Mayo Ladies GAA

  • The Mayo Senior Ladies Football Manager says both Tyrone and Armagh are very strong teams.

    Peter Leahy has been giving his reaction to last night’s draw for the Senior Championship.

    Mayo have been pitted against the Ulster sides in Group 4.

    Leahy says the likelihood is they will be playing either Dublin or Donegal in an All-Ireland Semi-Final if they can win their group.

  • Mayo Ladies Manager Peter Leahy has declined to comment on a report this morning that up to ten of his players have walked out ahead of their All Ireland SFC qualifier clash with Cavan on Saturday next.

    The Mayo News today revealed that the Mayo Ladies senior football squad is down ten players.

    Among the players who have withdrawn from the squad are team captain Sarah Tierney, vice captain Fiona McHale and all time leading scorer Cora Staunton.  Team selector Michael McHale has also opted out.

    The Mayo News understands that the players who have left the squad are citing player welfare issues as the reason behind their decision.

    Mayo Ladies GAA Board PRO Susan Rodgers confirmed to the paper that players had left the squad in the last week.

    The team is due to train again tonight before playing Cavan in Clones on Saturday in the first round of the All Ireland Qualifier group stage.

    However, responding to Midwest Sport this morning Mr Leahy said he would not be making any comment on the situation at present. His concentration and focus is on Saturday’s clash.

    He added he will make a comment after that.


  • The Mayo Ladies Football Manager Peter Leahy has hit out at the LGFA for what he describes as ‘outrageous’ treatment which he was subjected to following a walkout by a number of players last summer.

    Speaking to the Irish Independent, Leahy said that he was appalled that the LGFA didn’t make any contact with him during the period the situation was taking place and believes they missed a huge opportunity.

    He says he believes the governing body shot themselves in the foot by allowing his name to be dragged through the mud and believes it sends a worrying message to other men involved in the ladies game.

    Leahy told the paper that he believes it was a huge opportunity for the LGFA to come out and say we are not going to allow players to slander people without facts.


  • As the Mayo ladies prepare to meet Donegal in the opening round of the LGFA National Football League this Sunday, manager Peter Leahy will be without a number of the key players from last year.

    Four Mayo players are currently playing in the AFL Women's League in Australia and will miss much of Mayo's League campaign, while Dayna Finn is abroad with basketball commitments.

    Peter Leahy says they will use the National League to try out new players....

  • Mayo Ladies Football has been plunged into crisis yet again.

    Ten of the twelve members of the Ladies Football Executive board have tendered their resignations.

    An email sent to clubs yesterday afternoon outlined that the 10 executive members were stepping down "with immediate effect" because of dissatisfaction with answers to issues raised at the last board meeting in February.

    They had requested that last night's board meeting be postponed and an emergency general meeting be held on Thursday week 19th March, but say that postponement was not facilitated.

    Outgoing Mayo Ladies PRO Susan Rogers has confirmed to Midwest Radio today that the request for an EGM was granted, and it will be held on 19th March at 8pm in the TF Hotel, Castlebar.

  • Goals in each half from Maria Reilly and Sarah Rowe, combined with a driving performance from the back by Danielle Caldwell helped Mayo book their place in the TG4 All-Ireland Senior Championship semi-final with victory over Armagh.


    Reilly’s goal was the difference at half-time while Mayo took a 1-7 to 0-7 lead into the break at Glennon Brothers Pearse Park. Armagh hit back and Kelly Mallon’s goal helped them into the lead, but Rowe added a second Mayo goal and Mayo took the win.


    Both teams were knocked out of the championship at the quarter-final stage last year, but Mayo made the better start here with Rowe’s free in the second minute, while Grace Kelly quickly doubled their lead.


    Armagh didn’t find their range until midfielder Caroline O’Hanlon, who started at full-forward, scored in the fourth minute. But Peter Leahy’s charges scored the next four points in-a-row with Sinéad Cafferky, Niamh Kelly, Rachel Kearns and Clodagh McManamon combining to earn a 0-6 to 0-1 advantage.

    After nine minutes Mayo had six different scores and they looked to build on that before half-time. The Connacht outfit were in charge but Armagh fought back courtesy of points from Aoife McCoy and O’Hanlon again.


    Mayo should have been further in front but Grace Kelly found the on-rushing Reilly and she blasted past Anna Carr in the 15th minute.

    Mayo were 1-6 to 0-3 ahead but Armagh didn’t let them pull clear with O’Hanlon and Tiarna Grimes reducing the arrears. Niamh Kelly hit the Armagh crossbar while Aishling Tarpey saved well from Grimes and Ciara Whyte drew a fantastic save from Carr down the other end.


    There were nine scoreless minutes until Rowe became the first Mayo player to score twice when she tapped over a free in the 26th minute.

    Armagh were back to 1-7 to 0-6 behind with Kelly Mallon’s first point from a free and Catherine Marley brought it back to a goal before half-time.

    O’Hanlon missed a free on the resumption but did score two frees in the 36th minute. Grace Kelly and Rowe had extended Mayo’s lead.

    Catherine Marley scored her second and then Mallon came up with a stunning goal. She caught the ball tight on the angle but her looping shot nestled in the Mayo net.


    Armagh claimed the lead for the first time in the 41st minute but they needed some big scores to pull clear. Instead Fiona Doherty drew Mayo level again before Rowe scored the key goal.


    Niamh Kelly had been yellow carded and Mayo were on the rocks but with 13 minutes gone in the second half Rowe burst through the cover and finished into the bottom right corner.

    Full-back Caldwell got forward to add her scoring touch but that was cancelled out by O’Hanlon to leave a goal between the teams again.

    O’Hanlon cut the deficit to just two but a Natasha Gaughan free eased Mayo’s worries.


    Mayo will now face Galway in the semi-finals as the Tribeswomen saw off Waterford yesterday on a 1-12 to 2-04 scoreline.

  • It has been confirmed that the Mayo Ladies All-Ireland Quarter Final clash with Armagh will take place in Glennon Brothers Pearse Park, Longford.
