Patreon club member Tony got in touch the other day to ask me to spread the word about an informal club for Mayo supporters based in London, aimed at getting fans together over there to watch the county’s matches. As a former London-based exile myself, I’m very happy to oblige.
The plan is to meet at the Oxford Arms in Camden Town, where space has been booked for the dates of Mayo’s upcoming televised games. Run by Bohola native and friend of the podcast, Tom Maloney, the Oxford Arms has very strong Mayo connections. Some of you will recall that we held a live podcast event over there in the run-up to the 2017 All-Ireland final, a night which lived long in the memory for those of us at it.
The first gathering of this informal supporters group will take place this coming Sunday to coincide with our opening National League match, against Galway in Salthill. If you’re based in London and would like to watch the match live with like-minded people from the county then you could do a whole load worse than head to the Oxford Arms that day.
If anyone wants to get in contact with the group, they’ve set up an email account and you can mail them at email@example.com.
The best of luck to everyone involved in this very worthwhile initiative.
