dejectedSo, the ticket hunt is over for another year and the Mayo footballer’s wait for the senior All-Ireland title will last at least another 12 months.

I don’t actually know if my team-mates from last Wednesday evening managed to get their hands on those precious pieces of paper. I haven’t seen them since. If they did, at least they got to see the Mayo minor team win that championship for the first time in almost 30 years.

And it was a sunny day too, which was nice.
