They discuss the events at Croke Park during the Leinster Championship Final between Meath and Louth where a goal was controversially awarded to Meath as the last action of the game. The referee was attacked by Louth supporters.
Should the goal have been awarded? Who has responsibility - the referee, the umpires, the CCCC? Should the game be replayed? Should there be action against the Louth County Board by the GAA as a result of the actions of their supporters?
The Mayo Minors take on Galway in McHale Park, Castlebar in the Connacht Minor Championship Final on Sunday. The podcast team preview the game, look at Mayo’s chances and ask if €35 is too high a price for a stand seat. We also preview the Senior Final between Sligo and Roscommon.
Cora Staunton and the Mayo ladies have returned dramatically to the Championship after three clubs - Carnacon, Castlebar and Knockmore - won their appeal to the Ladies GAA Central Council against the Mayo County Board decision to withdraw the team. The podcast team discuss the decision, the appeal, the search for a new manager and the prospects for ladies football in the county and in the All-Ireland championship.
