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.
This episode of the Mayo News Football Podcast is now online and is available to listen to on iTunes, SoundCloud, Podomatic and Spotify. You can also listen to it directly on the Mayo News website as well as here on the blog using the SoundCloud player below.
The podcast is on Patreon as well, where club members enjoy exclusive access to bonus episodes and much more besides. The Patreon variant of this episode is an extended one, in which Billy Joe focuses on possible reasons why Mayo are suffering such a litany of injuries, while Tony discusses the media’s relationship with inter-county players and managers, in the wake of James Horan’s decision not to attend Sunday’s post-match media briefing at Croke Park.

Email for ticket has arrived. Very straightforward system for downloading and saving to the phone.
Tickets gone on sale for general public
Is the season ticket for first round of championship free ? I haven’t received mine yet but there is some good seats in the stand available on general sale.
All I can see on my season ticket account is a general “Season ticket” to download but no specific ticket for the Galway game. If that’s correct, season ticket holders won’t get into the stand for the Galway match as the stand tickets are being allocated per seat (not general admission to the stand).
Has any season ticket holder received a specific stand ticket for the game?
Season ticket 1st round is included in the annual fee.
Thanks Louis. Nothing in my account or no email received yet.
For the non season ticket holders it’s as i expected 30€ for stand tickets and 25€ for the concrete benches. Leinster, Ulster and Munster aren’t charging that much for their early round games.
Just to follow up on my query above regarding season tickets for the Galway game: you have to follow the link in the e-mail you received to redeem your ticket.
You cannot access the ticket via the season ticket portal without going through the link in your mail. It appears to be a glitch on the ticket website. On the website there’s a drop-down menu to “Redeem Championship Tickets” but the Connaught Football championship isn’t listed. If you click on the link in your e-mail it brings you to the correct page to redeem your tickets. It brings you through a process to “buy” your ticket but the tickets are free. Tickets are allocated in the stand, presumably on a first-come, first-served basis (albeit not as good a section as those for sale to the general public).
