Paddy Prendergast, who played at full-back on Mayo's All-Ireland winning teams of 1950 and 1951 died on Saturday at the age of 95. With his passing, the final link to the group of players who took part in the last two All-Ireland finals won by the county has now been severed. In this special episode of the Mayo News football podcast, we pay tribute to the late Paddy Prendergast. Rob Murphy hosts the show and he's joined by Edwin McGreal of the Mayo News who has written extensively about the legendary full-back from Ballintubber and who knows the family history well. Rob and Ed reflect on the legacy of Paddy Prendergast, focusing first on his background and in particular on Ballintubber's 'Golden Mile'. They discuss Paddy's love of Mayo and how he continued to support the county team down the decades, yearning all the while for Mayo to make that final breakthrough. They talk about Paddy's decency and integrity as a person and the many positive impressions he left on those he encountered, so many of whom wanted to speak with him about the men of 1950/1. This was something Paddy often found hard to do, knowing they had all gone before him. We then hear the voice of the late, great Paddy Prendergast himself, in conversation with Rob in 2018. In this never-before-broadcast piece, Paddy reminisces on the journey to those two famous All-Ireland wins in 1950 and 1951.
