The Kerry-Dublin fever has even infected this household today and I’ll be sitting down this afternoon with the little Jackeens to see Pat Gilroy’s finest take on the cute hoors from down South. Three million hundred and forty five is, according to the small lad, what the Dubs’ winning margin is going to be today but, as I’ve been trying to tell him, victory by a single point would do just fine.
Anyway, away from all that, the minors are in action this afternoon too but because I’m on Dub worship duties today, I won’t make it to Tullamore to see our U18s take on Tipperary in the All-Ireland quarter-final. TIALTNGO provides an excellent primer for this contest, one that we’re favoured to win and which, if we do, will provide a return ticket to Croke Park later in the month. I’ll try to keep an ear to Midwest during the game later on and, if I do so, will provide some updates here via Twitter. Best of lucks lads – hope it’s not too quiet down there in O’Connor Park.
