Where am I? What day of the week is it? Where’s the sun gone to? And where’s that coffee I need so badly to kick-start me into action?
Right, from what I gather it’s Saturday and a wet and windy one at that up here in the capital. The same kind of conditions, in other words, that prevailed at MacHale Park last night, where the pitch cut up badly and twelve-man Galway held out in the storm to record a third successive win over us.
There’s a good bit of coverage in the media about last night’s game so, in the usual format, here’s what I’ve been able to find in terms of words, pictures and the rest.
Right, that’s your lot. All those links, by the way, are also filed away in the results section of the site as what will become Year 117 of the results archive begins to take shape.
In this mad world of pre-season fixture scheduling, of course, the day after a match doubles up as the day before one too. So there’s little time to brood about last night’s loss given that the next challenge is now looming clearly into view.
Before you ask, I don’t have any news as yet about the team for tomorrow’s match against Roscommon. I am, however, hugely looking forward to hitting the road for Hyde Park in the morning to get my first view of the new year action for myself.
