Memories of the Galway Races — when summer reached its high point

Thu, Jul 21, 2022

I can still remember the exact point on the road where it first came into view. It was the highlight of my summer, every summer.

Through a child's eyes from the back-seat, looking between two adult heads, one belonging to my late uncle, John, the other belonging to one of his neighbours, over the dash and the car bonnet, it emerged like an ocean going liner on the horizon. The stand at Ballybrit, this was the setting for the cruise on which I would happily embark for the coming week.

Galway survive Cork challenge

Thu, Jun 23, 2022

The Galway senior hurlers will face Limerick in an All-Ireland semi-final for the second time in three years after escaping from Semple Stadium with a one point win over a wasteful Cork side last Saturday afternoon.

Considering Galway led from pillar to post against the pre-match favourites, it seems a tad harsh to say that the Tribesmen were fortunate to progress, but they did profit from a large slice of luck in the opening minute when man of the match Jack Grealish’s effort slipped through the hands of Cork ‘keeper Patrick Collins to the back of the net.
