Great win for Lavey, Kevin McDonnell doing fantastic work with them despite not having Raymond Cullivan for selection, can they cause an upset and beat Castlerahan and get to a final? I wouldn't be surprised.

Yeah. they have some decent players, I think they'll need the rub of the green to get to the final but it's not impossible

Good game in Lavey. Thought Lacken were the better team in the first half and McQuillan wasn't giving them much. Lavey sussed then out in the second half and finished well. Might give Castlerahan a game.

Was Niall Mc Kiernan playing for Lacken against Lavey? Didn't hear him mentioned.
Will be an interesting match with Castlerahan and Lavey but i think Castlerahan will shade it.
Think Crosserlough might have a bit too much for Gowna but there wont be a whole lot in it.
Overall this was a good championship and its nice to see good crowds at the matches and a bit of atmosphere in the club venues. Hopefully Mickey Graham has found a few potential players for next years campaign.

Great win for Lavey at the weekend. Showing that league form is irrelevant. They have over achieved again and have a chance but I think Castlerahan will be too strong for them the next day.

Bar a miracle performance, it looks like Ballinagh are for the drop too.

Jack McKenna being sent off for Laragh and suspended for the Cucu's game will probably swing it in Cucu's favour for me.

Mullahoran maybe coming good at the right time.. but Belturbet are no great shakes.

Crosserlough, Cucuhulainns, Killinkere my predicted winners.

Not a hope, lucky draws can get you so far, it will be a lopsided semi-final.
The other semi will be a classic, two teams that along with the disappointing Ramor will battle it out for years to come and will herald a resurgence in Cavan football.
Possibly the last chance for Castlerahan, we've heard that before, I believe the winners if Crosserlough and Gowna will win the Championship.

Yeah, heard you the first time. Lets wait and see, I think Lavey have a chance, not a huge chance but maybe 25% to Castlerahans 75%

Lavey are as good as anyone on their day but I think cullivan missing is a big lost and think castlerahan will have too much.

Crosserlough got a good draw in group made easy work of ramor but I think gowna are stronger and have better forwards

Gowna to win the championship

Easy work of a badly managed group I'd agree, there's a big challenge for Crosserlough in Gowna and whoever wins that will win the Championship.
One of them will face Castlerahan and either Gowna or Crosserlough will be champions.

Outrageous decision to hold all the semi finals of the championship and the minor Div One final all in Kingscourt. What sense does it make dragging teams and supporters all the way up there for?

Setanta, you seem to be continuingly hinting at issues with the Mgmt. Like the Mayo women, I think you should provide specifics if you want your gripes to be taken seriously...

Lavey certainly arent as good as anyone they are a Division 2 team at the end of the day.Castlerahan will beat them by 10 points. On the other side we have xlough who were bet by Cootehill in the championship & now facing relegation & Gowna who couldnt beat Ramor who played the whole game with 14 men. Castlerahan have been the most consistent team and should win the championship easy. Its certainly not wide open as its castlerahans championship to lose.

I don't believe that the Junior Semi Finals were in Kingscourt and the Intermediate Semi Finals will not be there either, the minor Division 1 Final is in Killeshandra why try putting out misleading info?

To be fair to lavey they have been making the quarter and semi finals the last couple of years although I think they are not good enough to win it.
Castlerahan have been the most consistent team al year but they also been the most consistent team for the last five years but have no championship to show for it.

If gowna make the final I think they will win it
If its castlerahan and Xlough I think castlerahan will win.
If its lavey and Xlough I think Xlough will win.
