Galway review – Mayo News football podcast 2019 E8

Memories of the bright start Mayo made to this year’s League campaign are starting to fade quickly, with those three opening wins now followed by back-to-back Division One defeats.

Dublin review – Mayo News football podcast 2019 E7

Mayo were back at Croke Park on Saturday night for the first time since the 2017 All-Ireland final but it proved to be an unhappy return.

Tyrone review – Mayo News football podcast 2019 E5

Mayo supporters become accustomed in recent years to enduring tough National League campaigns, where wins invariably prove to be hard-fought ones.
