One of the nice things about this winning run is that you get to drool over all that positive media coverage in the papers the following morning. Of course, with all the online content that’s now available – which has implications for the print media, a topic that An Spailpín is ruminating over this morning – you could I suppose choose to drool over your laptop instead. Be careful, though, or it could end up in the laptop hospital like mine has.
Right, let’s start with the dailies. Here’s the Irish Times, the Indo and the Examiner (don’t be shocked at this – it was Cork we were playing yesterday). Johnno has an amusing quote in the latter report, where he refers to the huge number of players in the Cork set-up at the minute. “It’s not a panel they have, but a platoon” he says. He’s not wrong, you know.
Beating the nationals out of the traps, though, was, of course, the one and only Colm Gannon in the Mayo Advertiser, who had his report out there before midnight last night. Nothing as yet from the other locals but for this kind of detailed, considered work you need to wait a bit longer.
Others? RTÉ (there’s no audio clips linked to this report, which is the main reason you’d be having a gander here – maybe those Sunday Sport clowns have taken over this as well), Hogan Stand and the GAA’s own website (you need to scroll down to the end of this for the bit about our game – it was only the meeting of the top two in the division, after all).
That’s about it – have a enjoyable morning’s drooling over that lot.
