Thirty two years is a long time.: So it is no wonder that the local press are celebrating Sligo's long awaited victory in last weekend's Connacht final. Their campaign began before the season kicked off by getting players to return to the team, like Kieran Quinn who had taken time out to do a BA in Jazz. The first match was away to New York, and it was the probably the only one in which they were favourites. But they can't celebrate too much, there is still a long way to go in the All-Ireland. However they get on, people in Sligo finally have their third Connacht title.

I'm guessing very few will be interested in this post, but I couldn't resist celebrating. It is always nice when the underdog wins, especially when the underdog is your team :)

No, I'm definitely interested in posts like this. Thanks.

IrelandFilter: Also probably of interest to just Fence and me (and maybe not even Fence), but Ireland won (amateur) golf's European Team Championship last weekend. The championship is always particularly interesting in Walker Cup years as people fight for the few remaining spots on the team. This year's Walker Cup will be held in Ireland for only the second time, at Royal County Down (the previous Walker Cup was in Portmarnock and featured, among others, Phil Mickelson and Paul McGinley).

I'm not a huge golf fan JJ, but I do pay a little attention, plus, we don't win at a lot of stuff so we really pay attention to any and all success :) ” Muircheartaigh has some great lines all right.

I know it's in the links, but it's a good idea to mention which sport you're talking about. From your post, I don't know if it's Gaelic football or hurling. Oh, and congrats Sligo. :-)
