goggins.

    James Horan’s side lost to Kerry in their first Super 8 encounter but bounced back last weekend beating Meath in Croke Park.

    They host Donegal in Elvery’s MacHale Park on Saturday the 3rd of August, knowing a win will guarantee them a spot in the semi-finals.

    Goggins told the AIB GAA podcast he would not be surprised if Mayo came up with a strong performance.


  • All-Ireland Senior Football Championship Semi-Final

    Dublin 3-14 Mayo 1-10


    Mayo produced a superb opening half of football to lead 0-08 to 0-06 at the short whistle.

    However, the five in a row chasing Dub's turned on the style in the second half and in a devastating twelve minute spell put this game to bed.

    Jim Gavin's side hit 2-6 in that period and in the end ran out convincing ten point winners.

    Dublin will now meet either Kerry or Tyrone in the decider on September 1st.
