Mayo v Kerry: When Two Powerhouses Collide

The first of this year’s football semi-finals is fast approaching. It’s Mayo and Kerry and what a spectacle this is expected to be. Who can forget the last championship meeting between these two powerhouses?

At Intersport Elverys, we’re proud to be official retail partners of both Mayo and Kerry GAA, who both had vastly differing journeys to get to this point.


The Journey?

The first of the quarter finals saw Kerry face Galway and the Kingdom managed a straightforward victory over the Tribesmen, keeping them at arm’s length the whole game. Eamon Fitzmaurice’s men never looked under serious pressure and in the end Kerry cruised into the semi with a lot left to spare.

In the latter game, Mayo once again didn’t make it easy on themselves and allowed Roscommon to draw the game, taking them to a replay. Eight days later, it was hard to say who had the advantage going into the game and yet another tight fixture was expected.

That wasn’t the case however as Mayo were on the front foot right from the off and managed a 22 point annihilation over the Rossies, sealing their place in their Seventh successive All Ireland semi-final.

As retail partners of these two football mad counties, it’s great to see them translate their dedication and passion to the game, competing year upon year at the highest level, with Sam Maguire always within reach.

We are also delighted to be their destination for boots, supplying them with the latest and greatest styles to suit their style of play. At Intersport Elverys, we understand that having the right footwear is an important part of any GAA player’s game, as they strive for greatness on the field.

This year, Intersport Elvery’s passion for GAA is reflected in the fact that we are now proud retail partners of TEN GAA inter-county teams. We are THE destination for all things GAA.
