All Ireland final this Sunday


My correspondent Sir Dan of the Blogosphere has reminded me that the Gaelic Athletic Association All Ireland Football Final takes place on Sunday at 3.30pm. Kerry are playing Dublin in what promises to be a close and hard-fought game.

Sir Dan is a second cousin to the captain of the Kerry team, Colm Cooper. Kerry is historically the most successful team, having won 36 times since 1887. Dublin has won 22 times. No other teams come close, so there is a lot at stake.
