The Sign of a Great Team

September 13, 2011


                        It was a different Sunday to the previous week. Shifting from a crowd of 82,000 to just less than 15,000, Camogie All Ireland Final is an altogether different beast to its male counterpart. A largely family tuned day, the sounds of children filled […]

The Summer Is Finally Here

June 13, 2011


Yes, yes, I know that it’s been raining on and off for the last week. And yes, I know that technically the summer started on the 1st of May and woe-betide anyone who tries to rearrange the calendar to suit their own whims but if I’m to go by my own internal clock then the […]

Wexford Women Show The Way

November 13, 2010


This post is very out of date but it’s something I came across on the computer and decided to throw up here. It might awaken some good memories for anyone in Croke Park this year. . . Trips to Croke Park have been scarce for Wexford fans of late; in fact, this year’s Dublin football […]

Hurling Standard Sinks So Low We’ve Taken To Belittling Each Other

October 12, 2010


. If there was ever a sign that Wexford hurling was in serious trouble, it came in the form of Sunday’s County Final between bitter rivals Oulart-the-Ballagh and St Martins. Oulart ran out convincing winners but the standard, particularly in the first half was absolutely dreadful. The second half did not improve much but Oulart’s […]

Where Are The So-Called Professionals?

April 22, 2010


The GAA has long been recognised as “an amateur organisation run by professionals” but this status is in sore and dire danger following the powers that be’s decisions regarding this year’s league hurling finals. . Picture, if you will, Thurles. Grand oul’ spot, to be fair. But now think about the four teams involved in […]

On The Fitzy: A Dedication to Wexford’s Finest Shot Stopper

February 15, 2010


. Today marks the end of a sporting era. Not only is the game of hurling losing a man, who I believe to be the finest goalkeeper in the country (and perhaps one of the best ever), but we, in Wexford are also saying goodbye to the last remaining member of the 1996 All Ireland […]

When A Jersey Is More Than Just A Jersey

February 4, 2010


. So I’m writing a one act play at the moment and there is a point in it where a jersey is very instrumental to the characters. And it got me thinking about jerseys in general and the purpose of them, and why we spend obscene amounts of money on, maybe a new one every […]

Just for a change… Double Negatives

January 28, 2010


So I’m scurrying around the house trying to do work for Totally Dublin at the moment and was also thinking about how I haven’t blogged for a few days. So, rather than post another review (of Rock and Chips) straight away, I decided I@d put up something a little bit different. . This is a […]

On The Road – Part 2

January 22, 2010


So, in the space of time since I blogged about the state of the roads in Wexford, my own road has been filled. . Possibly twice, who knows? . What I however, WOULD like to know is what they are filling the potholes with – skittles? . No sooner are the filled when they’re opened […]

On The Road? – Not if I can help it…

January 14, 2010


There are potholes on my road that I could build a house in. Of course, I’d never get planning though… . In light of our ‘Big Freeze’ and subsequent ‘Rain-out flood risk’, the roads in Ireland have gone to sh*t. I’m worried particularly about the stretch of the Duncannon Line between Kate’s Farmshop and The […]
