It's wide open and any team could be knocked out bar castletown. Raharney have southern Gaels left so they should be through aswell. Cullion , Ringtown and plunketts fighting for 2 spots essentially . Was anyone at the games last week ?

So Raharney v Castletown and Cullion Ringtown are the semi finals?
Who do we fancy? I think they are fixed for the same evening of the All Ireland football replay so they may be moved around.

I seen the plunketts v Ringtown game and it was a game of two half's with a high number of frees. Not a great game to watch with I think 14 scored frees for Plunketts and 8 for Ringtown ( in the paper). The championship really starts now so form doesn't mean for much but no team is coming in on fire. Raharney will beat Ctg by around 8-10 points easy win Imo. Cullion v Ringtown will be a toss up. Cullion hammered Ctg who are a shell of the team they had at the start of the year . Ringtown best Cullion a week ago but struggled against Plunketts so it will be a great game I'm hoping if the game two weeks ago is anything to go by intensity wise.

It was great entertainment two teams who wanted to play and a ref who didnt want to be seen. I dont know about Cullion getting over the line as aparte from the opening and closeing ten minutes Raharney were better but Lets hope its as good saturday

Jack Galvin is the difference between winning and losing. Just depends how much Raharney can stop him or keep him out of the game.

It was a great game.
He's a fine young player, with an unusual style.
In any of the games where he was curtailed Cullion didn't have anyone else to make an impact due to lads injured
