The Mayo News football podcast has been an essential audio accompaniment to the county’s footballing efforts for several years. As Mayo readies itself for another assault on Sam in three weeks time, we’re gearing up for this on the podcast too.
Our podcast plans for the final are still developing but we’ve sorted the broad contours of what we plan to put online over the coming few weeks, leading up to and after 11th September.
Seven separate podcast episodes are in the works between now and the day after the final. Six of these will go online before the match is played followed by a review episode the day after.
The first of these shows will be online this Tuesday. Because our final opponents haven’t yet been determined, this affords us the opportunity of focusing on who this might be and so Tuesday’s episode will concentrate on looking ahead to the Kerry/Tyrone semi-final. Rob will host this one, with local intelligence from the two counties coming from Maurice Horan and Declan Bogue respectively.
After that you’re going to hear an array of other voices over the following two weeks, as well as all the podcast regulars. We’re still firming up the details but we can confirm is that you’ll definitely be hearing from a number of interesting, informed contributors.
In addition, we’re going to have the same kind of ‘press conference’ episode that we ran ahead of last December’s final, in which podcast listeners will be able to ask questions of our panel. We’ll also have a Mayo jersey competition, courtesy of jersey sponsors Elverys.
So what we can guarantee you is plenty of great listening, with loads of variety, as the All-Ireland final draws ever nearer. Sure where would you be without it?
The podcast is indebted to the show’s sponsors, Ceramic City and Swinford Motors, who’ve been with us every step of the way this year. So too has our talented producer and editor Ger Duffy.
