Fair play to UCC, they dogged it out in the 2nd half after a woeful first. Went direct in the second. Kingston Fitzgibbon and Downey came to the fore along with the lad at the back from Limerick. Sending off of O'Leary actually wound them up and they won it from there. Conway hit some great long range frees as well.

Happened to hear Des Cahill's interview with prospective GAA President Larry McCarthy on RTE radio yesterday and have to say he sounded impressive.
Barrs/Bishopstown native and a lecturer on all things sport in the USA now, but deeply involved in the GAA over there.
Appears to be totally in command of this brief if we are to take the book by the cover.
I cannot find the bettting odds on this momentous event but I suspect McCarthy will not beat Jarlath Burns of Armagh?
We didn't hear the " cúpla fochall" anywhere in the interview and I blame Cahill for that, but Burns is a "gaelgóir " even if it sounds
like Swahili in his nordie dialect.
McCarthy's father was a Kerryman who took him to Croke Park at a young age to watch.............you guessed it............not Cork.
Boyhood hero, Mick O Connell.
He didn't say anything about Clifford's RED card against Tyrone........... :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

Kieran Donaghy wants the GAA to shut down supporters' forums. I'm not sure how he thinks the GAA can shut down privately-owned websites.

https://www.irishexaminer.com/breakingnews/sport/gaa/donaghy-calls-on-gaa-to-tackle-keyboard-warriors-982577.html

A flavour of his rant -

“If the GAA was to do one thing, I’d shut down everyone one of those forums. They are such a negative forum, a lot of poison inside in them and people giving out. And there is literally no need for it because 90% of the people don’t have a clue what they are talking about anyway but it gives them a massive voice to talk about people, getting personal with people. I’d shut down all the forums. I’d shut them down.”

This from the man who indulged in sledging his opponents for years. I would say 90 percent of Donaghy's brain cells are not functioning. I must away now to the Kerry Website to see what they make of it.
