Galway shock Mayo in Castlebar

rte.ieThomas Flynn scored the crucial goal as Galway created the shock of the summer to send five-in-a-row champions Mayo crashing out of the Connacht Senior Football Championship title race.

Mayo led by 0-08 to 0-06 at the interval and pulled four points clear before Flynn struck 15 minutes from the end.

Mayo, bidding for an historic sixth title in a row, just were not able to recover as the Tribesmen held on in style to turn over their biggest rivals.

Mayo were forced to dig deep to deal with the fired-up challenge from Tribesmen but they finished the opening half strongly to lead by 0-08 to 0-06 at the break.
