That tackle o’hora did in the first half was as good as you’d see. It’s rare you see dispossessions like that these days. (Although O’Shea did a couple of good ones too).

His 'tackle' on Shane Walsh was hardly one for the annals.

Was it not Keegan? There seems to be some confusion over who it was. Surprised it wasn't even mentioned on TSG last night.

It wasn't, but give a dog a name and it'll stick etc as we see here from SouthDublinBro and the likes. Terrible the way the camera zoomed in on him despite him not involved at all.

Walsh should have kept his hands to himself then instead of trying to grab him to the ground.

That win for Kerry today was the biggest Munster SFC final win since Kerry beat Clare by 23 points in 1919.

Cork shouldn't be in the championship. Tier 2 or 3 for them.

On the game itself, Mayo seemed to be rocked by the concession of the first goal until the halftime break. They did start well initially and Galway grew in confidence after that first goal too. But Mayo seemed a beaten docket at halftime. Then, the second half started and Mayo got their goal and brought it back to 2. Mayo grew in confidence, McLoughlin and McLaughlin coming on worked a treat. Kevin seemed to be under every breaking ball in the third quarter. Galway were winning all the breaking ball in the first half. Fair dues to Horan we can't blame him today as he got all his matchups correct at halftime. He also must have given them a right rollicking at halftime because they fought like the Mayo teams of the last decade did all throughout the second half also. While Galway's injuries didn't help them, I still can't believe they only scored 3 points from frees in the second half. THE proverbial game of two halves.

By Christ that was as sweet as you'd get. Terrific performance in the second half. Didn't see it coming at half time I must say. K Mc has to start the next day. Mattie Ruane my motm.

As for PJ - lol.

Jaysus. The water break came at the wrong time for Mayo though...

Goals win matches. Roscommon got more goals (and points) last night. Was only listening to Midwest, but it sounded from Austin Garvin that Roscommon had better footballers skill wise. It might be a wake up call for Mayo at underage structural level.

Point still stands , cause all the moaning about price etc whilst it is valid the same people wont be bothered about price for the next game again if we did happen to win.  It's such a fooking fair weather culture and if you deny that perhaps you dont have the experience of attending games.  They are such a  fickle bunch in general and not really soulful supporters imo , iys all very blaise win or lose .

Mayo fans or fans in general? I'm not going up because nobody in my tiny social bubble will go with me and I'm not paying for 2 tickets.

https://www.irishtimes.com/news/health/covid-19-1-189-new-cases-confirmed-in-state-with-23-patients-in-icu-1.4627625
1378 cases
96 in hospital
23 ICU
The five-day moving average of cases has increased from 300 to 1,189 cases per day over one month

Donegal has 725 per 100,000; Louth is 474 per 100,000; Dublin is at 307 per 100,000; Limerick stands at 258 per 100,000; and Galway has 257 per 100,000
Tánaiste Leo Varadkar said earlier on Wednesday that he expects the fourth wave of Covid-19, driven by the Delta variant, to peak at 3,000 to 4,000 cases per day but with very low hospitalisation and death numbers.

Obviously these new variants are going to have less deaths.

Hopefully the Mayo minors will fare a bit better tomorrow night and win. I must say I haven't been following the underage scene in Mayo too closely lately so I can't comment on who's good enough or not. It's an awful pity that it's one and done for whoever loses tomorrow night.

Terrible performance from a Mayo point of view. There seemed to be no attacking plan at all. Roscommon totally deserve this, far more direction in their attacks.

No single tickets available, only pods of 2/3/4/5. Were there single tickets available when they went on sale?

I don't think so, which is rather unfortunate for the Connacht Council seeing they won't be getting any money from me.

Stay in outa that Sun buckeen ;D
Herself tried to book me a ticket for Wednesday... none left at 10.00.38.
I suspect there was only a token few put up.

The Connacht Council fellas probably have most of them, and then the families the rest. Probably less than 50 online I'd say.
