Pearse Stadium in Salthill is the venue for Sunday's high-stakes National Football League Division One clash between table-topping Galway and relegation-threatened Mayo. The Mayo News football podcast is back with a bonus episode In advance of the game, in which we test the temperature on both sides of the fence.
Host Rob Murphy is joined for this episode by former Mayo player and Mayo News columnist Billy Joe Padden and by former Galway player and Galway Bay FM contributor Barry Cullinane. In separate interviews with them, Rob teases out issues relating to the Mayo/Galway rivalry and the two counties' contrasting fortunes so far in this year's League campaign.
Rob also catches up in this episode with Mayo News editor Mike Finnerty for further chat ahead of Sunday's game and to get an overview from Mike on the big GAA stories of the moment that are in this week's edition of the paper.
