Has anyone else heard of the curse put on the mayo players the last time they won the final? I remember hearin' it when i was younger but can't remember how it came about! Has anyone got any ideas?

I believe it was a curse by a priest that said Mayo wouldn't win another All-Ireland until there were no more surviving members of the last winning team left.

Urban myth.. According to player of the last winning team ( who happens to be a priest )


What Mayo needs is faith.... Not myths.

Very true. Too many people have a negative attitude. THINK POSITIVE.
Put flags and bunting out, show the lads that we are behind them. Above all don't keep saying "Not in my life time".

Go for fellers, you can do it.

I have to say that I fail to see what the moderator's problem is here?.

Perhaps yop, you could explain a little better.

My comment to leonadas83 is that we have to live in hope (or die in despair).

We may have strayed a little from the myth subject, but that's the way conversations go.

I for one am especially interested in seeing if there is any substance to the curse theory as I am sure their are gaa players out there who are superstitious and wonder whether this affects them during matches or not

Well lets see if anyone has any sight, its highly unlikely that it does and its a wives tale anyway.
