With the frantic week-on-week schedule of the National League now behind us and the Championship getting underway very shortly, this leaves only a short gap in between for other chat. It’s no surprise, then, that our latest Any Other Craic podcast episode, hosted by Ger Flanagan and featuring John Gunnigan and Stephen Drake, covers a fair bit of ground.
The lads start with a discussion on the welcome confirmation that MacHale Park will be the venue for the Mayo/Galway game on 24th April and this soon morphs into a look ahead to this pivotal provincial championship clash. Next up it’s the U20s, as the lads look back on the win over Galway in wild, windy weather last week and cast their eyes ahead to this week’s semi-final meeting with Leitrim.
We then hear about the rousing exploits of the county’s camogie team who last weekend became the first Mayo team to win a Camogie League title, when they beat Wicklow to secure the Division 4 crown. After that we have a chat about what’s happening at club level, with Stephen revealing what life is like on the club scene in the sunny South-East while Ger provides an update on developments closer to home.
