The GAA have this afternoon confirmed the arrangements for next Sunday’s NFL semi-final double-header at Croke Park. Tyrone play Kildare at 2pm – in what will be a re-run of last year’s Division Two decider – and then our clash with Dublin throws in at 3.45pm. No word yet on who’ll be reffing both matches but all will be revealed, no doubt, in due course.
UPDATE: It’s now been confirmed that our old pal Joe McQuillan has got the job. Rory Hickey will ref the other semi-final.
Good to see the mind games have started already for Sunday – in the above photo you can see that Cillian O’Connor is wearing the no.6 jersey. After those two sublime sideline efforts down at Páirc Uí Chaoimh yesterday, Cillian has shown he’s a man of many talents and I’m sure he’ll do grand at centre-back the next day.
