Two games of football on a sunny Sunday in Croker - first up it was Kerry vs Clare, followed by Galway vs Tipperary. I have not been to see Tipperary or Clare play football ever. I can't remember being at a match with Galway footballers before (hurlers - yes, in 1980 the last time I was ever at an All-Ireland final). Kerry of course I have seen many times, most recently for their defeat by Dublin in the National League final.
Kerry saw off Clare fairly easily. But the best of the two games saw Tipp score a brilliant win over the favourites Galway. Tipp simply dominated in everything as they out muscled Galway in style.
With me were my bro Brian and his kids Jess and Joe who were in Croker for the first time. They certainly enjoyed the occasion at GAA headquarters. Great family day!
