What did Saturday tell us? Maybe that even the most lampooned and put-upon creature eventually locates a temper. The much derided 'ladyboys' devoured a side we had, in our imaginations, put up somewhere with the gods.
The GAA will be deep into summer before it throws up a comparable spectacle of its own. So Saturday stood in pretty stark isolation. A world record crowd, an epochal contest, a billowing sense of history. The men who sowed that acorn 125 years ago would undoubtedly have been proud. And, maybe, a little careworn too. 041b061a72
