THE ONLY SOUR note from a Waterford perspective after last Sunday’s All-Ireland quarter-final win over Wexford was the 65th minute sending off of Tadhg de Burca. De Burca is a lynchpin of the Deise defence and one of Derek McGrath’s most trusted lieutenants. The All-Star was involved in an off-the-ball tussle with Harry Kehoe where he appeared to interfere with the Wexford man’s faceguard. The incident was spotted by the linesman and de Burca was duly red-carded.
IT WAS UNDOUBTEDLY of the more left-field controversies of the GAA this summer. Video footage emerged of a member of the Clare backroom team throwing a bag of sliotars belonging to Cork goalkeeper Anthony Nash into the crowd prior to this month’s Munster SHC final. The Banner county board issued an apology to Cork two days later, and by the following weekend it emerged that Niall O’Connor – the son of Clare co-manager Gerry O’Connor – was the culprit in question.
EAMONN FITZMAURICE HAS opened up about the circumstances that led to Brendan Kealy’s departure from the Kerry squad earlier this month. The former All-Star announced he was walking away from the county set-up due to a lack of game-time. Kealy had shared his place in the side with fellow stopper Brian Kelly, before the latter cemented the number one spot for the championship. “It was disappointing and I was disappointed for Brendan himself, in particular,” said Fitzmaurice.
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".
