With this extended break from live sporting action showing no sign of coming to an end any time soon, it’s an ongoing challenge to fill the sports pages. But every challenge also represents an opportunity and it’s in this vein that the Mayo News has risen to the occasion with its ‘Top 100 Mayo club footballers’ series.
In this episode of the Mayo News football podcast we focus on the paper’s club footballers series. Mayo News sports editor Mike Finnerty is in the presenter’s chair for this episode where he’s ably assisted by Mayo News colleagues Edwin McGreal and Ger Flanagan. Together they chat about how this initiative came about and they cast their eyes over some of the names who feature on the Top 100 list.
One of the illustrious players claiming a prominent place on the list is Keith Higgins. The four-time All-Star was named this week as the top Intermediate club player and Rob Murphy caught up with the Ballyhaunis clubman to get his reaction to the latest accolade to come his way.
This latest episode of the Mayo News football podcast is now online and is available to listen to on iTunes, SoundCloud, Spotify and Podomatic. You can also listen to it directly on the Mayo News website as well as here on the blog using the SoundCloud player below or the one on the panel on the right.

TG for the podcast in these gameless times. Keith thankfully sounds like he will continue for another year but I wonder if there is no action this year, who will covid push over the tipping point? There are one or two for sure in Mayo and will we see the likes of Cluxton again, I don’t think so. It does give Boyler time to recover!
I am very sorry to hear of the passing of darragh
Sloyan. Sympathies to his wife and family
Nice podcast. On a sidenote i heard rob Murphy described on newstalk as” Galway bays rob Murphy”where they were playing a rugby commentary clip.didn’t sound right.
Rob’s a man of many talents, No Doubt! He’s been doing rugby commentary with Galway Bay for years.
So sorry to hear of Darragh Sloyan passing. Darragh had a great smile, and it was a pleasure to be in his company anytime I met him..My heartfelt condolences to his wife and young family at this very difficult time. RIP
Should be heading off to see Mayo vs Ros today if things were normal, you really would miss it all.
@Dave Johnson, ..Leitrim GAA fan’s might disagree with that, but your probably right… Good day for a Match in any case, now is it better to turn right at Tulsk, or go through Ballyhaunis on the way to the Hyde?.. Decisions, Decisions, Decisions!
@leantimes, Not being disrespectful to Leitrim, but by law of averages, I would imagine it would have been a Mayo/Ros Connacht semi final.
