Cork could put up any score, expect they will make wholesale changes when they are 15+ points up on the Dubs. Donohue going nowhere with the Dubs and its about time he realised it.

Once Galway lost to Dublin, Kilkenny and Cork were delighted it was Dublin in the Leinster Final.

When it comes to Leinster finals it's a one horse race in both codes. Boring

That's probably true.

For a team that's gone out they've had a massive impact on the championship.

Kilkenny in a semi final now without having to break a sweat.

Offaly could catch Dublin based on what we saw yesterday.

Jesus it was fierce depressing watching that leinster final yesterday. Hard believe we lost by 6 points to that dublin team only 2 weeks ago. I think it was anthony daly who said after the match the galway players and management need to have a long look at themselves after watching that dublin performance. Does anyone have any word on henry is he staying or going? He surley has come to a decision by now

I'm not convinced the Galway we have seen during the Leinster Championship would have fared any better then Dublin. we are an embarrassment right now. We have a lot of work to do and playing half-fit half interested-players clearly is not an option.

The thing is Kilkenny haven't a snowballs chance in hell of winning the All Ireland but strolled into the All Ireland Semi Final couldn't beat Carlow or Galway and scraped past Wexford!

It was fierce depressing there watching it. I guess if you do not turn up collectively on the day and tactics are poor in Hurling you get massacred and rightly so. So yeah its depressing.

I think Galway would've put up more fight tbh.

Heheh...what a joke. Galway need 'a long look at themselves' for their own performances. Now, lo and behold, they need 'a long look at themselves' for Dublin's performances!! You couldn't make it up? Well you could actually, when it comes to southern hurling pundits in the media firing shots at Galway. Not a word from Daly about Dublin or Donoghue needing 'a long look at themselves'. Why the sudden trajectory calamity for Air Dublin, when their trajectory was so on trajectory to date..... according to Donoghue's recent soundbites?

Totally agree.Dublins All Ireland final was against Galway as always and then they don't back it up.Galway always able to rise for Kilkenny.They would have given them a better game but probably wouldn't have won.

It's limericks to lose but loads of things can happen. If Clare and cork took out Limerick I'd be nearly certain Kilkenny would win the all Ireland.

Took out Limerick is it? 2019 the last time I think. That's FIVE YEARS ago.

Yes I think Galway would have been closer than 16 points to KK too. People talk about Galway's inconsistencies but that is just ridiculous!

I'm sure you would give them every chance if they get to the final and happen face the same opposition as in the last 2 finals.

Just saw the Limerick captain thank the 53 people in the back room team. That's an awful lot of people volunteering and donating their time for the cause!! or like I said last year, the game is amateur in name only. I'm sure some will say you still have to win the game on the pitch, that's true but 53 people managing everything from video, statistics, medical, S&C, psychology, masseurs, marketing, PR, diets etc helps a lot. Look up to the sky next time and see if there is a drone making real time analysis and decisions during a game. We are at the Sham-amateurism stage right now where we think there are maybe 5-8 teams that can win an All Ireland where in reality in hurling and football there are 2-3 max, in time more and more counties will be seeking seeking refuge in the McDonagh and Ring cups.
