The GAA world is inching ever closer to a return to play, As the long wait continues, however, this leaves time for more considered debate and so in this episode of the Mayo News football podcast we’re back with another one-on-one discussion.
Billy Joe Padden returns to the interviewer’s chair for this episode and his guest on this occasion is former county player, two-times Mayo manager and current Offaly bainisteoir John Maughan.
Together they talk about John’s experience of managing the Faithful County during the Covid-19 crisis and they look back over the Crossmolina man’s long career both as a player and manager, focusing on his breakthrough in management with Clare and those heady days on the sideline with his native county. The highs and lows of Gaelic football management are discussed as well as the ways in which the role has changed in recent years.
