After weeks of uncertainty about who would be guiding the fortunes of Mayo’s footballers next year, James Horan’s return to the managerial hot seat was confirmed at last week’s County Board meeting. In this bonus episode of the Mayo News football podcast we focus on the Ballintubber man’s reappointment to the position he held with such distinction between 2011 and 2014.
Host Rob Murphy, Edwin McGreal of the Mayo News and I chat about the events surrounding James’ ratification as manager last week. Next we hear from the man of the moment himself, when James spoke exclusively with Mike Finnerty on Mayo GAA TV at MacHale Park on Saturday night. Mayo News columnists Seán Rice and Billy Joe Padden then provide their thoughts on James’ return to the touchline and what we can expect during his second stint in the position.
