Mayo’s inter-county year ended last month at the All-Ireland semi-final stage. With the 2019 championship now over it’s time to place the county’s performances this year in context, which is what we do in this latest episode of the Mayo News football podcast.
Co-hosting this season review podcast episode, Rob Murphy and I look back on an eventful year for the Green and Red. We reminisce on how it started out with that novel FBD League penalty shoot-out against Leitrim, then progressed to the high of the League final win over Kerry and the low of the defeat in Connacht to Roscommon, followed by a long and winding road through the qualifiers and the Super Eights before that semi-final defeat to eventual champions Dublin.
Rob then chats with Mayo News columnist Billy Joe Padden who looks back on the All-Ireland final and considers Mayo’s year in the context of Dublin’s five-in-a-row, as well as where it leaves James Horan’s team in the greater scheme of things.
Next, Mayo News duo Mike Finnerty and Edwin McGreal drill into the detail, going through the panel player-by-player to take stock on how the county is fixed as the focus turns towards 2020. Wrapping up this episode, we turn the focus back onto the ongoing club action, with Mayo News reporter Ger Flanagan joining Mike to review all the club championship ties that are down for decision this coming weekend.
