Shook hands with a legend beside the 9th green. Yes it could only be Seamus Darby. And a few Uibh Fhaili jerseys spotted around Amen Corner.

Re: Brian Gavin

I suppose you are right, better to duck our heads in the sand and continue to moan about it, and the lack of referees, and poor refereeing.

Re: Support for Longford Game

Best of luck to all involved out there tomorrow. Will be listening on Radio 3 across the Atlantic for this one.

Re: Offaly Senior Club Championship

Ferbane, Clara, Rhode and Edenderry should all come out on top in the Senior. In the Senior B, the tie of the round looks like Shamrocks v Walsh Island, both teams eager to get back up to Senior. I'd fancy Walsh Island to win by a point or two. In the other ties, Tubber, Raheen and Durrow should com...

Re: football championship 2014

Possible options: (1) Restrict number of consecutive hand passes (restriction to one is probably too harsh) (1) Restrict zones of hand-passing (Hand-pass...
