And So it Begins – 2022 Season



The Christmas season may be over but GAA fans all over the country got to rejoice as we saw the return of intercounty football.

The year has started with history being made in the dome in the dome in Bekan and fresh new faces making their way onto the senior panel.

Many people tend to not be in a good mood once January hits but us GAA lovers were just counting down until we got to see our beloved teams come back after the long wait since September.

When the news was announced that Stephen would be taking over the captains role from Aidan O’Shea although I was surprised, I was over the moon that Stephen got the opportunity considering not many people know about his success captaining the Mayo Minors and Under 21’s to All Ireland glory and like many I hope we get to see Stephen lift some silverware in 2022.

This past Friday we got to see eight new debutantes start their career in the green and red jersey.
Even though Mayo didn’t end up on the winning side, I can’t wait to see who will be our rising stars of 2022.
As James once said “our young players have a year under their belt and our veterans have become another year wiser”.

Although it’s early days, we are always brought on a rollercoaster of a journey with the senior panel and I can not wait to see how our journey plans put for 2022.
Although covid may still be affecting our plans as fans, us Mayo fans never let anything get in the way of supporting our men and women no matter the venue.
Wishing James and the lads all the best for the season ahead and as always Maigh éo abú 💚❤
