I’d like to add this site’s support to the campaign started on Twitter the other day by Martyn Hughes (@hugheserace) urging all Mayo supporters planning to attend Croke Park on Sunday week (that’s all of you, right?) to bring a flag with them. The object of the exercise is to increase the amount of Mayo colour inside the stadium and so, in Twitterspeak, create a #seaofgreenandred there on the day.
I think this is a great idea. There was a big Mayo following at HQ for the Donegal match – there were more of them, for sure, but once our lads got going they didn’t have much to shout about whereas we had and we did – but I’d agree that more Mayo colour in the stands wouldn’t go amiss the next day. A sea of the stuff would be quite a sight even if, as I am, you’re colour-blind. Let’s go for it.
Anyone planning to be in Croke Park also needs to get there so those of you travelling up from the west for it may be interested to know that Irish Rail are laying on three extra match special trains on the day. Full details on this are here.
