Nobody Deserves It More

The world of GAA is never easy.

Both fans and players share their bad days and good days but even though Mayo have had their fair share of both no matter the outcome we have always been united as a county.

The past two seasons have felt like the start of a new era in Mayo GAA history and I tell ya what an era it is turning out to be.

I always talk about how amazing our lads are every single time they are out there on the pitch but due to recent events that happened this week I wanted to give my unbiased few on why there is nobody that deserves Sam more then that amazing panel of players and staff.

For any fan in any county you can never describe the amazing feeling when you get to meet a county player and even though sometimes it might be a simple “hello” or you will get an opportunity to have a proper chat but no matter what kind of interaction it is you will feel like the happiest person on the planet.
I’ve been a fan of Mayo GAA for a quite sometime and like many I have seen a lot of players walk in and out of that panel but every single one of them helped create the magic that Mayo GAA is today.
It was due to events from the past Tuesday how I got inspired to create this post, I just stopped for a minute and to be honest felt emotional realizing how fortunate I am to be from an mazing county like Mayo.
Throughout my time supporting Mayo football it has always been James Horan and his squad.
That panel has gone through thick and thin together and all you want for them is what they deserve  All Ireland Glory !
When you look through the posts on this blog the one thing you will never notice is a single word of negativity, I created this blog to simply turn negativity from last years All Ireland into positivity.
I simply wanted to give thanks to the lads who make my love for GAA even more special.

As we all know once you play for your county you will be a celebrity, sometimes you forget they are actually normal people because you see them as the superheroes representing your county.
I have been fortunate enough to have had some unreal experiences with members of the panel and they have become memories that I will cherish forever.
Trying nearly 2 years to meet Rob Hennelly and when I finally did I couldn’t get any words out, Finding spare change in my purse and running over to put it in Paddy Durcan’s bucket in the hopes of getting a picture, Over the moon to get a picture with a man who is a living Mayo legend Cillian O’Connor and feeling like I won the lottery getting the opportunity to spend time with Matthew Ruane.
To people who know me personally one thing always said about me “Oh she’s Mayo mad ” and to be honest I wouldn’t like to be known any other way.
The picture you see above to others looks like just a few pictures of me meeting a few lads but to me its pictures of me meeting my heroes.
For me personally Mayo GAA has been my life for the past few years and its all because of the amazing men and women who have made it what it is today.

We all know the inside of GAA pundits, analysists and journalists in the country and yes everyone is entitled to their opinion but as the days go by getting closer till the 11th I will be fighting for our lads to finally get the praise they deserve in the writing side of things.
As a county we have had to listen time and time again to everyone writing us off but the best thing of all we proved everyone wrong this season.
Colm O’Rourke ” Mayo should be going home” yeah Colm we should be going home to prepare for an All Ireland Final !
On that Mayo panel you see a group of brilliant men who make their county proud every time they step out on the field.
History may always factor in deciding the outcome of matches but come Saturday Kerry or Tyrone the one thing I will say is good luck.
Whoever wins should realise they will go up against a revolutionised Mayo team who I have no doubt will bring Sam to Mayo.
You can debate my opinions but nobody deserves it more then Mayo.
What ever happens September 11th the county will be proud.
We never fail to have a memorable season and this one will be like no other.
Best of luck to James and the team, as always Mayo for Sam !
