Are there any decent and insightful GAA blogs out there? Would like to extend the aul' reading list!

Are there blogs out there about the game?  I haven’t seen any and love to read.

I enjoy regular reflection columns the best – good writers with a different perspective on games. There are some poor ones out there with very mundane and obvious “apple pie” content but I think we are blessed with some good stuff.

Regulars I like at the minute:

Michael Foley

https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/sorry-the-article-you-were-trying-to-read-was-free-only-for-a-limited-time-b70qpw2kj

Great piece on a pilgrimage to Clones. He’s great every week.

Mike Quirke

https://www.irishexaminer.com/sport/columnists/mike-quirke/kerrys-elder-statesmen-need-to-prove-their-worth-472855.html

Always insightful in the examiner

Aidan O’Rourke

https://www.rte.ie/sport/gaa/2018/0723/980446-kerry-have-been-caught-in-their-own-web-of-naivety/

More detailed analysis stuff on RTE. Kerry today but recently Tyrone, Monaghan, Galway and Donegal

Darragh o’se

on the Dubs. Can be hit and miss but his good ones are very good.

He is excellent, thanks for heads up where he writes, just took an online subscription, for a few months.

Mayogaablog is very good but maybe I'm biased.
Not a sheep stole in Castlebar since 1986.
