After a year's absence, Mayo are back in an All-Ireland semi-final. It's the county's eighth time to make the championship final four inside the last five years, with James Horan having now successfully guided the Green and Red this far no fewer than five times.
In this latest episode of the Mayo News football podcast we preview the county's semi-final meeting this weekend with five-in-a-row chasing Dublin. Co-hosts Rob Murphy and John Gunnigan of the Mayo GAA Blog get the show going, first by reviewing events surrounding last Saturday's epic win over Donegal before they turn their thoughts towards Croke Park and Saturday's clash with champions Dublin.
Rob then gets into detail on tactics with Mayo News columnist Billy Joe Padden, who looks at the sectors in which Mayo must excel if they're to end this long losing run against Dublin and qualify for the final for the first time since 2017. Finally, Mayo News sports editor Mike Finnerty sits down with his Mayo News colleague Edwin McGreal to run through some key stats from the Donegal game which help to signpost how and where Mayo need to improve if the county is to prevail in the big one on Saturday.
This latest edition of the podcast is now online and is available to listen to on iTunes, SoundCloud, Spotify and Podomatic. You can also listen to it directly on the Mayo News website as well as on the Mayo GAA Blog.
