JOHNNY McINTOSH: Bucking the trend?


I THOUGHT it was brilliantly refreshing that Offaly won the All-Ireland U-20 Championship. It was a brilliant occasion with some brilliant hurling, and they look like a team that have totally broken the mould. They’re a small, light, athletic team, they’re not full of lads who are all six foot plus. Adam Screeney is the […]


Gaelic Life team of the week


AFTER another weekend of action across all codes, here is our latest Gaelic Life Team of the Week. Armagh and Donegal left it late in the opening rounds of the All-Ireland Ladies Championship. There were wins for Derry and Armagh in the All-Ireland minor quarter-finals. At club level, we had some fine performances across Ulster. […]


Taking it in his stride


By Michael McMullan THE warm smile on Ruairí Ó Mianáin’s face tells you exactly how he plays his hurling. It’s just a part of him. His touch and bag of tricks are one part of the package. It would make any manager in Ireland take note. The hurl is merely an extension of his arm. […]


JOHNNY McINTOSH: The big decision

Derry camogs bounced back from their Ulster final defeat to turn […]


Goal ace Galvin a jack of all trades

We’re only five months into 2024, and already the young Keady man has lined out for five different teams this year. Predominantly, his soccer journey with Dungannon Swifts has […]


Gaelic Life team of the week


AFTER another weekend of action across all codes, here is our latest Gaelic Life Team of the Week. Armagh needed extra-time to see off Donegal in the Ulster ladies final with Down and Fermanagh winning their respective finals. There was a disappointing return in the Sam Maguire Cup but there were three Ulster wins in […]


Bellew: Cavan can only control the controllables


By Shaun Casey IT’S all fine margins at the top of the Lory Meagher Cup table but Cavan will be focusing on controlling the controllables and hope that by the end of proceedings on the final day of the group games, they’ve secured their own fate. Fermanagh are out in front on seven points and […]
