MAYO’S All Ireland woes continue after Tyrone beat them to take the All Ireland title in a tense final in Dublin.
The teams, who lined out at Croke Park this afternoon, battled to the end, but it was ultimately Tyrone’s match – with the final score Tyrone 2-14 to Mayo's 0-15.
There was elation among the Tyrone fans as their side lifted the Sam Maguire cup for the first time since 2008.
However the result meant the Mayo curse - which has allegedly dogged the team for 70years – continues.
The western county have failed to win the Sam Maguire Cup since 1951.
Despite reaching ten All-Ireland Finals since 1989, Mayo have consistently lost out at the final hurdle.
Many attribute their losses to a ‘curse’ placed on the team in 1951, by a priest - or a witch, depending on which version of the story you've heard – who promised they would not win another championship until the last member of the 1951 team had died.
