Andy Reid joins the 'Mayo for Sam' bandwagon and a holy inappropriate subs bench in Straffan
At least one Dub reckons this is Mayo’s year and some unusual pitch side furniture at a Kildare GAA club.
After the demolition job that Mayo inflicted on All-Ireland champions Donegal on Sunday, space on the Mayo bandwagon is harder to find than an All-Ireland winner’s medal in Castlebar.
But we think the Mayo massive will make room for Irish soccer player Andy Reid. The Dubliner becomes the latest in a very long line of folks to embrace the 'Mayo for Sam' campaign this summer.

Based on what we saw at the weekend, the Nottingham Forest man may well have joined a winning team.
We know times are hard in the world of GAA but what popped up on the sideline at a junior match in Straffan yesterday has to be a first. A bench from a church was called into service for the subs and the scene was snapped by Evening Herald racing journo Niall Cronin.

A bit like Kildare’s senior footballers, there a lot done, but more to pew... (sorry, couldn’t resist it).
