I’m still over in London, travelling back later on this evening, with last night’s Mayo News football podcast Over for the Match event at the Oxford Arms in Camden now done and dusted. A great night it was too.
There was a big turnout at the event, where there was plenty of chat about the upcoming final and much discussion too on the exile experience and what all that means. As a London-based ex-emigrant myself all this struck a deep chord with me and it made last night’s event all the more meaningful.
We recorded oodles of audio last night and Rob – who, along with Mike, was on the red eye out of Stansted early this morning – has, I’m sure, already begun editing it for the podcast. This one will be a special edition in more ways than one and it’ll be available to listen to tomorrow.
Huge thanks to Tom and everyone at the Oxford Arms for looking after us in the warm and hospitable manner that they did. Thanks too to everyone who came along last night and helped make the event such a memorable and enjoyable one. We WILL be back with Sam. Up Mayo.
