Perennial sleeping giants and serial losing finalists Mayo take on Dublin tomorrow, 3.30pm. Beg, borrow or steal a stream, marvel at the brawn and desire of the amateurs on the park, ask yr friendly GAA posters what the hell it takes for a foul to be called, why hands are allowed and how knowing when to take yr point is a key cornerstone of malevolent irish rural psyche.

Enjoy the match. Boo the Dubs. Mayo, god help us.

Is this the one with sticks or without?

the one with sticks is called curling & they're allowed to kill each other under duress

Without

The fields in both counties are too small for hurling to ever have been developed as they art form it is in the dairy counties, is my theory.

But the ditches of boggy mayo, rocky kerry, the yards between the towers of ballymun, the border gaps of armagh, these are the spaces that light struggles into, that murder and dark deeds are swallowed whole by, that breed yr modern hack-of-all-trades gaa footballer

My interest in GAA has waned since Limerick crapped out against Clare tbh. Who is this player for Mayo that everyone's raving about?

Old Boy In Network (Michael B), Saturday, 21 September 2013 16:09 (seven years ago) link

Just webmailed you about this DMac.

My heart and family loyalties say Mayo, my head says Dublin.

Anyone going? Tickets like hens teeth.

Does this mean that I can post about the rugby on here without getting laughed out of town? cz no one even mentioned the Lions tour while it was happening so far as i could make out, total travesty

You can start a thread i guess but iirc there were ile threads tbf

Tickets arent a fuckin hope. Brother got 1 through contacts, they're trickling down but the system of allocating them out through clubs and organisations around the country means its not a market as such, its a game of who you know. He's not mad into it but feels it'd be bad form to sell.

I'll be watchin at home then joinin achill cru up around croker when we win.

looked about ile for threads at the time, couldn't find any, assumed after a cursory glance through some older threads on the topic that rfu was just the sort of bourgie noncery that the stern stock of ilx had no truck with

It is today

The mayo player everyone is raving about is the redeveloped aidan o'shea, always a fielder of note but physically reconditioned over the summer to a cross between longcat and a sherman tank. His fetching of the high ball above a forest of thuggery is rivalled as a sight this year only by his can't-fail method of seeking out opposition defenders to run over on his maraudings.

O'Connor starts tomorrow with a dislocated shoulder not fully healed. Seven minutes max.

I think we had a Lions thread. I know Six Nations has a couple of threads on ILE.

hyggeligt, Sunday, 22 September 2013 05:32 (seven years ago) link

I can only see a 'Young Lions' thread

Don't care for rugger myself but imo ILF should offer a home to all your poor neglected sports, your huddled bantzes

INTENSE START

mayo 0-1

stick yr hawkeye up yer arse, bet its a dub working it

a fox barks, btw. just barks. (darraghmac), Sunday, 22 September 2013 14:34 (seven years ago) link

cheap ball out of hand from cafferkey gives it back to dubs easy kicking distance out 0-1 to 0-1

a fox barks, btw. just barks. (darraghmac), Sunday, 22 September 2013 14:35 (seven years ago) link

mayo intensity giving them opportunites, which they are missing. must be a final

0-3 to 0-1 but letting them away with it not to already be five up

a fox barks, btw. just barks. (darraghmac), Sunday, 22 September 2013 14:40 (seven years ago) link

one on one the mayo halfline have them scared, three points in it

shitty goal conceded from allardycesque punt all level

a fox barks, btw. just barks. (darraghmac), Sunday, 22 September 2013 14:47 (seven years ago) link

dub on the back foot but comfortable there while mayo struggle to turn it into points, one in it to the eventual winners

dublin much more penetrating when they get it in attack, but holding it in reserve yet

another great save hennelly, mayo look paperthin at the back

A lot of sloppy play from both teams

(xpost) Perhaps. It's a tough one to call. Will look like Cork supporters have swamped stadium by end with amount of red in crowd from sunburn.

Dublin out of jail in an incredible way to be only a point down. Awful mistake by the Mayo keeper.

Very poor game so far, which is a shame.

That was a great All Ireland final. Kerry blew their chance. If they almost lost to a 14 man Dublin team, I wouldn't rate their chances in the replay.

Its like the dubs have agreed to spar with us, everyone knows they will get a goal on demand

Mayo backline is weak, and not just vs dub forwards, sleepy stuff
