Mayo supporters heading to MacHale Park yesterday had high hopes of seeing Stephen Rochford’s team record a second win in a row in this NFL Division One campaign, one that could have confirmed the county’s top tier status for another year. In bitterly cold conditions at Castlebar, however, it was Tyrone who emphatically came out on top, winning by twelve clear points and pushing Mayo into a do-or-die relegation decider against Donegal next Sunday.
In this week’s edition of the Mayo News football podcast, we pick through the wreckage from MacHale Park yesterday. Host Rob Murphy and I are joined by Mayo News regulars Edwin McGreal for a post-match panel discussion.
Mike Finnerty gets post-match reaction from both Stephen Rochford and Mickey Harte, while Rob chats with Mayo News columnist Sean Rice about where this latest setback leaves us ahead of next weekend’s showdown against Donegal. Rob also gets the views from the opposition side of the fence when he discusses the game with former Tyrone player and Teamtalkmag.com contributor Noel McGinn.
