Saturday evening’s five-point win over Dublin wasn’t just Mayo’s second win in a row over Dessie Farrell’s side, it was also the first time in over fifty years that Mayo had beaten Dublin in a League game played in the capital, as well as the first time ever the Green and Red had come out on top in a regulation League match played against them in Dublin. Because of this, it’s a win that’s definitely worth a second look.
In this episode of the Mayo News Football Podcast, we dive a little more deeply into Mayo’s winning performance at Croke Park on Saturday night. Rob Murphy hosts the show and he’s joined by podcast regulars Edwin McGreal and Stephen Drake. The discussion ranges from Mayo’s direct, free-flowing attack play on Saturday night to how the team lined up in defence. The lads also chat about Diarmuid O’Connor’s superb display, the promising form of Aiden Orme, Jordan Flynn’s kick-passing prowess, Oisin Mullin’s first outing of the year and more.
