Time tends to get concertinaed in the qualifiers. This time tomorrow we’ll know who we’re up against in a Round 3 match that’ll already have been played a week from now. Early this afternoon our match-day episode of the Mayo News football podcast from Páirc Esler will be online. That means I need to get this run through the media coverage of last night’s game sorted kinda sharpish. Breakfast will have to wait.
There was a glut of games on last night, including a closer than expected Munster final and other matches – notably Monaghan’s demise – ranked as bigger stories. For once, our efforts weren’t the main ones being poked around under the microscope, which, when you think about it, is no bad thing. Here’s a flavour of what’s out there.
By the way, if you’re interested, my own post-match audio thoughts from Páirc Esler are here.
That’s it for now. Back later on with that podcast episode – another jam-packed one, with loads of voices from Newry – and later again with the results of the MOTM poll.
Best of luck to the ladies today as well – their Connacht final against Galway throws in at MacHale Park at 4pm today and the match is also being streamed live on Facebook, details here. I’ll have a bit on that one too later on. It’s going to be a busy day, by the looks of it.
