Dublin 1-17 Mayo 1-16: heartbreak ending yet again

So near and yet so far. For the third time in five years, we’ve come up short in a final against Dublin by a single, miserable point. Sport sure can be horribly, unforgivably cruel at times. We certainly know this more than most. You’ll understand, I’m sure, that I’m in no fit state right now to spend the time that […]

Mayo 2-16 Kerry 0-17: Kingdom conquered

These are the days of our lives. We’ve known for a fair while what a special team this is but this year has proven the point beyond doubt.

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 […]

While this is our seventh semi-final appearance in succession for Kerry it’s their fifth on the trot. Back in 2012 Donegal took […]
