Dublin survive Donegal suffocation to seal final slot

We’re out of town for a final few days in the country before the kids go back to school this coming Thursday and today’s result at Croke Park means that when school reopens, there’ll be plenty of talk about Dublin’s qualification, after a sixteen-year absence, for next month’s All-Ireland final. And that’s before we even get to Vinnies next Saturday […]

More coverage about Sunday’s match

The Mayo News hit the streets yesterday and, as you’d expect, there’s acres of coverage in it about Sunday’s match. So if you haven’t yet had your fill about our All-Ireland semi-final defeat (unlikely, I know) here’s another generous helping for you. Mike Finnerty does the match report, Edwin McGreal has the player ratings and there’s analysis by both Noel Connelly […]

Photos from Croke Park on Sunday

I’ve uploaded a few pictures I took at Croke Park on Sunday, which are accessible via the ‘Photos’ tab above or else directly from here if you’re interested in having a gawk at them. As you’ll see, I wasn’t exactly snap-happy at Croke Park – it wasn’t the sort of day for being a detached observer of events and once the ball […]

Semi-final day

The day before

Not long to wait now, hombres – as I write it’s a bit over thirty-three hours until throw-in and I dunno about the rest of you but the butterflies are beginning to get into overdrive. Tomorrow will be the biggest match the county has played in for five years and regardless of the actions of the Anti-Hype Police, it looks […]
