  • Mayo will have to dust themselves down from last weekend’s disappointing defeat in Killarney to focus for the Challenge of Meath in Croke Park this Sunday.

    A win is imperative for James Horan’s side if they are to have any chance in reaching the last four but standing in their way are the Royal County who will go hammer and tongs to try and cause an upset.

    The game is live on Midwest Radio Sport with Michael D. McAndrew and Martin Carney bringing you all the action as it happens.

  • Kildare and Mayo County Boards will each receive 1500 tickets for club distribution for Saturday’s All-Ireland Qualifier game between the sides in Newbridge.

    It follows the decision earlier to switch the game from Croke Park to Newbridge, after Kildare GAA said they would not play the game in Dublin, having been drawn out of the hat first on Monday morning.

    In a statement this afternoon the GAA confirmed the change and said that following discussions with the Kildare County Committee and An Garda Síochána in recent days, upgraded match-day and traffic management plans involving extra stewarding and Gardaí will be put in place to cater for the large crowds expected at the venue before the game.

    The GAA wishes to point out that the decision by the CCCC to fix the game for Croke Park originally was based on serious concerns around the health and safety of patrons attending the fixture. The CCCC has received assurances that these issues will be adequately addressed.

    The original capacity of 8,200 remains in place.

    Both county boards will receive 1500 tickets each for club distribution. The remainder will be used to meet the needs of players, season ticket holders and sponsors.

    The GAA has also confirmed that tickets purchased for the double header will not be valid for the refixture and a refund process from the point of purchase has been put in place.

    Supporters without tickets are urged not to come to St Conleth’s Park on Saturday.

    The GAA has also confirmed that the meeting of Cavan and Tyrone will now take place at Brewster Park, Enniskillen.

    Tickets for the games will be priced at 20 euro for adults and 5 euro for juveniles.

  • The GAA will wait until Friday to make a decision on whether this weekend's League games will go ahead.

    There's a full round of fixtures slated for the Football League across Saturday and Sunday.

    While the final round of group games in the hurling league are set to be played on Sunday.

    If they're called off it could prove problematic, with no free weekends between now and the slated Division 1 Hurling Final date of March 24th. It could also prove problematic in Mayo's Division 2B Final, which is down for Sunday March 11th.

    Gardai say a crowd of between 12,000-15,000 is expected at Elverys MacHale Park for the game which throws in at 7pm.

    Gardai are advising those attending to arrive as early as possible and not to park on the N5 road – instead they should use the official car parks in the town and at the Military Barracks.

    If people are intending to walk to the ground they should wear florescent jackets so they are plainly visible.

    Supporters are asked to co-operate with Gardai and stewards on duty for the game.

    They are also advising that tickets are on sale prior to the match at local Super Valu and Centra outlets, at the early bird price of €15, as opposed to €20 on match day.

  • Mayo manager James Horan is not concerned by the quick turnaround his side faces against Dublin this weekend.

    Dublin effectively rested many of their key men last weekend in their surreal Super 8's clash with Tyrone.

    Mayo have played seven championship games so far this season as they traversed the qualifiers and the Super 8's.

    Horan disregarded suggestions that Jim Gavin's charges will be fresher than his side on Saturday evening.

    After the Donegal game he said their focus was on tweaking improvements in their performance ahead of the Dublin match.

  • Since tickets went on sale at 10 o’clock there have been large queues across Supervalu and Centra stores throughout the morning.

    Dublin and Mayo’s clash in Croke Park is expected to be a sell-out and fans from across the county have queued online for the first championship meeting of the sides since 2017.

    Ballyhaunis Supervalu has a constant queue of 30 people since 10 o’clock this morning.

    We have received pictures of substantial queues in Castlebar Supervalu and in Ballyhaunis Supervalu, where there has been a constant stream of 30 people since 10 this morning.

    People trying to access tickets online have been having serious difficulty, with some people queuing online on Tickets.ie for more than two hours.

    Tickets.ie took to their twitter account to apologise for the delays, saying:

    “Tickets for both semi finals are still on sale - retail and online.

    There are no issues with the listing however there is a queuing system in place to manage the very high volume of traffic on the website.

    We do apologize for any inconvenience caused and hope you get your tickets.”

    People have been taking to social media to complain about server errors as the website appears to struggle with the volume of ticket requests.

    With the Dubs on a quest for five in-a-row, moral and expectation is still high across the county.

  •  

    In the Eirgrid All-Ireland Under-20 championship semi-final, Mayo will take on Derry in Carrick on Shannon on Saturday at 4pm.

    In the other semi-final, Kildare will meet Kerry in Limerick - also at 4pm Saturday.

     

  • James Horan has been handed a four year term as Mayo Senior Football manager, after he was ratified at a County Board meeting in Castlebar tonight. 

    It was confirmed at the meeting that Daniel Forde will be trainer, Conor Finn S&C, while James Burke and Martin Barrett on also on the backroom team, while Joe Doyle is operations manager.

    In a statement tonight James Horan said: 

    I am delighted to be involved with Mayo and am really looking forward to getting on the field with the players. All clubs (Senior/Intermediate/Junior) within Mayo will be contacted immediately seeking suggestions of players that may have the potential Technical/Tactical/Physical/Mental attributes required for the Inter-county game.

    There has been a coaching movement in Mayo over last number of years that has been staggering in its progression. In conjunction with Clubs & Divisional Boards we have seen huge advances with clubs across the county driving very high standards. That is something I want to be involved with, and help ensure that progress continues. It is busy but very exciting times in Mayo GAA & I cannot wait to get started.

    Also at tonight's meeting Derek Walsh was reappointed Mayo Senior Hurling manager for 2019. 

     

     

     

     

  • It's Mayo v Galway in Munster this weekend as both teams head to the Gaelic Grounds in Limerick for a Round 4 Football qualifier.

    Following that win the team named shows four changes. Into the team comes Michael Plunkett, Stephen Coen, Kevin McLoughlin & Cillian O'Connor with Lee Keegan, Mikey Murray, Conor Loftus & Andy Moran missing out.

  • Former Mayo manager James Horan has played down speculation linking his name with the vacant manager’s job.

    Speaking to today’s Daily Star, Horan says that that he has other things on his mind at the moment.

    He says that inter-county management is incredibly demanding and says that having already done a four year stint previously with Mayo, you have to be careful that it doesn’t take over your whole life.

    Horan says it is not an easy gig and you have to be totally committed to have any chance of making it work. He says since stepping down, he has done various other things, including managing Westport who have reached the last eight of the Mayo Senior Championship.

    He is also finishing a Masters in Coaching through UCC.

    Horan says a return to inter-county management hasn’t been on his short-term radar.

    He told the paper that while his name has been linked with the job since Monday, it wouldn’t be fair to Westport to get drawn into any speculation.

    He also said there is no point in going into inter-county management unless you are fully confident you can do things the way you think they should be done and if he ever was to go back, he wouldn’t do so unless that was the case. He says that is not the environment at the moment.

     

  • Mayo senior football manager James Horan has described the new experimental rules for football as “a little bit crazy”.

    The new playing rules, which have come into effect in recent weeks, came in for more criticism from managers over the weekend and James Horan has admitted he’s not a fan - ahead of Mayo’s FBD League opener against Leitrim on Sunday.

    The Mayo manager says he has no idea how referees are going to manage with the "crazy" new rules brought in for the early part of the season, but he says his side will find a way to cope.
