This year’s crop from the Orchard

The thing about the minor grade is that it’s over for the players at this level nearly as soon as it starts, most players get one year at this level, the lucky ones get two. It doesn’t really allow for rivalries to build up over the years outside the natural provincial domain so going into Sunday’s All Ireland final the only rivalry to be sorted out on the field will be who want’s it more.

All Ireland finals left me feeling cheated

All-Ireland final day is one of the best days of the year. Well, it should be anyway. Three or four of us either go up Saturday for the Kilmacud Sevens or belt up early on Sunday morning. Last weekend due to family commitments we opted for the Sunday gig and were in Jurys opposite Croke Park well before noon. One of the men we travel with has a terrible fear of being late for games. Especially All-Irelands. He got left behind as a youngster after he missed a plane, and despite huge amounts of counselling, he has never got over it. So there we were. In good form and in good time, all set up for what should have been a most memorable day.
