Going to Croke Park to see football is one of life's pleasures. However, today's League semi-finals saw two very one-sided games which were both over long before the finish. Kerry saw off Roscommon by 3-15 to 0-14, while the Dubs easily beat Donegal by 1-20 to 0-13. Both were 10 point margins on the score board, but the gulf in class was evident for us all to see. On a cold day Kate and I enjoyed seeing Kerry and Dublin utterly dominate. We shared the experience with about 30,000 other fans, but the atmosphere was very subdued due to the one-sided nature of the games. Perhaps the final on 24th April will be more exciting?
