Scored 3-14 from play and won by nine even though our top scorer Ben Brosnan was carrying an injury.

So, so proud. We have very good young lads coming through together, midfielders Rory Heffernan and Liam Coleman have all the tools to play county already despite being 20 and 19 respectively, Frank Roche is perhaps our best marker in defence and Brooks is a powerful runner when he gets the chance.

Funny story. Half-time in our quarter final vs. Horeswood in what is considered a cracking game, an ould lad who is regarded as a bit of a GAA buff cornered me. Programme in hand, he pointed out Masterson, Morris, O'Shaughnessy and Holmes saying you can't win championships with that number of old lads. I will make sure to mention that the next time I see him

Eleven heaven

You'd see the next generation of the 96 panel pop up on the hurling scene, but the only other external AI winner I can think of is Shane McGuckin's lad Charlie who is a right bit of stuff for Naomh Eanna.

Actually, it keeps up a proud record in my own family. I had my father and uncles involved in all bar the first two of our nine county titles between 1965 and 1981, while my own brother and a few cousins have been part of 2010 and last Sunday. In fact, two of my cousins were the match-winners in each of the last two triumphs. Ye can't beat breeding alright

I think Rory Heffernans dad, Des, has an All Ireland club hurling title with Glenmore if I'm not mistaken.

Well we finally did it, 57 years of trying and after 7 previous final defeats Padraig Pearses claimed the Roscommon Senior Football crown at long last. Despite dominating the game and being 7 points up against 13 men with 6 minutes to go we still needed a last gasp block to save the day.
We had nearly 1000 people at the club house to welcome home the team and the celebrations went on long into the night and onto Monday.
I read somewhere that there was 17 County Finals on last weekend that’s some amount of hangovers.

So Slaughtneil are all in now for the hurling. What type of squad have they there now - will they be fit for Dunloy again assuming they beat Middleton and Ballycran respectively.
Asking a Derry person about hurling is like asking an accountant about farming.

You do know Slaughtneil were in 3 Ulster senior hurling finals in a row doing a double 2016 & 2017?
In 2016 they bet the 2012 All Ireland Senior club champs Loughgiel. And losing to Super clubs Na Pairsaigh(only 7pts) and Cuala in both semi finals.

What you thought would be a funny comment ended up making you look completely silly.

Kiltale's reign as Meath Senior Hurling Champions is over as their 6-in-a-row bid was ended by Kildalkey in a comprehensive defeat in the final replay.
Kildalkey were ferocious from the start and never let Kiltale settle for the entire game, making a mockery of their odds as rank outsiders. It was a tight first half which Kildalkey shaded 10 points to 8. But you felt that Kiltale would come out stronger in the second half. But they were even worse after the break, scoring only 3 points as Kildalkey racked up 1-7 to win 1-17 to 0-11.

Well deserved win by Kildalkey. I genuinely thought they had left it behind them in the last game as they let a 5 point lead slip late on against 14 men. But they somehow managed to up their performance to win their first title since 2011 and their 5th overall. They now play the Offaly Senior B champions Seir Kieran in the Leinster Intermediate championship.

Another outrageous studs showing tackle by goalkeeper Alan Nolan v Cuala. Somebody is going to get very seriously hurt if he's not stopped.

Haven't seen it, was he put off? Not exactly an isolated incident with this lad either.

Ballysaggart V Causeway should be a good game in the Munster Intermediate

Must be only 300 or so at the second Dublin semi final (in the stand at least).

Nobber won the Meath Intermediate Championship today, easily beating Trim by 4-16 to 0-13. Meath U20 player Jordan Morris got 2-5 while ex Meath senior player Brian Farrell got 1-7. Amazingly, only 4 Nobber players scored in the game. Bitterly disappointing performance by Trim who were in their first final since 2012 and went into today's game as favourites.

That's a game worth seeing. Causeway have had a long lay off since their co. final win but I expect them to give it a good rattle, Kerry teams usually give a good account of themselves in this competition.
