Qualifier matches with Mayo always seem to be rollercoaster experiences and this was certainly the case with Saturday evening's gripping Round 3 tussle against Armagh. Both sides gave it everything as they battled desperately to keep their championship hopes alive but when the dust had settled it was Mayo who had emerged with the narrowest of wins.
In this episode of the Mayo News football podcast we bring you right into the heart of the action from MacHale Park. Co-hosts Rob Murphy and John Gunnigan of the Mayo GAA Blog take us through the match blow-by-blow, during which Rob also gets some in-game thoughts from former Mayo player and RTE co-commentator John Casey.
Post-match Rob catches up with Mayo News columnist Sean Rice, who seeks to put some perspective on how Mayo managed to survive this riveting contest. Then Rob and John sit down with Edwin McGreal of the Mayo News to reflect back on the match and discuss the post-match reaction from Mayo manager James Horan. We also hear get to hear post-game reaction from Mayo's Colm Boyle and from Armagh manager Kieran McGeeney.
