Following Tyrone's shock win over Kerry in last Saturday's second All-Ireland semi-final, the countdown to this year's Sam Maguire decider now begins in earnest. In this episode of the Mayo News football podcast we set the scene for the lead-in to what is set to be a novel All-Ireland final, with Mayo and Tyrone meeting for the first ever time in a Championship decider.
Rob Murphy hosts this show, which begins at Croke Park last Saturday shortly after the final whistle had sounded. John Gunnigan of the Mayo GAA Blog joins Rob in the Lower Davin to provide a few initial thoughts on Tyrone's defeat of Kerry and what this means for Mayo on 11th September. Next Rob catches up for an in-depth chat with GAA journalist and writer Declan Bogue about Tyrone's victory, both in terms of the way it was achieved and the kind of opposition the O'Neill County are likely to provide Mayo with in the final. Rob then connects back in with John and with Mayo News columnist Ger Flanagan for some further discussion on Saturday's semi-final before the lads turn their thoughts ahead to the final on Saturday week.
