    Only caught a few of the quarter finals but it does sound like Thomas Davis have a mountain to climb.

    I've still nightmares about my own club men having an off day against Ballyboden in the All Ireland Club final.

    Hope it's a cracker as I've the record button on.

    It wasn't.
    Boden very comfortably keeping TD at arm length and result never looked in doubt. Could have won by a lot more.

    Bit harsh for a double all Ireland winning side


    St. Mullins must have missed that part.

    Entitlement. There's a word.

    Ok we get it. You don’t like Cuala.

    Two All Ireland clubs titles in a row would state they are a bit more than an entitled prima Donna club.

    If they were crap they were crap you should not have to dampen what you think down just because they were Two All Ireland titles. They are in the past

    I don't think the poster is arguing the toss re the quality of the Cuala performance today rather taking issue with prima donna quip.

    Watching tg4 this afternoon and they had a pick the best goal type thing and one was Flanagan for limerick against dublin in nowlan park in the league semi finals.Alan nolan came running out and lunged two footed into Flanagan luckily for him he anticipated it and side stepped after striking.Nolan would need to cut this out of his game refs will surely be watching out next year.

    Every top hurling and football goalie does this

    It's dangerous

    Ballyhale look like the team to beat again

    Ballygunner very impressive today but Patrickswell next weekend will be very tough

    Is it this year the new calendar is coming in ??. AI semis and final in Jan 2020 ?

    A big shock seeing Cuala lose. On his podcast last week, Colm Parkinson was already looking forward to their Leinster final with Ballyhale.

    Gotta love the club championship. Usually always one big upset. Rathnew, mullinaghta, MLR and now this come to mind in recent years!

    I have no feelings towards them one way or the other. Was delighted they won those AIs.

    Probably nothing to do with them, but the onslaught on Nolan as if he was somehow to blame for them not winning is a bit tiresome.

    They lost because they under-estimated the opposition. Anyone who saw Kavanagh take a similarly deluded Dublin team on single handed twice earlier in the year ought to have been expecting a bigger challenge than perhaps they were.

    Is there entitlement among sections of Dublin hurling? Ridiculously, yes there is and they keep falling over on it.

    Ger Cunningham brought a lot of that to the surface. Lads who thought they could keep playing until they decided not to. Then fked off to states in a huff. Then came back and choked when it mattered in Portlaoise.

    Kilkenny senior football champions Mullinavat beat Dublin intermediate champions Ballyboughal 3-11 to 2-11 in the Leinster championship. That is some win for Mullinavat, especially given they haven't played a competitive football game since July. But you'd wonder did Ballyboughal go into the game feeling they only had to show up as they were 3-7 to 3 points down at half time. They go into the semi final against Rosenallis of Laois who beat Fr. Mannings of Longford.
    Wicklow champions Dunlavin surprisingly beat Meath champions Nobber in Baltinglass. They'll play either Mattock Rangers or Monasterevin in the semi final.

    Slaughtneil beat Dunloy 1-15 to 0-10 in Ulster hurling final today.
    Their camogie team beat Loughguile to remain Ulster senior champions.
    Another good day for the Derry super club.

    Kerry County Championship. District side, East Kerry beat Dr. Crokes. Paudie Clifford, David's brother, absolutely ran the show from centre forward and David scored a fantastic goal at a vital time having just had a player sent off to put them 7 points up and the result never looked in doubt 2-14 to 1-7. No harm to see the Crokes well beaten either.

    Austin Stacks from Tralee will now represent Kerry in the Munster/All Ireland series because they won the club championship earlier in the year and a district side cannot go forward to the all Ireland series.

    How does that work. Would Stacks be training away hoping it worked out for them or do they have to regroup on a year they probably drew a line under and were planning the Christmas parties.

    Stacks have been training away. Won a deferred Div 1 League game yesterday by a wide margin. Shouldn't beat Nemo though.

    Naomh Conaill (Donegal) through to Ulster Final.


  • Registered Users Posts: 34,049 ✭✭✭✭ PTH2009


    Hardly going to steam the Munster Intermediate hurling final between Ballysaggart and Fr o Neil's??


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 2,930 ✭✭✭ jr86


    Surely the best-placed non divisional side in the county championship should be representing Kerry, not a team for winning something months ago

    Clearly they haven't been training at anywhere near the level required, and for obvious reasons!


  • Registered Users Posts: 806 ✭✭✭ conor05


    Absolute belter of a match between St Mullins and Rathdowney Erril on tg4. The standard of high fielding and point taking is brilliant to watch.

    Hard to call it

    It was done that way but came into some difficulty a few years back when a County Final involving Dr Crokes ended up going to a replay which was due to be played the same day as the first round of the Munster Championship. A decision was made to send the Senior Club winners (and Crokes' big rivals) Legion instead.

    To be fair to Nemo (who I feel are being disrespected a small bit) they hammered Dr.Crokes this time 2 years ago at this stage. Crokes were County Champions and had been training away. So maybe it's just that Nemo are a great side at this level.

    That was a great match to watch as a neutral. Great hurling played by both teams that Doyle is some man to field the high ball.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,950 ✭✭✭ castletownman


    Those were two of the clutchiest clutch points your ever likely to see from James Doyle. What a way to win a game for St.Mullins.

    Viva le club championships.

    I thought I read that if Crokes drew with East Kerry they would have been represented Kerry even if they lost the replay?

    I can't be bothered to watch another half of Kilcoo and Derrygonnelly.

    Awful stuff

    Painful to watch. Especially after seeing such an amazing game of hurling before it.


  • Posts: 0 [Deleted User]


    I skipped the hurling to watch Netflix too. That first half put me back on Netflix.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 2,930 ✭✭✭ jr86


    The football second half was actually decent enough to watch imo, after an awful first half

    Plenty drama and some good hard hits.

    Glenties will surely win the Ulster final though

    The amount of players ducking into tackles and going down holding ther head like they been close lined. Happening in both football and hurling. GAA need to clamp down on this playacting as someday a referee will fail to stop for someone who is genuinely seriously injured.
