Replying To Yourjoking:  "In Down we our at the semi final stage.

Ballyholland v Warrenpoint tonight, point will go in as slight favs but they will have to break down the Ballyholland wall so not expecting a high scoring game. Point by 2.

Kilcoo v Clonduff tomorrow evening. Kilcoo will go in a favs having won 6 of last 7 championships and beat county champions Burren last weekend, Kilcoo should have to much for Clonduff. kilcoo by 6."
Down county final in 2 weeks with Warrenpoint v Kilcoo.

Point had a big win against Ballyholland they got off to such a quick start game was over after 20 mins.

Kilcoo again in the county final think its now 7 in a row and will go in as favs they just know how to win tight games and i think with there experience they will win it again.

Down gaa streamed both semi finals so for myself it was fantastic, hopefully final is covered too.

Replying To Goitse:  "Thanks Bennybunny. The live streaming of club matches is an excellent development. My own home county, Donegal, are dipping their toes into the waters this weekend with a trial live stream of Naomh Conaill - Glenfin on their own website.

I put quite a bit of effort into writing a post a week or two ago with links included to every streaming service that I could find in the country but the moderators blocked the post. From memory (I'm not compiling the list again unless I know it won't be declined) there was some variation of a streaming service up and running in:

Ulster: Armagh, Down, Donegal and Derry upload the games on Vimeo later that night.
Munster: Cork (occasional through the Examiner), Clare (free on Youtube), Limerick (free on Youtube)
Leinster: Meath (subscription only), Offaly, Dublin (free on Youtube),
Connacht: Mayo

While Sligo & Fermanagh have streamed finals in the recent past.

I've probably missed a few though!"
Thanks Goitse. God, why would such a thing be blocked by moderators. Thanks for posting above. Laois GAA have a very good YouTube channel actually as well. They have highlights. This streaming will be very good going forward.

Big 4 all through to the semi finals but not as smoothly as some of them might have expected.

Gaoith Dobhair squeaked through after extra time against Bundoran who will rue some poor shooting.

Glenties were pushed all the way by Glenfin winning by 4.

Kilcar had a poor third quarter before the introduction of the evergreen Michael Hegarty steadied the ship & they ran out winners by 9. One feature of this game was a magnificent display from Hugh McFadden for Killybegs, he singlehandedly kept them in the game & if he can reproduce this form at county level then the future is bright.

St Eunan's trounced Milford in the last semi and have now put themselves in the frame big time after a poor enough league campaign by their standards.

Semi finals next Sun St Eunan's V Glenties 1.30 , Kilcar V Gaoith Dobhair 3.30

Cavan final pairing is Castlerahan in a fifth final in a row versus neighbours Ramor. It's a repeat of 2016 final which Ramor won after a replay.

Ferbane qualified for the SF final, beating form team Edenderry, by 6 points. CianJohnston was in good form for the west Offaly side.
Champions Rhode reached another final, over coming Clara in a lively game, which saw Clara lose 2 players to red cards in the opening 15 minutes, and a Rhode player also walked in the first half.
Rhode held on for the win, although Clara will regret spurning 3 goal chances in the match.
Rhode lost star players Niall McNamee, and Brian Darby to injury during the game.

In hurling St. Rynagh's face Belmont in the semi final next Saturday. Belmont, who include a number of Ferbane in their panel, defeated outgoing champions Coolderry in the q/ final. They are hoping to reach their first ever Offaly SH final.
On Sunday Birr face Kilcormac/ Killoughey in the other semi final. Birr had 4 points to spare over Shinrone in the q/ final.

It looked like a good quality game on tv in the hurling. Dunloy were the better team throughout, were a bit wasteful in the first half just.

Great to see Lisburn have some success. You'd love to see the GAA grow a bit in such a large place. I used to hate going down there at underage, though. They'd have lads at under 14 driving home after the game:)


In Meath football they're down to 4 with Kells v Ratoath and Simonstown v Summerhill. All had comfortable wins at the weekend. I'd say there's not much between any of them.

Any Donegal lads able to fill me in on IFC? My own club won IFC in Antrim yesterday and I believe we have a home tie against the winners of Donegal in the QF

Yeah, hoping for a good final but it's been a fairly poor championship so far. Very few top quality games and a lot of teams huffing and puffing but letting themselves down when it really mattered. Should be a good final though and hopefully the winner will give Ulster a good crack.

Final pairing not fully completed as Ballyshannon and Clochaneely drew AET yesterday. St. Nauls from Mountcharles await them in the final. Should be a good final either way and the winners will give Ulster a fair crack.

Nothing set here just yet, boman. St Nauls are awaiting the winners of the replay between Aodh Ruadh & Cloich Cheann Fhaola. The replay is due to be played midweek, with the final next weekend, however with a week still to go to Ulster there's still a chance that the fixtures committee might adjust that at some stage between now and Tuesday.

Some achievement by Naas today wining the Kildare SHC Final.
They have now won a clean sweep this year in Kildare hurling :- Minor, Junior, Intermediate and Senior.
Has the feat of a clean sweep ever been done by another club in one year .?

A statement of intent from Gaoth Dobhair yesterday. The consensus seemed to be that if it was a good dry day then Kilcar would do the business but Gaoth Dobhair got it tactically spot on and managed the game well. Goals win games as they say and Kilcar never looked like threatening.

Glenties will have revenge on their minds after last year and will not be easily beaten but I just think Gaoth Dobhair are starting to show ominous form at the right time.

I can't ever remember it being done before, a serious achiement. Serious work being put in there at underage level since the millennium finally paying dividends. Fair play to them.
