It’s a bit Arctic out there this Monday morning but inside we should be all warm and glowing due to that positive result down in Killarney. So, sit back and we’ll have a look at what’s being said in the papers and online this morning.
Locals: Mayo Advertiser.
All of the above links and more will, in due course, find a permanent resting place in the results archive on the site. Oh, and by the way, the site turned eight yesterday. I know – I can’t quite believe it either.
There’s not much more to report about yesterday. The quotes, such as they are, are measured and low-key, which is what you’d expect and what you’d want to be hearing at this time of year. It was a good opening performance against ring-rusty opposition, no more and no less, so we just bank it and move on to the next challenge.
The one issue worth zeroing in on is Evan Regan’s condition after what was a really nasty-looking fall. The County Board confirmed last night that Evan suffered a fractured clavicle (which, as you should know from biology lessons, is here – it’s a posh term for your collarbone) and Noel Connelly said after the game (quotes linked above) that the unfortunate youngster will be out for six to eight weeks as a result.
Mind you, Evan himself didn’t sound too down in the mouth when tweeting from his hospital bed last night:
Thanks for all the kind messages,not as bad as it looked.Huge thanks to all medics today and top class attention.Much appreciated.@MayoGAA

Here’s hoping his recovery is speedy and uncomplicated, which, with a clean break, you’d expect it to be.
That’s your lot for this morning. If you haven’t yet voted in the Man of the Match poll, then please do – Kevin Keane is leading the charge at the minute but there’s a frantic three-way tussle going on for second spot involving Jason Doc, Zippy and Mickey C so every vote counts.
