Mayo were out of the traps rapidly yesterday but I’m afraid I’m a bit slower off the mark today myself. By the looks of it, I’ve still some dirty diesel to blow off or maybe it’s the after-effects of the Covid jab I was happy to get the other day.
Excuses, excuses. There’s media coverage from yesterday’s action to be pointing to so let’s get pointing.
Starting with the win over Down, here’s what’s being said about that one:
The hurlers’ win over Roscommon is reported on in the Mayo Advertiser and the Connaught Telegraph, while Ciara Buckley has her usual excellent collection of match photos from that game on her Memories Thru a Lens page on Facebook.
Okay, that’s your lot for now. Just in case anyone is eagerly awaiting a new episode of the Mayo News football podcast to drop today, please note that, due to logistical difficulties created by Covid restrictions on match-days, we won’t be releasing any episodes on the day after a game for the next while. Our next episode, which will be looking back on yesterday’s game and previewing the Westmeath match, will be online on Wednesday.
The MOTM poll from yesterday’s game is still open, by the way, with Tommy Conroy speeding ahead up front in the voting, chased by Ryan O’Donoghue, Óisin Mullin and Mattie Ruane. If you haven’t yet cast your vote there’s still plenty of time to do so. I’ll post the result of the poll later on this evening.
