Yerra doesn't sound natural from a Connacht person ::)

Pressure is on Galway , lots of write ups over the last few weeks about them , the latest being Peter canavan saying if they met Mayo in a final they’d beat them . All or nothing now for Padraigeen and his band of fancy dans .
Because of a few articles?!  ;D
That won't make a blind bit of difference compared to the internal motivation to win for themselves after the disappointment of last year. There was a load of write ups about how Mayo had the job done once they had slain the Dublin dragon and it was "only" Tyrone between them and the holy grail. They still failed to win, were absolutely devastated afterwards but it hasn't stopped them coming back as one of the top contenders this year. Rather than "All or nothing now" for this year, we need to ensure that Galway get back to semi-final and final level much more regularly than has been managed over the last twenty years, the lack of experience of a AI final meant that, unfortunately, the match simply passed a good number of players by.

First time we were called that was 1998.

Pressure was on Galway the first game against Tyrone to get a win. I expect Galway to do enough to see them past Westmeath. Media are looking for a story, so they are talking up Westmeath without any real basis.

Indeed. Kerry folk normally have a bucketful more nuance for starters

Every word a Kerryman utters has at least 6 different meanings.

I think the Dublin 6 in a row arsed up a lot of traditions including the traditional All Ireland apprenticeship. Counties would emerge and do semi final one year then final next and maybe win in the third year. Both Tyrone and Kerry lost all Irelands before they won in 21 and 22 respectively.   Kerry had an awful lot of mi adh against that Dublin team and they are not a particularly strong Kerry team but they did have more experience last year.

All about Galway this year. Ye can call it yerra or whatever you want , they’re the team most people fancy . Sean Kelly the best defender in the land , Walsh , comer , Tierney and finnerty , first two X factor footballers other two would make any starting 15 in the country . Cian o neill has them primed for glory . If Dublin can reignite the flame , it will be some final (if avoided before final ) , can’t see anyone else spoiling the party in Tuam on 31st July .

Musha would be more Connemara Galway; arragh/ara as in “arragh go and shite” would be more widespread.

More efficient dans than fancy dans nowadays.

Arra and dhera are the same word.
Lookit is very Connacht.

Look what they did to Wexford on Sunday.
