Jaysus, poor Diarmo still getting blamed for everything!!
H&C hardly got the chance to have much impact on the essential approach of that squad to the way they play and organise themselves, that’s in fact possibly one of the reasons they got booted, that they wanted to change things too much from how they were under Horan, though that was probably mostly to do with how the players perceived the quality of their coaching/the chances of success with them.
I mentioned it above, 2015 goes down as Mayo’s worst year of the past 7 after this year. Even though they won Connaught, they were never further away from Sam, they were muck the first day in the semifinal against us, even with us trying out a new system and only just getting to grips with it, til they got the get-out-of-jail-free cards from McQuillan and Dublin losing discipline. Ultimately they lost the replay by 5 or 6 more points than any other championship game that they lost against us in the era.
