Would love to be positive but......
Now no candidate for Senior from what I'm hearing. Players getting restless as Clubs start to be eliminated from Chsmpionships.
No word of an outcome of u20 interviews.
No sign of a Minor manager
Not to mention no moves on getting land for a future Training Centre
No sign of any improvement works to the Hyde.

Ah sure it'll all work out grand.....

Replying To dave1988:  "I totally agree that a center of excellence should be number 1 priority but are you surprised we are in the situation we are in with the county board we have. Of course they will come out and try give reasons why we don't have proper training facilities but it's just not good enough when you see teams in division 4 with better facilities than we do."
Imagine the CÓÉ we could have if we ran a few fundraising draws for the likes of a house in Dublin or an apartment in London, possibly 2million could be raised. Could even have change left over to make sure there are 4 dressing rooms available in the Hyde for a double header.

Yes I always paid into the Club Rossie Draw and was delighted to do so. Hasn't happened for a couple of years maybe because of Covid. Times are hard but still a serious fundraising effort would be supported by Roscommon people. I have no doubt of that. I 'd like to see Roscommon teams with as good as facilities as any other county. Our County Board seems to be slow to move to say the least.

Nothing between Faithleachs Glaveys separated by the final scored (a goal) in extra time time.

Glaveys current and past county lads stood up especially Andy Glennon and Fitzmaurice. Diarmuid Murtagh didn't deserve to be on the losing he could have done no

Some very interesting semi finals ahead.

Boyle v Glaveys
Brigids v Clann
Oran v Strokestown
Pearses v Ros Gaels

In hurling we have the expected final Pearses v Four Roads

Dramatic win for the Glaveys right enough.
Pity about the radio commentary and we didn't cover ourselves in glory doing the draws live on radio.
Interesting draw.
Be great if the winners of Boyle and Oran games draw each ithwr in the Semis.s

Exciting match it appeared in Ballintubber but you'd had to fear for either of them whoever got through given the scoring concessions. I'd imagine Glaveys will be at a disadvantage v Boyle now after that battle and probably had knocks coming into this one as it.

Yes the draw was a real killnascully effort it appeared by the comments on twitter. This county board just can't get a break at moment but I suppose you reap what you sow!!

Couple of tasty ¼ finals next weekend. You'd have to fancy Boyle to beat Glaveys, Bridgids to beat Clan. Other two more evenly matched. I'd fancy Oran to shade Strokestown just. However the Town came out of a much harder group and were within a kick of the ball of both Pearses and Bridgids so it could be game of weekend. Not convinced yet of Roscommon Gaels and a lot of local media hype on the basis of a facile win over Glaveys who had targeted the play-off match with their injured players. I think it's a match that could really light the fire under Pearses buoyed by their Div u20 title win.

Did anyone hear if Pat Flanagan had withdrawn his name for the county job. Any word on u20 job.

Yes, Noel Dunning for the u-20 job, and Flanagan likely to be announced as senior manager over the next day or two! Two good appointments for Roscommon.

Why has Kieran Donaghy, Kevin Johnson been approached if Pat Flanagan is to appointed in the next day or two?

With manager distractions and maybe a bit of fatigue from last year, could there be a surprise on the Pearses side of the draw?

12th of June we exited the championship a delay in Cunningham in leaving and we are still waiting on an appointment and even a definite candidate. Don't envy the county board when counties like Donegal are struggle we are under serious pressure. Terrible prep for division 1.

The thing about the Pearses side of draw is they are the only ones who have the know how to win tight big games. Look at strokestown no win in championship and they are in ¼ final and relegated also in league. Oran blew it last year v Gaels kicking it away ,are they a better team thei year?. Gaels probably best placed to cause an upset and ¼ final place to get Pearses.

Dominics v Feurty will be the perceived final in intermediate but its a huge opportunity for the other side now and a one off game against what will be red hot favourites in the final.

With the U20 job all sorted I heard it mentioned today that Liam Tully, who withdrew from the U20 race, is being talked about for the senior job. As we seen in Mayo a lot would depend on who he is bringing in his backroom/coaching team!!

Always a possibility. The distractions can't be helpful, don't think fatigue will be issue but perhaps hunger? Roscommon Gaels have had a number of competitive battles with Pearses over the last few years including knocking them out of the championship at the Quarter final stage 4 years ago.

Its getting precarious alright. Pre season training commencing in November and nothing finalised. Is Flanagan interested. He was quick to distance himself when he was mentioned for the Longford job.

Bit more steel to them now and all depends on if they have the hunger to go for the two in a row connacht.

No disrespect to other posters tag about Liam Tully for senior position and the work he has done at underage getting to two all Irelands has certainly not been recognised by a lot of people including sections of the county board. That said I feel Pat Flanagan would be a better bet at senior level.

As already indicated on here by several posters it's the backroom team who will be crucial.

I'd say Frankie Dolan would love to get one over on Pearse's. It's set up for a very interesting quarter final.
