It's never dull for Mayo football and their last-gasp equaliser against Donegal saw them retain their Division One status but 'it's getting tougher every year for them' warns Tomás Ó'Sé on this week's Throw-In.

"They have this spark inside them and there's a core group that are still capable of producing the goods. They’re going to head into two months of serious training for Galway now and it will be a brilliant match to look forward to early in the Championship."

Irish Independent GAA correspondent Michael Verney also joined Will Slattery on the show and says Dublin have to be worried why Diarmuid Connolly still isn't getting game-time with his county. And have Monaghan now provided the blue-print to beat Jim Gavin's team?

In hurling, Cuala and Na Piarsaigh served up another treat in the club game while Tipperary had an easy win over Dublin in the League quarter-final and Wexford's defeat of Galway shows they are flying right now.

"At 6-1 to win Leinster, Wexford are still being under-rated," says Verney.
