It was tense and tight in the Connacht final at Pearse Stadium yesterday but at the finish it was Mayo who emerged with the narrowest of wins. James Horan’s team came away from Salthill with the Nestor Cup and that precious ticket to next month’s All-Ireland semi-final, where they’ll meet either Cork or Tipperary.
In this episode of the Mayo News football podcast we review the dramatic Connacht decider. Host Rob Murphy is joined by Mike Finnerty and Edwin McGreal of the Mayo News, with Colin Sheridan a late addition to the team who take us through a tension-filled final at Salthill.
Post-game there’s analysis from Paul Earley and Andy Moran, following which we get reaction to the win from a delighted Mayo manager James Horan. Rob, Mike, Edwin and Colin then reassemble to consider the significance of this first Connacht title for Mayo in five years, a win that sees the county through to its ninth All-Ireland semi-final inside the last decade.
