Croker crackers

What a weekend of hurling! The All Ireland hurling quarter finals certainly didn't disappoint this weekend.
Two of the four went as expected - Kilkenny proving too strong for Galway and Cork/ Waterford with nothing between them. I can't wait for the replay next weekend and hope the GAA give them a Saturday in Thurles instead of sharing the Sunday with the first semi-final.
Limerick were on top form to beat the Banner, who have had a very disappointing season overall, but the shock of the round had to be Wexford beating Tipp thanks to a last minute Damien Fitzhenry free. In truth Tipp should have been well beaten by then but Wexford missed a hat full of goal chances in the first half.
Having beaten Cork Tipp were on a high but I think this is a realistic view of where they are, 'one swallow...' and all that.

Paul, I was in Croke Park yesterday for the games - my GAA knowledge and analysis skills aren't the best but I do know that it was an outstanding day of sport, 70, 000 people riveted by what was unfolding on the pitch. A great day!

Yeah, looked amazing. Did you go nuts at the end? I thought we had it.
Are the two boys from Dossing Times quiet today? I noticed this morning that there was no post about hurling from the supporters of the 'Premier'
