Horan happy but more work to do

The biting cold of the tunnel under the stand in McHale Park was the venue for James Horan's latest debriefing with the press pack following Mayo's sixth game in this years national league. In a freezing cold wind that wouldn't be out of place at the start of the FBD League, things were kept short and to the point. Asked about his initial thoughts on the game the Ballintubber man said, “We showed a lot of character and hard work and honest endeavor today, so I'm delighted with that.

I'm delighted with the two points and we can look forward now.”
