SUPER EIGHT RESULTS

SUPER 8 RESULTS


SUPER 8 FOOTBALL

Kerry put the squeeze on Mayo: Horan's tired outfit suffered their worst Championship defeat in 13 years as the Kingdom set searing pace. Colm Keys writes on David Clifford's brilliance on the day and how this young team have made a big statement.
Meanwhile, Donegal started their Super 8s in impressive fashion with their win over Meath and showed that they possess the three key elements required to challenge Dublin according to Dick Clerkin. The win nicely sets us up for their next match versus Kerry that will tell us much about the pecking order of the challengers.
Late Dublin goal rush sees off Rebels: Dublin may feel they have room for improvement, as although the scoreboard would differ, Cork were in the game with over an hour played. In Dermot Crowe's piece, Cork manager Ronan McCarthy praises Dublin for their patience and for not panicking in their Super 8s victory.
In the other Group 2 game, Tyrone saw off Connacht champions Roscommon more comfortably than the four point difference would suggest and Mickey Harte said the victory was all the more important with Dublin being in the group. Next up for Tyrone is Cork while Roscommon face the daunting prospect of a must win match-up against the Dubs.
Cork's ambitions wrecked by defensive problems: Another Croke Park disappointment means the wait for 'Liam' on Leeside now stretches to 14 years, writes Eamonn Sweeney. Despite leading by two points at half-time with the potential to have put more goals on the scoreboard, Cork yet again fizzled out in the closing quarters. Martin Breheny breaks down what went wrong for the Rebels and right for Cody's men.

LOCAL NOTES

HARNETT REUNION:  The second Harnett/Hartnett/ Ó hAirtnéada Reunion was an outstanding success from the first gathering at the  Meet and Greet at the Devon Inn on the Thursday evening to the final farewell following Mass in Duagh on the Sunday.

WELL DONE:  There is a great sense of community spirit in this town and well done to Marie McElligott and her band of painters who transformed the convent wall in a couple of hours the other evening.  Chairman of the town council Maurice O’Connell, fresh from his discovery of Harnett genes, was hard at work alongside Esther, Jim, Nell, Paddy and several others when I passed by.
