Okay, it’s the morning after the day and night before so it’s time to face all those match reports and stuff about our dice with disaster in Ruislip yesterday.
Nationals first – Irish Times, Independent and Examiner. Then there’s the Mayo Advertiser, Mayo News, Hogan Stand, RTÉ, GAA.ie and Breaking News. Both Club Mayo Dublin and Sports News Ireland (who seem to have only the one picture of James Horan that they keep re-using) provide match tracker information detailing who scored what and when. As usual, I’ll gather up all the links I come across to the various match reports and place them for posterity in the results section of the site.
If it’s after-match reaction you’re looking for, there are plenty of quotes peppered about the place in those match reports and there are also bespoke pieces in the Examiner and Hogan Stand. Colm Gannon has also posted two post-match audios, with James Horan and with Andy Moran. The former’s take on how the match panned out is, I have to say, a bit rambling and unfocused while the latter is a good deal more blunt in his assessment of the game.
That’s the lot – plenty there to digest and mull over before thoughts turn to facing Galway on June 26th.
