    Aye, a good victory, well done Ireland!

    The last game at Croker was deplorable, twas more like a kick boxing marathon!

    Huzzah and congratulations to Cork’s Graham Canty for an exemplary performnce of harrying, chasing and tackling. Tyrone can be well proud of their captain as well who led by example

    I wonder if the Australians will have to revert to “open slather” to win next year!
