Replying To slasher9:  "Your always getting digs in at mullinlaghtas standard of football. They are the standard in longford!! shooting yesterday was off but there ball winning and control of the game was sublime! That was a dromard team that wiped killoe off the pitch and mullinlaghta were in cruise control yesterday"
Yesterdays game was poor because Dromard were bad. Last years county final was awful because Mostrim collapsed early and easily. I don't see the digs at Mullinalaghta (I commended them on here many many times).

But you do you.

Very easy in the end for Colmcille, to set up the first Colmcille-Mullinalaghta county final since 1952. Another poor quality semi-final where the opposition `really didn't show up. Very poor stuff from Slashers. But as with Mullinalaghta yesterday, Colmcille took advantage and fully deserve to be in the final. Hopefully we will have an entertaining final if Colmcille hold their nerve on the big occasion. The last time they met in the decider 70 years ago, Colmcille won after a replay! Could history repeat itself?

got to the park Saturday but could not make Sunday so I cant comment on sundays game.

Junior... very poor standard, in fairness to Ballymore they can only beat what is in front of them, easily good enough to be a middle of the road intermediate team now and looking like they will win the final handy enough too. saying that i didnt see grattans! i wont comment on ardagh/moydow junior B team, should never of been playing a juinor A semi final!!

Inter.... great game to watch, very entertaining, K McCann for Kenagh is going to be a huge player in the next few years for Longford. he is a joy to watch, he was unmarkable, some good scores by both teams and very exciting till the last kick of the game! Drumlish always seemed to have that bit more in the forwards and eventually seen the game out, the game was won in midfield as Drumlish dominated around the middle on both kicks outs!

Senior.. a great start by Dromard and looked as if they meant business but after the 10th min mark Mull took over and never looked in trouble even after a few worried moments. again around midfield this game was won, Mull won all the primary possession and some of the scores from McGivney where excellent. mackey played well and is very composed on the ball and with R Brady inside doing loads of damage. Dromard again needed the older lads to satand up which they did, Bull and McGee where excellent but other than that they never looked liked winning the game! the final we all wanted to see, in my opinion the 2 best teams in the county now battling it out for the connolly cup!!!

A lot of that Mullinaghta team has serious strength and height and big men down the middle. How long is this team on the road? I know they lost a Co final about ten years ago. They are very well coached and all seem to know their role but they should be seeing out games better as that Dromard shot near the end did cross the goaline and anything could have happened then. That could catch them in Leinster. They don't do panic at any stage as they only beat Dromard by 3pts. Colmcille will really test them but I expect experience to prevail.
