That was the worst performance I seen from the minors all year. They were still by far the better team against a Kerry team which unusually was very defensive.

I'd urge caution for the final. Galway have been improving and will be a much different prospect this time around.

It would be a shame if our lads don't go and finish the job now.

Perhaps "efficient" was the wrong word to use about yesterday. But I was impressed that we could malfunction from the kickouts and frees and still beat a Kerry team who had boxed us in. Young Clarke conjured a goal from nothing and the forwards kept the scoreboard ticking over. Very rare in a Mayo side that our forward line may be the strongest unit in our team.

Galway will be a different proposition in the final, and it may not help that we are playing them for a third time this year. But if the management team can keep the squad focused then we have a good chance.

Irrespective of the result, there are several very decent prospects in this minor team, which is a good omen, given that for several years previous we had been getting hammerings at this level from Ros and Galway.

Unlucky Mayo was hoping ye would beat Kerry but not to be. Will be sad to see the likes of Cillian, Keegan and O Shea and Mc Loughlin go, good servants and would walk into any team in Connacht. I feel Mayo were too one dimensional this year and with players like Durcan and Ruane very poor all year, it was going to be tough.
