Replying To clare_sparrow:  "healy has a lot more on his CV than the last 2 years. more like the last 30 years coaching and growing all the time in terms of experience etc. And while they didnt win, they had a top class set up going in the minors. Best set up Galway minors ever had.

How many times to lads have to have it said it to them, minor team must be treated like an academy and nothing else, titles are a waste of time if you cant develop top level players.

Healy the right man for the job."
Few questionable members on that coaching ticket.. in particular what they can coach

It is time that Clarinbridge put in a statement performance in this championship or else it will be some disaster of a year for them. I think they match up pretty well with the height of the Ardrahan forward line. TJ Brennan, Shane Ryan and O'Brien should be able to deal with them. Themselves and Turlough should go through today.

NIWas at double header in stadium. First game wasn't too bad but Turloughmore always had a nice gap without blowing Moycullen away. Some nice scores from both sides didn't ever have that much bite in it. 22 - 14.
Second game after a sluggish start from Ardrahan definitely had that some bite in it on the pitch and on the sideline. Two management teams were at each other for whole game, Sean Doyle and Niall Moran renewing Clare and Limerick rivalries on the line anytime they got near each other and had to be split a few times. Ardrahan showed great determination in their fightback and will be kicking themselves, especially missing 3 scores in last few minutes to go ahead once they leveled and it felt if they got ahead with any of those shots they would've won. Huge credit to Niland who came up with a huge score to push them back ahead by 1 in dying mins. Ardrahan pushed up looking for equalizer or winner they got caught at the back for a goal. Some game, one of the first proper all on the line championship games of the year. Ardrahan had their chances but like the Sars game let a bad start get the better of them again. Johnny Glynn a huge loss for them and probably could've swung game in their favor. Clarinbridge at times look like a great team and at other times can look rudderless for all the talent they have. Niland gave an exhibition of free taking and while quiet enough from play still came up with probably the biggest moment of the game. After seeing two of the main challengers to Thomas's and even loughrea, I don't see them really beating either tbh. Clarinbridge struggled big time once Ardrahan started going direct in second half and looked very suspect once TJ Brennan was bypassed as a sweeper by ball going in. Turloughmore just don't have the fire power up front to put up a big enough score to beat those top 2 teams and always leave teams in the game no matter how much better they are playing than them. Both have no shortage of good hurlers but maybe lack a bit at opposing sides of the pitch.

Fair play to Cappy. They put the result against Moycullen behind them and were back on song today. Ja Mannion and the two Collins' boys are a handful once it is a dry ball.

Cappy are back in another Quarter Final and would love to get Cashel or Oranmore in the Quarter Finals!

You're definitely better at the club predictions than the county stuff. Stay local; no need of a passport or perhaps even a driver's license!

Yeah. Hard to pick these matches. I suppose I'd go for Oranmore and Loughrea.

Loughrea , Thomas's , and Turloughmore for me. I'd give a hesitant vote for Sarsfields to overcome Oranmore ---- Sarsfield's experience to see them through.

Great draw for Turlough. I'd say if you told them at the start of the year that they just need to beat Castlegar to be in a semi final they would take your hand off.

I wouldn't rule them out from producing a shock. There was six points in it last year in the quarter final and that was a rotten day for hurling which wouldn't have suited Cappy at all. Liam Collins gave them a torrid time that day with Fintan having to be moved off him and they ended up double marking him all second half. Obviously Thomas' will be overwhelming favourites but it is a dangerous game with Cappy having nothing to lose.
