Photo: Irish Examiner Lee Keegan tonight won his appeal against his sending-off last Sunday and so his one-match has been lifted and he’s available to line out in the replay on Saturday. The County Board broke the very welcome news via Twitter a short time ago: BREAKING NEWS: Lee Keegans appeal against his Red Card […]

Kerry unchanged for replay

AISF pre-match parade

As has already been signalled in the comments, Kerry have tonight named an unchanged team for Saturday’s All-Ireland semi-final replay against our lads down in Limerick (throw-in 5pm). For good measure, they’ve named the same bench too. Here, then, are the full details: Kerry (All-Ireland SFC semi-final replay v Mayo, 30/8/2014): Brian Kelly (Killarney Legion); Marc Ó […]

Practical information on Limerick

Gaelic Grounds

Photo of Gaelic Grounds: Maurice Horan (@_terminalx) via Twitter I know it’s been linked here already but, just in case you haven’t seen it, the superb information put together by those helpful souls in Club ’51 on travel and parking advice (and much more) for Limerick on Saturday is here.  The main point to note […]

Lee’s appeal to be heard tomorrow night

Leeroy red card

Photo: The Score (Donall Farmer/INPHO) There’s more in the papers today about the Limerick furore but, as a number of you have already indicated, it’s time to end the debate on that and focus instead on the replay itself. There’s far less on this in the media today, though Colm Keys in the Irish Independent […]

Last word on Limerick

ONeill_Liam_speaking shite

Photo: GAA.ie There’s plenty in the papers today about the fall-out from the decision to stage our replay with Kerry down in Limerick and while none of this will help to calm you down some of it is still worth a read. A lot of focus has understandably been given to the high-handed, arrogant and utterly […]

Photo: Irish Independent/Sportsfile The polls conducted here since the start of this year for our Man of the Match in the various NFL and championship games we’ve played have all, without exception, provided pretty clear-cut results. This latest one, however, has – like yesterday’s epic All-Ireland semi-final draw with Kerry – proved to be a real […]

Ticketing details for replay announced

The County Board have now issued ticketing details for clubs and Cairde Mhaigheo members for Saturday’s All-Ireland semi-final replay against Kerry down in Limerick (throw-in 5pm). Full details on this are here.

Cormac Reilly to ref the replay

Photo: RTÉ The GAA have announced today that Saturday’s All-Ireland semi-final replay will be reffed by Meath’s Cormac Reilly. He was, of course, the man in the middle for our quarter-final against Cork and, all things considered, we got a decent enough shake off him that day so I don’t think there should be any […]

Monday match reports

AISF pre-match parade

Not even the miserable wet weather, the impending end of the kids’ school holidays and the more general return to all the routine and activities that go with this can dampen the mood this morning. Images from yesterday’s pulsating All-Ireland semi-final are still dancing round my brain and it’ll take a while for those cameos […]

Mayo 1-16 Kerry 1-16: heroic second half fightback

Minors full time

We’re no nearer to the All-Ireland this year now than we were ahead of throw-in today. Following today’s utterly enthralling drawn All-Ireland semi-final against Kerry at Croke Park, however, what we can say for sure is that this team that James Horan has built has unbelievable reserves of heart and guts as well as an […]
