It’s now three wins from three outings for Mayo in this year’s National League campaign and so, after topping Division Two North, James Horan’s side are now set for a trip to Ennis for a promotion-deciding divisional semi-final meeting with Clare on Sunday week.
In this episode of the Mayo News football podcast, we review Sunday’s leisurely win in the sun over Meath and take stock on how the team is shaping up as the focus starts to swing towards the Championship. Billy Joe Padden is at the helm for this episode and he’s joined by Edwin McGreal of the Mayo News and me.
We discuss how the new faces performed against Meath, where might be the place to make the best use of Aidan O’Shea’s talents this summer and what needs to be done to tighten up a defence that has now conceded five goals in the three matches played so far this year.
Next we hear from MacHale Park on Sunday where Mike Finnerty has a post-match chat with his GAA GO co-commentator Kevin McStay. Aidan O’Shea gets a mention here too, as, in glowing terms, does Tommy Conroy while Kevin also ponders about the make-up of the crucial half-forward line.
Back in the studio, we take up the topic of Mayo’s attacking options before the attention shifts to Sligo, with a brief discussion about what they look like after an underwhelming Division Four campaign. Finally, in our Any Other Business segment the subjects to get an airing include Mayo’s new alternative jersey, the odd structure of this year’s League and the resurgent Mayo camogie team.
