With the Galway Races coming to an end this Sunday and the bookies' satchels either bulging, or their owners with long faces, after too many favourites coming home first - it is an opportune time to look ahead to the four big football games this weekend where all the favourites will be expected to jump the fences being put in front of them.
At least the GAA have done something right for us Mayo fans when combining the Junior All-Ireland final with our Senior quarter-final on August 8. It will be a long sitting in Croke Park however, for Mayo fans with the junior game throwing in at 2pm and the senior game expected to throw in at 6pm. It is a great opportunity for the juniors and I am glad they are getting a run out on the hallowed turf. It may be a first and last experience for some of them as players so I am sure they will cherish it.
The Galway Races are coming to an end this Sunday, and the bookies' satchels will be bulging, or else they will have long faces after too many favourites came home in first place. So it is an opportune time to look ahead to the four big football games this weekend, where all the favourites will be expected to jump the fences put in front of them.
This week we look ahead to the four big football games this weekend where all the favourites will be expected to win through.
Last May between four and five thousand Mayo supporters descended on the Big Apple for the first round of the Connacht Championship, excited, anxious, expectant, is this going to be the year? Mayo supporters are a rare breed; they keep on supporting despite so many setbacks. I bet the New York GAA board and the pubs in Mid Manhattan wish Mayo had to travel every year. The performance levels grew as the tests became stiffer and Mayo found themselves in an All- Ireland semi final replay in Limerick above all places. I find this defeat particularly hard to take because we simply did not deserve to lose to Kerry. What is even more challenging to accept is that a team we were five points up against with three minutes left on the clock or a team we gave a hiding to by 16 points last year are going to be All- Ireland champions, will anything break for us to claim back the Holy Grail?
As the defining Leinster Senior Football May 17 clash with Louth edges closer, Westmeath will be anxious to continue their preparations by producing improved performances in the remaining two rounds of the Allianz Football League.
Mayo will be looking to make it two wins out of two on Sunday when Mickey Harte’s Tyrone men come visiting McHale Park in the second of Mayo’s four home games in this year’s National Football League.
Mayo 0-15 : : Kerry 1-6
Kerry 1-20 & nbsp; nbsp; nbsp; Mayo 1-11
James Horan and his team can be very proud of what they have achieved so far, a Connacht title and success over Cork not based on fancy individuality that can so often lead to failure, but on the values of hard work, good skill, a cohesive team ethic, dedication and application. So you could say that this year’s targets have been comfortably met. However I know that neither Mayo management nor players will be content to sit pretty on one rung from the penultimate but rather will be striving to produce another Trojan effort and move a step closer towards attaining the ultimate prize.
