1. Huge scoring in qualifiers
While flicking through Twitter on Saturday night, I would have sworn I was following updates from a hurling match. However, it was Galway vs Tipp in the round 4A football Qualifiers. As it was between two very high profile hurling counties, it was an easy mistake to make.

1. Will the Wexford bandwagon roll on to Croker?
The story of the Summer so far has been the exploit of Liam Dunne and his Wexford hurlers as they have travelled through the back door to reach the All-Ireland quarter final. This Sunday in Thurles they take on Limerick, who are still reeling over the chances they wasted against Cork in the Mu [..]
