With no inter-county action this summer due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the club championships within the county are generating more interest than usual. Clubs are also getting the chance to play championship ties in summertime and the two rounds of games contested so far have produced several high-quality contests.
In this episode of the Mayo News football podcast we fix our focus firmly on the club action. Host Rob Murphy is joined at Westport by Mike Finnerty, Sports Editor of the Mayo News, where they look back on what was a rip-roaring drawn match between the Covies and Charlestown. Rob also catches up after the game with ex-Charlestown and Mayo star John Casey, who was delighted by his club’s defiant stand in a game where they simply had to avoid defeat.
From there we switch to the Mayo News offices on the Fairgreen in Westport where Mike gets together with his Mayo News colleague Ger Flanagan to review all of the weekend’s action. We also hear post-match audio, courtesy of Mayo GAA TV, from Charlestown’s Tom Parsons and Padraig O’Hora of Ballina Stephenites.
