Game day – major challenge, massive opportunity

Today’s the day. We’re back on the big stage, with a huge challenge facing us this afternoon at Croke Park but one that also presents us with a great opportunity in this year’s Championship. Five-in-a-row chasing Dublin are, rightly, strong favourites to beat us today. Why would it be otherwise? We haven’t taken them down in the Championship since we […]

Minors and ladies both advance
