The Mayo u20's take centre stage when they take on Kildare in the All-Ireland final this Sunday in Croke Park. It represents a big opportunity for Michael Solan's men to showcase their undoubted talent on the big stage along with the not so small matter of potentially becoming the very first All-Ireland u20 champions.
Mayo were (at the time of writing) still planning to head east on Sunday for what is more and more looking like a must-win game if they are to retain their division one status for another year.
Mayo made their way back into the All Ireland final for the first time in ten years with a performance that was forged in self-belief, heart, brilliant skill and a determination to not suffer the same fate as befell them last year when they were pipped at the post by Dublin in the same venue.
There’s no easy way to win an All Ireland, and boy are Mayo doing it the hard way. It’s back to headquarters on Saturday for another swing at Kerry as the look to book an All Ireland final date in Croke Park in September.

The multi-purpose Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology’s Castlebar campus staged the energetic opening ceremony of Mayo Day 2017 last Friday evening. The bank holiday weekend events were long billed to be a celebration of Mayo - past, present and future - and with no little amount of imagination and obvious hard graft, the organisers over-performed in achieving their aim. In his Mayo Day promotional video, director Lorcan Hynes beautifully wove an emotional message around the cliffs of Mayo and the skyscrapers of the world. The message invited the Mayo diaspora to return to a future Mayo, where prosperity will once again create opportunity. Our diaspora was to the fore during Mayo Day and for good reason as Peter Hynes, Mayo County Council’s chief executive, informed the opening ceremony that the global dispersion with Mayo heritage stands at 3.5 million people. Their affinity with their home county has led to Mayo associations growing up in the world’s biggest cities. Just as Mayo currently fits into current global themes of emigration and identity, so it did in the past when the international themes were revolution and republicanism. Those earlier themes, and in particular the political relationship they spawned between Ireland and France, were discussed at the fascinating Mayo Day La L’Arbre de la Liberté - Liberty Tree Conference on Friday and Saturday. The two-day conference offered an impressive line-up of historians and authors.
The third installment of Mayo Day will take place next Saturday, April 29, and over the bank holiday weekend a whole series of events will take place across the county to celebrate 'Mayo-ness.' Wherever you are around the county there is bound to be a Mayo Day event near you to get involved with.
