Mayo’s interest in this years Christy Ring Cup came to an end in James Stephens Park on Saturday afternoon, when a storming Kildare second half performance saw the Lilywhites turn around a nine point deficit into a comfortable five point win.
Having the championship throw-in against New York in just over a fortnight will have been a welcome relief to James Horan and his squad this week as they picked over the bones of last Sunday’s national league semi-final defeat at the hands of Derry in Croke Park.
Mayo left Croke Park on Sunday evening with far more questions than answers, as a 14 man Derry team ran at them and right through them, into the National Football League final in a fortnight's time. For the second time in the space of a few weeks, Mayo had a man advantage and a decent lead, but they were unable to see the game out and came up short in Croke Park. When Fergal Doherty was shown a second yellow card and ordered off the field for a late challenge on Aidan O'Shea in the build up to Mayo's goal 24 minutes in, it should have been the staging post for Mayo's march to victory. But, they never got moving as freely as expected and Derry ran out deserving winners.
Had Jack McCaffrey’s late effort made its way between the posts at the end of a crazy, madcap, frantic and frenetic clash between last season’s All Ireland finalists to hand Dublin victory, it is doubtful Mayo supporters could have left Croke Park feeling any more deflated on Saturday night.
Kiltane dream ends in Croker
It has to end sometime. But not just yet, as Mayo's wait to stand on top of the mountain goes on for another year at least. There were no excuses from James Horan afterwards as he explained: "We had enough ball to win the game today. We just made too many mistakes, too many turnovers. I think it's that straightforward."

Road fatality figures released by the Road Safety Authority (RSA) have revealed that there was a 43 per cent reduction in road deaths in Mayo during the Government Road Safety Strategy 2007 to 2012 when compared to the period of the previous strategy which ran from 2004 to 2006. These figures were announced as the RSA prepares to finalise the next Road Safety Strategy which will span an eight year period from 2013 to 2020.
It was not to be once again for Mayo on the grandest stage of all. But this was not like previous finals in 2004 and 2006 when Mayo left Croke Park after being mauled and maimed by Kerry and questioning everything about their approach to the game. No this was different, still hard to take, but it was another step on the way to the final destination in the future.
