For all the myriad of possibilities surrounding this weekend’s All Ireland Semi Final replay between Mayo and Kerry, one undeniable truth is likely to come to the fore. When the margins are this tight, the hungriest team stands the best chance of claiming victory. Hunger at this level of sport is so difficult to quantify or measure effectively, yet last Sunday saw a couple of the most powerful demonstrations that you could wish to see. Fighting back from the brink The raw and emotive hunger which Mayo displayed in the second half as they rallied against Lee Keegan’s red card […]

Kilkenny couldn’t do it, Kerry couldn’t do it, not even Garth Brooks could do it, and now the Stockholm Gaels join the illustrious list of GAA favourites that couldn’t make it five in a row, as they conceded their Nordic Gaelic football crown to Copenhagen in Helsinki on Saturday. Copenhagen wrested back the title that a dominant Stockholm side has won four times since they first started competing in the three-round tournament in 2010. With some new players providing a much-needed infusion of fresh blood, the Danes lost the first final of 2014 to the hosts in Oslo in May […]
“If you can’t take the punches don’t be a boxer.” You know the score; Al Pacino stands in front of his team and talks about inches. It’s the inches in front of your face; it’s about coming together as a team or else crumbling. Mayo and James Horan know will have known all the inches, the yards and the need to come together in yesterday’s match in Croke Park. Let me get this straight, Mayo pulled off the impossible yesterday evening in the All Ireland semi-final by drawing with Kerry. At 4:15 James Horan’s charges were down, they had […]
Bord Gais Energy GAA Hurling All Ireland U21 Championship 2014 Semi Final CLARE 4-28 ANTRIM 1-10 The first of the two u21 Bord Gais Energy GAA Hurling semi-finals seen a fitter, smarter Clare side defeat an inexperienced Saffron team. First blood went to Clare when Colm Galvin took the ball from the Clare puck out brought it towards the middle and hit the ball over the bar and it was evident from then Clare had one thing in their mind. Clare dominated hurling wise; all passes perfectly met the hand, hurl or where it was aimed. A great piece of […]

Bord Gais Energy GAA Hurling All Ireland U21 Championship 2014 Semi Final A repeat of last year’s All-Ireland U21 final takes place this weekend in Semple stadium, the same venue where the final will be held in three weeks time. In last year’s final Clare came out on top with a very comprehensive win over the Saffron’s (2-28 – 0-12). Antrim created an upset in last year’s competition by knocking out Leinster Winners Wexford and will be hoping to create the same upset against Clare this weekend. Antrim has come on leaps and bounds in the last few years hurling […]
The Hurling and football championships have entered the business end of the season. We are now almost down to the final eight in football, while Hurling Championship has been reduced to four. It is an accepted fact that team preparation has never been more professional. Performance Analysis, using video, has become an integral part inter county training regimes for most of the top performers and the gospel is spreading fast, writes Pete Kelly. Earlier this year in a series of articles for http://gaascores.com/ I wrote about how the use of performance analysis technologies and methodologies has become mainstream. Performance Analysis […]
Is there a more high-pressure job in Irish sport than managing the Kerry Senior Football team? Kilkenny Senior Hurling manager or Munster head coach might come close (depending on your allegiances), but the truth is that the expectation of success which accompanies the Kerry position probably leaves it in splendid isolation. A county that boasts 36 All Ireland Senior Football titles have certain expectations of their manager: success. At both provincial and national level, the demand for success accompanies the Kerry Senior Manager’s job like no other in the country. Considering that Eamonn Fitzmaurice walked into the Kerry hot seat […]
