The highways and byways of the qualifiers have given us great days out over the last few summers. Part of the fun has been the dicing-with-death element of these knockout fixtures, in which, up until yesterday evening, we've always managed to secure the wins we've needed to keep the run going. In yesterday evening's Round 3 tie against Kildare, however, we finally came unstuck and the 0-21 to 0-19 defeat we suffered brings to a premature end Mayo's involvement in this year's championship.
In this episode of the Mayo News football podcast, we take you back to the events of last night in Newbridge. Host Rob Murphy and John Gunnigan of the Mayo GAA Blog, along with Edwin McGreal, Ger Flanagan and Danny Carey, gather on the terrace at St Conleth's Park an hour after the match had ended for an impromptu round-table on the game and its implications for us. We then cut to Rob and John just after the final whistle had sounded, for a few in-the-moment post-match thoughts, following which Ed and Ger discuss the post-match reaction from players and management. Rob then gets an assessment of the match from special guests Paul Earley and James Horan.
