The inter-county season began with a bang last weekend, with three of the four Round 1 games in Division One finishing level. There’s little time to draw breath either, with the second round of matches on this weekend.
In this episode of the Mayo News football podcast, we preview Sunday’s Round 2 meeting of Mayo and Monaghan at Clones. Rob Murphy hosts the show where he’s joined by Edwin McGreal of the Mayo News and by podcast regular Stephen Drake.
The lads discuss Mayo’s sluggish start and storming finish against Donegal last Sunday, they look at the team selection for Markievicz Park and they run the rule over the list of emerging players. The possible loss through injury for the coming weeks of Tommy Conroy is also mentioned as is Diarmuid O’Connor’s form and the re-emergence after injury of Jason Doherty.
Unfortunately, Mayo’s match on Sunday clashes with Kilmeena’s All-Ireland JFC final against Kerry’s Gneeveguilla at Croke Park. We hear from Kilmeena forward Darragh Keaveney who speaks with Oisín McGovern ahead of the big game.
