    I dropped them about two months after virgin took over , price increased, extra payment sneaked in, had to involve comreg to leave.

    I've saorview , Netflix, freesat, built in Android TV. It's plenty for me.

    It's streaming and casting service has been flawless too. Far better than RTE player.

    TG4 still get first choice of matches. Mostly Saturday matches eir have but they may also have matches at same time as TG4. Their coverage is great with interviews with some of the club players in days leading up to the matches and analysts are very knowledgeable. Found myself watching all 3 matches today rather than premiership which had poor boring matches.

    Naas lose to Ardclough in the Kildare SHC. 2nd year in a row they've lost and they were raging hot favourites today. Very impressive from Ardclough who do it with a somewhat ageing team.

    Kiltale narrowly beat Kildalkey in the Meath SHC final yesterday. 1-15 to 1-14. They were in deep trouble at half time when they were 4 down. But they came good in the second half and a Peter Durnin winner in injury time was enough to win their 4th title in a row.

    Roscommon SFC semi final results;

    St Brigid's 2-6 Western Gaels 0-10

    Roscommon Gaels 0-16 Boyle 0-10

    Wasn't at the games myself but from what I've heard, St Brigid's were living on their nerves and, as has been their trademark throughout the championship so far, just did enough without setting the world alight. A hugely disappointing end to Western Gaels' championship.

    Boyle, despite having the advantage of a stiff breeze in the first half, went in level with Ros Gaels at half time, from there on it was going to be extremely tough for them, and so it proved, Gaels racking up a good score of 16 points in difficult conditions.

    Final takes place on October 22nd.

    Fuerty take on Michael Glavey's in the Intermediate final in 2 weeks.

    Kerry Senior Championship Semi Finals this Saturday:

    Kerins O Rahillys v South Kerry
    Very hard game to call- KOR are really good going forward but a bit suspect at the back while SK are relatively strong all over but wouldnt have as much firepower as KOR. If Sheehan is fit then it might tip the balance in SK's favour.


    Dr. Crokes v West Kerry
    If WK can keep it tight in the early stages then they could run Crokes very close- I'd imagine Crokes will try break their spirit early. West Kerry are backboned by AN Gaeltacht- who are in the intermediate final and they also have a couple of other very good club players.


    Should be 2 very good games:

    Agree with how you're reading this one, I think the pace of the WK forwards could expose the frailties of the Crokes defence. Haven't been in anyway impressed with Crokes their last 3 outings.

    Alan Fitz for West Kerry is a really top forward at this level so I can see him causing problems for Crokes

    What do you think on the first game?

    Starlights are the only team through to the Wexford senior football final so far (their first since 2007), after defeating my club Castletown by 2-12 to 1-12 in the semi-final on Sunday. After having three days to absorb the result, ultimately their game-plan was a lot more fluid and concise than Castletown's, and they were deserving winners by that factor alone.

    Castletown had about five wides early on when generally on top, and should have been more than 0-5 to 0-1 in front heading for half-time. Starlights had compiled eight wides by that juncture (some of them among the worst you're likely to see), but built a bit of head of steam with the last two points of the half to go in only 0-5 to 0-3 behind. Castletown seemed happy to play down the clock and stick to short kickouts, which I cannot fathom as all their most productive passages came when they ran directly at the cover. Starlights' could have a goal when one such short-kickout was turned-over, but they eventually did net not long after to turn the game on it's head.

    In fairness to Castletown, they battled back to draw level with a goal of their own in the final quarter, and twice restored parity once more when falling two points behind, but Aaron Dobbs' brilliantly taken goal right near the end was worthy to win a match at any level.

    While I cannot have any complaints about losing to the better team, I felt we shot ourselves in the foot somewhat with some of our tactics- for example, we were getting cleaned-out in midfield, and yet kept our best midfielder shoe-horned in at full-back minding a fella pushing 40.

    The other match between St.Martin's and Shelmaliers finished a draw, with the replay fixed for the weekend after next. Now I didn't stay for that one (wasn't able to stomach any more football :D) but by all accounts St.Martin's were rattled for long segments of the contest, yet at the same time pulled it out of the fire with the last three scores of the game. If anything though, the advantage should lie with Shels in the replay as St.Martin's have a senior hurling semi-final this Sunday, whereas Shelmaliers have the weekend off. Being out every weekend since August is bound to have a detrimental effect on the legs sooner rather than later.

    As for the hurling semi-finals this weekend, there is a growing sense within local circles that Naomh Eanna have a decent chance of defeating St.Martin's on Sunday. Now, Martin's dished out a bit of a hammering on them in the under-21 premier hurling final a few weeks ago, but it was a lot closer when the met in the group stages before that, and St.Martin's were spooked somewhat by Buffers Alley's physical approach in the QF. In contrast, Naomh Eanna put in an impressive display against a quietly-fancied Oylegate side to qualify for the penultimate round for the first time in 33 years. I am looking forward to it with intrigue.

    Rapparees have also impressed in reaching the semi-finals, and seem to be feeding off the positive energy from their football camp (Starlights is their football club). But Oulart are to my mind still the standard-bearers in the county, and I expect them to qualify for yet another county final.

    Waterford hurling championship was held up.from late April to second week of September. Group stage only finished now. Whoever gets to the final will have played six weeks in a row with the Munster club being the seventh the following..

    Very hard to avoid though given they went through back door and made AIF.

    Other game is a toss of coin tbh. KOR haven't coped well with being favourites in recent years. If Sk are missing Sheehan and Young as is being mooted then it's KOR to lose really.

    Three Kilkenny SH Quarter Final replays resulted in wins for James Stephens, Dicksboro and Ballyhale Shamrocks.

    Those three teams and O'Loughlin Gaels will go into the hat for the semi final draw tomorrow.

    Crokes were back on form yesterday, no doubt. The loss of Tomas O Se and the sending off dented any chance of a competitive game.
