Looking Back on Mayo v Tyrone in the Mayo News

An Spailpín Fánach is flattered to be in the Mayo News again this week, reminiscing on the last two Championship encounters between Mayo and Tyrone prior to the game this coming Saturday.

I remember the 2004 game vividly of course, but I had to access the Irish Times archive to go back to 1989. What I do remember is that summer though, the TV in Hanley's window that showed a tape of the game over and over again for the month prior to the All-Ireland, and the whole town of Ballina draped in green and red. For anyone that's feeling nostalgic, Wendy here should bring you back nicely. Roll on Saturday.
