Part II with the Dubs has now been refixed for this coming Saturday (18th February) at McHale Park with a 2pm throw-in. There was some idle chatter about the place this morning about maybe playing the refixed game (which is not a “replay” contrary to what the Twitterati would have one believe) at Croke Park but that was never going to happen, not least because we’d then have been left with just two home league matches this year.
I don’t know what the story is about tickets, price in at the gate (if any) and all that side of things but I guess that’ll be clarified at some point before too long. Likewise I don’t know if Mother Superior Duffy and his whistle will be gracing McHale Park with his presence again the next day.
What I do know, however, is that there’s no way (indeed, no bleedin’ way) I’ll be able to make it back down to the west for this one. Moreover, I’m not even sure I’m going to be able to follow the action during the afternoon or post anything about the game later on. This is because we’ll be away from base for mid-term purposes over the weekend until some point on Sunday and I wasn’t planning on being networked while we’re away. Looks like you could be on your own for this one, hombres.
