I got my grass cut and our U21s did the business against Galway down in Charlestown. We won by a single point but what decided it in our favour was the two goals we scored, one in each half. Mikey Sweeney got the first as we led 1- 4 to 0-4 at the break but I’ve no idea who scored the second one. Kevin McLoughlin, who made his senior debut last weekend, was Man of the Match. All these slivers of information, by the way, are courtesy of this thread on gaaboard.com.
UPDATE: No one Shouted Stop! (who was at Charlestown today) has provided his thoughts on the game and has also pointed out that, somewhat incredibly, the Mayo Advertiser already has a match report up on their site.
That result should send the seniors off to Tralee in good spirits but Kerry’s short-lived defence of their Munster and All-Ireland U21 titles could make the home supporters a bit grumpy tomorrow, as Cork beat the living shite of Kerry at Pairc Ui Rinn this afternoon, winning by 1-17 to 0-9. If there’s one thing the Kingdom hate more than losing, it’s losing to the Langers so I hope our lads don’t suffer any backlash arising from this one tomorrow.
