I think Headford might be the outsiders of the four myself. Did Aran not beat them in the group stages already?

They did by a point. Spiddal beat MB by 6 in their opening group game, but that also means little at this stage.
The truth is any of the 4 are capable of beating each other on a given day. It's wide open.

Micheal brearhnacha are only team who played senior last year. Aran are the only island team. Spiddal only dual intermediate club. Headford only north board team. Whats your point?

Would fancy Headford to win it out at this stage they have the best midfield partnership of the 4 teams left.

K/C look to be one of the favourites to go down.Thier forwards are far too wasteful to dog out a relegation battle. They are going have to rely heavily on Walsh ,Boyle,Warde and probably and S.O.S to Enda Daly to keep them up.

Fancy Headford to go up. Mike Day having a massive year at midfield. Also have very talented forwards. If Padraic Cunningham stays fit and Aaron McDonagh and the Meneghans are firing they'll be hard stop.
Would call a Headford vs MB final with headford to win by the minimum.

Easier to pick the odd one out after todays results. Will be so interesting having two neighbours from South Connemara Gaeltacht in the Final. Whoever loses will jave to emigrate..lol

I'm sure Aran won't take there defeat lying down they'll surely find some grounds for an appeal

It's set up for some final. A proper derby match. An Spidéal beat MB by 6 points in their group match, but this one will go to the wire.

Aran v MB, taught we would beat them with the wind in 2nd half but their experience and goal at that key stage shows they have enough to go up, we didn't make use of the wind and slowed it down instead of pumping it in early.

Spideal v HF, HF had this won if they didn't have so many players start wasting time, ref gave 6 min extra time because of this and spiddal scored 1-2 in this period. Silly display by HF. HF got away with a few high tackles I taught.

MB to bounce right back up with 6 to spare against a small spiddal team- surprised at the low numbers on their panel

All teams will want to drop to intermediate soon to play in a proper championship that doesn't consist of just one team ie Corrofin

Anyone can argue that a losing team threw a game away. Headford only scored 1 point in the last 15+ minutes, when the game was there to be won. They were outscored by 1-5 to a point in this period.
One team stepped up and took the game, including getting the crucial goal in a tight match. An Spidéal won that match by playing to the end and being brave. They also created more goal chances than Headford.
