Red Hands Wallop Metropolitans, All-Ireland Bound?

Received a text from a Tyrone pal of mine this morning, urging me to put whatever cash I had at hand on his beloved county to stuff the pundits and bookies and end Dublin’s march to this year’s All-Ireland. Alas, with floods, family duties and Olympic Boxing to occupy my mind, I never quite made it to the Bookmakers. It’s a pity. Tyrone, against the odds and predictions of most, walloped Dublin in the All-Ireland quarter final today, putting in the best performance by an Ulster side at HQ since their 2005 triumph against Kerry. Next stop, twice Ulster conquerors and Cinderella side of the decade, Wexford.
