Who’ll make the final?

It’s been an intriguing Mayo Senior football Championship this year and, with four of the big beasts in club football within the county in recent years all falling by the wayside at the quarter-final stage, it’s more interesting it’s getting as the remaining competitors prepare to head down the final stretch. Two clubs who have never lifted the Moclair Cup […]

Proposal A, B or neither of them?

In a normal year we’d know by now not only our full schedule of National League games for the following spring but also what the draw is for the next year’s provincial Championships. This year we still know neither of these things. That’s because the structure of the inter-county football competitions for 2022 remain up in the air, with proposals […]

Lee Keegan is our MOTM from yesterday’s game

And that’s what happened us today. First off, though, it’s only right and proper to salute Tyrone on their All-Ireland victory. They were the better […]

Poll: Kerry or Tyrone?

Our victory over Dublin was only last Saturday night and the All-Ireland final is the best part of four weeks into the future, with the second semi-final not taking place now until Saturday week. Despite this rather leisurely timetable from our perspective, it’s worth shifting the focus for the first time to the decider and, in particular, to consider who […]

Mayo 0-17 Dublin 0-14: we’ve dethroned the Dubs

We did it, we only went and did it. Dublin have been the greatest champions in the history of Gaelic football but their run was going to end some day. That day, in a mesmerising, chaotic and thrilling night of football at Croke Park, was today. We’ve downed the Dubs and, once again, we’re back in the All-Ireland final. It’s […]
