Are lads incapable of looking at the club game without wearing their county color glasses and county colored chips on their shoulders, regardless of the entertainment same muppets coming in to slag off this and that with veinly disguised comment put up as opinion, pathetic, personally loving Sunday afternoons dreaming that one day my own club would be good enough to compete at national level

5-07 - 2-15. Derrygonnelly were the better side, just couldn't deal with any sort of high ball.

Although one of the best games of football I have been at in recent years.

Yeh sorry lads, don't know what I was thinking off saying Gaels only scored 7 times, my VERY bad :D

Were you at the Derrygonnelly game on Sunday Ibbecek? Armagh were the better side against Fermanagh in 04.

If Derrygonnelly were the better side how come they conceded 5 goals ?
There's a serious will to win in that Cavan Gaels side and I honestly wouldn't be suprisedv if they turned Slaughtneil over . And they are a fine side this past few years.
Forwards like Seanie Johnston, Martin Dunne , Paul o Connor , Mickey Lyng will take a bit of watching. They have a lot of ability to go with the experience they have.
Makes for a cracking game

Inaroundehouse Dunne none zero against Derrygonnelly, three of Cavans goals came from Johnston dropping shots short, didn't even know Lyng was on the pitch. O'Connor caused serious damage on sunday.

Slaughtneil, Corofin and Memo in semis. Awaiting the Leinster representative now to complete the line up. Predictions???
The S'neil v Memo match is gonna be some tussle

I'd expect Corofin to make the final. Slaughtneil V Nemo too hard to call.

My picks Gort and Corofin still both alive. Gort have a tough match coming up on Sunday against Liam Mellows in the County Final. I think Gorts experience will see them through by a point or two.

Corofin not there yet. They have a trip to London in two weeks. It makes no sense at all. The GAA would be better to give the London champions a trip home to play a game. I'm sure the London lads would have an extra incentive for winning their championship if they got a trip home every year.

It's not the 50s anymore, you can get a flight from the UK to Ireland for buttons.

The idea of a player being incredibly motivated to win his county championship because it's the only way he can take a trip back to the motherland sounds like a Darby O'Gill/Mighty Ducks cheesy American underdog film mashup.

In any case, bringing the London champions to a single pitch in Ireland for one day isn't really a trip "home" for most of them, any more than sending me to play a match in Kerry or Donegal would be a trip "home".

Easy for you as a participant in the Leinster club championship as you never have to travel, but if you are from Connacht, Ulster or Munster the expense is massive. But then again that never happens to a club team from Leinster. Easy option always....... when did a Meath team play in a club semi final? Don't give me your 1950's drival. It would be very expensive to send a squad of 40 plus to London for an amateur game.

Well done to Rathnew on beating Vincent's but heads should roll at Vincent's that's a disgraceful defeat for a team like Vincent's rathnew would be a quarter final team at best in Dublin , to them lose to a 14 man Kildare club makes it even worst on Vincent's.

Hiya Gotmilk,

Well I was not at Gales v Derrygonnelly match.

I was however certainly at Fermanagh v Armagh in 2004.

Don't know what issue is. Best team won.

Indiscipline was one of the reasons for Armagh's defeat which means of course that they were not the better team.

BTW a brilliant call from John Bannon to issue a Red card to McNulty when others would have settled for a yellow,

Best wishes.

Gort should win on Sunday but I cant see them winning it outright, they have struggled in the past after winning county when a lot of other Galway clubs have pushed on and won it outright (bar Loughrea)

Corofin will take some beating but I don't think they are as good as they were when they won it a few years ago, wait and see if they have enough to go all the way. Slaughneil and Nemo will also take some beating - great clash's ahead!

The Galway hurling cship is the most intriguing competition in this country every year and one I always try keep an eye on. Mellows coasted through their group and Gort just snook through a real group of death. Gort are rightly hot favs tho in my opinion but I always wondered why mellow's never competed more often. Their big names are on the wrong side of 30 now so it's a big surprise albeit they possibly got the luck of the draw. Gort by 6

Yeah the KK boys could have done with stitching that penalty.

They're doing well now to be fair to them. It's a pity about the red card.

Yeah, they needed 15 and everything to go right for them and the penalty miss/ save was the end of any comeback.
