Connacht championship 2013

(Oldest Posts First)

Could be our year New York then Sligo/ London probably Sligo and probably mayo in the final.

Time to warm up Conor Beirne for the Sligo game!

Delighted with that draw. Should we get past New York, we'll fancy taking Sligo at home. Have beaten in our last two Connacht Championship games, although they did get one over us in the qualifiers.

First Connacht final appearance in 13 years would be a huge boost.

The draw for the Connacht Championship has put a pep in our step. Herself and myself watched the draw and we were nearly packing our bags already for the trip to the big apple. As you know we have not missed a trip to New York with the team and we had not planned to go in 2013. Well I had not planned.

When the draw was over herslef took out the box from under the bed and her calculator.
When she opened the box there was a fair amount of dollars in it. Then she started,
'you know Eddie the euro v dollar exchange rate is good at the moment. Today the exchange rate is 1 euro = 1.3 dollars. So in simple terms € 1,000 = $ 1,300.In July 1 euro = 1.20 dollars. And wait until I tell you in six months time the euro dollar exchane rate will be 1 dollar = 1.17 dollars. So she said she was buying dolars this week so we can be all set to go'

Well I was stunned . Then she added 'if your gout kicks up and we cant go, then we will convert the dollars back into euro and make a 'tiny 'profit.
Warren Buffet is only trotting after her
She put the dollars and the calculator back in the box.

If I was a betting man I will see you all in New York. Nothing is going to stop this woman.

Up Leitrim

I thought Colm O'Rourke's comments were about Leitrim returning to Ireland with half a team were unnecessary, however the irony of them was none the less as potent, as his own family left Leitrim to pursue a life in Meath. Very Much looking forward to the game tomorrow, Gaels ABU!
