On a freezing night in Castlebar there were precious few home comforts for Mayo last night when they took on Dublin at MacHale Park, with Stephen Rochford’s team falling to their third defeat in a row in this year’s league campaign. This latest loss plunges the county back into an all-too-familiar battle to avoid relegation, though with three matches still to come their cause is far from hopeless.
Host Rob Murphy opens this week’s edition of the Mayo News football podcast shortly after the final whistle sounded at MacHale Park last night where he gets the thoughts of Mayo News columnist Sean Rice. We hear post-match reaction to the game from both Stephen Rochford and Jim Gavin and we also get views on the game from Mayo supporter Louis Gunnigan and Edwin McGreal of the Mayo News. Wrapping up this episode, Rob talks tactics in a post-match context with Mayo News columnist Billy Joe Padden.
This latest edition of the podcast is now available to listen to on iTunes and SoundCloud and you can also listen to it directly on the Mayo News website and as well as here on the blog – just click the player below or the one on the sidebar to the right.

Would just like to extend condolences to the family of Aodhán o Conchubhair age 14 yo from Dingle who died tragically as a result of a match related injury . I know I speak for everyone in Mayo and Mayo GAA when sending sincere sympathies to the family and to the Dingle GAA on this tragic loss. May he Rest In Peace.
Unfortunately Hennelly’s weakness in dealing with aerial balls was exposed for their second goal…..we should not have allowed that goal.
We did well defensively but our energy levels were shot in the second half……..why?
Surely Loftus deserved moe game time!
Still, as the economists would say, there were signs of ‘green shoots’ of recovery.
Amen Swahili. Such a sad loss. Rest in peace Aodhán.
And congrats to our hurlers. That is some achievement.
