KEVIN CASSIDY: Plenty up for grabs

THE National League continues this week with an important round of fixtures before we head into Super Saturday next weekend. Casting my mind back to my own playing days, St Patrick’s weekend and Easter weekend were two of the toughest for me in terms of sacrifice. I am not sure what it was about it, but […]

KEVIN CASSIDY: Long live the club

IT wasn’t to be for our young guns in Gaoth Dobhair as they went down to a well-oiled Glenties machine in last Sunday’s Donegal county final. Going into the game, we knew Naomh Conaill were hot favourites but we thought we might be able to make a contest out of it. Although Sunday’s result was […]

Kevin Cassidy: The day is here

ALL the pretenders to the throne have fallen. All of those teams who thought that this was their year have fallen in their quest. We are now we are left with the best two teams in the country and what a spectacle it should be. At the start of the year Kerry would definitely be […]

KEVIN CASSIDY: We have lift off!

Personally, I think the championship […]

KEVIN CASSIDY: A rethink on underage ruling is badly needed

I’VE purposely left this sit for a week to see what sort of reaction would occur from the decision to ban competitive action at under age levels. I’ve gone on record here before stating that sometimes the GAA amazes me – in particular, how they come about some of the decisions that they take and […]

KEVIN CASSIDY: A free shot for Donegal

AFTER last weekend’s games, I’m still a little disappointed with the intensity levels that we are seeing in this year’s All-Ireland series. There is nothing we can do about that now, so we have to simply let it play itself out. I mentioned last week that I think for next season there will have to […]
