The week is pushing on and we’re getting ever closer to Sunday’s National Football League Division One meeting with Monaghan at MacHale Park (throw-in 2pm). There’s no word as yet about teams for Sunday – it’ll be tomorrow or Friday, I guess, before we’ve full details there – and without that I suppose we’re all at a bit of a loose end. Here, then, are a few bits and pieces to keep you going in the meantime.
Keith Higgins has been on media duty of late, with resultant pieces featuring him in the Irish Independent and Irish Examiner today, as well as on the GAA website. Sean Rice in this week’s Mayo News considers the proposition recently put forward by Aidan O’Shea – that our fast-as-hell skipper ranks as the greatest Mayo player of all time – and, as ever, what Sean has to say makes for interesting reading. That piece, by the way, also contains his views on the Monaghan game.
The Mayo News also has a piece by Daniel Carey on the abandoned League match against Monaghan up in Scotstown in October 1995, a feature that contains a great team photo of the side that subsequently went on to come within the bounce of a ball of an All-Ireland title less than a year later. My, how young we all once were.
Will we have a poll to round all this off? Sure, why not – here you go.
