The Mayo curse has been lifted. Yes, you read that correctly. Mayo fans, fear no more. Ahead of the All-Ireland football final between Mayo and Dublin at Croke Park today, Mayo fans will be hoping that their team can win Sam Maguire for the first time since 1951. And what is always referred to when Mayo's famine is brought up is the famous 'curse' that is supposed to lie over the county since the 1951 team didn't respect a funeral ceremony passing through the village of Foxford in Mayo.
But, on 'The Saturday Game', Joe Brolly revealed that the curse is no more. Brolly was describing a visit he took to the Novena in Ballintogher, presided over by Fr Vincent Connaughton. The Father undid the work of his predecessor, according to Brolly, to great reaction from the gathered masses.
You can listen to Brolly from 3:17 below.
