Weekend comes early….

Slow blogging today I’m afraid. I’m off to Belfast in twenty minutes. Good luck to Tyrone and the Down Minors on Sunday. Happily I’ll get to see them on TV this time out rather than listening to crackling LW signals at the top of a nearby hill. I’ll blog as and when I get the opportunity over the weekend.

Donate to keep Slugger lit!

For over 20 years, Slugger has been an independent place for debate and new ideas. We have published over 40,000 posts and over one and a half million comments on the site. Each month we have over 70,000 readers. All this we have accomplished with only volunteers we have never had any paid staff.

Slugger does not receive any funding, and we respect our readers, so we will never run intrusive ads or sponsored posts. Instead, we are reader-supported. Help us keep Slugger independent by becoming a friend of Slugger.

While we run a tight ship and no one gets paid to write, we need money to help us cover our costs.

If you like what we do, we are asking you to consider giving a monthly donation of any amount, or you can give a one-off donation. Any amount is appreciated.

  1. Hopefully Tyrone will bring Sam back to Ulster. Just to silence Pat Spillane makes it well worth cheering on Micky Harte’s boys! I think starting with Canavan is a mistake though. Also Collie Holmes should have been in the starting line-up as Kerry are stronger in the middle of the park. My main worry though is The Gooch. He is the best forward in the country and is virtually unplayable when he’s on form.

  2. Kerry will do the two in a row. Tyrone are all huff & puff but no real class apart from a few players who have been inconsistent/ordinary this year. The 3-week lay-off has stalled their swashbuckling momentum, Mulligan is a stone overweight, Canavan is being held together by sellotape & their blanket defense & swarm tactics won’t save them this time round.

    May the Kingdom reign.

  3. A very enthusiastic press release from the UUP Trevor Ringland who urges that “everyone should rally behind Tyrone and show solidarity with our fellow Ulstermen. The red hand of Ulster is Tyrone’s symbol and should be a symbol of pride capable of uniting Ulster people of all traditions. Stand up for the Ulstermen and stand up for Tyrone. Whatever the result we should all be proud of our Province’s sporting men and women.”
