Last year we got to witness football with a difference and this year was one step closer to the football we experienced before all the chaos started.

The news that Mayo would be playing Division 2 football was not everyone’s cup of the tea but we can now say we got through it !                                                                                                                    New jerseys, more new players, a fresh start that was badly needed for Mayo GAA.

Like most things it was kind of a eerie feeling because you never knew how these teams were going to perform because the main battle was to get to that top division.

The recent retirements that were announced put a dent in the spirits of the people of Mayo but even though the league just finished seeing the player’s performances so far it gives assurance hey its going to be fine.

At first I was like who’s this Rory Brickerden, Enda Hession, Darren McHale, you’ve gotten so use to seeing the likes of Donie Vaughan, Tom Parsons or David Clarke in starting 15 but you know they say first impressions last and after such little time I am assured that there is a bright future ahead for this years senior debutants.

Like I am at the start of every championship I’m nervous but excited.
Every year you go into the unknown but as a Mayo fan you know your going to have an eventful year, because that’s just what Mayo GAA is.
We may have payed a hefty price for Division 1 promotion due to Cillian’s injury but I hope it will be a “wake up ” call to other players to step up to the challenge of making sure that one injury does not effect the season and not a repeat of the early knockout against Kildare in 2018.

On this blog I have told you all many times how much faith I have in this panel of talented players, my opinion then definitely has not changed since !
Us Mayo fans are known for being the best GAA fans in this country and even during a bloody pandemic we still lived up to the title.
As the season continues its is so important to keep our faith and keep fully supporting our panel.
I cant wait to see how this season unfolds and I have no doubt it will be another memorable year and another reason for us to realise how great it is to be a fan of Mayo GAA.
