Over the past decade Mayo supporters have had several Croke Park days to remember. A constant over the last nine years, though, was that every time they met them, Dublin had their number. Up until last night, that was, when, on a epic night at GAA HQ, James Horan’s remoulded Mayo team finally ended Dublin’s dominance, over both Mayo and the Championship itself.
In this match-day episode of the Mayo News football podcast we bring you right into the heart of a mesmerising night at Croke Park. Host Rob Murphy and I get the show going soon after the match had ended as we reflect on the events we’ve just seen.
Next Rob gets post-match thoughts from Billy Joe Padden, following which we switch to the press box where Mike Finnerty gets after-game reaction from both Colm Keys of the Irish Independent and RTÉ’s Kevin McStay. Next up it’s Edwin McGreal of the Mayo News who chats with Mick Foley on the Sunday Times.
Closing out a memorable night, it’s back to Rob, me and my son Joe – what a Mayo supporter that young man is – on our stroll home as we reflect some more on the seismic match we’d just witnessed.
