U20 Final Novel Pairing

Can't remember Offaly and Roscommon meeting in a final before at any grade. Great to see that none of the usual suspects are there but makes it hard to gauge. Who do people fancy for this?

Hopefully The Rossies but Offaly looked sharp in their semi final. Should be be a good game.

Big excitement in Offaly, flags and banners all over. Probably the same in Roscommon, would love to see Offaly win, but Roscommon will be an big test tomorrow.

Some one beat me to creating this post, I was thinking of posting similar all week but didn't get around to it..while not being biased but I think Offaly are too mobile for Roscommon, Roscommon wont be found wanting I know but Offaly I think will have too much pace and can get goals against a solid but non pacy Roscommon full back line..

Really looking forward to this one.

Would love to see Offaly get the win but nothing against the Rossies obviously.

Good match so far though Roscommon have been very wasteful. Dominating possession but not scoring. Offaly seem more composed.

Offaly made hard work of it. They were way ahead before giving the bad goal away

Fantastic win for the Offaly lads delighted for them. The Roscommon lads can hold their heads up high too. Most enjoyable game. Lovely to see the Lowery family in HQ too.

Good day for the Faithful folk. Roscommon had the better of the first half, but good work by Declan Kelly, and his selectors, got Offaly on the way in the third quarter. Roscommon came back strongly in the final quarter, but Offaly held on. Great game, hard luck to Roscommon.
We will enjoy this one.

Offaly were brilliant all year and fully deserved the win today, hard luck to Roscommon as a neutral at the game it was some atmosphere for an under 20 final. When was the last time an under 20 final was in Croke park?

Finals are won by the team that takes it's chances and Offaly were more efficient at that today. We're disappointed but congratulations to Offaly. A great gaa county which has always known how to get the job done in Croke Park on the big occasion.

Well done Offaly, a very likeable team. Great style of football by both teams. Hopefully this success can drive Offaly on now at Senior. Jack Bryant, Cormac Egan, Cathal O'Donoghue, Cathal Flynn and John Furlong should all play Senior for Offaly. Daire Cregg, Colin Walsh, James Fitzpatrick and Adam McDermott Senior prospects for Roscommon.
