Mayo claimed their second Connacht title in succession when they stormed back in the second half at Croke Park on Sunday, beating Galway by six points. The team’s uncertain first half display contrasted greatly with a dominant second half performance, creating several talking points from this novel Nestor Cup decider, the first to be decided at GAA HQ in almost a century.
In this episode of the Mayo News football podcast, we review Sunday’s pulsating Connacht decider. Billy Joe Padden hosts the show and he’s joined by Edwin McGreal of the Mayo News and by me.
We chat about the occasion itself, one that saw Mayo and Galway supporters being able to attend a match in large numbers for the first time since the Covid pandemic hit. We also discuss how the provincial final was won and lost, what Mayo did well and not so well and how they were able to turn things around after the break.
We also hear the post-match thoughts of Martin Carney, with whom Mike Finnerty caught up at Croke Park after the final whistle had sounded.
