Monday match reports

It’s always nice to wake up on the morning after a win over the neighbours and to think back on what happened the day before. Yes, we won. Yes, we knocked them out of the Championship: that’s the fourth time we’ve done this since 2019. Yes, we’re in the hat for this morning’s All-Ireland quarter-final draw.

It’s all a bit mad, when you think about it, that we’ve now beaten both last year’s All-Ireland champions and the beaten finalists just to secure our place in the last eight of this year’s Championship. Mind you, we’ve also lost to Roscommon and Cork along the way.

But we’re still standing and in a short while later this morning we’ll find who we’ll be up against this coming weekend in the quarter-final.

In the meantime, though, let’s have a quick look back at yesterday’s game and salivate for a small bit over the online coverage of our one-point win over Galway. Here’s what’s available on the game:

If you’re a Mayo Football Podcast club member, you’ll most likely have already heard our bumper Final Whistle pod recorded straight after the game at Pearse Stadium yesterday. If you’re not, then you might want to join the club – details here.

Once the All-Ireland quarter-final draw is made this morning, Rob and I will be jumping on to record a pod providing instant reaction to it. That’ll then be online soon after.

  1. Glad you got back to Dublin WJ .A massive team effort yester
    day against Galway. Now for the Dubs . UP MAYO

  2. Huge credit to Kevin and his management team in making those pre game changes.. Took guts to drop Loftus from a position which was central to everything that management were trying to implement. Recognising that tactic wouldn’t work against a very big powerful Galway half forward line, and, following through in making the call shows McStay isn’t stubbornly set in his ways.
    I thought starting Kevin Mc was a very shrewd move too. Kevin Mc knows his way around these fierce battles, and picks up pockets of space that makes him impossible to mark. He links play well and can read the game perfectly.
    Well done all. We’re back in the game.
