We’re two days on from the replay win over Kerry and there’s a thicket of fawning guff about the Dubs to wade through in the media but Saturday’s win was one that put us through to our second All-Ireland final appearance on the trot. It’s definitely worth, then, spending a bit of time looking back on the match reports and other coverage on the win. Here’s a flavour of what’s been written about it.
Nationals: Sunday Independent – match report, post-match quotes from Stephen Rochford and Eamonn Fitzmaurice, Dermot Crowe, Colm O’Rourke, Eamonn Sweeney (worth reading just to see him squirm), Irish Independent – match report, Billy Keane. Irish Examiner – match report, John Fogarty, Brendan O’Brien, Colm Cooper, post-match quotes. Irish Times – match report, Keith Duggan.
Others: GAA (match report, post-match quotes from Stephen Rochford and Eamonn Fitzmaurice), RTÉ (match report, post-match quotes from Stephen Rochford, Cillian O’Connor and Eamonn Fitzmaurice), The 42 (live blog, match report, talking points, post-match quotes from Stephen Rochford and Eamonn Fitzmaurice).
Stats: Don’t Foul.
