Can anyone recommend anywhere in Kerry that would have plenty of self catering apartments to rent?

Castleross Hotel in Killarney does chalets. Also I believe there's self catering apartments in Glenbeigh and Cahirciveen as well. We rented a holiday home down in Cahirciveen a few times, lovely, but not overly cheap.

Those two minor finals looked great at the weekend. I only caught them on tg4 earlier. That Wexford ff looks like an absolute flier and he wasn’t even their best player. Limerick looked very strong too.

I didn't get to see it but the Clare lads (Clare Hurlers forum) are giving out about their coach playing a sweeper and them behind.

Was it that silly looking?

I was there, and yes, yes it was. And as with all these sweeper systems, the clever opposition left their best player as the free man, and he just hoovered ball up. Ludicrous stuff.

On that sweeper system why not just put your free man or the stickiest man marker on their sweeper? And push up, I know it leaves a two man fullback or halfback situation, but I find when you do that they normally revert back to 15 on 15

I suppose the thought process is that you're just creating more crowding. If you use the ball well in hurling, you can bypass the sweeper if you are prepared for it.

I'll be very surprised if Tipp win on Sunday. I got the impression that Limerick had a fair few more gears to go, and Tipps forwards don't appreciate the tightness of defenders like Limerick. Also Bonner Maher is a serious loss, he looked back to his industrious best, and I'm not sure if Barret will play or not. I'm heading into it, but I expect the Treaty to prevail.

Great win for the u20s tonight. Every silver lining is important at this stage.

Pretty sure he got the winner in the semi of the champions league. Can’t even mind who against but he was so awful at the time I remember being very surprised and thinking he would come good again but never did.

V Barca I think.

Rather harsh on Hanbury; struggled to get a run at the year and far from our worst performer. No great supporter of Glennon, but again, he's not been outrightly worse than some of the other off-form forwards.

Geoffrey Lynskey's progress with the U-20s will be eagerly anticipated, he should be in a good position to leverage those successful minor teams. However, I have a feeling Donohoe will stay on for another year, and it is speculated that there's antipathy between he and Lynskey, so how will the latter feel if he's preparing good players only for another to possibly reap the main rewards?

He probably won’t stay longer than that. Someone else might
get more out of them.

A lot of players lost form this year. Even the leaders. I’d say they are knackered.


I think it has gone like the rugby in terms of team plus replacements
and injury planning. We were unlucky with injuries in 18 and 19. Or maybe naive...

Not easy to blood new players into a winning team but I wouldn’t swap now for 2010

How did KK do it year after year? - I know structure different this past fee years but KK were back year after year after year.

Kilkenny had a phenomenal group of hurlers and leaders and it's only now with the likes of Tommy Walsh, JJ Delaney and Jackie Littlewoods out in media circles that you release that these lads were far from the Stepford wives that Donal O'g would have led you to believe.

They drove each other on and that group dynamic was maintained and controlled by Cody who also freshened up his backroom staff every two or three years as he went.


You got to remember Tipp had a panel probably comparable in terms of natural skill but only fleetingly were able to match Kilkenny in the other facets of the game.

It's hard to see their likes again.

I'd imagine that's exactly what we are seeing in the Dublin Footballers. There are certainly parallels. A ruthless manager, a steady trickle of new talents, massive leadership examples and competition for places. And finally a ruthless streak that ensures they never take the boot off the throat when they could.

Of course United are a massive club, and would still interest big players. They can afford massive wages, see Sachez, A, and have a global reach. The issue is they are probably not attractive in a football sense at the moment because of the uncertainty over the managerial position, the football 'operation' and the lack of Champions League. But all it takes is one good signing to make a big impact and the whole thing turns around again.

No sign of the two f**king tramps manfromdelmonte and Over the Bar.
6 times baby.

And there won't be. They won't be logging on in here at 6.30am on the Sunday morning the way they did last year  :) :) :)

Shite match, but winning the final is all that matters. That's the 8th European cup final I've watched Liverpool in and they were all pretty mundane matches, even with greats like Dalglish, Rush, Souness etc.  This match had to be won by hook or crook. Start of a glorious period for the club probably.

I like Spurs as a club and hope they taste success with Poch.  A great manager and a good guy.

Have to feel for Fearon tonight.
Istanbul hardly mundane!

I'm sure Sean Cox and his family were watching tonight and I hope it brought them some joy.
