Back in the day when lads of my own age were involved in GAA at Juvenile level – and for decades before that probably – it wasn’t uncommon for a mentor from one of the competing teams to step in as referee. As when anybody takes up the whistle they are of course admired and… Read More Underage proposals are well intentioned but pointed in the wrong direction
Anyone who has been perusing material in this space for long enough will undoubtedly have seen reference made to the Corner House. That being my father’s ancestral family home. A book could and maybe one day will be produced on how beloved the old place was to me. Its appearance here today pertains to the… Read More A product is only as good as how it’s manufactured
Meath…0-24 Sligo…0-18 Throughout what has been a very successful season for Seoirse Bulfin’s Meath senior hurlers so far, one of the recurring themes often referenced by yours truly has been their continued ability to amass big tallies of scores. Of course there have been other factors in their fine form but it seems to be… Read More Free scoring Meath earn deserved Final shot
With Guest Contributor Paraic Farrelly (@FarrellyParaic1 on Twitter) The more things change, the more they stay the same. Laois defeating Meath in the first round of the 1992 Leinster SFC is as fresh in the mind today as the shock was when it happened. To an impressionable 11-year-old, this wasn’t supposed to happen. For the… Read More Another go at solving the unanswerable question
Meath… 3-14 Wexford… 1-11 Outside of sport and farming, it might come as a surprise to some to know that my favourite other type of television is True Crime. Thus, Sky Crime, Crime And Investigation and CBS Reality are among the saved channels on the Sky Box. Meaning that phrases like DNA and Forensic Invesitagation… Read More Your DNA doesn’t change… thankfully!
Meath… 0-15 Laois… 0-05 Take Kevin De Bruyne, Ruben Dias and Erling Haaland out of the Manchester City team, they don’t win their fifth Premier League title in six years. Send Limerick out shorn of Declan Hannon, Gearoid Hegarty and Aaron Gillane and they wouldn’t know Liam Mac Carthy as well as they do. Now… Read More Return of three jewels boost hopes of holding onto the crown
Meath… 0-28 Tyrone… 0-20 When putting up the ‘Check In’ post on Facebook upon arrival at Pairc Tailteann early on Saturday evening, no secret was made of the reality that one was unsure what, if any, of the sliotar the one seeing eye here would be able to pick up. It being a first match… Read More Meath nearly hit a score for every player on the pitch
Meath… 1-19 Tipperary… 0-11 In many ways, Meath were on a hiding to nothing this evening. They were expected to win and win well. Having done so, it’s very much a case of taking care of business. If they hadn’t, it would’ve been a case of wigs on the Fair Green. Doubtless, when the locals… Read More No Gray areas as Meath take care of business
Sean Geraghty coming in as a direct replacement for the suspended James Toher is the only change to the Meath senior hurling team from that which defeated Derry ahead of Saturday’s encounter against Tyrone at Pairc Tailteann. That means that the great Mickey Burke is in line for what will be his 197th outing in… Read More Meath leave well enough alone where possible
The thing that surprised me most was the fact that it took a very open, honest interview with Wexford legend Tom Dempsey for me to catch onto and agree with the point he was making. To go forward with this production we must first go back. What is probably more years than any of us… Read More You don’t pay for a cow’s silage when ordering a litre of milk!
