We Are Mayo is an excellent new hardback, coffee table-book, released just in time for Mayo Day 2020.

Mayo natives Seán Rice ( Mayo News) and Tom Brett (formerly of Charlestown) have joined forces to produce this fantastic tribute to Mayo which deserves pride of place in every Mayo home. We Are Mayo seeks to reach out to all Mayo people with its high quality photographic and written record of our beautiful county.

As you can probably tell by the name this book is about everything Mayo, its geographic location, its rivers and lakes and mountains, about its infrastructure, its people, its history, its legends and of course, Mayo football.

Followers of the Mayo team will be given plenty of content featuring historical photographs of the 1936 and 1951 / 52 team including pictures of the celebratory boat trip to New York. With the authors’ obvious love of Mayo they also made sure that the printing of the book be kept in Mayo as Knock-based KPS Colour Print were the ones given the task!

This book is perfect for any Mayo lover, be it a football fan, someone looking for a nostalgia trip or Mayo natives living around the world and missing their homeland. If you purchase it, we hope you enjoy it as much as we have!
