What can I read about and listen to on Independent.ie?

It's almost forgotten that Brian Fenton was actually beaten on his Dublin debut from the bench back in 2015, the last time the Rebels beat the Dubs. Frank Roche has looked back at how the Raheny man hasn't looked back from then, while Fenton's former teammate Paul Mannion had admitted he's reaching the point of no return.

Martin Breheny is hoping that the underdogs can take a bite out of the favourites this weekend.

Despite the the impact that Covid had on the last two years' Championships, it still seems unusual to be having quarter-finals this early in the summer and PR consultant Declan Lee explains how the shift may be damaging the GAA's ability to attract sponsors.

Frank Roche and Conor McKeon both examined the danger that provincial winners face with the gap between their last game and the quarters in comparison with the qualifier route and earlier in the week Conor took a look at previous iconic last eight moments.
