Also Ned Rea who won an AI medal with Limerick in 1973. Big strong FF in an era where big FFs were the order of the day. His pub near Heuston station was a good haunt for hurling chat.

2 Cork football Semis live on the Irish Examiner via Youtube https://t.co/NT9OUr30n4?amp=1

Great finish to the Barrs v Castlehaven game. Barrs win 5-4:on penalties after extra time. Barrs goalie John Kerins son of the late John made a brilliant save and then scored the final penalty. Entertaining stuff all round.

Clonakilty surprise winners of the other semi.

Yesterday marked 25 years since TG4 was launched. It is worth acknowledging the great coverage it has given to GAA club games across the country.  Maith sibh TG4!

Don’t know why one should be embarrassed. Today’s foursomes was closer and a bit more competitive. Europe had chances but did not take them. It’s only the margin of victory that is in doubt now. Too many European players not at the level of what US have.

5 down after 5. Terrible putting from Rory.

I only caught bits of both semis so watched back during the week. You could make a case for either side but I feel Mayo have a bit more to offer and especially in ET looked better while Tyrone looked like they were hanging on. Both teams got decisive breaks in their semis and today’s winners could well be the team that gets breaks - fortunate goal, goalkeeper error, black card, ref decisions etc. Good luck to both teams and great to have neither Dubs or Kingdom around the place. And to our neighbours enjoy the celebrations - I will be glad for some of my Mayo friends if they win - normal detest will return next year!

I read that article as I was curious how did she get caught, did the dog make a complaint or what happened. The mind boggles.
Think the cops got a lead

I gather the dogs 🐕 in the street knew about it😜
