After all the anticipation of being back in another All-Ireland final comes the crushing disappointment of yet another defeat for Mayo in a Sam Maguire decider. Tyrone were full value for their five-point win but their road to glory was aided by a below-par Mayo performance on the big day.
In this episode of the Mayo News football podcast we seek to make sense of Mayo's latest All-Ireland final loss. Host Rob Murphy and John Gunnigan of the Mayo GAA Blog open the show with some reflections on the day after which we get the post-match thoughts of Edwin McGreal of the Mayo News, with whom Rob caught up soon after the final whistle had sounded.
The post-game analysis continues as Mayo News sports editor Mike Finnerty chats with Colm Keys of the Irish Independent and Shane McGrath of the Irish Daily Mail, before then getting the views of podcast regulars Billy Joe Padden and Paul Earley, both of whom were on duty for Sky Sports at Croke Park.
