It’s still a bit away but the time will go by rapidly and before we know it there’ll be skin and hair flying between ourselves and the Dubs at HQ on the 2nd of September. The night before last year’s semi-final, we had the first Mayo GAA Blog-related pre-match get-together when a number of us assembled for pints in Bowe’s of Fleet Street and we had a similar gathering on the eve of this year’s league final back in April. Which means that it’s now time to set the date for the Bowe’s III convocation, which will take place on Saturday night week (1st September) with throw-in at the now normal time of some point after 9pm.
I know this could be described as tempting fate – after all, we lost both times the day after the last two sessions – but, then again, this one could be third time lucky. I’ll drink to that!
