Replying To minor77:  "For all the talk about tuam stadium and being the only place to hold big football games they messed up again yesterday having to delay the throw in because people couldn't get in not enough turnstiles open what did they expect a small crowd?"
All turnstiles open, over 6 thousand again on a terrible day, pubs packed beforehand and a great atmosphere. Huge numbers left it very late to arrive, no issues from anyone

Replying To galwayfball:  "But sure you claim silke destroyed murphy? So hes hardly essential in your eyes what does it matter if he goes. Everyone else was obviously watching a different game"
Murphy a different class in first half, ran himself to the ground. Had Silke in trouble. Died out of it in second half

No stadium, regardless of how big or accessible it is, will always be at the mercy of those who decide to leave it late whether they're driving in or if they're still in the pub. How well the pubs or surrounding area does from a game shouldn't be a motivating factor in how well a stadium does imo.

Atmosphere indeed was fantastic in both games. I wouldn't have expected anything less between these two teams. The close nature of the games certainly helped.

With remaining funds and work to do, I suppose you're looking at 10'000-12'000 capacity potentially? I've always felt that this is the ceiling for Tuam and it would allow for smaller profile inter-county championship games.

Well done Corofin again! They keep exceeding all expectations. I thought Tuam would pip them. 7 years in a row is a serious achievement no matter what sport.
Best of luck to them in Connacht & maybe even AI.

I wasn't aware they attached audio to forum posts here, a landmark development for HoganStand!

I suppose it was only a matter of time that we would get Galway v Roscomon senior club final after the last number of FBD and senior Connacht finals of Galway v Roscommon. Pearses will need to defend well to stand a chance but clearly Corofin will be expected to land another Connacht title.

Can see Pearses taking a massive beating in this one.

Pearse's have a very solid defense with a few county players and some young, talented forwards. This will be no walk over for Corofin

Congrats to Oughterard on the intermediate win. Well deserved. Won easily in the end.
Hopefully Corofin can go all the way next Sunday.Anyone who thinks these Rossies will be a pushover are well & truly wrong. Pearses are a well organised, Young physical team. Lots goals scored in the run up to Sunday.. will Push Coroifn
all the way. Tight game in store.
