Cork Here We Come

We’re off on the road again, Cork here we come! We’re off on our travels again, this time to Páirc Úi Rínn in the “People’s Republic of Cork”!  The last time Mayo played Cork (it was in Páirc Úi Caoimh) was back in 2013 in round 7 of the league (where we won by a point, 0-10 to 0-11). Who remembers Cillian’s 2 cracking frees from each of the sidelines? Mayo Club ’51 will of course be making the long journey … Continue reading

Bring The Flags, Bring The Noise

mayo flags

Casting our minds back to last Sunday, what a  weekend we had in Derry and what a nail-biting finish.  And what a feeling heading back down the road to know we had two more points in our pocket after hanging on to secure the win. And what about that support? Not for the first time, Mayo away support outnumbered the home sides (significantly so) and the noise in the stand was fantastic. In keeping with that theme, this Saturday sees one … Continue reading
