Mayo county hurling team

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Mayo county hurling team represents Mayo in hurling and is governed by Mayo GAA, the county board of the Gaelic Athletic Association. The team competes in the Nicky Rackard Cup and the National Hurling League. It formerly competed in the abolished Connacht Senior Hurling Championship.

Mayo's home ground is MacHale Park, Castlebar. The team's manager is Derek Walsh. Keith Higgins captains the team, as of May 2021.[1]

The team last won the Connacht Senior Championship in 1909, but has never won the All-Ireland Senior Championship or the National League.

History

Although not a traditional hurling county, hurling is strong in certain parts of the county especially in the eastern region around Ballyhaunis and Tooreen. Mayo has four senior hurling clubs, each of which provides players for the Mayo senior hurling panel, which participates in the National Hurling League and the All-Ireland Nicky Rackard (Tier 3) Cup.

Mayo has 10 clubs which provide players for the Mayo underage hurling development panels. Mayo has development panels at under-14, under-15, under-16 and minor age-groups, and compete in the All-Ireland 'B' competitions each year.

The Mayo under-21 hurling team competes in the Connacht U-21B Hurling Championship each year alongside Leitrim, Roscommon and Sligo.

Mayo's best performances in the Christy Ring Cup came in 2008 and 2009, when the Mayo side fell at the semi-final stage to Carlow and Down respectively.

Mayo won the 2016 Nicky Rackard Cup, defeating Armagh by a scoreline of 2–16 to 1–15 at Croke Park.[2]

Mayo lost the 2020 Nicky Rackard Cup Final to Donegal by a scoreline of 3–18 to 0–21.[3]
