  • Today marked the launch of the All Ireland Ladies Football Championship and the Association has confirmed that both semi-finals and the final will be held at Croke Park.

    The semi-finals will be staged on Sunday August 25th, with the final on Sunday September 15th. 

    Holders Dublin and Cork contested last year's final and both counties could be on course to meet in the last four this year.

    The 2018 final attracted a crowd of 50,141 spectators. 

    Speaking at the launch Mayo Ladies Captain Niamh Kelly told Midwest Sport that while it’s disheartening to have lost the Connacht Final last weekend they are geared up for facing Tyrone this weekend.

  • Bohola sisters Grace & Niamh Kelly will return home from Perth next week.

    Grace sustained a serious knee injury a month ago for the West Coast Eagles but says the surgery went well and she will now be able to fly home to Ireland.

    The Moy Davitts ace, 25, joined her younger sister Niamh, 24, at women’s AFL side West Coast Eagles last year.

    The sisters will be hoping to line out for Mayo in the Championship this season if there is a campaign with the Coronavirus bringing action to a halt.

    Speaking to Midwest Sport today, Grace says it's been a hectic few weeks but is really looking forward to returning home to Mayo next week.

    The full interview with Michael D McAndrew can be heard on this Sunday's Sport Show.

  • Crossmolina Lahardane MacHale Rovers star player Rachel Kearns picked up her first All Star at the 2019 TG4 Ladies Football All Star awards last night.

    Mayo also won goal of the year for Mayo captain Niamh Kelly’s effort against Galway and Christina Heffernan was awarded a Hall of Fame Award.
