Don't cry for Collie in Argentina

THE one-week delay in Dublin's quarter-final may have helped manager Pat Gilroy to get injured players back to full fitness, but it spelled bad news for one former Dubs star.

Collie Moran would usually be in Croke Park as part of RTE radio's live match-analysis team on Saturday, but he had deliberately scheduled his holidays around the original quarter-final dates and has been caught out by the change.

He's away on hols for tomorrow's big game and finding somewhere to watch the big match wasn't straightforward, considering he is in Argentina.

However, thanks to Google, he tracked down a few Irish bars in Buenos Aires before he left and had high hopes of locating a live showing of the game at what will be 3.0pm local time.
