The wind blew hard and the rain came down in torrents at Austin Stack Park in Tralee last night but Mayo, taking the field in their distinctive new blue away strip, were equal to the conditions not to mention the challenge laid down by high-flying Kerry. James Horan’s men carved out a memorable two-point win over the home team, extending a remarkable unbeaten run on Kerry soil to all of ten years, in the process renewing the county’s hopes of a first National League final appearance since 2012.
