Wow nail biting stuff.

Great point at the end.

The GAA will be smiling at that. Selling tickets for a replay.

It sounds like it was quite the match now, I'll have to watch a recording for I was down in the RDS at the Irish Craft Beer and Cider Festival!

Had to make do with the radio myself where Marty Morrissey a.k.a Alfred E. Neuman who (though never quite matching his orgasm over katie Taylor in 2012 ) made it sound like the match of the century.
Who needs Kilkenny?
I hear the replay might be under lights.
Was really happy for Waterford in the minors and hope it leads on to a senior title in due course.
Great day for Munster hurling all round.

Brilliant second half. So exciting. Clare were the better more skillful team throughout but it nearly slipped away. Thank feck for that last point to send it to a replay.

I'll try to say little about the ref but if I was a Corkman I would have been overjoyed with the officiating today.

Echo Py's sentiment regarding Waterford. Good to see them bag that minor title.

Today we have the All Ireland Football Final, Dublin v Mayo at 3:30. Hopefully this will be a great game.

Mayo win the minor final beating Tyrone 2-13 to 1-13. Would be something to grab that double. I wouldn't be writing off the Dubs though. If I was forced to have a bet I think I'd be going with Dublin, just.

Pity this final isn't on BBC. I'd imagine there's plenty of people in NI who'd be interested in watching it and some of them may not have access to RTE.

Mind you if you don't have access to RTE you would be missing Joe Brolly. I reckon if he was posting in the "what annoys people?" thread he would write " Pat Spillane" :D

Most people have some way of getting RTE up here.

Good start by Mayo. Dubs shouldnt even have a point, silly free by Mayo.

Fair enough.

Anyway Mayo very quickly out of the traps here. However they have missed 3 point chances already. Could pay for that later.

Dubs usually come more into it through the second half when their fitness and class forwards start to tell against tiring defence.


Want to see McCaffrey getting the ball. Fecker is as fast as the wind. :D

Mayo should have been in for a goal there. They are going really well though. Dubs need to make sure they don't slip behind by any more than 4 or 5 points or it could be over for them. Mayo not likely to have a meltdown.

Mayo are well on top but making silly mistakes too. Dublin giving away far too many frees.
