The trip to Tipp for our next qualifier test is fast approaching but the weekend just gone provided a nice interlude with the county's U20 team claiming the first ever provincial title contested at this level. In this episode of the Mayo News football podcast we look back on Mayo's big win over Roscommon in the Connacht U20 decider and we look ahead to the Round 2 qualifier this coming Saturday against Tipperary at Semple Stadium.
Host Rob Murphy and John Gunnigan of the Mayo GAA Blog set the scene in this edition following which we hear from Mike Finnerty and Ger Flanagan of the Mayo News who reflect on the U20s' win shortly after the final whistle sounded at Hyde Park. Mike also catches up with U20 selector Mickey Conroy and with goalscorer Tommy Conroy.
Switching the focus to this coming weekend, Rob then gets the view from the opposition camp when he speaks with the first football All-Star from the Premier County, Declan Browne. Mike wraps up this episode when he chats with Irish Times GAA writer Malachy Clerkin who gives his expert opinion on where the Thurles tussle could be won and lost.
The Mayo News football podcast is kindly sponsored once again this summer by the Oxford Arms, Camden Town.
