Over the last number of weeks on the Mayo News football podcast, we've kept our focus firmly on the here and now, following the Senior, Intermediate and Junior football Championships as they've played out round by round. With the spoils now settled at county level for the year, however, we have time to widen the lens out and consider longer-term trends that impact on how GAA clubs within the county are faring. Clubs prosper and struggle over time for a variety of different reasons but one of the main factors that has come to the fore this year is the challenge presented by rural depopulation. In this episode of the podcast, we examine this issue in detail. Joining host Rob Murphy and Edwin McGreal of the Mayo News on the show are Kiltane GAA club member Ciaran O'Hara and Professor John Bradley, economist and former research professor at the ESRI who has written extensively on this topic. The discussion focuses on the challenges facing rural GAA clubs across the county, which were highlighted by the particular issues faced this season, notably by the Lacken GAA club. Various aspects to the problem are considered, including the impact on a north/south basis and the issues posed by town and country divisions right across the county.
