Walsh point just 'lovely'

"Tommy Walsh's best moment arrived in the 13th minute of the second half. Colin Fennelly dug out possession on the 50 metre line, almost on the right sideline.

"The Tullaroan man charged up on the outside like an express train. Fennelly popped a quick pass. Walsh took the ball in full stride, and galloped away on a Bolt-like sprint before shooting a long range point.

"Lovely hurling, as they say!"

- THE KILKENNY PEOPLE who, quite similar to most Kilkenny people, love Tommy Walsh

"Donegal U-21s hurlers have made it to another final – this time at U-21 level!""

- Even the DONEGAL DAILY seems surprised by the Tir Chonaill men's sharp upturn in small ball fortunes in a week in which the county continued their recent tradition of winning in Croke Park by claiming the Nicky Rackard Cup.

- Warwickshire manager Stan Murray Hession celebrates last Saturday's Lory Meagher Cup win over Longford by having a go at the media, according to London Irish paper, THE IRISH WORLD. Not sure they had much to go on, mind.
