Your GAA highlight of 2017
« on: November 30, 2017, 09:38:25 AM »
Seeing as the year is over for most club activities, apart from a few under 21 competitions, provincial championship finals in Leinster and the ladies all Ireland club I'm wondering what your highlight was.

Needless to say mine was beating Kerry. It was a long time coming and it made up for 2014. Unfortunately it was the semi final and not the final. Someday maybe.

For me it was at the ladies final and there were loads of Tyrone fans sitting around us in the premium level so I try to get them to sing.

"CCCCCCCCOoooooooooome on Tyyyyyyyyyrone
CCCCCCCCOoooooooooome on Tyyyyyyyyyrone
CCCCCCCCOoooooooooome on Tyyyyyyyyyrone     TYYYYYRONE !!!"

Not a word from anyone else.
So I tried again

"CCCCCCCCOoooooooooome on Tyyyyyyyyyrone
CCCCCCCCOoooooooooome on Tyyyyyyyyyrone
DONT LET ME SING ON MY OWN"

And it got a big cheer!

Lowest point was being 15 mins late waiting on my son to come from a birthday party to bring him in to the Tyrone v Dublin game which we were all looking forward to ALL YEAR and when we got to our seats the game was over. I couldn't even have a pint.

Probably it was watching young Mulgrew's goals against Armagh and thinking do we have the forwards after all.

Was a so so year for us but the win final game of the league away to armagh with last kick of the ball to win by one and get unlikeliest promotion was special. Also special mention to the game in cavan where we came from 6 down in brefini at ht to win. Shows the progression we are making I suppose that promotion and a championship win away against a good side is a bit of a meh year

Delighted for all Galway hurling fraternity and especially Micheál Donoghue who'd a whole pile of shite said about him after last years semi-final defeat.

The Feakle man should learn to shut his gub and stick to talking about the actual hurling rather than get personal!

Cork beating Tipp in the 1st round in Munster Hurling Championship. Cork's stock had gone so low that winning that proved they could compete and not slipping further under the water as was feared.
