Future plans – Mayo News football podcast 2019 E19

With the New York trip now over, it’s time to look ahead and in the latest episode of the Mayo News football podcast we do this in two respects. First, we focus on the next challenge Mayo will face in this year’s championship and then we look at the very positive coaching and development work that’s underway within the county.

We start this podcast episode with Rob and I on the terrace at Hyde Park on Sunday. We were there to cast our eyes over Roscommon and Leitrim, in the knowledge that the winners – which turned out to be Roscommon, in emphatic style – would advance to play Mayo in the Connacht semi-final the weekend after next. 

The centrepiece of this episode, however, catapults us back to New York but this time for a very forward-looking discussion. While in New York Rob caught up with Liam Moffatt, Mayo GAA Coaching Officer, and Austin O’Malley, Mayo GAA Academy Manager, to chat about all the exciting work that’s happening on coaching and development within Mayo GAA, where the focus is on setting high standards to ensure continued excellence into the future.

This latest episode of the Mayo News football podcast is now online and is available to listen to on iTunes, SoundCloud, Podomatic and Spotify. 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.

  1. Good podcast lads…interesting to hear from the coaching development side. I wonder what level of skills coaching is being done at primary school level in the county? It’d be interesting to see stats on footballers going into the likes of St Geralds, Coleman’s, Rice, Muirdeachs, Ballinrobe etc at 1st year level who are equally competent off both feet, use of passing from both hands and overhead fielding; the basics which from my experience working in primary schools (albeit outside of Mayo) is often overlooked. My experience of cumann na bunscoile is that it’s just getting kids used to match play.

    If we had kids going into our 2nd level colleges already able to play equally well (or close to) off both sides then this would be a very strong platform for our coaches in these secondary schools to work from. The knock on effect too for Mayo teams would be obvious.

  2. Jasus these podcasts are really good…..so entertaining and informative!!! Keep up the good work. I love saving them up and listening to them on a long car journey, beats listening to the radio anyday.

    I do the same for long journey, or if i have a flight coming up i won’t look at the blog for a few days and have a few pages saved for the flight.
