Dublin review – Mayo News football podcast E38

It’s been a long and winding road this summer for the Mayo football team and its supporters but it’s a road that reached its end at Croke Park on Saturday evening. After a hugely promising first half, a tired Mayo had no answer to the awesome display of attacking football put on by Dublin, who eventually won this All-Ireland semi-final […]

Bowe’s special, Dublin preview Part 2 – Mayo News football podcast 2019 E37

We’re in an All-Ireland semi-final tomorrow so that means a bonus episode of the podcast is in order. And where better than Bowe’s pub on Fleet Street in the centre of Dublin to base ourselves for this extra episode? Sure, we’re still here now. In this bonus preview episode of the podcast, Rob and I are joined in Bowe’s by […]

The day before

Once again, having barely processed all the excitement of the match we’ve just played, we’re hurtling towards another crunch game in this year’s Championship. It’s a schedule designed by idiots, for sure, but it’s one we’re stuck with. Which means that today is – incredibly – the day before our All-Ireland semi-final against Dublin. I’m under pressure here myself at […]

Dublin preview – Mayo News football podcast 2019 E36

After a year’s absence, Mayo are back in an All-Ireland semi-final. It’s the county’s eighth time to make the Championship final four inside the last five years, with James Horan having now successfully guided the Green and Red this far no fewer than five times. In this latest episode of the Mayo News football podcast we preview the county’s semi-final […]

Donegal review – Mayo News football podcast 2019 E35

Words on a podcast description can hardly do justice to what transpired in MacHale Park on Saturday evening. A truly unforgettable evening at the famous Castlebar venue saw Mayo prevail over the Ulster champions Donegal, underlining why they are still among the top teams in the land.  On this week’s episode of the Mayo News football podcast host Rob Murphy […]

The day after

In this crazy, week-to-week Championship run we’ve been on all summer, it’s as if each day has its allotted role. If that is the case then today is the one where – all too briefly – we bask in the pure, unalloyed enjoyment of the win the lads secured the day before. What a win it was. In watching the […]

Donegal preview – Mayo News football podcast E34

Mayo return to action this weekend in Phase 3 of the Super 8s after a one-week break that must have felt like a month for all involved. Donegal come to town in a winner-takes-all tussle at MacHale Park with a place in the All-Ireland semi-final at stake.  On our preview podcast this week, host Rob Murphy is joined by John […]

Meath review – Mayo News football podcast 2019 E33

One home win stands between Mayo and a place in the All-Ireland semi-finals after Sunday’s action in Croke Park. It was far from a straightforward afternoon but Mayo’s nine-point victory over Meath, combined with a draw between Donegal and Kerry, leaves James Horan’s side right in contention ahead of their Phase 3 clash with the Ulster champions in two weeks […]

The day before

On goes this crazy Championship rollercoaster. We’d no time to celebrate properly after the Galway win, equally we’ve had to pack away in short order all those negative thoughts after last Sunday’s thumping down in Killarney. Once again, for what is now the fifth weekend on the trot, the team is back out playing Championship football. And, like it was […]

Meath preview – Mayo News football podcast 2019 E32

The Super 8s don’t allow much time for looking back at the match just played, with the next one approaching rapidly almost as soon as full-time has been called on the one that preceded it. In Mayo’s case this week that’s probably just as well, as otherwise supporters would have ended up doing some serious brooding over the manner of […]
