In sport and politics, the Northerners are coming!

Interesting southern take on how Kerry’s footballing genius has been eclipsed by Tyrone’s northern (Protestant?) virtues of hard work and discipline. Although on the day, I counted at least two blows to the face landed by frustrated ‘Brazilians’ of Kerry, its the eye gouging of Colm Cooper that features up front analysis of ‘hard’ northern football. Check out last week’s sports call programme before it’s lifted from the site tomorrow evening.
