When one League ends, another starts

I came across some numbers recently from a Gaelic statistics website and I was shocked with what I saw. MacHale Park has not been a fortress for the Green and Red when it comes to the National Football League. The study done by (here) has assessed every point gained in the National Football League by all eight teams in […]

Photos from the game

I’ve finally got my act together and uploaded some pictures onto Flickr, including a number taken at the match on Sunday.
