Another crack at the Kingdom

So, we’re at the Divisional final stage in this year’s National League and at Croke Park on Sunday we’re set to face off against Kerry for the Division One title. The match is live on TG4, throw-in is 4pm and Noel Mooney of Cavan is the ref. This pre-game piece usually takes the same form, comprising a gallop through recent […]

Kerry, again

Little did I think a fortnight ago, when running the rule over Kerry ahead of that upcoming Saturday night meeting with them in Tralee, that here we’d be contemplating a second March clash with them. This one in Croke Park to boot, for possession of the not insignificant matter of a National Football League title. Ahead of that game there […]

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.

Later on today we have once more the privilege of seeing our county in action in a national final at Croke Park and from what I’m hearing there could be a decent enough Mayo following at […]

One change in league final team

We’ve just named our team to face Cork in this coming Sunday’s National Football League Division One final at Croke Park (throw-in 4pm). The side shows just one change from the one that lined out against Kerry in the semi-final, with Ballintubber’s Cillian O’Connor starting at full-forward instead of Burrishoole’s Jason Doherty. Sunday’s team also bears a very strong resemblance […]

Cork team for final named

Cork have just named their starting fifteen for Sunday’s league final against our lads. The team they’ve named shows just one change from the side that lined out against Down in the semi-final the weekend before last, with Graham Canty coming in while Eoin Cotter drops out. Canty will line out in his usual centre-back position with Eoin Cadogan switching […]
