All Ireland final pushed back to the last week in July and the League finals will be played this next year.  HQ didn't get their way yet but will try again next year.

So stupid, they could not put it back three weeks to mid August.
I have spoken to a lot of genuine GAA folk and to a person they have all said it was dumb having the all-irelands in July. Most agreed that late September was not on, most settled on mid August as a compromise, except the powers to be in Croke Park.
As of July 2 2023, there will be four county teams left in the 2023 championship. This will result in a huge amount of younger county players going abroad to places like Chicago Boston, NY etc, from June onwards .Who can blame them they will have put six or seven months of hard slogging and little or no out or socializing. In addition, most county championships will not begin until mid to late August.
The PR departments of soccer and rugger organizations must be delighted with the as are probably RTE.
I personally haven't watch as much premier league soccer in August for about twenty years.

The weather has certainly helped to be fair (better weather in August  ;) )

Was at our intermediate hurling group game and all the seats were taken, fair wee crowd at it for Friday night hurling (Eire90 and his ten aliases will be wetting his pantsat that info)


Fixed that for you

Good luck to Kevin McStay. Very happy he got it.
He is a Mayoman at heart, he got totally shafted six or seven years ago.
Onward and upward, I have a lot of respect for Donie Buckley, hopefully Stephen Rochford has something to add as coach.

Since 1985:

Mayo in All Ireland senior and minor finals -

Played 19.

Won 1
Lost 18

What's up?

Best team won today. Bottom line.
A tad crazy that that Galway lost three times in Connacht this year, but deservingly winners today

65k the expected attendance for Saturdays double header. If it was a stand alone game would probably be looking at 35 to 40k?

how many will go  home after tailteaan cup

To Kerry ?
When does your cuil camp start

Derry very athletic
Not that it needs to be said again, but SKY coverage and analysis miles better than RTE

Fair play to Westmeath hopefully they hammer the biffos. Maughan  & that ridiculous chant are enough to put me off my soup.

Lets hope the GAA appoint referees that allow teams to play.
The contrast two weeks ago was crazy
Galway V Kilkenny, free ridden pathetic spectacle
Limerick V Clare one of best games in a decade.
btw kudos to all four teams today for providing four hours os great entertainment.

So who avoids who, Only Galway have played Mayo, Kerry v Cork previous

If that was one of the criteria, then how were Armagh able to be drawn against Donegal, just like Mayo played and lost to Galway, but according to Joanne Cantwell Mayo cannot meet Galway again.
it really feels like they are making it up as they go along, or maybe Joanne Cantwell was incorrect with her information.

Who’s that panelist on RTE with O’Rourke and Cavanagh?  A complete one trick pony. Hopeless

She's hard to listen to, RTE must have a gender quota in play .  Wouldn't be a fan of the two bucks alongside either.

They have such terrible punditry

Was thinking the same thing myself. Additionaly Sean Cavanagh comes across a bit smug for my liking.
