The grim reality of yet another All-Ireland final loss is now sinking in with Mayo supporters, following the county’s defeat to Tyrone in last Saturday’s Sam Maguire decider. As the number of finals lost continues to mount so too does the sense of frustration about Mayo’s repeated inability to take that last, decisive step to glory.
In this episode of the Mayo News football podcast we take another look back on Mayo’s latest All-Ireland final defeat and what it means for the county. Rob Murphy hosts the show and he’s joined by Edwin McGreal of the Mayo News and by John Gunnigan of the Mayo GAA Blog.
The lads look back on the game itself and what went wrong for James Horan’s team on the day. They then discuss wider issues in relation to Mayo’s regular appearance at this stage of the Championship and the continual disappointment that has awaited them in each final they’ve contested since 1989. The way supporters have reacted to this latest loss is discussed and we also hear from Malachy Clerkin of the Irish Times, with whom Edwin spoke after the big match at Croke Park.
