More on the minors

There’s oodles of stuff, as you’d expect, in this week’s Mayo News about the minor replay and, as you’d also expect, most of it is of the wistful variety.  Sean Rice did the match report and some analysis, Austin Garvin did some more analysis, An Spailpín did his now usual fan’s eye piece and Daniel Carey did the after-match reaction […]

Ray’s reaction

Ray Dempsey has a few after-match comments in today’s Sunday Indo that are worth an airing here.  It’s no surprise to see that he paid fulsome tribute to his young charges following their emotionally charged extra-time defeat to Tyrone yesterday afternoon in Longford.  He made specific reference to the team’s winning mentality and expressed the opinion that, although defeat was […]

Replay will be shown live on RTE

Saturday’s All-Ireland minor football replay will be broadcast live on RTE (presumably on RTE 2), though I’m not sure if they’re giving it the full Podge and Rodge Sunday Saturday Game Live treatment. Coverage gets underway at 2.15pm ahead of the 2.30pm throw-in at Pearse Park. It’s good that it’s on the telly but those of you who are able-bodied […]
