Two topics dominate in Mayo GAA at the moment. Off the field of play it’s the question of who will be appointed as the next Mayo manager while on the pitch it’s all about the club championships. Both issues are covered in this episode of the Mayo News football podcast.
Host Rob Murphy and I throw in the ball for what is another bumper podcast episode. Then we hear from Mike Finnerty and Ger Flanagan of the Mayo News for the latest on the managerial appointment, following which Mike catches up with James Horan, one of the two candidates for the job.
Next the focus switches to the Senior and Intermediate club championship action that took place over the weekend. Our two featured games were Castlebar Mitchels against Claremorris in the Senior championship and the meeting of Kiltimagh and Louisburgh in the IFC. There’s in-game audio from both of these contests and there’s also post-match reaction from Castlebar’s Ger McDonagh, Kiltimagh’s Conor Heneghan and Ballaghaderreen’s Barry Regan.
Widening out the lens, Mike and Ger review all of the SFC and IFC quarter-finals and to talk about who’s now likely to prevail in the race for honours at both Senior and Intermediate levels.
