The ‘weaker’ hurling counties must take inspiration from Dublin's success

Neither of last Sunday's hurling quarter finals was anything to write home about in terms of quality, however the victors, Dublin and Waterford, will not be too worried about that. Both teams have suffered heavy defeats in their provincial finals but they will be quickly forgotten now. The two winning managers Anthony Daly and David Fitzgerald will be heroes once again in their adopted counties. I take my hat off to both of them for different reasons.

Nowhere to Hyde on Sunday

image preview

With a sell out crowd of 30,000 expected to head to Hyde Park on Sunday, there will be nowhere to hide for Mayo as they aim to dethrone Fergal O’Donnell’s defending Connacht champions on their home patch.

image preview

It was mixed fortunes for Kilkenny hurling last weekend. The county side got off to the best possible start in the league when they proved too strong for All-Ireland champions Tipperary. While on Sunday both John Lockes of Callan and Dicksboro saw their All-Ireland aspirations go up in smoke against their Cork counterparts.

‘Henceforth Irish is to be the language of Tawin’

image preview

As letter writers to newspapers know, as soon as you make your point, and satisfied that it is the only salient point worth making, you can be brought back to reality smartly by a riposte! Sir Roger Casement’s letter in the Irish language newspaper An Claidheamh Soluis, in the late summer of 1904, was a hard hitting criticism of the attitude of those parents who favoured that their children learned to speak English, instead of Irish. “The general mass of the Irish speaking parents have kicked the language out of doors.” He fully supported the struggle of the people of Tawin, a small island on the east side of Galway Bay, who had withdrawn their children from the local national school because they wanted their children educated through Irish. As a result the authorities withdrew the schoolmistress, and the school, unused for years, fell into disrepair. They warned the islanders that if they wanted the school to re-open they had to pay for its repair.
