Game 2. The next step. How are we going to dismantle our neighbours to the east? What is the best XV we can put out? Well, that’s for James and the lads to figure out. The real question is: what can I do?

It’s simple – bring a flag and bring your voice! I know we keep going on about it, but it makes all the difference.



See? I would have buried this if there were a few people with flags behind this goal.


The options are endless. We’ll be bringing our big flags anyways, why not join us and bring yours? Don’t have one? Bring a medium sized one! Don’t have one of those? Then a car flag will do the job! No car flag? Bring a green or red rag or towel and wave that!

Seriously, towels work!

Bring hats, bring scarves, bring balloons, bring the jumper that your aunt Milda knitted for you and you wore it for years, most notably at the Connacht Final in Tuam in 1999 where you got a close up on telly!

Trust the lads to do their bit. We need to do ours and turn this:

On a different note, I’m sure a lot of us sat down and watched another cracking game last Sunday where Limerick overturned Tipp in the Munster Hurling semi-final. It’s worth noting though that we have hurlers of our own, and they are a credit to their county after the season they have put in. Anyone who witnessed the second 35 against Kerry last Saturday in the Christy Ring semi-final will testify to that. They are a talented team who will no doubt be grateful of your support this Sunday when they take on Roscommon in the Connacht Intermediate Final. Roscommon won the same fixture last year and anyone who saw that game will remember the hilarious speech made by the winning Roscommon captain after the game in which a couple of expletives were uttered, followed by loud “sshhhhh!!” noises from his teammates below. That game throws in at 12pm.


So get in early, the stand will be filled on a first-come first-serve basis. Get in, get your seat, support both our teams and of course bring your colours!

Hon Mayo!
