Happy St Patrick’s Day all. This one is even happier as we luxuriate in the afterglow of last night’s super win over Kerry down in Tralee.
Winning makes the job of ploughing through the match coverage a far more pleasant one as well. Here’s what’s online this morning about the game.

As a special bonus, it’s worth looking again at a clip of Mattie’s goal. On re-watching it what I really liked about the score was the fast-paced interchange of passes in the lead-up. This quick movement dragged the Kerry cover away from where Mattie was steaming through, with Kevin then landing that glorious defence-splitting pass into him. Here, have another look for yourselves:
Right, national holiday or not it’s going to continue being busy here all day long. The ladies are in League action against Westmeath in Mullingar today – note that the venue for that match has now been switched from Cusack Park to St Loman’s 3G pitch in the town, where throw-in remains at 2pm. The best of luck to the ladies in that one – I’ll have a piece on the game later on.
Even as I type Rob is, I know, beavering away stitching together the audio from last night in Tralee for the latest episode of the Mayo News football podcast. That podcast episode will be online at some point this afternoon.
And, of course, there’s the Man of the Match poll, where voting is still open – remember you can choose your top three performers – and will remain so for several hours yet. I’ll post the result of the MOTM poll later on this evening.
Off with you now and enjoy the day’s festivities. Up Mayo.
