Rumours have been flying around the past few weeks in the west that were Daly to call an end to his successful six-year reign with the capital county, th [..]
Down football has been given a massive shot in the arm with the news that Marty Clarke is to return home from Australia.
Clarke is due to wed his fiancée in October in Ireland, and it looks as if he will now move back to play with Down in 2015. Clarke had been playing with the AFL club Collingwood since 2012, after enjoying a previous spell w [..]
Kevin McStay is always honest and forthright in his opinions, and on the Sunday Game last night he didn’t duck responding to the speculation linking him with the highest profile managerial position currently available in Gaelic football.
When prompted by Des Cahill, McStay didn’t deny his interest in replacing James Horan as Mayo manager. Ho [..]
It’s been quite a couple of weeks for Donegal centre-back Karl Lacey.
His son Noah was born recently, and Lacey last night tweeted a picture of the little man kitted out in full Donegal gear.
Noah’s dad played an important role in one of the best displays of Gaelic football given by any team in Croke Park yesterday. Lacey and his defensive [..]

Kerry 3-16 vs Mayo 3-13 (AET), All-Ireland Senior Football Championship Semi-Final Replay, Gaelic Grounds Limerick, August 30th 5pm.
For Clare-Cork in the hurling last year, read Kerry-Mayo as the footballing version this year.
It was another superb game of football and extra time was needed to separate these two gallant teams after the orig [..]
James Horan has left his post as Mayo manager following their agonising loss to Kerry in the replayed All-Ireland semi-final this evening.
The three-point defeat after extra time will now be the last time Horan leads his native county into battle. He has done a fantastic job in his four years in charge, dominating Connacht by winning the Nesto [..]
Jim Gavin has decided to stick with the same 15 that stormed Monaghan’s blanket defence to take on Donegal tomorrow.
That means Jonny Cooper is retained in the centre-back position he manned so well in the 17-point quarter-final win over the Farney men. There is no room for U21 stars Jack McCaffrey, Paul Mannion or Cormac Costello in Gavin’s [..]
Peter Coonan will be back on our screens for soon as loveable rogue ‘Fran’ in Love/Hate, but in the meantime he has been lending his uniquely husky voice to other pursuits.
Coonan’s voiceover to the video produced by the Strawberry Alarm Clock on FM 104 will have the hairs on the back of every Dublin supporter standing in unison ahead of tomorr [..]

With all the controversy about the All-Ireland semi-final having to move to accommodate the ‘Croke Park Classic 2014′, there probably hasn’t been enough of an effort made to actually explain what is taking place at GAA HQ on Saturday.

This championship has been regarded as quite open, even though the four teams everybody expected to get to the semi-finals got there.

Both Eamonn Fitzmaurice and James Horan have kept faith with the same teams that started last weekend’s drawn All-Ireland semi-final.
Fitzmaurice and his backroom team haven’t made room for a place for Kieran Donaghy, despite the telling impact the big man made late in the drawn fixture. Despite an injury worry to Stephen O’Brien, the Kenmare cl [..]

Mayo fans have been given plenty of fodder to complain out about this week having to travel to Limerick for the replay with Kerry, but the GAA’s Central Hearing Committee supplied them with some positive news by rescinding Lee Keegan’s red card last night.
The Mayo management team had delayed announcing their starting team until the outcome [..]
Armagh’s Championship run ended in agonising defeat to Donegal a couple of weeks ago, but for Kyle Carragher and many of his teammates, the summer of 2014 was a campaign to be remembered positively.
With Kieran McGeeney announced as Armagh manager for the next five years, things are looking ripe in the Orchard county. Crossmaglen man Carragher [..]
Ever think to yourself what Stephen Cluxton says when a ball goes over the bar, or what underhand tactics a defender uses to try and stop Seamus Callanan?
Well if GAA umpires were to have a camera headpiece attached to their head like their cousins in the AFL now have, it would provide those watching our national games with a unique view on what [..]
