Season preview – Mayo News football podcast 2021 E1

It’s been a long, long wait for the football-mad Mayo GAA fraternity but, with Covid restrictions once more starting to ease and competitive fixtures at inter-county level confirmed for the year, we can all finally begin to look forward in earnest to another year of football action.
