Competition winner and Darkness Into Light

Competition winner and Darkness Into Light

Over the last few years, as the All-Ireland series rolls around on the bank holiday weekend, you can pretty much guarantee that the usual suspects will be taking part: Kerry, Cork, Dublin, Tyrone, Donegal and of course, Mayo. As you know, last week we asked you to come up with ideas for Club ’51 flags and Lorraine Kelly’s “Usual Suspects” inspired theme was voted the winner by our members. She will be presented with her prize, a Club ’51 T-shirt from the lads at T-Rex clothing. Well done Lorraine!

Tomorrow Club ’51 will be congregating beside the Media Tower, please come and join. Don’t worry if some of the people are a little unfamiliar , that will be exactly how the Derry players will be feeling! We will also be joined by the good volunteers of the Pieta House Darkness into Light Run for Ballina and Westport. We will be hoping to help promote the forthcoming run on our site in the next week.

Judging by the fact that Derry have decided to give their second string a run out we’ll be hoping to put them to the sword and get another day out in Croke Park. Beir Bua!

Club ’51 planning wake-up call to bring passion back for Mayo supporters (Irish Examiner, Sat 29th March)

In the aftermath of a rollercoaster of a game last night against Dublin that will no doubt have us all talking for some time to come, here’s a feature on Club ’51 from yesterday’s Irish Examiner written by Ballina’s own Terry Reilly, after a chat with Anne-Marie during the week. Hopefully for those of you who’ve just recently signed up, it’ll give you some more background on what we’re about and what we want to achieve.

It’s not easy to keep the heads up when things aren’t going well, and as supporters, we are fairly put through the wringer,  but the Mayo support in Croke Park last night was fantastic and we want to keep that momentum going.

We’re cooking up a plan of action for what will now be a crucial game vs. Derry next week and will be in touch during the week with an update.

Have a good week folks and keep the faith – Maigh Eo abú!

The Club ’51 Team

 

Competition Time! Flag Design

Competition Time! Flag Design

We just couldn’t wait ’til the end of the league to give out our new t-shirts, so here’s an opportunity to be the FIRST EVER owner of a Club ’51 t-shirt!

All you have to do is get your art supplies out and start designing a new flag.

dougal

There’s a few guidelines to follow, though. This flag will be used to wave with a bunch of others at all Mayo games. First of all, it has to be relevant to Mayo and or Mayo GAA. Second of all, it has to be fairly generic – in other words, no flags that will be of no use to us in 12 months time. Thirdly, simplicity usually looks better for this sort of a flag.

Here’s one we made earlier!

tifoc51

It’s not a requirement, however, for the flag to be related to Club ’51 – just Mayo GAA. Think legends, landmarks, green and red, whatever!

The winner will be presented with their very own Club ’51 t-shirt, supplied by T-Rex clothing, who incidentally have a new website for their sporting range here.

Art Attack!

Can’t get the tune out of my head…

You can submit your entries using our contact form where you can include attachments, or post them on our Facebook page. They don’t have to be perfect – give us an idea and we’ll work with it! Closing date Friday 4th April so get cracking!

Happy arting!!

Dublin v Mayo pre-game get-together – Jury’s Croke Park Hotel

Dublin v Mayo pre-game get-together – Jury’s Croke Park Hotel

It’s been a quiet few days for the Mayo faithful as we’ve been basking in the warm glow of the win against the Rebels last Sunday week, but now it’s time to turn our sights towards the one we’ve all been waiting for as the Green and Red take to the capital to face Dublin in Round 6 of the Allianz National Football League. The game throws in at 7pm on Saturday 29th March, and there can be no doubt that this is the Big One, to date at least, of this year’s league campaign as we face the Boys in Blue for the first time since last year’s stinging final defeat.

For those of us exiled in the Smoke, it’s a welcome break from the travels, and for those of you visiting, well, you always have a good time in the capital, don’t you?

Debate is already sizzling about this one – do Mayo need to grab this game by the scruff of the neck and take it to the Dubs, in the process laying down a strong marker for the year ahead and giving ourselves a welcome psychological boost? A win will leave us in an excellent position, with potentially a play-off spot to look forward to. Or in the grand scheme of things, does a win against the Dubs in March really mean anything, when there is a far bigger prize to play for later in the year?

Whatever your school of thought, this fixture holds all the promise of and ingredients for an epic clash, and Club ’51 will as usual be there in the thick of the action. We’ll be convening in the main bar of Jury’s Croke Park Hotel (at the back of the Hogan Stand) from late afternoon, 4.30pm or so (we like to make a day of it), everyone is welcome to come along and we look forward to seeing a good crew there.

This is a big game, and we want to make a big impact both on the pitch and off. Holding the game in Croke Park, while the obvious thing to do, ensures that this is essentially a home game for the Dubs (despite their protests) but it’s our ground too, and a ground with which we’re very familiar. Last summer, Mayo supporters brought a sea of green and red to Croke Park, and this Saturday night, we want to bring it back. We’d like to show Dublin and indeed the rest of the country that this Mayo team and its supporters are back with a bang, and that we’re in it for the long haul again this year. So if you’re making the trip east, pack a flag, or a banner and hold them high before the game, and let’s together make some noise and get behind our team on Saturday night.

After the game, as there’s a large Mayo contingent staying there, there’ll be a few drinks in the Skylon Hotel in Drumcondra. We look forward to seeing you all there!

New Club ’51 T-Shirts Revealed

New Club ’51 T-Shirts Revealed

So here it is, the moment we’ve all been waiting for! The new limited edition Club ’51 t-shirt has been revealed! We have 4 of these up for grabs, thanks to the good folk at T-Rex Clothing, and also our resident design man (I don’t know the technical term, you’ll have to ask him yourself) Aidan!

Mayo Club 51 Model

The winner of our prediction league will get one of these, and we have yet to decide what to do with the other 3. It’s funny, because the last prediction league I was in was very interesting, the people who organised the league actually won it! So it’s not unusual for that kind of thing to happen…

The Spinmaster

So start doing your research, the prediction league just got serious! The lucky person to be placed last in our league will get their very own limited edition Club ’51 wooden spoon. That will be provided by my good self. So make room on the mantelpiece if the league hasn’t been going to plan!

Wooden spoon

Good luck!
