Mayo's wanderings through the qualifiers over the last few summers have given the county's loyal followers plenty of memorable days out. Yesterday at Semple Stadium in Thurles, in sizzling hot and sunny conditions, was another one to add to the list, as well as another back door game that had supporters' nerves jangling before that blistering late spell saw us make it safely into Round 3.
In this episode of the Mayo News football podcast, we bring you all the excitement of the trip to Tipp. Host Rob Murphy and John Gunnigan of the Mayo GAA Blog take you through the rip-roaring contest as it unfolded but while the supporters could relax and enjoy the balmy evening conditions after the final whistle had sounded the podcast was then only getting into its stride.
Post-game we hear from Mayo News regulars Sean Rice and Edwin McGreal, with Danny Carey also making a welcome return to the podcast fray off the bench. There's after-match reaction from Stephen Rochford, Paddy Durcan and Man of the Match Jason Doherty, while Tipp's Declan Browne explains what went wrong for his native county. Special guest star Tom Parsons also provides his thoughts on the game and where it leaves us. Not content with all that, Rob tracks down the fans behind the giant Mayo flag that was unfurled on the town end terrace at Semple Stadium yesterday.
