    Junior Ladies football All Ireland replay followed by the Tipp hurling county final at 3:30

    Followed by delayed cast of Carlow football final.

    Rathvilly v. Eire Og ( why don't the latter call themselves something original, like Sarsfields or Pearses? )

    Sars v borrisleigh should be a decent game, if borris can keep it tight Early on they may have a chance.

    2 in a row for Mullineaghta St Columba in Longford football, with a 3 point win over Abbeylara for the second successive year. One would have to have a little sympathy for Abbey, who also lost the 15 final by 3 points. Mullineaghta were always in control, but were wasteful at times and following a converted penalty, the game was level entering the last quarter, but a more efficient Mullineaghta held out for deserved 13 to 1-7 win. Abbey tried to rough up the defending champions at times, but quality won out in the end.
    CLUB football in Longford is not usually that strong, but St Columba went deep in leinster last year, reaching the semi final IIRC, so we might hear more from them before the year is out,depending on the leinster draw

    I hope Poor_old_gill doesn't see your post. He will be challenging your financial standing with the bookies. :D

    They play the Carlow winners next if they win that its a Quarter final against the Westmeath champions. The winner of that Quarter final will play the Wexford or Meath champions in the semi final.

    County senior hurling final down here ended in a draw for the second year in a row,replay next Sunday,Mark Foley is involved with Lixnaw and ex Cork hurler Ger Manley is involved with Ballyduff

    Ballyduff 2-15 Lixnaw 1-18

    It was a shootout between Ballyduff's Padraig Boyle who got 2-11 and Lixnaw's Shane Conway who got 1-10,the two of them put a great show and watching them was well worth the entrance fee

    Conway brought the game to a draw when he put a sideline cut over the bar in injury time,he is a class act.

    Well I have been to 15 Roscommon Senior County hurling and football Finals with my club Padraig Pearses since 2002, we drew 3 and lost 12, but yesterday we won the Senior Hurling Final for the first time in 30 years. Unreal.
    There is hope for Mayo yet!

    Wow that must have been some sense of relief, any player involved in all 15??

    No, 9 u-21s who have no fear, the past is another country and all that, apologies took the day off and quite drunk and have been involved on the sidelines in a small capacity down through the years and wander why i bother, and the last two days have been epic. The GAA is a great organisation.
    Edit: we rarely have dual players something we are trying to address, the fact that most of the young lads won County minor 2 tears ago might help. Some of the older players had lost 7 hurling finals in the past.

    You see its stories like this and the countless others that happen up and down the country that need to be heard and put in the faces of these people who are coming up with new proposals for inter county competitions, the club is the GAA and I have genuine fears that we are heading the same way that Rugby did regarding the club game, I hope to fcuk I'm wrong but that's the way it appears to be going to me.

    Hopefully that's the end of it

    The Preliminaries this weekend won't be up to much (letting four teams through from Senior B is farcical) but it's set up to be the most open Championship in years

    No team looking consistent. Portumna may just do it

    Hand on heart I'm honestly looking forward to the intermediate club matches in Galway this Saturday more than the All Ireland final

    Summerhill ended Navan O'Mahony's hopes in the Meath SFC, winning 2-12 to 1-10.
    I'd expect Navan O'Mahony's to go through a period of transition for a while now. They haven't had a lot of youth coming through and seasoned campaigners like the two Brays, Niall McKeigue, Cormac McGuinness and Gary O'Brien are getting on a bit.
    As for Summerhill, they play Gaeil Colmcille on Sunday in the semi final. You can never tell how matches involving Kells will go, but they have yet to make it past the semi final stage since coming back from Intermediate.
    In the other semi final, it should be a second Keegan Cup final appearance in a row for Simonstown as they play Wolfe Tones on Saturday.

    Rumours of Oulart's potential demise in Wexford senior hurling were greatly exaggerated. Now, under-dogs Rapparees showed tremendous heart to over-turn a six-point deficit at the break to move to within one during the second half, but Oulart's experience at this stage of the championship was the telling factor in the end. Dessie Mythen was a hub of scores at centre-forward, Garrett Sinnott caused a pile of trouble at full-forward, while the largely unheralded Kevin Sheridan caught the eye in defence in front of the onlooking Davy Fitz, which included scoring the injury-time goal that sealed the 2-18 to 0-18 win for the defending champions.

    They will play St.Martin's in the final in two weeks' time. It's pretty much the final combination that everyone would have expected at the start of the year, and in all honesty would have hoped for too. St.Martin's greater array of attacking threats ultimately proved decisive against Naomh Eanna on Sunday, who criminally starved Conor McDonald of enough decent ball. Gorey's backs generally hurled well, although one of the goals they conceded should have been cleared a couple of times in the build-up. Rory O'Connor enhanced his growing reputation with the two goals, and in fairness he has shown maturity beyond his years in this campaign. Phenomenal talent. His older brother Jack wasn't as influential as perhaps a senior county hurler should be, but county footballer Jake Firman really stepped up to the mark with 0-4 from play. Best for Naomh Eanna were recent minors Jack Cullen and Eoin Molloy. They can't be too disheartened by their loss though as it was their first semi-final in 33 years, and they are producing an array of young players that will only serve to feed the senior production line.

    The stand-out game in the county this weekend is the intermediate football final between pre-championship favourites Kilanerin and HWH Bunclody. Both sides have a proud history in senior football, with Bunclody having won two titles in the 1980's, and Kilanerin seven between 1974 and 2008. But fortunes have changed in recent times, and it's in fact Kilanerin's third year in succession in the second tier having struggled to get out of an notoriously competitive grade. But their controversial amalgamation with Tara Rocks has strengthened their first fifteen overall, and they have more or less been untroubled en route to the final, save for a draw with Ballyhogue in round two. In contrast, Bunclody started the group campaign with two consecutive losses, but have been faultless ever since, including grinding out back-to-back derby wins against Duffry Rovers and Ferns in the quarter-finals and semi-finals respectively. So there is a sense that they are more battled-heartened heading into the final, and may be more united too. I would not be a bit surprised if they eked out a narrow win.

    The senior football semi-final replay between Shelmaliers and St.Martin's follows the intermediate final on Sunday. Every week I am thinking surely fatigue will seep into St.Martin's this weekend, but yet they are still here competing on all fronts. In fact, they remain on course for an unbelievable season which has seen them already claim the premier under-21 hurling title (and they are favourites for the football equivalent), the junior football title, and the junior A hurling title, while their ladies' contingent claimed a first ever senior camogie title at the weekend to add to the intermediate football title they also won. So they are potentially three wins away from an unprecedented year in adult championship in Wexford. It remains to be seen what effect, if any, the extra week off Shelmaliers have enjoyed since the drawn game. I think it may come down to fitness levels by the end, whereby Shelmaliers should advance to a novel county final pairing opposite Starlights.

    Ladies and gents, does anyone know if the Galway football final is being shown anywhere tomorrow? I think it could be a good game, two very good sides.

    Not that I can see. Two Dublin SFC games on Eir today, and Limerick SHC final followed by deferred Cork SFC final on TG4 tomorrow.

    Might get something on Facebook or Twitter though, I was able to get commentary of the Wicklow SHC final on Twitter a couple of weeks ago.

    Cheers. Was only able to find any the Limerick and Cork myself too, was hoping I'd missed something!

    Simonstown v Wolfe Tones in the Meath SFC semi final today at 3 on eir Sport 2.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,665 ✭✭✭Bonniedog


    Full house expected in Parnell tonight for Ballymun v Crokes and Vinnies v Judes.

    Vinnnie should win handily but first one could be interesting.

    By my reckoning, there will be 8 of Dublin finishing line up among the 4 teams. Not to be missed!


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,665 ✭✭✭Bonniedog


    Ballymun being backed. Hope they win as we all want to see another repeat of the Philly/Connolly saga :-)

    In Galway, big shock, defending champs St. Thomas' knocked out by unfancied Killimordaly; late Conor Cooney goal can't prevent a 1-point defeat. Portumna beat Castlegar handy enough in the day's other game.

    Mountbellew/Moylough @ 5/2 v Corofin a decent bet in tomorrow's football final.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,665 ✭✭✭Bonniedog


    Kickhams hammered Kilmacud. Vinnies got out of jail with two Judes players getting the line could have been 4 or 5. Ref let them away with some desperate stuff.

    Interesting encounters on way to dressing rooms at half time. Didn't see much as was on terrace side. Presumably TV picked it up.

    Thomas's have been woefully inconsistent this year though and k'daly have some serious young players. I wasn't overly shocked myself if I'm honest. Thomas's just cannot afford any injuries so it's quite hit and miss with them.

    Portumna might be the team to beat but I suppose we'll know more next weekend after the quarters. Again, they have been incredibly inconsistent all championship but have two big wins now behind them
