Drawing Down – Mayo News football podcast 2019 E23

Over three weeks have passed since Mayo’s Connacht semi-final loss to Roscommon and there’s been plenty of introspection since then on the causes and consequences of that unexpected reversal. Having now been paired with Down in Round 2 of the qualifiers, however, it’s time to shift the focus towards what lies ahead and the challenge that awaits us in Newry […]

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 […]

Two losses and a draw

I think it’s safe to say that the weekend’s results for the three county teams that were in action didn’t go the desired way. On Friday evening the Minors went under to Sligo in Round 3 of the Connacht MFC, losing out at Markievicz Park by 0-16 to 0-12. It was our lads’ first defeat of the campaign, as well […]

Roscommon review – Mayo News football podcast 2019 E21

On this week’s Mayo News football podcast, we once again have to come to terms with another Connacht Championship defeat for Mayo. For the fourth year in a row, the Green and Red won’t be in action on Connacht final day after a one-point loss in a breathtaking clash with Roscommon.  Host Rob Murphy was joined by John Casey and […]

Game day – let’s get moving

The first real test of the Championship faces us later on this evening at MacHale Park in Castlebar. Roscommon provide the opposition in this Connacht SFC semi-final, which throws in at 7pm and where Meath’s David Gough is the ref. Needless to say, this is a match neither side wants to lose. For the winners there’s a place in the […]

Arrangements for tomorrow evening

I’m in a bit of an odd mindset ahead of tomorrow evening’s match against Roscommon, for the simple fact that I’m not going to be there. Nor have I any hope of following the game from a distance either. Lookit, it’s not the first Championship match involving us that I’ve missed in recent years. Doubtless it won’t be the last […]

Roscommon preview – Mayo News football podcast 2019 E20

The first big test in this year’s football championship awaits for Mayo on Saturday evening, as they renew hostilities at provincial level with Roscommon for the first time since 2014. James Horan was Mayo manager first time round back then and he’s guiding the county’s fortunes once more now as Mayo seek to make it back into a Connacht final […]

Future plans – Mayo News football podcast 2019 E19

With the New York trip now over, it’s time to look ahead and in the latest episode of the Mayo News football podcast we do this in two respects. First, we focus on the next challenge Mayo will face in this year’s championship and then we look at the very positive coaching and development work that’s underway within the county. […]

Tales from New York – Mayo News football podcast 2019 E18

Most of the Mayo supporters who made their way across the Atlantic for last weekend’s Connacht championship opener against New York have now arrived back home. They’ve taken with them memories of an enormously enjoyable weekend in the Big Apple, where the county’s presence there was felt right across the city. In this latest episode of the Mayo News football […]
