Four Provincial Championship Finals – One Massive Preview

By Ryan Corry June 29, 2017 (No)
After last weekends semi-finals were decided, the wheels were in motion for all of the 2017 GAA Senior Football Championship provincial finals. It’s been a hectic few months for players, battling in and out of the AIB Club Championship and fighting through the Allianz Football League. But of all the matches that have been played, none share the significance of the games ahead. A win for each county will take the pride of the province and secure a place at the All-Ireland Senior Football Championship quarter-finals in just under a months time. Let’s have a look at these four massive finals and what the fans can look forward to over […]

Surefire Signs That You’re a Lightweight Drinker

By Andy Leech May 18, 2017 (No)
The booming bass and entrancing, repetitive lyrics, drowns out the clink of shot glasses. Somewhere out there, in a reserved and unwelcoming realm known as reality, the church bell rings to signify the passing of one hour from midnight. Blurred vision, sticky hands, sticky floor, ringing ears. Small-talk with old friends, who are now acquaintances, soon to be strangers – “you’re out for the night, are ye?” Hands in the air, head back, the crowd becomes one with the music. One hundred different sprays of male and female perfumes hangs in the air like a perfect smog. If only there was a way of bottling this feeling. “I fucking love […]

Dublin v Kerry National League Division 1 Final – Preview

By Andy Leech April 8, 2017 (No)
Of course, it shouldn’t come as any surprise to us that teams playing other teams that are at a similar level, lends itself to entertaining and exciting viewing. With five minutes left of league action last Sunday, Monaghan and Donegal both had a couple of their respective limbs in the division one showdown. But impressive comebacks from Mayo and Dublin altered the pairing for the head-to-head, completely. Mayo finished in 5th in the league standings, which would have surprised and disappointed many on the west coast, was it not for the fact that they only missed out on qualification for the final on score difference. The competitive nature of the […]

Dublin’s Greatest Football Team… Heffo’s Army or Gavin’s Gang?

By Andy Leech March 31, 2017 (No)
Dublin were waltzing their way into the history books, yet there was a noticeable lull in the Croke Park atmosphere. Beating a young and timid Roscommon team by 35 points does not surprise nor excite The Hill anymore. Not only do they expect it, there is a cohort of Dublin fans growing up who don’t know any different. They forget the eons in the wilderness. The Royal neighbour collecting All-Irelands. The false dawns. The Croke Park annihilations. The sixteen barren years. But when Kevin McManamon picked up the ball on the 21 and ran straight at a tired Kerry defence in the 2011 All-Ireland final, it all changed. Two years […]

The 2017 AIB GAA Football Club Championship Final

By Dean Fitzgerald March 17, 2017 (No)
Friday 17th March, on the traditional day of St. Patrick, is the date for the AIB GAA football club championship final, as Slaughtneil of Derry take on Dr. Crokes from Kerry in Croke Park (TG4, throw-in 5pm). This is the day when a year’s worth of blood, sweat, tears, mud, more sweat, and what feels like 5,400 laps of pitches culminates in the final battle to decide which team is the best in the nation in 2016/17, all while everyone else plays the next season’s league games. But let’s not focus on that. It has truly been a rollercoaster ride this season in the latter stages of the championship. Favourites […]

2017 AIB Football All-Ireland Club Championship: Semi-Final Previews

By Dean Fitzgerald February 11, 2017 (No)
‘Here we all are now, all the lads’, as Fr.Todd Unctious would say. It’s time for the 2017 AIB Football All-Ireland Club Championships Semi-Finals and by god it feels like a long time since the provincials were played. ‘I thought the Dublin team already won it’ I hear you say?’ Well no they didn’t, that was the Leinster, again. By the time the first ball is thrown in on Saturday February 11th, it will be 2 months since any of these teams have played a championship game. Bit ridiculous really isn’t it? But that’s a story for another day. Each of these teams have been excellent, with Galway’s Corofin, Dublin’s […]
