Win, lose and the National Draw

1 October 2010

WE NEED to begin this column with an apology. Some families were on their way home to Newry, Mayobridge, Warrenpoint, Downpatrick and the like the other Sunday. They were disappointed. Their plucky little team had just been beaten in the All-Ireland Final. But worse was to come.
