Mayo Secure Runners Up Spot In All-Ireland After Win Over Tipp


MAYO put an end to the feel good story of the GAA summer after defeating Tipperary and securing a historic second place in the All-Ireland senior football championship for the 123rd time.

“We’re delighted with the second place, and fair play to Dublin or Kerry, they’re worthy winners,” one ecstatic Mayo fan shared with WWN has he left Croke Park triumphant.

Mayo’s superior skill shone through as the beat Tipperary 2-14 to 0-13 points, and the victory represents yet another successful campaign, which sees them occupy the runners up spot in the All-Ireland, a feat many football fans thought was beyond them.

“You work long and hard, day in, day out and this is the result. We know technically the world and the GAA Gods are against us ‘cus all of Mayo is built on an ancient Indian burial ground, which makes it impossible for us to get our hands on Sam so yeah, we’re happy with second,” another exited Mayo fan remarked.

“People keep doubting Mayo, saying they can’t repeat the agonising defeats of previous years, and fair play to them they’re just weeks away from proving people wrong yet again,” sports pundit Jamesy O’Shea explained to WWN.
