The Hurling finals are on Sky Sports 3, Wexford v Kilkenny.

For those of you who don't know it, it is actually the fastest team sport in the World after ice hockey.

Absolutely mental game and awesome fun.

They always are.

My cousin used to play, not sure if he still does.
When my parents lived in Kildare, we'd go and watch him play whenever we were visiting. Mad game, madder on the pesh afterwards!

Mental stuff. May old man was good back in the 1950's. Didn't quite make the county as Wexford were so good but played to a high standard. He has a lovely scar across his forehead - he played for London in the 1960's - the hurling was played in Eltham
On Sunday's - he used to take me when he played - the day he got the cut head I was crying so much I wasn't allowed to go anymore

TCO, are you from Wexford yourself?

Hon the yellow bellies indeed. Been on the outside looking in for the last number of years but there might well be dancing at the crossroads again if they can get their hands on the Leinster Title, or even better, the All Ireland.

To my shame I have to admit I was born in Wateeford City in Airmount maternity hospital.

My family are New Ross though but Airmount was the nearest to there.

My cousins say that doesn't matter and I am truly a Wexford man even though I left Ireland aged 3 and spent 57 years living in
England, going back almost every year for visits and family occasions.

I am now living back in Ireland, down on the very edge of the island in a place called Ballyfrory between Bannow and Duncormick, about 12 miles west of Wexford town.

I believe it is summer going to occur here this weekend so off to the beach in a few hours - it's 5 minutes in the motor.

Spursy.

Slugged it out toe to toe for the first half apart from the last few minutes.

Had a point scrubbed out by hawkeye early on in the 2nd, missed a penalty then it trickled away from them point after point.

Galway deserved winners.

Today we have Wexford v Waterford in the All-Ireland quarter final from Cork.

After 16 minutes it's Wexford 0-04 to Waterford 0-08

Not for the faint hearted this stuff.

Cheers, it's real big down here in S.Wexford (well everywhere really)

The supporters will be driving back down this evening through Kilkenny with their flags flying and giving it large
on the car horns. Loads of bragging rights. Thinking of my Dad right now, he would have loved this.
