Mayo Ladies GAA

  • THE Ladies Gaelic Football Association is pleased to confirm the list of 70 teams who will participate in the 2018 All-Ireland 7s tournament, to be played at Naomh Mearnóg and St Sylvesters GAA Clubs in Dublin on Saturday, September 15.

    The annual 7s competition is one of the real highlights on the LGFA calendar and takes place on the eve of the TG4 All-Ireland junior, intermediate and senior finals, which are set for Croke Park on Sunday, September 16.

    Once again, the LGFA All-Ireland 7s competition will see teams battle it out across three grades, with a Championship and Shield competition to be played for in each grade.

    The countdown is now on to TG4 All-Ireland Final weekend and once again, there was huge interest in the All-Ireland 7s.

    The LGFA is delighted to welcome teams from all over Ireland and Britain and, for the first time, an Asian team (Singapore Gaelic Lions) will compete.

    The LGFA would also like to thank all volunteers and officials who will assist and officiate on the day – and host clubs Naomh Mearnóg and St Sylvesters.

  • The Lidl Teams of the 2018 Ladies National Football League have been revealed.

    The players on each of the four divisional selections were nominated by opposition managers after each round of fixtures, and the players who received the most nominations have been included.

    The Division 1 team contains players from no fewer than six counties, with newly-crowned champions Dublin, runners-up Mayo, Westmeath, Donegal, Galway and Monaghan all represented.

    In total, there are three survivors from the 2017 selection, as Galway’s Sinéad Burke has been selected again, along with Donegal pair Karen Guthrie and Yvonne Bonner.

    Beaten Lidl NFL Division 1 finalists Mayo have four players on the divisional 15, with captain Sarah Tierney, Aileen Gilroy, and the Kelly sisters, Niamh and Grace, all included.

    Dublin are next on the list with three players, namely goalkeeper Ciara Trant, corner back Martha Byrne and influential forward Nicole Owens, who scored a last-gasp goal against Galway in the semi-finals to book a place for the Sky Blues in the Parnell Park decider.

    Donegal also have three players on the selection, as Guthrie and Bonner are joined by TG4 All-Star Ciara Hegarty.

    Westmeath defenders Jennifer Rogers and Fiona Coyle are both included and Galway also have two players represented – Burke and team-mate Tracey Leonard, who’s also captain of the Tribeswomen.

    There’s also a slot on the team for Monaghan’s Muireann Atkinson, who’s named at midfield.

    Champions Tipperary lead the way in the Division 2 selection, with five players included. 

    Maria Curley, captain Samantha Lambert, Caoimhe Condon, Jennifer Grant and final player of the match Aishling Moloney all find slots in the Division 2 team.

    Runners-up Cavan are represented by four players – goalkeeper Evelyn Baugh, captain Sinéad Greene, and forward pair Aisling Maguire and Aishling Sheridan.

    Aimee Mackin was named on the Division 1 team last year and the two-time TG4 All Star is one of three Armagh players on this year’s 2018 Division 2 side, alongside Sarah Marley and Aoife McCoy.

    Michelle McGrath (Waterford), Emma Jane Gervin (Tyrone) and Katie Walsh (Sligo) are the other players listed on the 2018 Division 2 team.

    On the Division 3 team, champions Wexford have six players named, including captain and goalkeeper Mary Rose Kelly, and ace forward Catriona Murray, who scored 3-5 in the final victory over Meath.

    The Royals have four players on the team, there are three from Kildare and one each from Offaly and Roscommon.

    The Division 4 team includes four players from recently-crowned champions Wicklow, three representatives each from runners-up Louth and Limerick, two from Antrim and one each from Derry, Fermanagh and Carlow. 

    The players will receive their awards at Croke Park on Friday evening, May 25.

  • In Ladies Football,There are places in the final 4 of the All-Ireland Championship up for grabs at Dr Hyde Park this afternoon with 2 quarter final games down for decision.

    Kerry and Dublin meet in a repeat of last year's All-Ireland semi-final from 5.

    In the preceding game, Connacht Championship finalists Galway and Mayo meet once again.

    That game will be live on Midwest Sport with thanks to Corrigan Stores, Ballintubber.

  • Dublin boss Mick Bohan has made two changes in personnel from the team that drew with Tipperary last weekend for Saturday’s trip to Mayo in Division 1 of the Lidl National League.

    There’s a switch in the full-back line as Éabha Rutledge, a break-out star in 2019, replaces Laura McGinley, while Kate Sullivan is handed a start in attack ahead of Laura Kane.

    Dublin will face Mayo in a double-header at Elvery’s MacHale Park, before the men’s team from both counties do battle at the Castlebar venue.

    Dublin will be targeting their opening win of the 2020 Lidl NFL campaign, after they were held by Tipperary at Ballyboden St Enda’s last Sunday.

    Meanwhile, Mayo boss Peter Leahy has shuffled his pack by making four changes in personnel, as the Westerners chase a second successive win.

    Mayo began with victory over Donegal first time out, and there are starts this time for Saoirse Lally, Dayna Finn and Nicola O’Malley, who make up a new-look full-back line, while Roisin Durkin is named at right half forward.

    From the team that started against Donegal, Noirin Moran, Ciara McManamon, Maria Reilly and Maria Cannon drop out.

    Mayo (v Dublin): Laura Brennan; Saoirse Lally, Dayna Finn, Nicola O’Malley; Kathryn Sullivan, Danielle Caldwell, Ciara Whyte; Clodagh McManamon, Sinead Cafferky; Roisin Durkin, Fiona Doherty, Alannah Duffy; Lisa Cafferky, Rachel Kearns, Natasha Gaughan.

  • Mayo host Donegal at Swinford Amenity Park (2.30pm), with Mayo boss Peter Leahy without the Kelly sisters, Niamh and Grace, and Sarah Rowe in attack, with all three in Australia.

    TG4 All Star Rachel Kearns, who was brilliant for CL MacHale Rovers in the All-Ireland Junior Club Final before Christmas, will lead the Mayo attack from the full-forward line.

    The Mayo team in full is:

    Laura Brennan; Noirin Moran, Danielle Caldwell, Ciara McManamon; Kathryn Sullivan, Clodagh McManamon, Ciara Whyte; Alannah Duffy, Sinead Cafferky; Maria Cannon, Lisa Cafferky, Marie Reilly; Fiona Doherty, Rachel Kearns, Natasha Gaughan.

    A youthful Donegal side make the trip to Swinford with Emer Gallagher and Deirdre Foley providing experience in defence, while ace attacker Geraldine McLaughlin is listed at centre half forward.

  • Cork and Mayo clash on Sunday in a crucial Lidl National League Division 1 fixture.


    Cork can leapfrog Galway and move back into outright top spot with even a draw, while a Mayo win would see three teams locked together on nine points at the head of affairs after four rounds.


    The Cork-Mayo tie fell foul of the weather last weekend, but they’ll look to finally get it done in Mallow on Sunday (2pm).


    Champions Cork will aim to make it four wins from four when they welcome Mayo to Mallow.


    The Leesiders have been impressive thus far in Division 1, and claimed a morale-boosting victory over Dublin at Croke Park last time out.


    Mayo are motoring nicely too, with two wins from three outings, and they’ll look to build on their gritty victory over Waterford, a low-scoring Round 3 encounter played in difficult conditions.


    The Cork team shows one switch, with Sadhbh O’Leary replacing Saoirse Noonan in attack, while Mayo boss Peter Leahy has made no fewer than eight changes in personnel from the team that started in the recent victory over Waterford.


    Saoirse Lally, Éilis Ronayne, Clodagh McManamon, Roisin Durkin, Maria Cannon, Ella Brennan, Natasha Gaughan and Mary McHale all get the nod, with Danielle Caldwell, Ciara Whyte, Kathryn Sullivan, Alannah Duffy, Fiona Doherty, Jennifer Cawley, Rachel Kearns and Amy Halligan dropping out of the team.


    Galway currently lead Division 1 on scoring difference but even a draw for Cork would put them back on top of the pile.


    A Mayo win would make things very interesting, however, as that would see Leahy’s side, Galway and Cork all locked together on nine points.


    A Cork victory would, however, see them well on course for a second successive Division 1 Final appearance, and a seventh in eight seasons.



    Mayo (v Cork): Aisling Tarpey; Nicola O’Malley, Noirin Moran, Saoirse Lally; Éilis Ronayne, Ciara McManamon, Clodagh McManamon; Roisin Durkin, Sinead Cafferky; Maria Cannon, Lisa Cafferky, Maria Reilly; Ella Brennan, Natasha Gaughan, Mary McHale.  

  • At Swinford Amenity Park, there will be a 2.30pm throw-in as Mayo entertain Waterford.

    Mayo boss Peter Leahy has called in goalkeeper Aisling Tarpey for a start, with Laura Brennan sitting this one out.


    Saoirse Lally, Roisin Durkin, Alannah Duffy and Natasha Gaughan all started against Dublin but drop to the bench on this occasion, with Ciara McManamon, Maria Reilly, Jennifer Cawley and Amy Halligan handed starting places.


    There’s also a goalkeeping change for Waterford, with Kelley Moroney given the nod in place of Rosie Landers.


    Elsewhere in the team, there are starts for Maeve Ryan and Maggie Boylan, with Caoimhe McGrath and Kelly Ann Hogan dropping out, making it three changes in total for the Déise.


    Mayo (v Waterford): Aisling Tarpey; Nicola O’Malley, Dayna Finn, Danielle Caldwell; Kathryn Sullivan, Ciara McManamon, Ciara Whyte; Clodagh McManamon, Sinead Cafferky; Fiona Doherty, Maria Reilly, Lisa Cafferky; Jennifer Cawley, Rachel Kearns, Amy Halligan.


  • The Mayo Ladies will face Galway as part of a double header in Croke Park at 2pm on Sunday.

    Ladies boss Peter Leahy will be hoping his side can build on their three-point victory over Armagh by getting revenge over the tribeswomen.

    Leahy realises that his team face a difficult task against the Connacht champions and the Mayo boss acknowledged the quality of their local rivals.

    He praised Galway’s success at underage levels as the basis for their recent revival.

    We'll have live coverage of the game on Midwest Radio with thanks to Corrigan's Stores Ballintubber.
