  2. Championship Round-up

    Championship Round-up

    The Boot of David

    Whether it is in the Kerry jersey, the Fossa jersey or the red of divisional side East Kerry, David Clifford is a man worth watching. The divisional team is a species unique to Cork and Kerry which allows players from lower-tier GAA clubs to play in the senior championship. It has been trialed in other counties without success, but in the two southern counties, it is thriving. The Cork senior hurling and football championships have featured two divisional teams in the respective finals this year.

    After a 20 year wait, East Kerry defeated Dr Croke’s to win the Kerry senior club football championship thanks to the boot of David Clifford and the promptings of his playmaking brother Paudie. To be truthful it wasn’t just the boot of David, it was also his hands, his athleticism, and his movement. However, as East Kerry is a divisional side, they will not go on to represent Kerry in Munster, instead, Austin stacks will take on Nemo Ranges.

    Retro is in. It’s the new fashionable. And what’s more retro than a 1983 FA Ireland soccer jersey? O’Neills supplied the Ireland team from 1980 to 1984. The classic O’Neills branding, old school crest, and the three-stripe sleeve design makes this jersey every hipster’s dream.

  5. Championship Fever

    Championship Fever
    Life grinds to a halt when the championship comes around, and all conversation inevitably leads to one subject. Championship. A trip to the supermarket can end up in an hour-long discussion on team selection, but we wouldn’t have it any other way.

  9. Club Finals Super Sunday

    Club Finals Super Sunday

    What’s better than two GAA matches on a Sunday? Twenty! Sunday was all about the club finals, with twenty being decided around the country. We saw gasping last-minute equalisers, early goals, unlikely comebacks, and resounding wins. One thing is for sure when a player pulls on their club jersey in a county final, they aim to pull out all stops to lift the silverware after the final whistle. Heartbreak, passion, prayers and powering to glory, this weekend had it all.


    Play it again

    Ballybofey played host to a tense affair between Naomh Conaill and reigning Ulster champions, Gaoth Dobhair. Points from Niall MacAoidh and Gavin MacGiolla Bhride gave the reigning Ulster champions Gaoth Dobhair a two-point lead coming down the home straight, but the Glenties men weren’t giving up that easy. A free from Eoghan McGettigan and an almighty kick from a 45 by Thompson sent the match to a replay next Sunday. &nbsp
