Replying To Fionn:  "Vinnies were terrible.

Kev Mc put in an excellent performance."
What has happened to St. Vincent's? They were awful.

Don't think I have ever seen Vincent's as bad.
Only scored 1pt in 2nd half.
But Jude's definitely owed them one.
Would like to see Jude's win it out.
They will have their work cut out though.

St Vincents were very poor but in fairness to Judes they looked to be well drilled and were extremely hard to break down.
The other game was a cracker. Anyone thinking Dublin's levels might drop a bit with retirements and all can think again. Lads like Basquel and McHugh will surely rejoin the panel in 2020?

Over the weekend in Donegal, Buncrana landed the junior and Naomh Naille were victorious in the intermediate. Tough on Cloch Chionn Fhaola who were forced to play 3 Championship games in a week. They would have been popular winners given the schedule they were forced to endure, and also because of the tragedy that befell their parish back in January.

This Sunday will see Gaoth Dobhair hope to retain their crown against Naomh Chonaill. It's live on TG4 and promises to be a good game.

Tough draw for Judes in the Semi Finals:
Judes v Boden
TD v Crokes

Yep, Basquel travelled this Summer and will be back in Dubs colours next season. Class footballer.

Congrats to my friends in Pearse's. I enjoyed the game, first time attending a final in Ros. Best of luck in next round.

Very good first half just a shame the contest fell very flat in the 2nd half but i suppose the winners had that game won in the 1st half.

Elsewhere former Ballinameen Roscommon junior club footballer Gerard Mcdermottroe had a fine season with Castleknock in the Dublin championship. He once again outscored his team mate Ciaran kilkenny at the weekend which is no mean feat.

Also well done to Ger Heneghan former Castlerea footballer on winning Westmeath county title yesterday and by all accounts James McDermott former Roscommon Gaels player is his showing well with Nemo Rangers as they aim to win a Cork title.

When were Pearce's formed? I see it's their first county senior title..well done to them.

Tooren continued their dominance in Mayo hurling with a hard fought win over Castlebar Mitchell's.

1962. Had played in 7 previous finals and lost them all so this was a massive result for them as they endured their own House of Pain over the years. Would be a very big club , large population stretching from edge of Ballinasloe on the west to Shannonbridge on the east and going about 10 miles north of that line. Quite far removed from the rest of the county and would look towards Ballinasloe as their main town. A proper dual club that work hard at all codes and have a very competitive underage set up. Delighted for them.

1962, it was an amalgamation of Taughmaconnell and Moore teams. It is just outside Ballinasloe. The development of Pearses coincided with a lot of familes relocating to the eastern side of Ballinasloe, to areas surronding Birchgrove and north of Creagh, many of these professional would have been working in Portiuncla, Dubary, Cross and St Brigids hospital. The rise has probably coincided with the decline of Ballinasloe GAA.

Too many miles on the clock for many players. Apparently it's not a happy dressing room either. A lot of dissatisfaction with management apparently.

Replying To avonali:  "Anybody here got any idea how the bookies calculate odds for all the club games that could be happening around the country. Are the odds based purely on form or does their research go a bit deeper? Say an odds on favourite team had some serious injury concerns would they adjust their odds or would they actually know???
It just strikes me that an astute punter with some inside information into a clubs preparations could make a few bob."
Gambling should not be mentioned on any forum.
