It didn’t take long for the Mayo jokes to start. Even before sunset on Saturday evening, they were whirling around social media, WhatsApp groups etc, some new, some rehashed, but all poking fun at the beaten All-Ireland finalists.

Hilarious. Same old Mayo – always losing finals. How many is that now? 11 defeats and two draws in 13 finals over the last 32 years. How could they miss out so often? Is the curse real?
