Stephen Rochford will spend the month of October deciding whether or not he will return for the third year of his term as Mayo senior football manager. The Crossmolina native was appointed as Mayo boss in December 2015 for a three-year term, and for the second time in as many years on Sunday he came within a point of claiming Sam Maguire. Last summer his team lost the final to Dublin by the minimum after a replay, and this time around the same margin was between the teams after 78 minutes.
The optics looked appalling and maintained a rather ignominious start to the expanded Guinness Pro14 and the brave new dawn heralded by the arrival of the two South African franchises. By the end of Leinster’s win over the Southern Kings in the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth it seemed that the cameras had panned onto pretty much everybody among the few hundred scattered around the 48,000 capacity stadium. Anyone who didn’t see themselves on the big screen must have felt left out.
Sam Maguire is away to the Children’s Hospital in Crumlin. Well, the mini van is heating up outside the Gibson hotel. The Garda escort in position. Seamus ‘Shep’ McCormack, Dublin’s media manager among other multi-tasking in this totalitarian regime, has an unenviable few hours ahead. “Here, can you get Dublin tops for Philly and James . . .”Philly McMahon lands into the lobby, decked in full gear, stalling for a photo with a young lad decked in fuller gear. The juggernaut moves slowly today.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
