It’s the day before our All-Ireland U21 football final against Cork but it’s deathly quiet out there. It doesn’t really feel like the day before a big game but maybe maybe that’s because today’s still a weekday and because it’s an underage final – the last underage match at county level that many of the team will get to play – it doesn’t have the same kind of profile as a senior championship clash would have.
In any event, most the feature stuff about the game has already been done in the nationals. The only two pieces of note today are both in the Irish Examiner, which are a feature on manager Mike Solan and a piece with Cork midfielder Seán White. There’s also a piece in The 42 on six players – three from each side – to watch in tomorrow’s decider.
The locals obviously have loads more in the way of coverage and the Mayo News have now made available for download (here) their excellent 12-page All-Ireland final preview.
The Mayo Advertiser also has plenty of coverage of the big game in their sports section (here) and their preview podcast is also available. So if you’re having a quiet Friday ahead of all the excitement that awaits tomorrow, you could do worse than put the feet up and have a listen to Colm and John.
