"Mayo got an awful lot right without hitting the Dubs with that knockout blow and their fitness, match-ups, tackling and shooting accuracy were all on the money. You'd have to tip your hat to them, they were ferocious."
"You don’t feel sorry for yourself… We said we weren’t going to have regrets about certain things that would happen during the course of the year and during the course of the game. Some days you get a decision or you don’t get a decision; you get a lucky goal, you get unlucky. Things happen. It’s 70 minutes, it’s not a defining moment so for us it’s half-time.”
""The hardest game I have played, That's a credit to Mayo." "
