The race for this year’s Senior, Intermediate and Junior football Championship titles is heating up nicely. Following a hectic weekend of quarter-final action, it’s now approaching the business end in each of the title races.
In this episode of the Mayo News football podcast we review the weekend’s action. Rob Murphy hosts the show and he’s joined by Edwin McGreal and Ger Flanagan.
The main discussion revolves around the drama-filled quarter-final clashes in the Senior Championship. The debate takes in the game of the weekend, between Westport and Ballina Stephenites, the story of the weekend that was undoubtedly Belmullet, the last-second penalty dramatics in the Knockmore/Ballintubber tie and the rising force that is Garrymore.
The lads then shift the focus away from the club action to reflect on James Horan’s recent interview with Midwest and the reaction it has engendered.
Back to on-field matters, the debate moves onto the Intermediate Championship where we hear how Kilmaine, Mayo Gaels, Louisburgh and Ballyhaunis all made it through to the semi-finals. Darren Coen’s remarkable scoring feats get a mention and so too do the various relegation play-off matches.
We finish with our popular ‘Bring Him In’ section and some chat on other GAA news of the week.
