Mayo for Sam!
Those were the final words shouted by Joe Biden during his historic speech in Ballina.
And now it’s thought Joe Biden tuned into last weekend’s Mayo match on GAA GO.
It’s reported the US President was ‘keeping an eye’ on the game while attending the G7 Summit in Japan last Saturday.
A spokesman for the GAA told the Irish Daily Star, they’re delighted to learn of President Biden’s ongoing interest in Mayo, and is finding GAAGO as useful as so many other Irish people abroad”.
During a visit to ancestral home of Ballina last month, President Biden reiterated his support for the Mayo footballers, who haven’t managed to bring home the Sam Maguire in 72 years.
