On the 4th of June, Meath defeated Antrim in the Christy Ring Cup Final by a point. Antrim were huge favourites going into the game but the Royals seemed to claim a famous victory. However it turned out that the referee and the scoreboard operator had the incorrect score at the end and the game had actually ended in a draw.
After a few days deliberation both teams agreed to a replay of the final on the 25th June in Croke Park. Again, the men from the Glens were favourites to win but the Meathmen pipped them with the last puck of the game in extra-time.
Meath captain James Toher is one of the very few to lift the same cup twice in one year.
It was like Groundhog Day for the Royals...
Pádraic Collins, better known as Podge, is back on the inter-county hurling scene this year having concentrated sole with the county footballers last year. Podge's father is the current football manager and his brother is also on the team.
Podge stood out in the minor and U21 grades for Clare and made his debut for the seniors in 2012.
A year later he played a huge role in securing an All-Ireland for the Banner County after a replay victory over Cork. He was nominated for Hurler of the Year and won his first All Star that year.
He's one of the most exciting players around and covers every blade of grass for Clare.
It's tough being a Wexford GAA follower these days. The U21s gave us something to shout about for the past 3 years but limped out tamely in their first game this year. The senior hurlers were poor against Dublin and the footballers lost out on League promotion from Division 4.
From the highs of the hurlers beating Clare and Waterford in 2014, the footballers competing for Leinsters, to where we are now, down near the bottom of the pack again, it's tough to be a yellow belly!
Learning to make GIFs lately and I thought the boul Davy was ripe for "GIFing" up.
Here, Davy follows the play on the sideline, when suddenly an incident occurs. Davy disagrees with the incident of course and vents his frustration, typically towards the poor referee in charge.
As ever, Davy's blood boils when he doesn't get his way and he blows his top.
Good ol Davy.
It's be a boring place without him!
