Another day closer to Sunday’s showdown with the Sheepstealers and the build-up to the contest in Hyde Park continues apace. Here’s a selection of what’s out there today.
In the nationals, the Irish Independent has a piece on Robbie Hennelly, while the Irish Examiner has a short piece on Richie Feeney as well as an article on how ourselves and Dublin have pulled away from the pack in our respective provinces. On the latter, I’m not convinced that like is being compared to like, as the Dubs are already on a run of eight out of the last nine Leinsters, whereas our completion of the Connacht three-in-a-row last year was our first such success since the glory days way back when.
The previews have started as well. The one from the Roscommon Herald from earlier in the week is here, while the GAA’s own one, which also contains a video piece with Andy Moran, is here. The Mayo Advertiser has a match preview by Ray Silke as well as John Casey’s take on the upcoming Connacht semi-final clash.
That’s your lot for now.
