Moran won a National League title earlier this year, Mayo’s first national title in 18 years. In between those two league wins the county had reached 10 national finals, three league and seven All-Irelands, including the 2016 replay. Andy was in the Mayo panel for them all, and only serious injury prevented him playing in all 10 – a cruciate injury that forced him to miss the 2012 All-Ireland, when he was the team captain.
Over the course of a 16-year career, he became one of the totemic figures on a Mayo team that was the compelling story of the GAA world in this decade.
He also spoke to Richie about becoming a father, losing his own Dad, Mayo’s goldfish bowl, and the second-half collapse against Dublin in this year’s All-Ireland semi-final.
The interview will be released on the second Captains World Service tomorrow (Tuesday) morning, at 7am. To subscribe to the World Service for just €5 per month (plus VAT), click here.
