This is a motion that I am sure will infuriate NUI Galway […]

In conversation with The Tipster: Fitzgibbon Predictions, Round 2.

Fitzgibbon cup

I’ve enlisted the help of a parish tipster to call each game. An outright NUIG hurling man, seen often in deep thought by the Clubhouse wall or by the stand in his home parish jotting down notes about training. Mysterious to most, yet knows all about you if you hurl for a 3rd level college. […]

worldcup

A disgruntled groan was the public reaction to the news that FIFA have followed UEFA by extending the number of teams in the finals – from 32 to 48.

Manchester United currently find themselves chasing the breakaway pack. Many of those who inhabit the Stretford End on a regular basis would say that two-and-a-half years of progress should be much more than it has been. However, as all fans of the red side of Manchester know, the intermittent 33 months have been far from […]

Keegan a positive choice as new Galway United boss

Shane Keegan

There may have been some controversy in the manner of his arrival from the now relegated Wexford Youths, but it’s easy to see why Shane Keegan will quickly move past all that as he aims to get his Galway United troops geared up for the 2017 League of Ireland season.
