Kilkenny/Cork games are always 50/50

Kilkenny intermediates’ great victory over Dublin after extra time last Saturday afternoon means once again it's a clean sweep of provincial titles. This achievement in itself would satisfy most hurling counties, but in Kilkenny the players are only too aware that their greatness is judged on their ability to land All-Ireland titles. Pressure it may be but that's the reality you face when you pull on the famous black and amber shirt. This Sunday, both the seniors and minors head to Croker hoping they can get the job done which would give them a tilt at All-Ireland glory.

One yellow now and you walk

Last weekend was a big one for the GAA. Special Congress made some very real and important decisions and in my opinion most of them were of a very progressive nature.

Strikes, failed drugs test... what’s next for the GAA

Once upon a time the winter months or the closed season as we will call it in the GAA was a tad dull and boring.

'08 the year of the Cat

Standing in Paric Lactain in Freshford last January watching a young, fit Antrim side lower Kilkenny's colours in the Walsh Cup didn't leave anyone too upset, most people acknowledged that our warriors had just returned from what is now their annual team holiday and that it would take a few training sessions to shake off the cobwebs. Being honest, Kilkenny fans knew that this bunch of Kilkenny players would bust a gut later in the year to land the 3-in-a-row but I don't think anyone could have envisaged exactly what lay ahead for Kilkenny hurling.

Christmas has come and gone once again, the year '08 has also elapsed but it was one that will never be forgotten by Kilkenny fans.

Galway face Cats in first real test of the season

The hurling year might only be a couple of weeks old, but tough tasks are arriving thick and fast for Galway.

Cats reclaim Walsh Cup with a cracking season in store for all

Kilkenny reclaimed the Walsh Cup last Sunday after edging out Galway in extra time in a thrilling encounter in Pairc Lactain, Freshford. It may have only been the first Sunday in February but if this game is anything to go by we're in for some cracking action this year. On a bitterly cold afternoon around three thousands souls braved the elements and got full value for their €10 admission fee.

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. The snow and icy conditions seemed to have caught everyone off guard. I'm sure if they had anticipated this scenario they might have elected to make the trip on Saturday afternoon.
