Mayo Football Podcast episode: New York Diary Day Two

A day that started with an earthquake in New York and ended with our live event in The Joyce. It also included a trip to see the New York Yankees in baseball action. John, Rob and Mike are joined at various stages by John Casey and Peter Mullen, the legendary former champion boxer from Westport. This new podcast episode is […]

Mayo Football Podcast episode: New York Diary, Day One

John, Mike and Rob have landed in New York ahead of Sunday’s match at Gaelic Park. The lads are in Manhattan to start telling the story of their time of the Big Apple and start the build-up.

New York state of mind

The League’s done and dusted and now, with indecent haste, it’s straight into the Championship. For us, the schedule isn’t as insane as it was last year, when we were forced to play a Connacht Championship quarter-final against Roscommon just seven days after a National League Division One decider against Galway. Recalling that is almost enough to have smoke coming […]

Mayo Football Podcast bonus column: Nestor necessity

In our latest Mayo Football Podcast bonus column for our Patreon club members, Rob takes issue with the widely accepted notion that a provincial title no longer matters within the new Championship structure. For Mayo, Rob argues, winning the Nestor Cup is now all but a necessity. This bonus column is now online and is available to our club members […]

Mayo Football Podcast episode: Looking at the League overall

Mayo’s National League campaign came to a conclusion up in Clones last weekend. But what are we to make of their seven games overall, in terms of performances and pointers for the championship? Colm Boyle joined Mike and Rob to chat about a league campaign that raised plenty of questions and provided a few answers too. The lads talked about […]
