The Clare - Galway game is very good. Didnít expect to enjoy it.

What takings?   ;)

I presume AIG are bankrolling this venture.

It's too small and tight as a game. I watched Tipp and Clare, and while it was exciting enough in terms of the result, the game was very messy. The rows look very staged as well.

The scoring system is interesting.

Imagine if the Irish immigrants had introduced hurling rather than Halloween into american culture
"you can try and intimidate us, but f**k youse, we're going to win an All-Ireland anyway"
