Hi folks. Apologies for the slightly later than normal post. Following our Round 3A win over Clare in Ennis on the 8th of July, Mayo will now head to Limerick to play Cork in Round 4A of the All Ireland Senior Football Championship. The throw in for this game is at 5pm. This game will be proceeded by Leitrim V Kerry in the All Ireland Junior Football Championship Semi Final. The throw in for the curtain raiser is 3pm. Tickets are on sale from the usual outlets. Due to the size of the Gaelic Grounds, (49,000 capacity), only the Mackey Stand and the North Stand are open for spectators. The Clare End Terrace and the City End Terrace will not be open for this match. The Mackey Stand is the covered stand at the Gaelic Grounds and runs parallel with the Ennis Road. The North Stand is uncovered and access to this is from Parkview Drive. Seats in both stands for this game are unreserved, so if you want a good spot, the advice is to get in early as a crowd of about 15,000 is expected.
As the terrace is not open for this match, we will be gathering in section 219 of the uncovered North Stand. As this stand has bucket seats, we are not sure if we will be able to bring along Nephin Mor as it is much harder to get it unfurled in the stand rather than on the terrace. We’ll decide on the day if we’ll unfurl it or not, depending on a number of factors.
Because of this, we will bring more hand held flags to Limerick. We will have a number of flags of various sizes to give out before the game, so if you want one, please make yourself known. (We will need these back after the game as they will be used for the next game, whenever that may be). For those of you that already have flags and banners, please bring them along as they will add lots of colour to the occasion.
Finally, safe travel to all fans attending the game and UP MAYO!
