All roads lead to the capital at the weekend but ahead of Sunday and all that lies ahead, we’ve taken ourselves off in the opposite direction for a few days. There’ll be plenty to chew over in the next few days but I think we really need a team announcement to spark everything off properly. We should have this, I guess, tomorrow night or the night after and then we can start to think seriously about Sunday.
In the meantime, I was of a mind to do something on 1996 but I think I might just go for a long walk on the beach in Lahinch instead. As Henry Ford said, history is bunk (although I have to admit that I have more than a little soft spot for this particular subject) and so the only Mayo v Meath match that counts is the one that’s going to take place at 2 pm on August 9th.
