Mayo are making the long trip to the Box-It Athletic Grounds this weekend, a spot they haven’t played in since 2012.
That was also a Division One league encounter, but Armagh fans will hope the result is reversed this time around.
It’s been twelve years since the Orchard County got one over the Westerners, and despite losing, the last two clashes have been extremely tight.
2022: Mayo 0-15 Armagh 1-10 (National Football league R4)
Mayo handed Armagh their first league defeat of the season, although McGeeney’s side put up a huge fight.
An early goal from Ciaran Mackin gave the Orchard County the lead, which they held for long periods.
That three-pointer helped the visiting side into a two-point half time advantage. 1-5 to 0-6 at the break.
But Mayo came back strongly and hit the final five scores of the game to earn the two points on offer.
2019: Mayo 2-13 Armagh 1-15 (Qualifiers R3)
Like last year, these two served up a great game but Mayo just had enough in the end to edge across the line.
Rian O’Neill netted early on, but the hosts shot back with a Fionn McDonagh goal. That gave the home side a one-point half time lead, 1-6 to 1-5.
Substitute Kevin McLoughlin bagged the crucial second half major to firmly put Mayo into the driving seat.
But Armagh battled back bravely and were unlucky not to get something from the game, with one the difference in the end.
2012: Armagh 0-11 Mayo 1-14 (National Football league R3)
Like 2022, Mayo handed Armagh their first league defeat in 2012 after two brilliant opening rounds.
Armagh had drawn with Cork and defeated Kerry away from home to go into the third round unbeaten.
Full forward Andy Moran scored the game’s only goal and ultimately that decided the end result.
Aidan Forker, playing at wing half forward, was the top scorer on the night, finishing with a personal haul of 0-6 (5f).
2011: Mayo 1-10 Armagh 2-10 (National Football league R4)
This weekend Armagh are hoping to seal their first win over Mayo since the 2011 league meeting in Castlebar.
Billy Joe Padden had just transferred to the Orchard County and came up against his old team, who he made two All-Ireland final appearances with.
Brian Mallon and Paul Duffy hit the all-important three pointers for Armagh as they ran out three-point winners.
Steven McDonnell top scored on the day with 0-6 (4f) while Jason Doherty claimed Mayo’s only major.
