Mayo’s inter-county football season is set to conclude this coming Friday evening, as the county contests a first ever all-Connacht All-Ireland final, taking on Galway in this year’s Minor decider. Dr Hyde Park in Roscommon is the venue for what will be the third meeting of these two teams in this Minor campaign but this time the Tom Markham Cup is on offer to the winners.
In this episode of the Mayo News Football Podcast Rob Murphy and I preview Friday’s derby decider, focusing on the novel occasion itself and the path this Mayo team – unbeaten in all seven matches they’ve played to date – have taken to the final. We also hear from Mayo manager Seán Deane and from selector Gary Ruane, as well as getting the Galway perspective from Jonathan Higgins of Galway Bay FM.
