Congratulations
From all at CLG Tulach an Iarainn to our neighbours Modeligo on a superb win in the Munster Club Junior Championship where they struck early and often for goals to blitz the East Cork challenge. Well done to all and best of luck in the All Ireland Series.

Retirements
The Kilkenny half-back line from the 2008 All Ireland final has now called it a day. One of the abiding memories that day is poor Clinton Hennessy desparately trying to hit his half forward line with puckouts in the first half. Each ball that was sent to the sub-six foot duo of JJ and Tommy was ravenously devoured as they lorded it over their taller opponents and returned it with interest. It taught everybody watching a lot of lessons about hunger, desire and physical gifts and how you use them. The fact that JJ could seamlessly slot back into fullback, a more difficult, demanding and high-risk position, after that season does make the case for him being the greatest of all on that team.
