Who will win Dublin or Mayo?
Well we’re in Dublin for the Dublin V Mayo final and there is such a buzz about the place. Lots of banter in the local shops to sing off in the pubs. All great fun….at the minute, but who will win? Mayo haven’t won it in since 1951 and I believe Mayo have reached the final 6 times previously and failed to bring home the win! Dublin have a slightly better record over the last 60 years and last won in 2011!
What ever happens today, it will be a fantastic event with thousands of fans making their way to the stadium and the pubs! The sun is shinning too which is always a bonus. (Plenty of red necks later)
We are supporting the green and red of Mayo and will be singing that same song all day – Hup Mayo.
“Oh the Green and Red of Mayo
I can see it still
It’s soft and craggy bogland
It’s tall majestic hills
Where the ocean kisses Ireland
And the waves carress it’s shore
Oh the feeling it came over me
To stay forever more
