Talking Sport: Who's afraid of the big, bad Cats? Updated / Friday, 16 Feb 2018 13:13The Cats are in the spotlightThat famous black and amber jersey of Kilkenny used to strike fear into opposition players as Brian Cody's team built a reputation as almost invincible. Those days are past now, though, as the Cats have slipped back into the pack.
The Davy Fitz era in Wexford really achieved lift-off during last year’s Allianz Hurling League Division 1 semi-final defeat to Tipperary. The charismatic Clare man took over the Yellow Bellies before the start of the season just a fortnight after he departed his native Banner County. Wexford is a hurling mad county and their supporters immediately got on this bandwagon, turning out in big numbers to back their new man Fitzgerald.
Galway have held the upper hand over Mayo in Connacht football over the past two years. But the question remains, are they a better team? On one hand, it’s a simple argument. Galway have met Mayo in the past two Connacht championships and beaten on them both occasions. That makes the Tribesmen the better team, right? Well, it’s not quite as simple as that, of course.
I cannot recommend the Micko documentary on after the news tonight highly enough. Look - Micko, Maurice Fitz, Bomber and Ogie watching a match together in Killarney like it's the most normal thing in the world!
"We're here because, as a group of GAA players, past and present, men and women, we see ourselves as more than GAA players, we see ourselves as people of Ireland."
Delighted to have been able to lend a hand to @GaelicVoices4Ch last night making this video at the GPO. https://t.co/aF9PwL0D0P
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
