Kevin McStay’s autobiography The Pressure Game was launched in his native Ballina last week. Afterwards Kevin sat down for a wide-ranging interview with Mayo News sports editor Mike Finnerty, which we’re now making available as a special episode of the Mayo News football podcast.
In this in-depth interview, Kevin speaks about his years playing with Mayo, during which time he won an All-Star award and lined out for the county in the All-Ireland final of 1989, as well as the highs and lows he has encountered in football management in recent years. He speaks candidly about the issues surrounding his unsuccessful bid to become Mayo manager back in 2014 and he draws parallels between that controversy and the current dispute in relation to the funding of Mayo GAA. Drawing on his wide experience as a football analyst on The Sunday Game Kevin also casts a critical eye on where the county team stands ahead of the 2020 season.
