Last Sunday - had all been right in the world - Mayo could have played the Connacht senior football championship semi-final and would then have, hopefully, been looking forward to a provincial final date in a fortnight's time.

The Greatest Show on Earth - was the tag line used by the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus for 146 years until it shut up shop two years ago and Cecil B. DeMille's 1952 movie about the same institution starring Charlton Heston picked up two Academy Awards, including one for Best Picture.
Our hope was that Mayo would have something to play for in our final group game against Donegal in Castlebar and that the Super 8 experience wouldn’t turn into a nightmare.
