If ever there was an indication that things have changed profoundly in Ireland is it the fact that this match took place at all.
Update: The trophy they played for was the McCarthy Cup, apparently after a founding member of the GAA who went on to become a member of the RUC.
A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
