What a win for Tipp minors!

I'm currently reading a book on the United Ireland subject. It's named, Making Sense of a United Ireland by Brendan O'Leary. It's a bit dry but interesting all the same.

I think if we're full strength we'll give them a fair rattle.

I don't think Derry could have got Donegal.

Decent draw for the Ulster teams.

Aye, I'm just after editing my post when I realised that. Too slow :)

Would have preferred Donegal but at least we avoided Dublin :) All though it's not clear if could have gotten Donegal anyway. Kerry couldn't play Louth so you wonder why they even bothered with the third phase draw?

Great performance. I thought we'd run them close but I didn't see us winning. I feared that the game was coming a couple of weeks too early for us. I really hope Murray isn't injured. He has the potential to take a lot of pressure off Shane. Hopefully we can avoid Dublin in the quarters.

Great victory for us today. Very few gave us a chance.

Aye, we're showing signs of getting back to where we were at the end of the league.

Ye'll be back to where ye were next week when ye bate Mayo in extra time.  ;D

I don't think it matters who wins this now. Neither will be in good enough shape to handle 3 more games. There's always next year 😀

Disgusting decision for the penalty. Ball kicked into McKindless who did not lift his foot and Lynch gets the card. Absolutely clueless

Quote from: GTP on June 14, 2024, 02:22:00 PMI would have thought no point naming McEvoy on the team if he wasn't available, 

I agree but that's what they've done for the last two games. Some sort of mind games? It doesn't hurt anyone other than Derry.

Hard to see McEvoy starting as he seemed to be limping along the sideline at the Armagh game. That's the third game they've named him and he hasn't even been togged in the previous two.

Armagh well in control of this one. Probably should be further ahead.
