September Road: If a hurling county was an old cartoon character
And next weekend’s all important War of the the Crisps
KILKENNY MIGHTY MOUSE
Has been through many incarnations, but one this is certain – it’s part-ordinary, part-extraordinary. Has demonstrated some form of super-hypnosis that allows affords the ability to take control of an inanimate object and turn back time.
Do say: “Here I come to save the day!”
Don’t say: “Couldn’t you have thought of something other than a mouse to compare the Cats to?”
AGAINST THE ODDS
Think Cork will beat Kilkenny next weekend and win it out?
2013 SHC: Kilkenny 13/8; Dublin 10/3; Limerick 10/3; Galway 13/2; Clare 9/1; Cork 10/1
MEATH V TYRONE A CRISP AFFAIR
Oh, it’s a big one next weekend. A clash of the titans.
We thought it was a big deal when Carroll’s Ham (Offaly) took on Brady Family Ham (Kildare) in the Leinster football championship in June. Yes, that’s the only reason that match was a big deal.
And just to qualify for yesterday’s Connacht decider, Bewleys Hotels (London) had to overcome both the Bush Hotel (Leitrim) and the Radisson (Sligo)
But next weekend’s clash between Tayto (Meath) v Hunky Dorys (Tyrone)?

The least bad team won on the night. Didn’t think Tyrone played well but Kildare were awful
Owen Mulligan @owen_mulligan
Monaghan adapted the Andy Murray approach, if first u don’t succeed try and try again. Said it all along they’d win ulster !!!!!!! #hunger
Steven McDonnell @Killeavy13
This proves how difficult it is to win 3 in a row in Ulster. Well done Monaghan. Fully deserved result. Enjoy the celebrations.#UlsterFinal
Frankie Boyle @frankieboyle
Well, it’s not turned out too bad. Down a sheep and some turf, but won two lambs on Mayo and a ram on Monaghan scoring 10
MJ Tierney @Mjtierney13
Donegal struggle with teams who rather than counter their system, play the same way. Laois have got joy from the same against them...

Saddens me a great deal to say, after 14 years, yesterday was my last day to chase my dreams in a Kildare jersey. Thanks for the memories!
