The Galway senior footballers are in action this Saturday evening (6pm) in Salthill against Monaghan in the final game of the All-Ireland quarter-finals. It will also be Galway's last home game of the season so all maroon GAA supporters should make the effort to get to Pearse Stadium to cheer their side on.
The Galway senior footballers may have been beaten by Dublin on Sunday by 0-18 to 0-14 in the division one league final, but it was a productive and instructive day for Kevin Walsh, his management team, and the squad.
This Sunday the Galway senior footballers take on All-Ireland champions Dublin in Croke Park in the Allianz Football League division one final (4pm).
Having already qualified for the league final against Dublin on April 1 in Croke Park, the Galway footballers head to Newbridge this Sunday (3pm) to take on already-relegated Kildare in what is effectively a dead rubber game.
The Galway footballers are in action against three-in-a-row All-Ireland champions Dublin this Sunday at Pearse Stadium (2pm).
Only time will tell if Storm Emma, or the Beast from the East, were a blessing in disguise or a burden in the plight of the Mayo footballers' quest to stay in division one of the league.
This football lark does not get any easier does it. The feeling of sick in the pit of my stomach the morning after an All-Ireland final is an all too familiar feeling now after Mayo suffered another agonising one point defeat to Dublin in another All-Ireland final. The margin of loss makes it even more difficult to take. The level of Mayo's performance makes it hard to comprehend they did not win the game. Every mistake and refereeing decision will be scrutinised and placed under the microscope for years to come.
Between the years 1947 and 1955 Rocky Marciano entered the squared circle 49 times and remained undefeated against all challengers. The reasons are many, including his relentless fighting style, punching power, stamina, and iron chin. However, at the end of his career, 49 pros had thrown everything they had at him, and he always found a way to survive. And win. Retiring with a perfect record 49-0 and an 88 per cent knockout rate, he stands as one of the undisputed greatest boxers of all time. Dublin footballers now stand on the cusp of such immortality with a possible three in a row of titles on the horizon.
"We’ll be competitive and we’ll be looking for a performance every day that we go out and we can be honest in ourselves and we did ourselves and the county proud and we’re going the right direction towards what our goals will be.” That's what Stephen Rochford said back in December 2015 — two days after he was appointed Mayo manager. While there have been days when things haven't quite gone to plan they have always been "honest" in themselves as a team and that's what has brought them to where they are right now, 70 minutes away from their final goal.
All-Ireland final fever is here. I still have to pinch myself to contemplate that Mayo are back in the football showpiece again. Looking at Mayo's run to the final you'd almost forget that it started against Sligo in Castlebar on May 21. The ticket fiasco is still the same, however, with most Mayo folk willing to beg, borrow, or steal to get their hands on that elusive golden ticket. Some novel efforts took to Tinder looking for a female acquaintance, the only catch was they had to have a spare ticket for the game. The most desperate are offering their spouses in return for a match day pass, it's all part of the fun, it's all part of the build up.
