    Well, now. This thread might die a death almost immediately, because I am not sure how many Irish guys post on here (I know there are a fair few on the site overall though) but here we go. A thread to talk a bit about Gaelic sports. :icon_chee

    Galway-Tipperary semi-final in the Hurling tomorrow. If there is anyone else out there haha, how do you see it going? Tipp would have to be the favourites you'd say, everyone has been talking about how inconsistent Galway are, but if they turn up it should be a quality game like. Two teams with good sets of forwards. Tipp have a tighter defence mind, and some people have been saying Galway are a bit shaky at the back, should be interesting in any case. I like Nicky English's article in the Irish Times: - http://www.irishtimes.com/sport/gae...-the-foundation-for-a-tipperary-win-1.2317283

    Any non-Irish here that like football or hurling? I'd be surprised if there were any on Sherdog like, but I know there are some clubs in the US and such.

    You are like me and like a number of different codes, I find coming from Newcastle most people are just tunnel visioned Soccer fans who don't give the time or day for other sports.

    Because you realised what a travesty it was that you hadn't watched either sport before? yes I agree.

    Mon the Saffrons indeed! :icon_chee

    As far the Tipp-Galway game...It was a brilliant game so it was, you should definitely watch it if you can get on youtube (Or maybe you can bypass the geoblock and watch it on RTE player).

    Yeah I like a lot of codes, some more casually than others obviously.

    Kerry vs Tyrone in the football this weekend which should be good, not really sure who I want to win that. Looking forward to the Mayo-Dublin game the week after much more though, hope Mayo can go all the way even if it's unlikely...

    I was reading that Cricket was bigger then Hurling/Shinty in the middle 1800's ? before the GAA came about.
