We’re off to Limerick – to do a job

We’re delighted to welcome Gerry in Laois to the hot seat this week, where he’s giving the last rallying call to the troops before tomorrow. Read and obey!! Take it away Gerry … I think by now we have made our feelings pretty clear on the semi-final replay débâcle. Willie Joe summed it up quite succinctly on Tuesday when he observed that in the eyes of the top brass at Croke Park: “We truly are Children of a Lesser God.” But … Continue reading

Mayo v Kerry – Car pooling to Limerick

There’s been lots of wheeling and dealing over on our ticket swap forum in advance of the weekend. Hopefully by now you all have your tickets sorted, but if not, keep an eye on the site and on our Facebook and Twitter accounts. Photo: Independent.ie Now to get to Limerick! You’ll have seen all the travel  info over on our main page, but in the interests of (a) cutting down on traffic and (b) having the extra bit of craic … Continue reading

We go again … and here’s how to get there

No matter which way you look at it, it’s pretty fair to say that the good old GAA has shafted us a bit this time out by packing ourselves and Kerry off to Limerick for the replay of the All-Ireland semi-final. In a decision that has angered pretty much everyone but Liam “Get On With It” O’Neill (who just couldn’t resist getting personal when Mayo raised objections), both sets of supporters are set for an almighty scramble for both tickets … Continue reading

We brought the colour… We brought the noise…

Wow. Just wow. That’s an experience I’ll not soon forget. I think most of you will have the same view on yesterday. I think we are all immensely proud of our football team. Whatever happens from here on in, nobody, NOBODY, can question the guts, determination and resilience of this group. As for the support on the slopes yesterday. Well, what can anyone say other than bravo. That is the loudest most determined support I have ever heard at a Mayo game. There … Continue reading

Forget getting in “early”. Get in on time!

And here we all are again! This truly is a great time to be a Mayo supporter. The buzz in the lead-up to these games is something only a handful of counties can enjoy and we’ve had this for 4 years running now. Hopefully your plans have all been made. If not, take a look at MayoMick’s post on alternative travel options now that the trains aren’t running. But whatever your plans, do your best to get into Croke Park on … Continue reading

Transport To Croke Park This Sunday

Alternative transport to Croke Park this Sunday 24th of August. As you probably know by now, there is threatened industrial action by Iarnród Éireann workers this weekend the 24th & 25th of August. This makes transport to Croke Park this Sunday all the more difficult for travelling supporters, both from Mayo and Kerry. Services affected include Intercity, DART and commuter routes. If you are intending on driving to Croke Park next Sunday, please remember that there is very limited parking … Continue reading

Overseas Nostalgia

The bauld Ciaran Mac

p5rn7vb Nostalgia week continues with a view from someone living far away cross the ocean , far away o’er the foam.   The life of the Irish expatriate on the European mainland is, on the whole, a happy and fulfilling one. You have chosen to leave home in order to enjoy the opportunities afforded by a job abroad and you can enjoy the culture of your adopted country and still, thanks to low cost air travel, return home on a … Continue reading

The First of Many

Kenneth Conway is our latest contributor to our “Nostalgia Week”. I’ve just this second made that up, but it works. So it’s Nostalgia Week from now on. Take it away Kenny! I’m a 19 year old and for someone of such a young age I have seen and been at an amount of Mayo games you would need a few sets of hands to count and even then you might need an extra hand or two. I have been going to Mayo … Continue reading

Let’s be real … we all want the same thing

In the next of our series of guest posts, we’d like to welcome Shamrocks (yes, of course that’s his real name) to the hot seat to take us on a journey from past to present. For those of you who remember ’89, this will bring back some magic memories. An unorthodox Mayo man of sorts, born in England and brought up in a rural north Wicklow village ’til I was 11 years of age, before moving to the homeland of Mayo. My … Continue reading
