    20 minutes into the Limerick hurling final, a near riot, almost every player involved. One yellow card. Sympathy to the ref on his first final, but there should have been at least four reds.

    Summerhill will play Simonstown in the Meath SFC Final. Summerhill beat Gaeil Colmcille 1-15 to 0-9. Gaeil Colmcille have now lost 3 semi finals in a row.

    Which 4 players would you have sent off.?
    Remember he doesn't have the birds eye view you have on TV.

    Hmmm..... it's nice to know it's not just 'Galway' where the clubs knock lumps outta each other.

    Those were my thoughts too. I take your point entirely. Remember I said sympathy to the ref.

    However I would like to see it again as I think a lineman was close to alot of the action.

    The Donegal County final between Kilcar and Naomh Conaill must rank as one of the worst football matches of all time.One point each in the second half,due to the horrendous defensive system adopted by both sides.The GAA hierarchy in Croke Park must be blind or don't have the balls to do anything about the destruction of Gaelic Football.Ulster in particular is a disgrace.

    Dublin championship has had similar. What these teams neglect is that they do not have the Murphys and McFaddens and McBreartys and Mulligans and O'Neills to turn defence into attack. Judes against Vincents was similar example of almost totally negative team. Only got turned over when they had two players, deservedly, put off.

    Galway senior hurling championship down to the quarter-finals.

    Craughwell Vs Portumna
    Liam Mellows Vs Clarinbridge
    Gort Vs Killimordaly
    Sarsfields Vs Cappataggle

    Interesting that only 3 players are left in the championship from the Galway team and subs that got on the pitch in the All-Ireland final.

    Ballyduff are Kerry Senior Hurling Champions for 2017,they defeated Lixnaw yesterday in the replay,fully deserved the win,goals at vital times got them over the line,former Kerry hurler Aidan Boyle was MOTM scoring 3-1 and had a hand in a number of other scores,setting up his brother Mikey for a goal in the second half.

    The Boyle brothers scored 4-7 of Ballyduff's final score of 4-13

    Final score was Ballyduff 4-13 Lixnaw 1-19

    Ballyduff now play the winners of Kanturk of Cork or St Marys of Tipp in the Munster Intermediate Club Semi Final.

    All City final in Waterford too, Ballygunner v De La Salle next Sunday 22nd October. Ballygunner were lucky to edge past Lismore while DLS beat Passage by a point, with both the Gunners and DLS getting their winning scores in injury time.

    Not just Ulster football at all at club level. Almost every club game I go to has at least one or both teams employing a ultra defensive system. You still get good games sometimes and sometimes you get stinkers like what you seen in Donegal.

    Anyone see the Clarenbridge v Tommie Larkins game at the weekend?

    Great idea by Killeavy,On the back of their jerseys, within the number of each jersey the name of all club members are imprinted.

    Kilanerin won the Wexford Intermediate football title after a gruelling extra-time win over HWH Bunclody. I felt it was always going to be a tight game, and it certainly lived up to the billing. It was level at HT, before Matty Forde turned on the style with a quick 1-2 after the break. Bunclody showed incredible heart to keep plugging away, but were helped by two rather fortunate goals to force extra-time in the end. Ultimately though, Kilanerin's greater experience told in the end as they accounted for the last three points of the game to win by two points and return to senior after a three-year absence.

    St.Martin's defeated Shelmaliers comfortably in the senior football semi final replay afterwards. These two would be district rivals and wouldn't necessarily like each other, but that doesn't excuse the bog standard fare they produced. Shelmaliers in particularly seemed to be too preoccupied at trying to "rattle" the Martin's instead of doing damage in their own right. They scored one goal and were denied another from an instinctive save from two similar moves in the first quarter, and were well in the game until indiscipline and unforced errors spoiled their chances.

    They were responsible for one of the silliest yellow cards you are likely to see at half-time, when a player who was booked just before the break for some reason thought it wise to get involved in a brief flare-up between two other players and was rightly shown a second yellow. Some sloppy mistakes directly resulted in at least three Martin's points in the first half, and Martin's goal early on was entirely avoidable as well. Shels' proceeded to miss three scoreable frees in the second half (including a gimme right in front of the goal), and only managed to score a further 1-1, as Martin's pulled away 1-14 to 2-4 winners.

    It's crazy, Martin's haven't had a free weekend flitting between both codes since August, and yet looked the fitter team on Sunday. They have the senior hurling final vs kingpins Oulart on Sunday, with my preview of the game to follow at the end of the week.

    Clare senior hurling final was a draw. Clooney led for most of the game but Sixmilebridge took the lead in injury time. Fergal Lynch won a free right at the death and Peter Duggan scored it to send it to a replay (next Sunday as far as I know). Very good game and more of the same I'd say for the replay - won't be much in it.

    The two football semi finals went against most people's predictions with Kilmurray beating Cratloe by a point after extra time and Clondegad beating Miltown well for a finish to set up the county final which will be next Sunday week.

    In the Leinster club IFC between O'Connell's of Louth and Kilbride of Carlow, there were ten red cards supposedly. Kilbride ended with 9 men, O'Connell's finished with 11.

    Surely that has to be some kind of record!!

    Looking on Twitter, both sides were baffled by the referee's decisions.

    Is there a maximum number of red cards that a team can receive before a match is forfeited?

    I was listening to that game on the radio and it was comedic at times. The ref also sent a Kilbride selector and water-boy off the sideline!

    Commentator put it best when he said the ref has simply lost the plot. Wasn't even a dirty game

    I'm just wondering, suppose the game went to extra time and nobody was left on the field except the ref. Would spectators be entitled to a proportionate refund?

    P.S. He was dead right to expel the maor uisce. That's the only way to sort out unruly players, dehydrate them into submission.

    Extra time is considered a new game so sent off players can be replaced by subs.

    Yes, I forgot about that. But would there be enough subs?


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 11,411 Mod ✭✭✭✭Hammer Archer


    Supposedly Kilbride only had 19 players on the panel.

    Seriously, barring a few mass brawls I think the referee obviously completely lost the plot if he sends 10 separate players off.

    No I don't think it's like fifa where you must forfeit when you only have 6 left 😀I think you stay going until one player is just taking the kickouts to nobody

    Most refs have a bit of cop on. Which is why black card is not seriously implemented at club level where teams can barely field 15. Sendings off should be reserved for actual physical violence or intent.

    Leinster in general was a bit of a war zone today. This was at the Crossabeg/Ballymurn v Man O War Leinster JFC game in Enniscorthy today.



    My personal favourite part was the Man O War waterboy in the hi-vis jacket flinging a water bottle only to instantly regret it.
