Exciting times ahead for Contae an Dún!!
What can I say about Sunday’s game other than the last few minutes almost brought on heart failure for half of Croke Park!
Excitement is building ahead of Down’s All-Ireland Final clash with Cork on the 19th of September. Over these past three years a group of supporters from the Short Strand in County Down have travelled near and far in support of the Mournemen – on occasion we have had reasons to be downhearted others to be upbeat and excited, but none moreso than in Croke Park last Sunday!
A Down flag now resides on every lamppost along the Mountpottinger Road, more and more homes are flying the county colours with pride, cars heading in and out of the district are adorned with a miniature Down Flag. It’s a good time to be a supporter and a good time to follow An Dún!
I’m looking forward to the 19th and hopefully a personal return to GAA HQ
I believe we can do it, I believe the skill, the passion, the commitment and determination in is this current senior squad to see Sam brought back to County Down after too long a period away!
Go n-eirí an t-ádh leis na buachaillí ó chontae an Dún!
PS – I hope to get some photos of the flags in the Strand up soon
