One of the big talking points of the GAA weekend was that free taken by Cork hurling goalkeeper Anthony Nash in the Munster quarter final and the whack taken by Waterford keeper, Stephen O’Keeffe who rushed out to make what was a brilliant save.

Damian Lawlor, journalist, has just written a book Fields of Fire, the inside story of hurling’s great renaissance. Last year for the first time in history, hurling brought in more revenue than football.. pulling in 12 million euros at the turnstiles ahead of football’s 11.9 million. Even though there are only 9 or 10 counties who play hurling, there have been some extraordinary games over the past few years. The buzz words now are development squads and academies - many of the successful counties now have those in place. According to Damien hurling is in a wonderful place.http://www.rte.ie/radio1/the-john-murray-show/programmes/2014/0520/618483-the-john-murray-show-tuesday-20-may-2014/?clipid=1580258
