With the draw for the football qualifiers fast approaching, Mike and Rob are joined in this episode of the Mayo News Football Podcast by Tommy Rooney of Off The Ball and host of The Football Pod. The lads talk all things football from Championship structures to Mayo’s place in the minds of pundits and supporters as another summer campaign gathers steam. Tommy tells us why the Mayo story continues to capture the imagination of GAA fans and yet frustrates them in equal measure.
Mike and Rob then turn their thoughts towards the Mayo hurlers and we hear from Keith Higgins ahead of Saturday’s Christy Ring Cup final. There’s also audio from Mayo U17 manager Seán Deane after his charges beat Galway last Friday evening to qualify for the Connacht final. In addition, the lads discuss what’s next for the Mayo ladies, following their defeat to Galway in last Sunday’s Connacht LGFA SFC decider.
