This coming weekend sees the culmination of the group stages in this year's Senior, Intermediate and Junior club football Championships. A hectic few days of football lie ahead within the county, paving the way for the knockout stages in the hunt for the Moclair, Sweeney and McDonnell Cups.
In this episode of the Mayo News football podcast, we set the scene for this weekend's Round 3 action. Mayo News sports editor Mike Finnerty hosts the show and he's joined by Edwin McGreal and Ger Flanagan.
The lads discuss how the weekend's crunch contests are likely to go, discussing in the process whether or not defending champions Knockmore and recent winners Castlebar Mitchels - both of whom face must-win games - are likely to make it through to the quarter-finals this year. As well as previewing all the make-or-break contests, the lads also discuss the controversy surrounding the venue for the JFC tie between Achill and Kilmovee.
Under AOB, the lads turn their attention to the planned end-of-season reviews with Mayo's different management teams and they discuss the continuing reaction to Mayo's All-Ireland final defeat last month.
