    Incredible effort by Kerry. Congratulations Antrim.



  • Registered Users Posts: 949 ✭✭✭conor05


    And the phantom free that Antrim got and scored near the end.

    You'd always think the powers that be didnt want Kerry to win!



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,430 ✭✭✭legendary.xix


    The powers that be are doing everything to keep Kerry out. Disgraceful.



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,015 ✭✭✭Billy Ocean


    Can't see it happening but would love Kerry to be part of a 6 team Munster championship next year same as Leinster, looking at Munster in the last few years there's been plenty of 1 sided games involving the 'big 5' so wouldn't read much into the canon fodder argument.

    The way Waterford played in the last game v Clare, Kerry would have gave Waterford a right game of it.

    Are you serious, Kerry got one soft free after the other for the whole match. Check out the penalty that never was.



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,430 ✭✭✭legendary.xix


    Kerry were robbed, despite shooting ourselves in the foot as well. Is it common in Dublin hurling circles to award a free to a player who falls over himself??!!



  • Registered Users Posts: 21 teamddr


    your High you have to be. The amount of soft frees Kerry got in first half was disgraceful. That penalty was a joke

    Overall kerry are improving every year ,It is a mighty achievement by Kerry to get to 3 finals of the joe mac .There is a grand total of 8 senior hurling clubs in a small pocket of north Kerry in total to this year .Great to see players from new Tralee club and Dr.crokes make the brealtrough onto the team panel .We will see kerry winning the Joe mac cup within a year or two but what then after .Into muster to be whipping boys .Lenster championship hurling would be more suitable for Kerry progress .

    They will give wexford a run for their money in the next game

    Climb down off the bar stool will you, the ref allowed you to play against 14 men for the last 10 minutes and it still took a mysterious phantom free from a diabolical ref to put away Kerry.

    The McDonagh Cup is a competitive championship. Laois, Offaly and Carlow will be difficult opponents next year. Down and Kildare are improving all the time.

    Preliminary quarter-finals cannot be taken for granted. The best scenario is that Kerry will give Wexford a fright. The nightmare scenario is that Wexford have it too easy.

    Kerry gave Limerick a fright going back nearly 20 years. A repeat of something like that would be great. The McDonagh has been a great championship. The final was a cracker it deserved. Some of the late decisions when the game was in the melting pot was an absolute disgrace.



  • Registered Users Posts: 21 teamddr


    Yeah the guy that went if for ten minutes that should have got a second yellow. Ref kept youse in it no end. Take your beating and stop looking for excuses that aren’t there. You guys are hilarious



  • Registered Users Posts: 14,495 ✭✭✭✭callaway92


    They will not give Wexford any sort of a game

    They were on the lash last night and will be again tonight

    Might train once this week

    Makes the format even more of a farce

    The Joe McDonagh teams main aim is the Joe McDonagh games. The winners are going to taste 'All Ireland' hurling next year. Imagine a case of the JM winners been knocked out but the runners up end up winning the Preliminary Round and advancing to the All Ireland QFs

    (Waterford coloured glasses on) but imagine a format of 3rd Munster vs 4th Leinster and 3rd Leinster vs 4th Munster as the All Ireland Preliminary Round. Let the Joe McDonagh winners and runners up relax



  • Registered Users Posts: 14,495 ✭✭✭✭callaway92


    Agree completely



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,430 ✭✭✭legendary.xix


    If the preliminary quarter-finals are scrapped, the provincial runners-up should have home advantage over the 3rd placed teams in the quarter-finals. The McDonagh winner however would have to be guaranteed promotion.

    There is scope to expand the McDonagh to 8 teams. The top 4 after 7 group games can enter semi-finals, with top 2 given home advantage. The McDonagh final could then be played before one of the All-Ireland semi-finals.

    Example 8 team McDonagh:

    1. Laois

    2. Kerry

    3. Carlow

    4. Offaly

    5. Down

    6. Kildare

    7. Meath

    8. Mayo

    Example Semi-finals:

    Laois v Offaly, O'Moore Park.

    Kerry v Carlow, Austin Stacks Park.

    Kildare were a step above the rest of the Ring this year. Offaly had to play in the Ring before. I think Meath who have been relegated this year are a step above the Ring as well.

    The proposed 8 team McDonagh above will be difficult for the likes of Mayo and Derry. Similar to Westmeath and Antrim being in Leinster, a year in the McDonagh for Mayo or Derry should help them raise their level.

    Very very sad news coming out of Tyrone and Dungannon tonight!



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,015 ✭✭✭Billy Ocean


    Terribly sad, condolences to his family and friends much be an awful time.



  • Registered Users Posts: 5,963 ✭✭✭windy shepard henderson


    rest in peace damien , condolences to his family and friends , he will be a example of brilliance forever in tyrone hurling , excellent player ,so sad



  • Registered Users Posts: 17,874 ✭✭✭✭Mantis Toboggan


    You'd have to wonder what's gone wrong with Kildare, hyped up and haven't hurled since half time in the league final.

    Herity's tactics look outdated, maybe he's not the man to bring them forward.

    They look a different team to the one from the league final. Any chance they might have had today disappeared with the red card after 10 minutes. Offaly scored the next 1-7 without reply and that was that. Kildare shooting was very poor...awful lot of bad wides and balls dropped short.



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,941 ✭✭✭cute geoge


    Kerry gave a gutsy display to grab a draw with carlow at the death ,carlow probably are a stronger outfit overall then Kerry but Kerry are still in with a shout so all to play for Kerry V Kildare next weekend.Kildare at home so Kerry will have more then enough to do to get a result



  • Registered Users Posts: 38,187 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    Carlow definitely after improving on there league performance

    Looking like Offaly will have enough to get a final place and it's hard to predict who will join them



  • Registered Users Posts: 617 ✭✭✭supernova5


    wonder what's going on with Down, they are gone into total meltdown..



  • Registered Users Posts: 501 ✭✭✭C4000


    Mayo currently 12/1 outsiders of 6 for the Christy Ring. Got to the final last year ahead of Derry, London and Sligo who are all shorter prices. Narrow defeat away to Meath at the weekend was not a bad effort at all....
