Just a week to go to Tokyo. After a year of waiting, the 2020 Summer Olympics will get underway next Saturday.

But the real question you want answered is, what is Mick McCarthy like as a photographer? “Not bad, not bad at all, if we’re ever short a man for Tolka or Tallaght I might give him a shout!” Those are the words of Sportsfile’s Stephen McCarthy. You might be familiar with some of his pictures too. Steph ..read more

Front Row Seat – Pearse Park not Croke Park
Sportsfile Blog

There’s an old posting on adverts.ie for a match programme from 2006. Longford v Dublin, 4th of June 2006. Pearse Park in Longford. It was sold for a fiver.

The description on the ad says ‘Dublin’s last championship match outside Croke Park. Longford refused to concede home advantage and the Dubs travelled down on a bank holiday weekend in glorious sun shine to seal a 2 point win.’ Longford nearly turned the Leinster Senior Football Championship upside-down tha ..read more
