So, 2018 has begun and the new year of football action is a day closer to getting going. This time around there seems to be an air of real enthusiasm among the county faithful for the return of inter-county activity.
While the first round of the FBD League takes place this coming Wednesday we have to wait until next Sunday for our opening match in this year’s pre-season tournament. A tasty fixture it is too, against Galway at MacHale Park, where a number of fringe players will get the chance to display their talents.
Rob Murphy dropped by to my place earlier on today where we recorded some audio for the opening episode of the 2018 season of the Mayo News football podcast. This edition of the podcast will also feature an interview by Mike Finnerty with Stephen Rochford and will be available to listen to at some point on Wednesday evening.
It’s all starting again, folks, so buckle up and enjoy the ride. Happy New Year to Mayo GAA people everywhere.
