Dublin on the final frontier once more

Photo: We didn’t have long to wait this afternoon to find out who our opponents will be in this year’s All-Ireland final. Five minutes into what turned into a truly forgettable semi-final Con O’Callaghan blasted the ball to the net and Tyrone were goosed. Mickey Harte’s team were worse than awful today. No ambition, no attacking plan, no match at […]

The final four in this year’s championship are a familiar bunch. Dublin, […]

The coming weekend’s action

I’ve just done a quick scan of all the matches involving the county this coming weekend and it’s a bit of a list. It’s worth, then, providing an overview of what’s on so you can check the diary and see which ones you might be able to make. First up is the double-header at Tuam Stadium on Saturday. The curtain-raiser there […]

Thinking ahead to Tipp
