Mayo News football podcast 2018 – club latest, quarter-final previews

The football club championships within the county are coming nicely to the boil, with the Junior championship now down to the final two following the weekend’s semi-finals while the knockout stages are about to begin at both the Senior and Intermediate level. This latest edition of the Mayo News football podcast reviews the JFC semi-final action and previews this coming weekend’s SFC and IFC quarter-finals.

Host Rob Murphy and I chat about the Junior semi-finals, where I give my thoughts on the Achill/Kilmeena match that I watched from the comfort of my living room sofa via the Mayo GAA TV streaming service. After that game in MacHale Park we hear from Achill duo Eddie Doran and Brian Lavelle, speaking with John Brennan, about the win.

Then it’s onto our big match feature where we join Rob and Mike Finnerty ringside at James Stephens Park in Ballina. Rob and Mike describe how Balla proved too strong for Killala in that one and we get post-match reaction to the result from Balla manager Pat Fallon.

After that it’s over to the Mayo News studio in Westport where Rob and Mike are joined by Ger Flanagan to assess the merits of all the teams still standing in the Senior and Intermediate championships ahead of this weekend’s quarter-final contests. The lads then call the likely winners in all eight ties down for decision on Saturday and Sunday.

This latest edition of the podcast is now online and is available to listen to on iTunes and SoundCloud. You can also listen to it directly on the Mayo News website as well as here on the blog, using the SoundCloud player below or the one on the panel on the right.

  1. Hi Guys, This is a genuine question – Is this podcast and all podcasts ye record a p**stake or are ye serious and just having the craic during it? Just wondering cause I was listening and the commentary during the Balla game talking about the championship haircuts and stuff like that is gas!! Love the blogs though, great for discussions on club football in Mayo.

  2. Technical query Willie Joe.

    For the last month or so, I have to input my details every time I post something. This wasn’t the case. Can this be rectified?

  3. Catcol – Did you clear the cache in the browser or make any similar kind of changes at the browser level? That’s the only thing I could think of that might have caused the issue but, then again, I’m no IT expert.

  4. @Up Mayo you have fierce high standards. For what it’s worth I’d like to congratulate everyone involved in the Mayo News Podcast. For those of us living outside the county it’s a great resource to keep up to date with the club championship (as is the blog of course). Us mayo fans are very lucky you don’t see other counties with a dedicated blog and podcast. So thank to all those involved. For me it up there with Sport Joe’s Gaa hour and second captains in quality. So keep up the good work lads.

  5. I always enjoy the podcast Rob Murphy’s enthusiasm is infectious. I had a dream last night that the county board appointed James Horan and Peter Canavan as a selector/ forwards coach. I’ve been crying out for a forwards coach for years but I wouldn’t hold my breath though dreams do sometimes come true

  6. Thanks, Jason – just to let you know there’s second helpings on the podcast front today, the bonus episode on the managerial appointment process is now online as well.

  7. James Fleming – while not officially confirmed, Mayo will be playing NY on Sunday May 5th 2019. There are already packages advertised although almost sold out I believe. Best route is to book your own way.

    No doubt a bumper Mayo support will be over as it’s possible it will be our last ever trip there with changes in the inter county series down the line.
