Andy Moran our MOTM from yesterday’s game

Photo: Irish Times No doubts about this one. With his 1-5 haul from play, Andy Moran is by popular claim our Man of the Match from yesterday’s heart-stopping All-Ireland semi-final draw against Kerry.

We should have won today but were a bit fortunate to come away with a draw. The biggest factor in today’s match started to become apparent a few hours […]
