Galway Face Rival Mayo in Gaelic football
Galway Women's Football Club

This Sunday Pearse Stadium sees Galway and Mayo renew rivalries. Galway have had a superb return to the top flight of the National League with terrific win’s over Tyrone and Donegal. Mayo started with a hard fought away win against Monaghan but lost out to Kerry in Castlebar 1-15 to 2-9. As the two sides are due to meet in McHale Park on Sunday May 13th both sides will be hoping to land a psychological blow to the other with a win in the National League. Shane Walsh and Damien Comer have been on fire for Galway to date and will need to continue that form this Sunday.
