  • Mayo will contest a 9th All Ireland semi-final in 10 years when they face Tipperary in Croke Park at 3.30pm tomorrow.

    Mayo claimed a first Connacht title since 2015 against Galway three weeks ago and the team named for tomorrow is unchanged from that win.

    Sunday will see two time All-star goalkeeper David Clarke play his 55th championship game for Mayo and 132nd appearance overall (55 championship, 77 league).

    He made his championship debut back in 2005 against Roscommon.

    The game is live on Midwest Radio Sport with Michael D. McAndrew & Martin Carney and our coverage is with thanks to Ballintubber Store & Agri.

  • It's been a day of suprises in football.

    Cavan are the Ulster Senior Football champions for the first time since 1997.

    Elsewhere, for the first time since 1935 Tipperary are the Munster Senior Football Champions.

    They beat Cork 17 points to 14 at Páirc Uí Chaoimh this afternoon, on the 100th Anniversary of Bloody Sunday.

    Premier Captain Conor Sweeney sent 7 points through the posts, in a man of the match performance.

    Tipperary will now face Mayo in the All-Ireland Senior Football semi-final on Sunday December 6th at 3.30pm in Croke Park.

  • Former Dublin Captain and current Tipperary coach Paddy Christie says a heavy defeat against Mayo in this Sunday’s All-Ireland Semi-Final would leave a bad taste.

    Tipp won a first Munster title in 85 years beating Cork in the provincial final and now face a last four encounter with Connacht Champions Mayo.

    Christie was speaking as he launched AIB’s The Toughest Season photobook, a pictorial account of how Gaelic Games communities came together to support one another throughout one of the toughest years in history.

    The proceeds from the book, which is now available on the Sportsfile.com, go towards AIB’s Together charity partners.

    He says they want to put in a good showing this weekend.



  • David Power has named his Tipperary side to face Mayo in Sunday’s All-Ireland Senior Football semi-final.

  • The All-Ireland Senior Football Championship will have two tiers from next summer.


    Three quarters of delegates backed a Central Council motion at Congress to introduce the change for the next three seasons.


    Teams in Division Three and Four of the League will play in the new 16 team second tier, unless they reach their provincial final.


    A Tipperary motion was carried to determine that Tier Two standings will be determined at the end of the League rather than at the start.
