  • Barry Cassidy from Derry has been confirmed as the referee for Sunday’s Connacht Senior Football Final.

    Galway captain Damien Comer has been ruled out of Sunday’s Connacht SFC final against Roscommon.

    Comer has not played a single minute of football for Galway in 2019, his absence stemming from an ankle injury incurred during a St Stephen’s Day soccer game.

    The game in Salthill will be preceded by the Connacht Junior Football Final between Galway and Mayo at 1pm.

    Mayo will be vying to win their first Connacht title at this grade since 2016.

  • Barry Moran is to retire from inter-county football. The Castlebar Mitchels clubman is due to take up a position with his job for two years and has decided to retire from the inter-county scene. However he will remain on playing with Castlebar Mitchels for the next while.

    Moran made his inter-county debut for Mayo in 2005 against Roscommon.

  • There was a big shock in the Mayo Junior A Football Championship last night as Achill were knocked out and now find themselves in a relegation play-off.

    Elsewhere in Group 2 last night Westport B recorded a huge 6-17 to 0-06 point win over Ardagh.

  • County Senior Semi-Final
    Breaffy 1-13
    Ballaghaderreen 1-10 

  • Mayo legend Andy Moran has announced his retirement from inter-county football.

    The 2017 footballer of the year will now focus on his club team Ballaghaderreen.

    Moran made the decision with manager James Horan yesterday.

    He had a remarkable career with Mayo swinging the tide in the infamous 2006 All-Ireland semi-final with Dublin.

    His recovery from a 2012 cruciate knee injury highlighted the resilience of Moran as a player and as a man.

    He got his first bit of National silverware this year as he reaped the League title with Mayo.

    As a key forward, play-maker and ball-winner in the Mayo set-up, Moran's departure will be heavily felt next season.

  • Brendan Rice from Down has been confirmed as the match referee for the Lidl Ladies National Football League Division 1 encounter between Dublin and Mayo on Saturday evening.

    Both games will be live on Midwest Radio Sport.

  • The Brisbane Lions said farewell to teammate Cian Hanley today after the Category B Rookie decided to return to his homeland of Ireland.

    The 21-year-old made the difficult decision to part with the Club after experiencing personal challenges over the past 12 months. Hanley said it was the right decision for him to return home.

     “The club has been unbelievable, I’m very appreciative of what they’ve done over the last while. It’s no fault of theirs I’m going home,” Hanley told lions.com.au.

    “It’s just more me and personal reasons and I just think it’s the right time to go.” 

    Over the past few months, Hanley has had many discussions about his future with family, friends and the Club, working through all possible options to come to the best outcome for him and his family.

    General Manager of Football David Noble said the team will miss Cian's personality and tremendous work ethic. 

    “Cian has been one of our hardest workers over the last three years particularly, overcoming injury and personal adversity with such a professional attitude, it is very sad to see him go home. We will miss his infectious smile, his positive attitude and bubbly contribution to our Club. We wish him a safe trip back home to Ireland where he will reconnect with his family.” Noble said.

    Hanley followed older brother Pearce, a former Lion, to the Club in late 2014 after being selected with the 56th pick in the Rookie Draft.

    His first two seasons were crippled with injuries but in 2017 he played an important part in the NEAFL team’s premiership victory.
