It has been an eventful and successful start to 2019 so far. National Football League Champions for the 12th time and a winning trip to New York City. Firstly, well done to all that travelled over to New York at the start of the month. It was a trip that will never be forgotten for many. The game itself may have been a non-event, but the Mayo Supporters made it a weekend that will be talked about for a long time to come. Well done to those that organised events over there, not least the gathering in Times Square on the eve of the game. The green and red army brought the crossroads of the world to a halt, not many sets of supporters can claim to have done that!
Our next challenge sees us face our old foes and neighbours Roscommon in MacHale Park on Saturday evening the 25th of May 2019. Throw in for this game is at 7pm. This will be a tough game, one that both the team and supporters can’t take for granted, rest assured, Roscommon will meet us at 100mph on Saturday evening. We must be ready.
For this game, we’ll have our flags and banners at the Bacon Factory End of MacHale Park. We are hoping to bring all our usual banners that we had at the League during 2019. In addition to these banners, we will have a number of large waving flags to give out to supporters who want to take part in the display of colour before the game. These flags will be available for collection under the scoreboard at the Bacon Factory End before the team emerges onto the field. The idea is to have a number of these large waving flags on display as the team comes out onto the field as well as during the parade. Once the parade is over, these flags must be returned to the back of the terrace so that they do not block any spectator’s view of the game. These flags will be large and require a bit of strength to wave. If you are interested in joining in, please send us a message on Twitter / Facebook or email us at email@example.com
This game will be proceeded by the Mayo V Leitrim Connacht Junior Football Championship Semi Final at 16:30pm and the Connacht U20 Football League at 15:00pm between Mayo and Roscommon. It promises to be an action packed evening. Get there safely and UP MAYO!
