Remembering Tim

Thursday 31st August, 2017



Remembering TimIt is hard to believe that it is a year since we lost our brother, Tim Ross.One year on it still makes no sense and that pervading numbness and overwhelming sadness that engulfed us all that fateful Thursday and in the following dreadful days has scarcely dissipated.We stood in sombre silent tribute with his school-mates and those who played...

Galway Cup Reflection

Sunday 13th August, 2017


2017 GALWAY CUP – REFLECTIONSAnd so the Galway Cup comes to an end.We had high hopes of doing really well which were not fully realised. Those were legitimate high hopes.Yes there were mitigating reasons. We were missing a few. We lost Odhran to injury in the first half of the first game.But really we did not play well enough against Waterford and did not...

2017 GALWAY CUP – DAY 3FRIDAY 11TH AUGUST 2017Just as sure as a one legged duck swims in a circle you are also guaranteed to get absolutely soaked on at least one day at the Galway Cup.It is a tradition. It may also be in the Rules.It rained overnight and it is still raining and very wet this morning. We don’t play until 2.25pm so hopefully it will have...

2017 GALWAY CUP – DAY 2THURSDAY 10TH AUGUST 2017We will start with a prayer.Dear Lord . . . .So far today I am doing all right. I have not lost my temper, not even been grumpy, nasty, selfish, smug, patronising or self indulgent.I have not whined, given out, passed a smart remark, poked fun at some unsuspecting and undeserving soul, not even tried to be...

2017 GALWAY CUP – DAY 1WEDNESDAY 9TH AUGUST 2017Good morning!And what a glorious morning it is on this the first day of the 2017 Galway Cup.

We have prepared well...

Prologue

Tuesday 08th August, 2017


THE GALWAY CUP 2017It has been a long sporting summer since the end of the Kennedy Cup in the middle of June.Short a World Cup Finals, a European Championships or even an Olympics we have had to find sporting solace elsewhere.Sadly the Continental Cup or the Inter Continental or could not give a Continental Cup (or whatever it was called) did not cut it for me. It...

Kennedy Cup Day 6

Wednesday 21st June, 2017


DAY 6 – FRIDAY 16TH JUNE 2017Sadly no game for us today and after the night before fellas were slow to surface (and from some unusual places).We were given the option of heading up to watch some of the other games but nobody took that up preferring to lie on and take it easy.We also had some work to do in tidying up and cleaning up after ourselves. We did our...

Kennedy Cup Day 5

Wednesday 21st June, 2017


DAY 5 – THURSDAY 15TH JUNE 2017Despite every good intention and our best efforts it is a little hard, after yesterday, to fully motivate ourselves.We play the Plate semi-final to get into the Plate Final which is also a play-off for 5th and 6th place. That should be some motivation and it is.But having played the biggest League in the country, the DDSL,...

Wednesday 14th June, 2017


DAY 4 – WEDNESDAY 14TH JUNE 2017This is a big day.But it is a long time to 5.00pm. So a late morning was allowed. House 77 were the last to rise but then again they were probably the last in bed!Most busied themselves with visits to Seamus or lazed around (we are exceptionally good at that) or played on the X-Box or Darts. Speaking of Darts Sky Sports News is...
