Mayo News football podcast – Kildare review


The snow was all cleared away at Newbridge yesterday where Mayo provided a first few glimpses of their summer game as they blew away Kildare to claim two valuable League points. This latest episode of the Mayo News football podcast brings you action, analysis and a Mother’s Day special from St Conleth’s Park.

Host Rob Murphy and I take you through the action as it unfolded yesterday from our sun-kissed vantage point on the terrace. Then, after the final whistle sounded, Rob catches up with Sean Rice of the Mayo News to get his thoughts on the upbeat Mayo performance. There’s post-game reaction from Jason Doherty, Stephen Rochford and Cian O’Neill, while Edwin McGreal of the Mayo News joins Rob and myself for a post-match chat.

Mike Finnerty and Billy Joe Padden – both of whom were on duty at Croke Park yesterday – survey the rest of the Division One action, with an eye in particular on next weekend’s opponents, Tyrone. Then, to round off the day that was in it, Rob has a special Mother’s Day interview from St Conleth’s Park with two proud Mayo GAA mammies, Mary Coen and Lorraine Hall.

This latest edition of the podcast is now available to listen to on iTunes and SoundCloud and you can also listen to it directly on the Mayo News website and as well as here on the blog – just click the player below or the one on the sidebar to the right.

  1. Mile buiochas to the Mayo news and to the sponsors for this magnificent podcast. Comhgairdeas to foireann Mhuigheo for the great victory. It is important that Mayo supporters show their appreciation and support the sponsors ie Vaughan shoes for providing us with this facility. This can be done by going into their shops in Mayo or you can purchase on-line @
    Mhuigheo Abu!

  2. Just have been reading something on Google news, Jim Gavin is up to his old tricks, slating the CHC for upholding the one match ban for Fitzsimmons on that dangerous lunge with studs showing into Aidan O Shea, Gavin is trying to set a precedent for things to come ( deliberate Dublin fouling) during their forthcoming showdowns with Mayo / Kerry and Tyrone in the race for Sam.

  3. Great podcast Willie Joe really enjoyed the contribution at the end from the 2 ladies Mary Coen and Lorraine Hall nice touch for Mothers Day!

  4. Oh I know exactly what you meant Mayo88 and you know exactly what I meant. I told you before, beware the daffodils in spring…

  5. Interesting permutations, especially the fact that 5 teams could end up on 6 points!!! If that happens, it’s likely we will be safe, but kerry could be in serious bother unless they rack up a score against Kildare next week. If we beat Tyrone, we will be safe unless

    -Tyrone beat Kerry And Donegal beat us by a big score (5 points or so, and this makes the assumption that they would beat Monaghan next week.)

    Bearing in mind Monaghan have to play Dublin in the last game, that could have a bearing on their point difference which is currently – 1. Ours is – 4 and kerry are the worst at – 13. Donegal at – 11.

    Absolutely mad division 1!

    If we beat Tyrone and Donegal lose fail to bear Monaghan, we are officially safe.

    If Donegal win and we lose, its basically a winner take all in Ballybofey. Although, depending on scorelines in next week games, a draw might do us due to our better point difference.

    I’m going for a lie down!

  6. Hi, Berrnard Flynn was on the radio a couple of hours ago waxing lyrically about all things Mayo. He was in Newbridge yesterday, He said A O’Shea was magnificent as well as Andy and the 2 O’Connor but that the team overall showed great passion etc and no All Ireland Hangover.
    Perhaps most interestingly he was very impressed with Rob Hennelly and thinks Rochford is looking a bit further ahead. Then on top of that he has now reversed his opinion on the Mayo / Galway game and is going for the Green and Red. All looking good.

  7. I think we won’t beet Tyrone and donegal will beet monaghan I hope I am wrong I would take a draw if we got it mayo starting to come right just at the right time too

  8. We need to beat Tyrone next Sunday. Simple as that. If we don’t we will probably be relegated and yesterdays victory will be worthless. We also need to improve our home record. Whats the point of playing at home if it doesn’t guarantee us a decent chance of winning.

  9. Sounds like Bernard might have learned his lesson on messing with the Mayos and maybe even getting some of his punditry off this blog!
    Think I have seen those comments on Rob H written here before he said them. Great minds or????

  10. The most satisfying thing about Sunday from my point of view apart from the win was how much better we were at the basic skills. We were very comfortable in possession, our foot passing was much better and we used the ball very well. The other really satisfying thing was how fit Aidan O Shea seems to be. He covered a huge amount of ground on Sunday and if he avoids injury and continues to improve his stamina he will have a massive impact this year. He is probably at the peak of his career right now.
    This could be another big year – maybe our biggest ever.
