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. Joining in this return to play is the Mayo News football podcast, which is back for another year of football-related analysis, opinion and chat.
In this first podcast episode of 2021, Rob Murphy, Mike Finnerty and I get into a virtual huddle to look ahead to the return to play for the Mayo team. Mike provides an update on Aidan O’Shea’s injury scare, while I give a flavour of the debate that news sparked among worried fans on the blog. We then go on to chat about the League fixture schedule, the Connacht Championship draw and TV and streaming coverage of the behind-closed-doors matches this year. We also talk about home venues other than MacHale Park that Mayo have used in the past for Connacht Championship matches.
