I could certainly ask LISC if I could re-publish them over the summer - they'd certainly keep the site going- but they're fairly topical, and I suspect most people have read them. A common misconception is that this site has anything to do with LISC, it never has (when BrianC was an ed, vehemently so). I'm a member a huge supporter of LISC but this site isn't really part of that.

Re: LISC Player Interviews

... but might there be a possibility of agreeing something for'mutual self-interest'...?

Re: LISC Player Interviews
MattM 14 September, 2018 08:19
I'm not sure exactly what is needed to keep the Craic online (is there a word count minimum etc?) but certainly sharing the interviews in part with a link to the full interview would suit all parties I would suggest.
This site gets content to stay open while the LISC site still gets traffic from people wanting to read on...

Excellent work again Matt.

It was noticeable last week v Notts how much bigger our forwards looked compared to theirs -which wasn't the case generally 2 seasons ago.

Josh also looks like a natural leader and kept going superbly last match for the full 80.

Ha, to be fair to Conor when I spoke to him we didn't know O'Brien was injured, let alone what he got up to at the end of season shindig.
I'm hoping to carry these on in some shape or form and hopefully now most of the lads are a bit more comfortable I can dig a bit deeper going forward. I have no interest in anything too heavy but I'd like to get a little more into what makes them tick individually.
