Tracey doesn't come off very well in that for me. €25 is steep, I think most people agree on that. Justifying it by mentioning the facilities is ridiculous stuff. Just because we finally have a stadium fit for purpose we need to pay more? For what exactly?... the privilege of not having somebody's knees digging into your spine? Or for having access to overpriced burgers and chips?

"Croke Park issued a directive that €20 has to be the minimum price anyway.

That’s the base starting point for every county and we hadn’t increased our ticket prices in 12 years, which is a pretty long time without an increase. As well, it’s important to point out that tickets were available online for €22 until midnight on Saturday night."


This also appears to be well wide of the mark - https://www.irishexaminer.com/breakingn ... 75996.html


So where is she getting the Croke Park directive thing from so?

No idea. But I'd like if somebody asked her.

Another first round exit for our representatives in Munster. When is the last time one of our teams did any damage in this?

Ballygunner 1-18 Midleton 2-13

Midleton led by 4 points at half time. Not a bad effort, considering they weren't even county champions.

Not a bad effort is right. But that's where our senior club game is at. Kinda happy to push another county's champions

I look at it as a step in the right direction, Tipp-Ex. We're coming from a very low base, but we're improving. Rome wasn't built in a day, and all that.

Hard luck to Midleton. It looked like they might pull it off for a while. I was surprised at people talking about them getting a hammering before the game. I thought they showed in the county final that they have the makings of a good team there, given a bit of time for one or two of them to develop. I’d even go as far as to say that they looked to me to have the makings of a more compete team than the recent Glen team that won a couple of counties and made a bit of progress in the Munster club championship.

The last Cork team to win a Munster title was Newtownshandrum in 2009. They won three titles in seven years. Since then, we've only managed to win a solitary match in the competition, Glen Rovers beating Partrickswell by a point in the 2016 semi before losing to Ballyea in the final.

Outside of that Newtownshandrum side, you have to go back to 1987 for Cork winner, Midleton, the second of their two titles that decade.

We won 10 in-a-row from 71-80, with the first eight going on to win the All Ireland. We've only won five Munster and two All Ireland titles in the forty odd years since, and now officially nothing in the last decade.
