It’s a truly glorious morning weather-wise up here in the capital and for Mayo’s women footballers a glorious opportunity awaits at Croke Park this afternoon. Their LGFA All-Ireland SFC semi-final against Kerry throws in at 2pm with the winners playing either defending champions Meath or Donegal in the decider in a fortnight’s time.

There was a big crowd of over […]

If you’ve listened to the interview that Mike did with Mayo Minor manager Seán Deane for our Minor final preview episode of the podcast, you’ll have heard his appeal for a large Mayo following to turn up at Dr Hyde Park on Friday evening.
