After a four-week gap this coming weekend sees the resumption of championship action for Mayo. Proper championship action it is too, of the old-fashioned knockout variety, as James Horan takes his charges north to Newry knowing that it's either his team or Paddy Tally's Down who will be exiting the qualifiers on Saturday night.
In this latest episode of the Mayo News football podcast we preview this coming weekend's do-or-die qualifier clash against Down at Páirc Esler. Co-hosts Rob Murphy and John Gunnigan of the Mayo GAA Blog get the chat underway following which Rob gets the views of Nigel Reape and Martin Carney, with whom he met up at last Friday's minor match against Galway at MacHale Park.
Next we sample the mood in the opposition camp, as Rob looks forward to Saturday's showdown in the company of special guest and former Down All-Star Marty Clarke. Then it's over to the Mayo News HQ where Mike Finnerty and Ger Flanagan sift through this week's paper and point out who's saying what in it ahead of the game.
This latest episode of the Mayo News football podcast is now online and is available to listen to on iTunes, SoundCloud, Podomatic and Spotify. You can also listen to it directly on the Mayo News website and on the Mayo GAA Blog.
