There’s less than a week to go now to the All-Ireland football semi-final between Dublin and Mayo at Croke Park. While Dublin are aiming to reach their seventh All-Ireland decider on the trot, where they hope to claim the Sam Maguire for the seventh successive year, Mayo are once again looking to put a halt to their gallop.
In this episode of the Mayo News football podcast we set the scene ahead of next weekend’s big game. Rob Murphy is back to host this podcast episode and he’s joined by Mayo News columnist Ger Flanagan and by me.
We discuss Mayo’s form so far this year, focusing on the players who have been to the fore for the county since inter-county action resumed back in May. We also look at the major challenge Dublin will pose for James Horan’s team on Saturday, reflecting on Mayo’s long losing run against the champions and the chances for the Green and Red recording a long overdue win over them.
The thorny issue of tickets for the match also gets a mention, in light of the reduced capacity of 24,000 that’s being allowed to attend what would in any other year be a full capacity sell-out fixture at Croke Park.
