Replying To TOCO:  "Ah yeah you are right!. A forward unit that has Carrick top of the intermediate league is much better than the forward unit that has scotstown top of the senior league!. How could I be so blind and stupid!!.."
Thanks you answered the question at the end of your last post. Have a good day my friend.

Best team lost ballybay kicked themselves out of it. Rory Beggan had a stormer of a game pulling off at least three great saves including a penalty. Donal Morgan also pulled off a great save too. Moving McCarthy out made a big difference. Scored two beauties as well as despatching a penalty.
Thought the ref was poor unable to keep up with play, should have awarded scotstown a penalty for Wylie hanging out of Darren Hughes, also not too sure the penalty he did award Scotstown was inside the square. Frank Caulfield should have walked before Malone stupidly through a punch. Ballybay have themselves to blame over the two games they where the best team.
On a side note Paul Finlay's shooting was awesome today.

Ballybay only have themselves to blame. 5 gilt edged goal chances and they scored none. The mixed up their attacks between forced passes that simply weren't on to shooting from breathtakingly stupid angles and this against the worst defence ever to put on a blue jersey. Also Drew dominated Darren Hughes last week at centre half so Scotstown moved him into FF and Ballybay took the bait. Thats 5 years since the Championship win and not even a final since. Just not good enough. Lastly, it was a shocking decision by McEnaney for the Scotstown penalty, it simply was well outside the area. But if Ballybay had the composure and discipline that Scotstown had last week, they still had time to claw back the deficit with points. And lastly (again) its very obvious that just like his father before him, when Paulie finally hangs them up, Ballybay are done. Another superb performance from him. And the fact that he is no longer playing for Monaghan says a lot about the pitiful quality of the modern inter county footballer/robot.

The best team won today. Ballybay left it behind them the last day. Scotstown were much better today and never panicked

Paul Finlay is still one of the best players in the county, how he couldn't get a bit of game time last year was a total injustice to the man.

A good game on SAturday between Ballybay and Scotstown - ballybay will be really disappointed - missed 4 clear goal scoring chances including a penalty and 1st goal they let in was soft and not sure sure the scostown peno was actually inside the square ??
paul finlay was brilliant and I felt he should have taken the ballybay peno as he was on top of his game - Darren hughes also very good and mc carthy was sharp and scored a few nice points - young colm lennon going off was a big loss to ballybay - overall a good exciting game in the balance right up to the end with a good crowd

Junior final yesterday was a rather stop start affair with lot of stoppages for injuries - seans started well against strong wind and were in control - no ball was going into jack and b mc quaid was marking him well - mc guirk and kearns were on top in the middle --- currin took jack to the 40 and before and just after HT they scored most of their scores to go 4/5 points up with 20 mins left and never scored again - young kearns kicked a couple of great frees for seans in the last 15 mins and then fluffed a few - the mc caffreys , ben clerkin , shane smith and jack were the main men for currin and they held out for a two point win - 1st championship win in over 40 odd years so well done - seans forward line was poor and no 12 will regret that miss for a long time - Also Seans manager on the pitch the whole time when players were injured having words in refs ear and dicks too - he should have been chased

Agree totally... in fairness I think ref put him out at half time. It wasn't a pretty game and seans threw it away. Kicker kicked 4 wides from his good side in 2nd half and seans screaming for peno in last minute was great call by ref or his officials. Thought ref had great game under serious pressure and seans lost it more than a case of currin winning it... However well done currin

Fair play to currin. First junior champions since 1972.

Currin did do the intermediate double in 1935 so hope the win yesterday is put into perspective. Good team but no way near the great teams of old.

Best wishes in ulster

Not sure if that is meant to be a smart remark but between listening to older folk growing up and reading match reports it seems that currin had great teams in the 1930s and 1940s. At 1 stage they had six players on the county. They regularly played blaney and other senior teams. Sure in 1935 i think pat mcgrane was playing for currin. He won the league with them but went to enniskillen before the intermediate championship final

During the 125 celebrations the 1935 double winning team were forgotten. Hopefully they will not be forgotten this time.

Currin beat castleblaney in the junior championship in a reply in 1937. The game was played as a curtain raiser to the monaghan v wexford national league game on the 31st of october. Currin won 2-03 to 01-05. From the report 'the game was punctuated by ugly incidents,:players and spectators indulged in fisticuffs and some of the visitors recieved rough handling. "

Congrats to Currin on there win really golden period the last 10/15 years with a small squad credit to all involved.. However the incident and antics involving a certain individual is really disappointing and shouldn't be tolerated by Currin under any circumstances...

Does it matter? They are the champions and that's it ... what's happened is irrelevant! Do you think they are worried about it up in Scotshouse???? Sean's blew it again ..

As a former currin player it was not nice what was done. By the way currin is bigger than scotshouse - it also include most of connons and drun.

On behalf of the currin people who did not like what was done sorry.

All i can say is that something very upsetting was done and it seemed to be a form of bullying
