Galway hurlers can see off Limerick to win sixth senior title

image preview

Watching the third episode of the documentary The Game on RTÉ One it was lovely to look back at Joe Connolly's rousing speech in 1980 after that team won the All-Ireland final and broke into the top tier of hurling again.

Tribesmen bring Liam home in style

At times it was sparkling, others nerve wracking, but at the end of the day it was just brilliant as Galway ended a 29-year wait to bring the Liam MacCarthy Cup west of the Shannon for the fifth time.

Tribesmen bring Liam home in style

At times it was sparkling, others nerve wracking but at the end of the day it was just brilliant as Galway ended a 29-year wait to bring the Liam McCarthy Cup west of the Shannon for the fifth time. Three minutes in looked like they might do it the easy way, hitting Waterford for three points in the opening 180 seconds, but once Kevin Moran got in behind the Galway defence and drove the ball low past Colm Callanan in the Galway goal to kick life into what looked like a startled Waterford, it was game on.

Galway hurlers, the 1950 team

image preview

Galway featured in the first All-Ireland hurling final in 1887 when they were beaten by Tipperary. Their first victory in a final came in 1924 when they won the 1923 decider. They played that day in blue and gold colours. They were known on other occasions to tog out in black and amber jerseys. In the 1930s the GAA decided that each county should adopt its own colours, and as UCG had won the Sigerson that year, and their captain was on the County senior team, it was decided that Galway would play from then on in maroon and white, the colours of UCG.

Why the impasse at the Sportsground?

What a difference a season makes. Connacht Rugby kicks off its new Pro 12 campaign on Saturday as reigning champions for the first time. No doubt there are still some players and many more supporters who are still pinching themselves to make sure last season's heroic campaign is for real. It is the same feeling Joe Connolly must have felt when he lifted the McCarthy Cup in 1980 - some 57 years after Galway last won the All Ireland - or when Galway United won the FAI Cup in 1991.

The woman who brought the Rose of Tralee title to Galway for the first time in 1980 (and proved a good luck emblem for the hurlers two weeks later) is to be a judge at this year’s International Rose of Tralee Festival.

Absorb the creation of memories

image preview

It’s all about time. Everything is. Days, hours, minutes, seconds, years. Time plays such a key role in how we create memories, about how we anticipate them. We use and abuse time in so many ways. We rush from A to B to get there a minute early, then waste many minutes doodling or daydreaming when we get to B.  We place value on time and then deride that value.
