Our opponents in this year’s All-Ireland final won’t be known until Saturday week and the decider itself doesn’t take place for a further fortnight after that but today Mayo GAA held their press briefing ahead of the big game.
James Horan and Stephen Coen did the talking at the event. In a video posted by OTB Sports, James Horan spoke about how Saturday’s semi-final against Dublin turned in his team’s favour, paying tribute to the S&C work the lads have done, which told to effect in extra-time. There’s also a reference to Gurkhas in the jungle.
Stephen also reflected back on Saturday’s win over Dublin, as well as what this year has been like within the group compared to other years. He also spoke about how his role has changed within the squad from when he first came onto the senior panel.
There are a few pieces online from the event – Irish Times, Irish Independent, Connaught Telegraph. The main talking points from these reports are Eoghan McLaughlin’s appearance at training on Tuesday night and how Oisin Mullin is shaping up, both of which, in different ways, are encouraging.
