The clocks have gone forward and, once again, the sun hasn’t set on Mayo’s long run in Division One of the League. It took two late, late points up in Ballybofey yesterday to earn us the draw that preserved our top tier status for another year and consigned Donegal to the drop instead.
This week’s edition of the Mayo News football podcast brings you all the action and reaction from MacCumhaill Park yesterday. Host Rob Murphy, Mayo News reporter Edwin McGreal and I describe the action from our vantage point on the terrace, following which Ed goes off to get post-match reaction from Stephen Rochford.
Back on the terrace, Rob and I are joined by Martin Carney, whose roots in both counties left him uniquely placed to give an even-handed assessment of the action. Then Eoin O’Donoghue, one of the young guns who stood up so well for us late on in the game, provides his post-match thoughts.
Out on the terrace once again, Ed re-joins the fun for more post-match chat, following which Rob gets in a huddle with Mayo fans Karol Mortimer, Denise Biggins and Anne-Marie Flynn to reflect on the game and the stress this Mayo team can put supporters’ hearts under at times. This jam-packed episode concludes with Billy Joe Padden chatting with Rob where he looks back at what was an up and down League campaign for us.
