Emyvale V Killanny in Tully on Sunday June 23rd. What a frustrating day Sunday has been as I attended the Emyvale V Killanny game in Tully and discovered that I do not know the rules of Gaelic Football any more as all these new rules and changes to old rules have me totally confused. It was also frustrating watching a team, with all the ability needed to win the game but instead they handed it on a plate to the opposition. OK Killanny is higher in the League Tables but Emyvale could have improved their position by using their talents more productively. A few players held on to the ball too long and ran themselves into a cul-de-sac. Others gave terrible passes. Others were calling for the pass but were ignored. Some just used the wrong option when a better one was available. Some just did not get in to the game. However those who did gave it all they had and were hungry for possession. Again today some indiscipline caused a couple of extra scores that should not have been given away. The other ‘downer’ was the fact that the team was not at full strength due to county commitments, or so I was told. This gave other players a chance to show their worth and perhaps earn their place on the team next day. The final score was 1 - 10 to 0 - 9 in Killanny’s favour. Cavan and Meath are likely thinking about ‘what might have been’ too and they were on a bigger stage with more at stake.
