Last week on the podcast – Mayo Football Podcast 2023 E20

We had two Mayo Football Podcast shows last week and in this review episode Rob and I review extracts from these pods, featuring audio from podcast regular Billy Joe Padden and from Mayo manager Kevin McStay.   Billy Joe muses about the style of play needed in the modern game and he points to evidence of how Mayo attempted to set up […]

EXCLUSIVE: Kevin McStay speaks with the podcast

We’ve got another Mayo Football Podcast exclusive for our club members on Patreon. Mayo manager Kevin McStay sat down this week with Rob Murphy for a wide-ranging interview following the conclusion of the county’s first inter-county season under his stewardship. It’s a detailed interview too, running to just over an hour in length, covering such topics as how the management […]

Glancing at Galway, again

This morning’s draw for next weekend’s All-Ireland SFC preliminary quarter-finals pits us, once again, against Galway. Sunday’s match at Pearse Stadium (throw-in 3pm) will be our fourth meeting with the neighbours this year, having played them twice in this year’s National League and before that in the Dome in the pre-season FBD League. Seán Hurson of Tyrone is the ref […]

Checking in on Cork

Right, it’s time to begin the countdown to the Cork game. We’re playing them this coming Sunday at the Gaelic Grounds in Limerick in what’s an All-Ireland SFC group stage Round 3 clash. Down’s Paul Faloon is the ref and the match throws in at 2pm. It’ll be streamed live on GAAGO. Our task next Sunday is a straightforward one […]

It’s being shown live on RTÉ2. […]

A re-look at the Rossies

It’s scarcely believable but this Sunday – Easter Sunday, no less – the lads take the field for their opening match in this year’s Championship. Roscommon provide the opposition in what’s a Connacht SFC quarter-final tie. The match throws in at Hastings Insurance MacHale Park at 4pm, Noel Mooney of Cavan is the ref and it’s being shown live on […]

Rochy’s rallying call for Sunday

Mayo Football Podcast club members on Patreon will, no doubt, have already heard Mike Finnerty’s interview with Stephen Rochford after the county’s National League final win over Galway at Croke Park on Sunday. As well as reflecting on the win, Mayo’s Assistant Manager looked ahead to next Sunday’s Connacht SFC quarter-final clash with Roscommon, a match that takes place back […]
