Carlow - Carlow Senior Football Championship 2017

Replying To WHISKEY:  "Two good matches to look forward to. Rathvilly look to be the favourites but I wouldn't rule out Old Leighlin. Couple of close matches will have helped them this year.

Pal and Eire Og will be harder to call. Pal on paper look strong but Eire Og have all ready accounted for them in the League Final so they will be going into this with a win behind them so anything can happen. A seat in Dr Cullen is on the cards this Sunday......"
Has to be said Eire Og didn't look very impressive over the weekend in a game where Tinryland could have won had Broderick not missed the penalty. Tinryland had gained a bit of momentum in the second half but dropped the heads completely after a very poor penalty from Broderick, who to me, looked as if he had no interest in being on the field.

Eire Og won the league final but neither team played at full strength and there is a huge difference between league and championship. Hopefully it turns out to be a good game and isn't a repeat of the league final which was an extremely poor showing from both teams.

Can't see OL putting up much of a fight against Rathvilly. However, Btown managed to give them a good game so stranger things have happened.

Eire Og always rise for the big matches and I expect them to rise to Pal.. Pal going for 3 on a row and you can be sure Eire Og would love to be the team to bring them to a halt.

Would love to see Pal achieve the 3 in a row.......

WOULD YA GO WAY OUTTA THAT. EIRE OG WILL BE SECOND FIDDLE YET AGAIN TO THE MIGHTY 3 IN A ROW SEEKING PAL. WE ARE ON S DIFFERENT LEVEL TO THE REST OF THE CLUBS IN THE COUNTY. I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO WATCHING GROWN MEN IN EIRE OG COLOURS CRY AS THEY ARE BEATEN YET AGAIN. PAL ABU.

I think it will be a lot closer than you think. Very little between both sides I reckon. There will be no more than a couple of points between them.

Interesting games on Sunday. Eire og had plenty to spare over Tinryland and after the penalty was put over the bar - looked in no danger. Pal are a different proposition and will have been eyeing up a tilt against the YI's. A kick of a ball between the two teams I expect. Eire Og have tried out a lot of players and will be no pushover at all.
The other game is very interesting... OL are not as good as they were but are still difficult to beat and have the drive and solidity to test Rathvilly who looked good against Eire Og, Rathvilly have some super players and if big Brendan is in form and is not fouled every time he gets the ball, then Rathvilly should win but one would be foolish to write off OL. Interesting games ahead. My prediction is Pal and Rathvilly to come through to the final.
