Thought for the day

Exams test your memory, life tests your learning, others test your patience



Congratulations to our all-Ireland medal winner from Lamanaugh. Luke Murphy, son of Jack and Anne and brother of Edel and Seán, who was a member of the victorious Cork minor football squad that defeated Galway in Croke Park on Sunday last.

Wearing number 20, Luke made his entrance early in the second half and justified his inclusion by getting involved from the word 'go' before kicking over the equalising point in normal time.

In extra time the game turned almost completely in Cork's favour before they ran out clear winners at the end.

See Sports pages in this newspaper for full details.
