Right, it’s the biggest day of the year for Connacht GAA and the biggest one too for us at MacHale Park for a fair while. It’s been a long time since there was anything close to a capacity crowd at Castlebar and while it’s unlikely that the stewards will need to root out the ‘House Full’ signs today, it’d still make sense for anyone travelling to get there in good time.
That’s our plan, in any event, and once the hearty breakfast is on board we’ll be heading out the door and making the short trip over to Castlebar to get there in time for both the minor and senior finals. The sun is shining brightly here in the east of the county this morning and hopefully the day will stay that way.
There’s little more to say ahead of today’s action than to wish both Mayo teams all the best in their respective deciders. We can say all that we want about players, formations, tactics and all the rest from the comfort of being outside looking in but it’s the players and management who have to do the business on the day. That day is now – it’s their day to perform and it’s our day to support them to the hilt.
Safe travelling to all heading to Castlebar today. Here’s to silverware on the double this afternoon. Up Mayo!
