Who’ll win on Sunday?

Informal club for Mayo supporters in London

Patreon club member Tony got in touch the other day to ask me to spread the word about an informal club for Mayo supporters based in London, aimed at getting fans together over there to watch the county’s matches. As a former London-based exile myself, I’m very happy to oblige. The plan is to meet at the Oxford Arms in […]
