All About GAA!

Posted: 2012-07-06 00:00:00 The Euros are finished and the Rugby season is well and truly over so until the Olympics start at the end of the month my main focus will be on GAA. I’ve always been a massive GAA fan, which is evident in my previous blog posts, and I look forward to the championship every year.

Last weekend was not a great weekend in GAA for me as I watched my adopted county Kildare lose to Meath in the Senior Football Championship. Although many people thought Kildare would be the stronger team it was just not the case on the day and Meath beat Kildare 1-17 to 1-11. Hopefully Kildare will make it in the back door but their chance at the Leinster title is now gone for this year.

Immediately after the Kildare game at Croke Park, Dublin took on Wexford and had much better luck than Kildare. Despite starting strong and ending the first half in the lead, Wexford couldn’t keep up the pace and eventually lost to Dublin by 4 points. Dublin will now take on Meath on the 22nd of July to fight for the title of Leinster champions.

In hurling news, my home county Galway will be taking on Kilkenny this weekend as they fight for the Leinster title on Sunday. The odds are definitely against Galway but if they play on top form on the day you never know they might just beat the Cats. Either way I know who I’ll be routing for on the day!

In other sporting news, the Volvo Ocean Race finale is currently taking place in Galway with plenty happening over the weekend. If you’ve no plans this weekend you should definitely head to Galway, either way make sure to cheer for them on Sunday!

Hope you all have a great weekend.
