The Mayo Under 20s take the field at Croke Park on Sunday for their All-Ieland final meeting with Kildare, with throw-in set for 1.15pm. Michael Solan’s squad are underdogs but after their fearless and fervent performance in beating Derry in the semi-final they appear to be quietly confident of delivering another underage All-Ireland title for the county.
In this final preview podcast, host Rob Murphy is joined by Mayo News sports editor Mike Finnerty to set the scene. Along the way we hear from Mayo News columnist Billy Joe Padden as well as Patrick Ward of the Kildare Post. Patrick O’Malley, who will line out in goals for Mayo on Sunday, also provides some pre-match thoughts, from the perspective of a player who also wore the No.1 jersey for Westrport in their 2017 Intermediate All-Ireland final success.
