Less than a week before Christmas in an eerily empty Croke Park, Mayo battled hard in this Covid-era All-Ireland final but ultimately they came up five points short against perennial champions Dublin. In this episode of the Mayo News football podcast we bring you the story of this year’s decider and how it was won … and lost.
Rob Murphy and I get the show going with some initial thoughts on the game and then it’s over to Mayo News duo Edwin McGreal and Ger Flanagan at Croke Park for the in-game section. We hear post-match reaction from Dessie Farrell and James Horan, followed by analysis from Billy Joe Padden in discussion with Mayo News sports editor Mike Finnerty.
Colm Keys of the Irish Independent, RTÉ’s Kevin McStay and Sky Sports’ Paul Earley then join Mike for a post-match forum. Finally it’s back to Rob and me to pull down the shutters on the podcast for the year as we wrap up the 50th episode in 2020.
