Replying To Breffnisbest:  "Senior, Intermediate and Junior Championship with all 3 Championships at Knockout stages call the winners at this stage.
I know that there is betting on the Senior but has any bookie opened a book on Junior and Intermediate."
I don't think so apart from maybe match betting on the two finals with Paddy Power. I think Sean Shields used to but I am not sure if they are still in business. Maybe that's why they are not still in business.

I note Killygarry are 25/1 for the c'ship with e/w 1/3 odds. They have Castlerahan in front of them but that is a big price for a team who beat Gowna and Ramor in the groups who are available at much shorter prices.

Suprisingly big win for Laragh over my Intermediate fav's at the weekend. I would have to install Laragh as the favorites for the moment but we will see what credentials Ballinagh show next Friday against the Cucu's. I think they had a relatively easy path to the QF's with their last two group games so this will be a decent test for them.

Will be interesting to see if Ramor B's can beat Swad to stay up also. Perhaps both teams might want to lose that game to go down.. It would be a good achievement for Ramor to stay up if they could do it.

Is G McKiernan still playing for Swad? Heard some rumours that he was on holidays during the c'ship and also that he was going to the Butlersbridge next year. But I heard rumours of his transfer alot of years for it not to materialise.

Tough job for Mickey Graham and Crotty to turn the Gaels around now with so little time to work with. Some Mullinaghta magic will certainly be needed, but you never know what way things will turn. I think I will stick to my guns with K'scourt by 2.

Mickey Graham is not involved with Gaels setup.Karol Crotty is been assisted by SJ and Brain McDonald

Kingscourt a great price with Paddy Power at 15/8.

K'court, Ramor, Castlerahan, Xlough accumulator is 5.93/1

More so with Johnston out for Cavan Gaels.

Would be very surprised if Gowna, Killygarry or Cavan Gaels don't upset this

Tough to call the Gaels game, with Johnson missing I'm not sure where their scores come from. Where's POC? I don't think Martin Dunne is up to much anymore, he was a decent club footballer not so long ago but there hasn't been much from him lately. Maybe the gaels running power from deep with the 2 Murrarys could swing this game in their favour

A surprise defeat for Ballinagh. They were wasteful. Ramor looked good against Gowna. Conor Bradley very impressive. Gowna looked sluggish and not much game plan.. Oisin Pierson was about the only who stood out for Gowna. Kicked some lovely frees and a great score from play in second half

It was still a good price. But fairplay to Big S & co. for galvanizing the Gael's into that performance.

Trademark organization and intensity on show.

Ramor v Crosserlough should be a decent game after the previous encounter. Its a surprise neither club has a second Jersey, hard enough to make out the colours from both teams

Replying To westcavankid:  "Was anyone at the Ramor vs Lacken game in Breffni Saturday? Heard a few reports that referee Tony Gregory had to be escorted off the field after awarding a few suspect frees to Ramor and playing 5 minutes over the added 3 in which Ramor found a winner to ultimately knock Lacken out."
I think it was the time added on that caused the issues it would appear he said four minuets but they announced two not his fault.

Munterconnachts game should not have been played today.About 11 or 12 of their players were traumatised as a result of the tragic death of a young boy in Oldcastle whose funeral was on Saturday. Most of them knew him and played school football with him this year.Their club should have looked to postpone this game as these lads were in no fit state to play today. Some things are more important than football. Its counselling these lads needed not football.

how was it a good price if it lost?

Ramor very impressive friday night put together some lovely moves and probably should have won by more, wasteful at times. An impressive panel they have.

Gaels showed a great hunger yesterday but i think they could still be found wanting with the loss of Johnston. Nobody looks to be ready to step up and kick 5 or 6 points per game. Martin Dunne looks way off the pace to what he use to be. Young Evan Fortune done a great job on Padraig Faulkner in the middle of the field.

Think killygarry missed the boat castlerahan wont be as wasteful again. Conor Smith is an impressive talent took his goal brilliantly and very cool to slot the equaliser.

Great to see Killygarry giving Castlerahan a good game in the Senior. 25/1 was definitely too big a price for them, although I think Castlerahan might come through by a couple of points the next day.

Kingscourt disappointing against the re-organised Gaels team. Their lack of firepower finally caught up with them as Barry Reilly and Faulkner were shut down well in open play by the Gaels back and experienced new think-tank.

Lavey suffered a similar fate but against a much better team. No doubt now that Crosserlough are strong favorites and will be for years to come with the depth of talent in their panel. It will take a Ramor or Castlerahan in top top form to turn them over I feel.

Ramor also looked impressive and brushed a lightweight Gowna aside. Some strength and conditioning maybe needed for the Gowna lads over the winter to make them competitive at the C'ship top table I feel.

Ballinagh proved to be another team showing that league form does not really have a bearing on c'ship form, although they probably threw the game away rather than being outclassed. Evan Doughty is a superb attacker, would definitely have the class of a county man if he has any interest in committing.

I would say that Drumlane might lack the depth and firepower to win the Intermediate but it is hard to separate the other 3 teams that are left. Laragh probably slight favorites.

In the Junior, it looks like Killinkere are finally going to get that elusive c'ship after a good performance at the weekend. They will have to significantly under perform I feel to lose to Shannon Gaels even though I don't think the match will be easy for them. Denn and in particular Knockbride will probably be kicking themselves with how easy Killinkere may have had it in the semi's and the final to win the c'ship.

Gaels although not that impressive had their homework done on Kingscourt.
Killygarry wont get a better chance than they had yesterday.
Ramor looked good Friday night but Gowna were poor.
Crosserlough look to me a very complete outfit.
I'd go for a Gaels v Crosserlough final with Crosserlough winning fairly comfortably.
That final pairing would leave Crotty managing the Gaels against a Crosserlough club where his dad won 7 in a row back in the late60s early 70s... interesting!

Didnt get to see any club games over the weekend, Ramor result is the standout. They are right in the mix again.
Castlerahan look to be just stumbling through and SJ loss to gaels will be ultimately costly.

Cucus and laragh should be a cracker though laragh were my tip to win inter start of the year so ill stick with them. Has Evan doughty ever been in with county, one of the best club forwards in county

Junior results probably went the way i expected, if killinkere can stop leaking soft goals at the back they will be favourites but shannon gaels could spring an upset. Will they have aron o'hara or niall walsh available for final? if not then i would strongly fancy kkere. Taut munchies would push killinkere harder

Yes one would have to say that full forward for Cuchulainns was the only stand out player over the weekend in Breifni. Not sure if Micky was there but his side kick was so lets see if he get's a chance., It would have to be said however there was nothing special from the opposition. As for the Ramor Gowna game it would be hard to find a county player amongst them and I am not sure if Ramor have anything to get to a county final. Crosserlough scoring 3-19 must make them hot favorites for the senior title.

You must not have at the game Sean. Conor Bradley was impressive for Ramor. Ado Cole done alot of damage in first half. James Brady was good too.
