The weekend’s matches

We’ve the bulk of the working week, I know, to get through first but all the same I think it’s no harm to give a bit if airtime at this point to the matches involving the county that are on this weekend. On Friday evening, we’re in the All-Ireland Minor football final in what’s a first ever all-Connacht Championship decider. […]

Looking resplendent in their commemorative Bloody Sunday Centenary jerseys, Tipperary cut quite the dash at Páirc Uí Chaoimh this afternoon. While their playing gear nodded to a dark event in the GAA’s history, Tipperary’s young braves created their own history today, beating Cork by three points to land their first Munster SFC title since 1935. I was watching the hurling […]

Women footballers lose, hurlers relegated

The one-point loss to Kerry at MacHale Park wasn’t, I’m afraid, the county’s only loss in competitive action today. We also went under in the two other games we played this afternoon. The women’s football team were beaten by Cork in their NFL LGFA Division One match at Mallow. Leading by two points at the break, Mayo found the going […]
