Meeting point for Westmeath vs. Mayo - Greville Arms Hotel, MullingarSunday’s hard-fought win vs. Kerry saw Mayo ease themselves into a more comfortable position on the Allianz National Football League Division 1 table, and it’s all to play for now.

Next Sunday it’s a trip to Mullingar to take on Westmeath who, under the stewardship of Paul Bealin (of the ’95 All-Ireland winning Dublin team) are struggling to find their feet in Division 1. Fighting for survival in the top flight, Westmeath will have nothing to lose, and everything to gain, so while Mayo should in theory comfortably take the points, this fixture is by no means a foregone conclusion.

Round 4 is nearly upon us already, and without further ado let’s get the ball rolling for next weekend’s meetup. The venue is the Greville Arms Hotel on Pearse St., Mullingar, just a few minutes’ walk from the ground. Throw-in is at the slightly later time of 2.30pm this week so an extra half hour in bed. There’ll be complimentary finger food upstairs in the Ulysses Bar, courtesy of the very helpful crew in the Greville Arms. There’ll be a carvery lunch available downstairs for hungry travellers and by all accounts they do a fine cup of tea. 🙂

Club ’51 will be in situ in the Greville Arms from 11.30am or so (we like to get the best seats in the house) and for those of you driving, there is parking to the rear of the hotel, there’s a public car park beside it (free on Sundays) and on-street parking.

Club ’51 inside the ground

On Sunday, we’d really like to try and get Club ’51 together inside the ground as well as out – after all, that’s what Club ’51 is all about! –  and the more of us there are in one spot, the more solid the support. With that in mind, we’ll be congregating in the reception area at 1.50pm to make our way to the ground in plenty of time, and we’d love you to join us. At away games we tend to locate ourselves in the same area of the stand, with the tunnel immediately to our left, so if you don’t make the meet-up, you’ll find us there.

Safe trip to all of you making the journey and we’ll see you there on the day.

Meeting point for Tyrone v Mayo – Silver Birch Hotel, Omagh

Meeting point for Tyrone v Mayo – Silver Birch Hotel, Omagh

So Round 2 of the Allianz National Football League is nearly upon us already, and after a pulsating contest in Newbridge on Sunday last, we have another mouthwatering clash in store this weekend as we head for Omagh to take on Mickey Harte’s Red Hands. (That sounds a bit wrong, doesn’t it?) Get ready for another competitive clash – it’s Tyrone v Mayo time.

Anyway, Mayo Mick has suggested the Silverbirch Hotel in Omagh as a meeting point before the game. It’s located on the main Omagh to Gortin Road, on the way to Healy Park on the right hand side and has a large car park. From there it’s about half a mile, or a 10-minute walk to the ground. Parking near the ground is scant and is usually roadside.

There’ll be a few of the Club ’51 crew in the hotel from about 12pm getting the tea and sangwiches in prior to throw-in. Anyone interested in joining us to make some noise in Healy Park, the plan is to congregate in the Silverbirch and head down to the game in good time to get a spot.

So do join us, bring a flag or two, and help us to get #SeaofGreenAndRed off to an early start this year! Safe travels to all of you making the trip – and of course to those of you heading towards Croke Park to cheer on Kiltane – we’ll be there in spirit.
