Kilkenny’s brilliant victory overshadowed by Shefflin’s agony

Kilkenny's drive for five is still very much alive after their empathic victory over Cork in the All-Ireland semi-final last Sunday. The victory was great but the sight of Brian Hogan and Henry Shefflin leaving the action injured dampened the celebrations.

Proud Rebels teach Tipperary and pundits a lesson

Humble pie was what I had to eat for supper Sunday evening after Cork's landslide victory over Tipperary. Yes I'll hold my hands up, I for one didn't see this coming and judging by Tipperary's performance they didn't see it coming either.

Is this the end of the road for Loughnane?

So will the Ger Loughnane era conclude without silverware or even a scalp? Deliberation surrounded Tuesday night's Hurling Board meeting, but the topic hasn't been completely resolved. Loughnane is expected to meet with officials soon for a crucial discussion where future intentions will be revealed.

Tipperary may be Munster champs but Cork show the fight is not over yet

Since my last column two weeks ago, Tipp have reclaimed the Munster title after a solid performance against Clare in the final. They, like Kilkenny, can sit back and watch the remaining contenders battle it out for the remaining two semi-final spots.

Kilkenny may be champs

The national hurling league swung into action last Sunday without All-Ireland champions Kilkenny, heavy snow that fell early on Sunday morning put a stop to their involvement. I'm sure everyone connected to the set-up would have been disappointed not to make it to Pearse Stadium in Galway but player safety has to be paramount in those situations.

Eight teams remain in contention for All-Ireland glory after last weekend’s busy schedule. The main event was the 120th playing of the Munster Hurling Final. Considering the importance of Thurles to the GAA, it was probably fitting that the home county Tipperary landed the spoils.

An A-Z glimpse at the GAA 2009


Time to pick things up again

The beauty of the National Football League is that you can dust yourself down after a particularly bad performance and within a week or two you are presented with another opportunity to redeem yourself. I know the Mayo lads were hurting after their defeat against Derry in Ballina two weeks ago, so there shouldn’t be too much energy expended in getting their heads right for this one. I was speaking to a few of the players after the Derry game and they were understandably annoyed that they didn’t get off to a winning start.

Galway’s first hurling championship win over Cork since 2002 has prompted renewed hope in the county’s senior hurlers. However John McIntyre’s evolving team has little time to enjoy Saturday’s 1-19 to 0-15 victory over Cork as they head to Semple Stadium for their next assignment, an All Ireland hurling quarter-final with Waterford, on Sunday.
