t's been a long and winding road this summer for the Mayo football team and its supporters but it's a road that reached its end at Croke Park on Saturday evening. After a hugely promising first half, a tired Mayo had no answer to the awesome display of attacking football put on by Dublin, who eventually won this All-Ireland semi-final clash with some ease.
In this episode of the Mayo News football podcast we assess how and why Mayo's championship run came to such a shuddering stop against Dublin. Co-hosts Rob Murphy and John Gunnigan of the Mayo GAA Blog are joined straight after full-time by Mayo News columnist Billy Joe Padden and together they confer for some initial post-match analysis.
Up in the press box high in the Hogan Stand, Mike Finnerty and Edwin McGreal of the Mayo News get the post-match thoughts of Kevin McStay and Malachy Clerkin of the Irish Times. We also hear post-game reaction from Mayo manager James Horan before Rob, John and Billy Joe wrap up proceedings from Croke Park.
This latest episode of the podcast is now online and is available to listen to on iTunes, SoundCloud, Spotify and Podomatic. It's also available on the Mayo News website as well as on the Mayo GAA Blog.
