The fight for glory continues!!
2014 is a year of great excitement for our national sport. We are gaining global recognition for our Gaelic games now that the matches can be viewed on Sky TV. This sports is now been recognised for it’s great skill and entertainment throughout the globe. As our sport grows so does our passion and this has been expressed in the quality of skill and determination of all teams involved for this year’s All Ireland Finals.
We can now look forward to a thrilling weekend of semi final action in the GAA All Ireland Senior Championship. On Saturday 30th August the replay of last weekend’s clash between the very strong Kerry and the ever determined Mayo will take place in Limerick. This will be a game not too be missed weather in front of the TV or on the side of the pitch, both teams will be back to full strength with 15 men on the pitch for the Kick off. Mayo fought very hard last weekend to come back and level the score and take a small lead near the end of the game but unfortunately Kerry took advantage of a few tired legs as Mayo played the majority of the game a man down.
In Croke Park we will also be treated to fine display of football on Sunday 31st of August with Dublin taking on Donegal. This semi final can only bring back memories of the 2011 semi final clash of these two teams with Dublin securing a marginal win over Donegal of just 2 points. Dublin will show why they are considered one of the favourites as they continue to play their aggressive attacking game but they will be up against the very strong blanket defensive of Donegal. Two very different styles of Football and a match that should not be missed.
