  • TG4 Ladies All-Ireland Senior Championship

     

    Group 3 - Round 1

    Galway 1-14 Kerry 1-10

     

    Group 4 - Round 1

    Mayo 3-14 Tyrone 3-11

  • The Mayo ladies face a do-or-die tie with Donegal in the final round of the All-Ireland group stages.

    With a win over Tyrone in their first outing, a win or a draw will be enough to see Peter Leahy’s women over the line and into the All-Ireland quarter-finals.

    It would also see them top their group and go into the next round on the favourable side of the draw, avoiding Cork and setting up a likely meeting with Cavan.

    The Mayo ladies take on the Ulster champions at half past one on Saturday in Tullamore, with live coverage on TG4.

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

    The game will take place on Saturday week August 10th at 1pm.

    It will play part of a double header to Galway and Waterford which gets underway at 2.45pm.

     

  • The Mayo Ladies will be without star basketballer Dayna Finn this weekend for their clash with Armagh in the All-Ireland quarter-finals.

     

    The Mayo footballer is playing with the Ireland U20 women’s team in Round 2 of the 2019 FIBA U20 Women’s European Championship Division B in Kosovo.

     

    The Kiltimagh and Mayo Ladies star is vice-captain and the danger woman for the side as they move into the second round of the competition.

     

    Ireland completed the opening round of the tournament unbeaten, topping their group with wins over Ukraine and Great Britain over the weekend.

     

    Now, they face into the second round where they go head-to-head with Israel at 3;30 today and Croatia 6pm tomorrow, with a spot in the semi finals up for grabs.

     

    Mayo manager Peter Leahy described her absence from his team this weekend as a huge loss.
