Meath…0-13 Kerry…0-14 The half time decision of the Kerry mentors to transfer free taking duties to centre forward Jackie Horgan was ultimately their salvation and Meath’s undoing in this Very Ireland NCL Div. 2A Final at Croke Park. To add insult to injury, thanks to the unjust system which appears to prevail in both Camogie… Read More Hotshot Horgan leaves Meath in Heartbreak Hotel
Meath…1-09 Derry…0-10 For as long as this hack has been on the GAA ‘circuit’, Derry teams have had something of an Indian sign over Meath. The All Ireland SFC semi final of 1987 was before my time and throughout Sean Boylan’s long tenure with the county team I am fairly certain we never overcame the… Read More Camogs head for Croker
Meath…0-11 Cavan…1-07 While the county’s lady footballers came up short in Ballinlough against Waterford yesterday, 24 hours earlier, Brendan Skehan’s county Camogie team had better luck over the road in Moylagh when they edged out Cavan in their National League Div. 2B encounter. Meath face Derry in their final regulation game at Donaghmore/Ashbourne in what… Read More Meath make it a fruitless short trip for Cavan
Meath… 2-13 Westmeath… 1-06 Don’t let anybody tell you the day of the dual player is no more.

During my long stint as PRO/Assistant PRO of our club, during the summer months in particular, it wouldn’t be unusual for myself and da to be at 10, 11 or a dozen matches in a week. Not that anything was ever thought of it because it was very much a labour of love and never… Read More Oh Mary these fixtures are an absolute farce
This Cork camogie player had a glittering career on the pitch and has developed an equally successful one off it. https://mywordle.strivemath.com/?word=csruj
As most or all of you will know by now, I lost my da on June 10th. Six months into his 92nd year. Don’t let anyone ever tell you you’re ready for it, you never are. When the inevitability of what was ahead became obvious a day or two before he actually passed, this corner… Read More Oddities and unfairness – that’s the GAA folks!
Debate and rancour surrounding GAA fixtures has a lifespan as flexible as time itself. No matter what new systems are trialled – and no matter how convoluted they seem to be – the business end of club competitions in most counties seems to boil down to this time of year. Which leads to the type… Read More The mother and father of good weekends!
There’s a story which has by now become folklore pertaining to when #SeanBoylan took over as #Meath senior football manager. The gist of which was, that certain senior individuals within the group of players – who shall remain nameless – informed the #Dunboyne man that if he stuck around long enough, they’d make a manager… Read More Culture construction will only take matters so far
