Wow. Just wow. That’s an experience I’ll not soon forget. I think most of you will have the same view on yesterday. I think we are all immensely proud of our football team. Whatever happens from here on in, nobody, NOBODY, can question the guts, determination and resilience of this group.
As for the support on the slopes yesterday. Well, what can anyone say other than bravo. That is the loudest most determined support I have ever heard at a Mayo game. There was a real feeling of defiance throughout the whole second half and I have no doubt that it helped the boys along. Club ’51 also got quite an airing on RTE during the Sunday Game. Our flags were dotted all over Croke Park and our banner/crowd-cover got not one, but TWO close ups! It’s a pity we couldn’t keep our composure though. I cringe looking at the clip now but I regret nothing!
So it’s looking like it’s all-aboard for Limerick in 5 days. It can’t come quick enough, even though it’s hard not to feel hard done by playing outside of Croker on All-Ireland semi-final day. It will be a strange experience, but it’s one that could go down in history. The ground will without doubt be full and it’s up to us to make it our own. If we carry on from where we left off last week we will make the Gaelic Grounds look more like MacHale Park. So lets just accept that this is the way it is and get our tickets quickly. No room for complacency!
So, once again, bring the colour and bring the noise. But ye need to act fast. Tickets are ON SALE right now, so snap them up quickly. This WILL be a sell-out and we need all the green and red we can get.
A quick word also to commiserate with our minor team who bowed out yesterday at the penultimate stage. You served us well, lads. Hold your heads high. There will be many more days at HQ to come, of that I have no doubt.
So get hunting for tickets folks. We will keep posting during the week with any further information on tickets, travel, parking etc. See ye Saturday!
