14 July 2011

NUAIR a smaoiním faoi na meáin chlóite, cuimhnigí ar an seanabairt Rúiseach ó aimsir an Aontais Soibheidigh a dúirt nach raibh Pravda i dTass, ná Tass i bPravda (nó, nach raibh Firínne sa Nuacht, ná Nuacht san Fhirínne). Le seachtainí anuas tá an fhírinne ag briseadh tríd agus anois is léir go raibh na taicticí uafásacha, ísle, suaracha, eadrócaireacha i bhfeidhm ag an ‘nuachtán’... Free article

Be good or be lucky

14 July 2011

HERE IS an old adage which states that if you can’t be good, be lucky. The Dublin footballers are certainly living proof of that these days.
Probably most referees would not have awarded Bernard Brogan a free in the dying seconds of the Kildare game. And the first goal against Wexford might have been scripted by Harold Lloyd.
