Clones road trip – Mayo News football podcast 2019 E22

A week on from Mayo’s Connacht championship semi-final defeat to Roscommon, it’s time to put some distance between the county and this latest provincial setback. The Mayo News football podcast did this literally, by hitting the road for Clones where, with Sunday’s Ulster semi-final between Cavan and Armagh as the backdrop, the talk quickly turned towards Mayo’s reversal in Castlebar […]

Hurlers heading for HQ decider on Saturday
