Sunday match reports

I’m off down the road to Croke Park in a bit – and what a day for football it is too – but first it’s only right to do a quick post providing links to the games involving us played this weekend. Friday evening’s All-Ireland Minor defeat was as disappointing to us as it was thrilling for Galway, the neighbours’ […]

Women footballers storm into LGFA All-Ireland semis

It proved to be a day of shocks in the LGFA Senior Championship, with Dublin – so dominant in recent year, until losing last year’s final to Meath – dumped out by Donegal, while our two-point success over Cork in one of the day’s other quarter-finals was also an upset. Kerry, too, wouldn’t have been fancied to beat Armagh but […]

The county’s women footballers have a tough All-Ireland SFC quarter-final assignment facing them on Saturday, as they travel to Ennis to take on Cork. The match is set to throw in at Cusack Park that afternoon at 3pm and here’s the team we’ve named for it: Tickets for the game are available to purchase here. The match will be streamed […]

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. […]

Clare and Derry meet on Saturday 25th June at 3.45pm, followed by Dublin and Cork at 6pm. Both of those games will be broadcast on Sky. Then on Sunday 26th, Galway and […]

Who would you like us to draw in the quarters?

We’re back in the hat in the morning, this time for the All-Ireland quarter-final draw. For the draw, the four provincial champions – Derry, Dublin, Galway and Kerry – will be in one bowl while the four teams to emerge from the qualifiers – ourselves, Cork, Clare and Armagh – will be in the other one. The GAA issued a […]

State of the final eight

10:49am: “We’re sorry, but we couldn’t find any events” 10.51am: “You are now in line……………1,759 people in front of you” 11.07am: “You are now in line……………689 people in front of you” God, I really hate queuing for Mayo tickets online. Technology and I are not friends at the best of times. Give me a physical ticket put into my hand […]

Tipp are tops in Munster

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 […]
