Meh! Kildare were competitive enough. Accuracy was not where it needs be but with Division 1 football next season Feeley, Doyle and Cribben to return I am optimistic that we can close the gap as Dublin will transition for a year or two before kicking on. The mad Flynn brothers were class, Dan best player on the pitch and Luke marked Fenton out of the game. A decent year. Everyone was expecting a trimming so confidence maintained. Only 2 goals conceded all year.
As a Dub, it was good to see Kildare make an attempt today. A county of Kildare's size, genuine support and heritage should be closer to the top table than they have been over the past 10 years. Perhaps like Pat Gilroy in 2010, Jack O' Connor has made Kildare tough to beat first and perhaps there might be a way to utilise the talents of Daniel Flynn etc next.
There was a complete lack of goal threat from Dublin today. Rediscovering that is the real key to winning the All Ireland.

Limerick in the hurling don’t chase goals, goals come along but scoring over 30 unstoppable points will win the game in most cases.

 Dublin seemed happy enough to get a cluster of points, dominate possession and win the game.

Dublins game will change obviously if they go behind and they’ll punch holes in most teams and create goal chances.

Disappointing Sunday alright. But that final round of golf was outstanding and McIlroy for all the criticism he gets gave it everything. The bogey on 15 was a killer, if he didn’t drop there, that last shot which went so close on 18 would have been for -17. He left some putts behind, he’ll regret. But could the OCI not have made him a custom hat - in that heat he was burnt to a cinder by the end. Walker too was very unfortunate. I thought it was a bad decision. He had won the 2nd round well but two judges gave it to the American, who had fought professional, looked the part, but was gassed after the first round, and dragged Walker into a messy final round with little boxing. Rhys most unfortunate - but will be back. But these at least are all sports (Golf, Boxing, Gymnastics, and of course Rowing) where we are competing at the  top. But at what point will someone in RTE and Irish media be honest and admit we are now mostly shite at athletics and so off the pace.

With the uk lottery finding a hell of a lot of the main ‘winning’ sports at the Olympics for GB, how much does the National lottery provide Irish sports?

Some air time in the high jump
You kind of forget how high those guys are jumping. My young ones said it didn't look that high until zi got a tape measure out and showed them that the height was pretty much ceiling height in the room!

Those lads would be nearly ceiling height also in fairness

Huge progress for Offaly considering how far they’ve dropped to, it’ll make the Joe McDonagh cup interesting, with lots of teams fancying their chances.

When the keeper comes out no one picks them up and can be used well, in sevens the keeper general turns out to be the best player, watching the keepers coming out it reminds me of the sevens tournaments

That was just awful luck for Rhys, scores 15.26 in qualifying which would have given him a medal…

Max though was outstanding

The clots are not a substantial problem since they now know what to look out for. But the herd immunity thing illustrates that if you not have a vaccine then are likely to get Covid, if out and about at all, so you would be exposed to the higher risk from the real Covid

An anti vaccine person that I know caught Covid recently, he’s been in bed for the last 3 weeks, can’t wait to see him and see if he’s changed his mind

Do you think Croke park is a viable location?
How many times a year is Clones used?
Do you not think the second city needs to be ‘upgraded’?

Refereeing a Gaelic football match has got so difficult and the fact that both sides can have grievances about some very marginal decisions only reinforces the point. I thought Gough done ok on balance but may have got a few decisions wrong but no one side clearly benefitted from this. At least he is a referee that will allow some degree of physical contact. L

I watched the game on BBC where the commentators kept going on about him blowing up the match 20 seconds early yet from what I recall on the screen timer he actually played more than the 3 minutes of allocated injury time.

Yeah I wondered that point on the timing. Was over 3 minutes
I think the stadium clock showed less than 3 minutes played. Was def over the 3 on the TV clock tho

There were 20 seconds left on the stadium clock.

The only clock that’s worth anything is the referee’s clock, forget about the clock on site

Ref gave Monaghan a lot in the second half. Can't remember who it was for Tyrone but they were fouled near the end on the sideline closest to the screen, yet ended up being penalised for what they did after. Add in Beggan pulling the jersey, to that last passage of play when the ball came off the post and it was coming down into a Tyrone defenders arms yet he got a blatant push in the back before Monaghan got the ball and the free. Even blowing up Tyrone for lifting off the ground too.

Not one pundit or player on the pitch complained about that tackle from the keeper, was the best thing about the game in fairness

Jersey pull by Beggan
Yip clear as day. Credit to him for tracking back but lucky to get away with it

It wasn’t clear at the time nor in slow mo.
