An anniversary of sorts this morning.
The reigning champions sure did do it the hard way.
Former Cork senior football manager Brian Cuthbert has warned the GAA faces dire consequences if it doesn’t improve the playing experience for its young members.
Brian Cody has called on the GAA to work even harder on behalf of club players whom he claims continue to get a ‘hard time’ from fixture makers.
Former Kilkenny forward Christy Heffernan argues DJ Carey’s imminent appointment to Brian Cody’s management team is a necessary one for the team’s hiccuping attack.
Four things we learned on Saturday
Right, tomorrow in Thurles. Here’s the slightly — but only slightly — likelier scenario.
The 11-time All-Ireland winning manager returns for a 19th campaign at the helm in Kilkenny. A few question remain...
This is Kilkenny. Kilkenny win things. Kilkenny lift heavier weights and hit harder than any other team. Kilkenny are smart. Be like Kilkenny.
On the day before he left for Syria, Eoin Larkin talked about tactics, tours of duty and almost jacking in hurling last May.
Eoin Larkin has had a rougher season than most, though not because of any on-field opponents. A bout of illness earlier this year means he has had to work hard to regain his fitness.
Kilkenny 5-25 Wexford 0-16: Nothing personal, just business. At the final whistle, Kilkenny players reached for the hands of their opponents as if to utter the line from The Godfather.
Should Henry Shefflin per chance not bid farewell to his inter-county career today, the following can be dismissed as the musings of a man who presumed too much.
The best place to begin any appraisal of Tommy Walsh’s career is not with the All-Ireland medals, not with the All Stars but on a Sunday afternoon at Walsh Park in the summer of 1997.
Alan Cadogan will not feature for the Cork senior footballers in 2015, having chosen to focus on hurling next season.
As expected, Brian Cody was last night reappointed for a 17th consecutive season in charge as Kilkenny senior hurling manager.
Six days after he became a dual All-Ireland senior-winning coach/trainer, Cian O’Neill will return to Croke Park this evening to take on the persona of a supporter.

"To me it’s not really about the winning or losing."
A nice little four-marker to get your brain in gear this fine morning. What feat have Galway achieved under Anthony Cunningham in the championship against Kilkenny that no other county have managed on Brian Cody’s watch? We’ll give you a minute.
Brian Cody will take charge of Kilkenny for a 16th season in 2014 but will do so without long-term selector Martin Fogarty.
Kilkenny 2-17 Tipperary 0-20
Kilkenny defender Paul Murphy has revealed how the Cats were anxious to put on a show for absent team manager Brian Cody on Sunday.
Gauging the exact influence Brian Cody has had on this Kilkenny team is a tricky business.
In the end, they just shook hands and exchanged mild salutations.
“I’M back, flying fit, top of me form actually at the moment.”
DIFFERENT day, different grade even, but Kilkenny’s mission this evening will be much the same as it was in Croke Park two weekends ago – add another Leinster title to the stockpile and, at the same time, frustrate Dublin’s growing ambitions.
