They try hard to get the big breaking news stories to you first and to write informed and insightful articles about them.
As well as that, they try to keep everything that they write as accurate as possible. If you ever see an error in any of their stories, then please don’t hesitate to contact us and they’ll correct it as soon as possible.
Another exciting feature they endeavour to bring you is interviews with the men and women who make the news. They’re always busy knocking on doors, making phone calls, and tweeting to see if the players, managers, and pundits would be willing to lend us their insight into the game, so keep an eye out for their exclusive interviews and guest articles.
The biggest thing for us though is bringing you the info before anyone else. The clue is their name; they want to get the scores and scandal to you as close to ‘live’ as possible.
They’re the only GAA site with a dedicated social media slave, who’ll be facebooking, tweeting, and +1’ing, scores, opinions and breaking news all week long, so if nothing else, be sure to sign up to their feeds and whatever social media site that takes your fancy, and expect to be notified of goals and points almost before they happen.. .
