Sportsview: Well earned draw for Decies men

16 July 1998

Waterford and Clare both earned their right to a replay of the Munster Hurling Final, played in the usual colour and razzmatazz associated with the event. The Munster Hurling championship in recent years has been thrown wide open with the rise of Waterford and Clare. Their ascent to title challengers along with the Corks and Tipperarys is to be welcomed. Definitely shades of Clare a few years ago can be seen in Waterford and they certainly have the ability to compete and win in Munster and go further in the championship. Free article

One could more accurately describe it as an ability to read between the lines, and this was much needed when viewing BBC1's ``Plague Wars'', which tried to pass off the former South African regime's dirty biological war against its neighbours and enemies as the evil work of one man.

A surreal scene greeted those at Drumcree last Saturday night. Across the barbed wire, water-filled moat and barricades the two sides faced each other. The RUC, in futuristic riot gear, looked down on the baying Orangemen. Each side shone floodlights on the other as fireworks exploded all around. It was an incredible scene.
