I’m still in the Kingdom with a drive back to the capital to do soon after what has been a short but extremely satisfactory stay here. I think satisfaction, rather than any outpouring of euphoria, is the dominant emotion for Mayo supporters this morning after what was a fine day’s work by the lads at Fitzgerald Stadium yesterday.
It was an extremely busy day on the sporting front so that has meant our match didn’t attract a whole pile of coverage and this is reflected in the links below. No matter, as we’ve all been at pains to remind ourselves since the full-time whistle blew yesterday, it was just a round-robin game and there’s a long way to go yet in this campaign.
Right, here’s what’s online about yesterday’s win over Kerry.

If it’s listening you want, then our Mayo Football Podcast Final Whistle show, recorded in large part on the sacred turf at Fitzgerald Stadium after the place was cleared out, should hit the mark. Rob, Mike and I are on it, there’s analysis from Martin Carney and reaction to the win from Stephen Rochford. The pod is available on Patreon – here.
The Minors are, of course, worth a mention too following that enthralling one-point win over Roscommon on Friday evening. Match reports from that Connacht MFC semi-final are available from Mayo News, Connaught Telegraph, Western People, Roscommon Herald, GAA, Irish Independent, Irish Times and The 42.
The last bit of business for now is a reminder about the MOTM poll, which is still open. Aidan got the gong on GAAGO and he looks well on the way to winning the vote here as well but there’s plenty of time yet for you to have your say there if you haven’t done so already. Back later with the result of that.
