Replying To galway19:  "I know Sarsfields had a team in Junior F which would be their fourth team. Coincidentally, they had 42 players listed on the programme last weekend in the senior semi final."
Great to see, but to be fair, it included a lot of their third team too. Great club and nice to acknowledge these lads too.

Replying To Viking66:  "Any idea how many adult teams you have? I presume there must be clubs up your way with 3 or even 4?"
Senior, Senior B, Intermediate, Junior A,B,C,D,E,F are the Adult Grades respectively.
Turloughmore, Clarinbridge, Castlegar, Craughwell and sarsfields would all have 4 Adult teams each. Some Clubs would have 3 Adult teams each, but the majority of Clubs would have 2 Adult teams each..
I think it's 108 Adult teams from Senior-Junior F.

Replying To TownLad09:  "@ Katser Did someone from Loughrea steal your porridge - very obvious from your comments , the delight you seem to take in a few results that did not go their way.

Anyways I doubt very much that your mean spirited jibes will bother any fair minded contributors to this forum.

No doubting the Town will rally again - as they always do ."
It was just misfortune to be unlucky to get knocked out of everything in one clean sweep!
Sure have Loughrea's hurlers their fathers would have come from and hurled with neighbouring Clubs.

I stand corrected.....117 Adult Teams is the answer for our Wexford man!

Replying To Stool Pigeon:  "What a lousy, mean - spirited take.

Mullagh got to a county final, the only one they could qualify for, like it or not, and surely having a bit of local hype and noise around the place is good for the area (I imagine, I haven't been there in a while) and what harm is it doing to you anyway?"
Sure I was going back to Eyrecourt with a wagon load of big bullocks and driving through Mullagh I was trying to avoid Green and White flags everywhere...... flags up high on Telegraph poles one nearly hit my big Scania!!!

Thanks Katser. The game is thriving up there so! We have around 80.

Yes, sure is. Put 10 euro on it and you lose a tenner!

Ah Katser, you seem to have an awful problem with Green and white flags

Why is it a coincidence that 42 players listed on senior team and them fielding a fourth team?

Replying To clare_sparrow:  "Im only having a laugh. You'd want to lighten up. Mullagh lads are always the first to dish it out when they get the opportunity."
I'm not from Mullagh so I wouldn't know what they 'dish out' or not, I'm sure they are as good/bad as anyone else on that front.

But don't lecture me about 'lightening up'. You could do with 'lightening up' yourself, if you're going to have a cut off people enjoying a good year for their club.

Tell us your club then, so we can have a bit of a laugh, since you're all lightened up, so it won't bother you ;)

Really fancy Turlough to win the Final."
Katser you seem to hate SOUTH GALWAY worse than LIMERICK. Hon Thomas'.

I have nothing but admiration for St.Thomas', what that Club has achieved in the last 10yrs is OUTSTANDING, but I have fancied Turloughmore to win the Co.Cup from the start this year!
Who could believe that a team which couldn't beat Gort in the group game "could" win the title!

Replying To Trump2020:  "I'd favor Thomas's but very close. A point or two. You've been right a lot this year so I wouldn't be shocked if you were right about this too. Loughrea and Clarenbridge are my biggest disappointments of this year's Championship."
Indeed! She's great on the club scene, but should stay away from the Inter-county stuff! That's for the big wans!

Minor A final tomorrow in Salthill with Clarinbridge going for the minor and u20 double and three minors in four years. Niland still eligible for this grade and scored 4-14 himself in the semi final win over Athenry. Facing a good Oranmore team with the Keadys, Colm Burke, Thomas Blake. Should be a good game.

You're expecting lots of neutrals then? The combined population of the 4 teams is probably less than 4k I would think.
