It’s the day before the big day in Hyde Park and there’s plenty in the nationals today on the game. I’ve got to dash out in a bit – an U11 girls’ football match awaits shortly – so here’s a quick round-up of what’s in the papers today.
The Irish Times has a long piece by Keith Duggan with James Horan and Malachy Clerkin does the match preview, where he gives the nod to us. The Irish Examiner has a nice piece by the always excellent Dara Ó Cinnéide, who reckons we’re in for a bit of a battle tomorrow but who also thinks we’ll come through. The Irish Independent has a piece by Donnchadh Boyle focusing on the new faces in our reshaped forward line.
The Score also has a longish piece with James Horan, which covers much of the ground ploughed by Keith Duggan above.
There’s more, I know, but there’s more for me to be doing as well so that’s all I have for now.
