August used to be the month when the serious stuff happened at inter-county level but this year, with the split season in force, the inter-county year is already over. As a result, August is given over to chat about the forthcoming club Championships and, of course, the appointment process for the vacant position of Mayo manager.
In this episode of the Mayo News Football Podcast host Rob Murphy and John Gunnigan of the Mayo GAA Blog reflect on where the managerial appointment process is at right now and they look at what's ahead on that front over the coming weeks, leading to the expected ratification of the new manager by the end of this month.
They also chat about Meath's successful defence of the Brendan Martin Cup when they saw off the challenge of Kerry last Sunday to claim a second successive LGFA Senior All-Ireland title. Rob then catches up with Ger Flanagan to chew the fat about the club action and to get his thoughts on the GAA's new season structure. Finally, we hear Mike Finnerty in conversation with Shane McGrath of the Irish Daily Mail, as they review Mayo's year and talk about the Mayo management selection process.
This episode of the Mayo News Football Podcast is now online and is available to listen to on iTunes, SoundCloud, Podomatic and Spotify.

In the clubhouse section of the podcast, available exclusively to club members, Rob and John chat some more about what the next few weeks are likely to bring in relation to the race to succeed James Horan, while John has a small rant about the inter-county action ending in late July.
