Rathnew beat Dunlavin already this year... Have they lost anyone to their senior team since?

It's not what they have lost, but what they will gain. Their Junior B team had a guy back from suspension last night who hasn't played in a year. Scored 3-04 in a final.

One of the best Laragh wins for years in Aughrim this evening. Valleymount quite simply didn't know what hit them. Determination & guts throughout from the Laragh lads. Result was never in any doubt.

Well done to Baltinglass on beating Éire Óg in today's football quarter final replay. They deserved it based on the second half.
However, it really beggars belief that Éire Óg had to had to play their senior hurling semi final yesterday and the football quarter final today. They had three players starting for both the hurlers and the footballers and several on both panels.
I've heard the Éire Óg players are considering not making themselves available for county teams next season as a response.
I guess it will be the same situation next weekend as I understand that the Rathnew v Baltinglass football semi-final is due for the Saturday and the county hurling final on the Sunday. This will mean the same scenario for Leighton Glynn. Are there are Rathnew footballers on the Glenealy team?

Be very interesting to see do the county board insist on rathnew playing on Saturday. If they call it off what does that say to Eire Og? Can't have one rule for one and a different for everyone else. The O'Brien fella from Annacurra was forced to play 2 championship games in the one day a few weeks back.. How do the county board let this happen year after when we have the whole summer to get these championship games played...

I doubt Eire Og would encourage their players not to play for county but I would not be surprised if players refused. There is a big lack of leadership at CB level and has been for a number of years now. If football is called off next weekend there will be huge consequences going forward which would be a real shame.
Precedent is set now so they will have to live with it.

How can the football be called off if it was never even fixed for this weekend in the first place?

One law for one another law for Rathnew. Same old story.

With regard to the Eire Og situation, they had hurling last week, this week and potentially next week if they won on Saturday. The football replay had to be played at some stage and they couldn't rely on Eire Og not being involved next week when the fixture was set. If they decided that the football and hurling couldn't be on the same weekend then the replay might have ended up on October 8th, a month after the drawn game.

It's very wrong if they've decided against making rathnew and glenealy play on the same weekend after doing just that to Eire Og this week though.

So if Eire og had of won both games they should have been made play this Saturday and Sunday again?

Not necessarily. I think that it's not unreasonable to have the hurling this weekend and football the following week, but it's the different treatment of different clubs I don't agree with.

It's about time people realise that our fixtures man from the county board does everything to suit rathnew,its a complete joke and disgraceful what happened the eire og dual players and the Carnew player who played 2 games after each other,the balto v rathnew game should b this Saturday but now all of a sudden it's off....

It was never on in the first place to be called off. Did you see it fixed somewhere no one else did.

I think people are seeing conspiracies where there are none. Unfortunately Eire og drew in both codes and were forced to play both days. The blame for this shambles lies squarely with the people who voted to defer the start of the championship for four weeks earlier this year. I believe the fixtures man was not involved in this decision due to ill health at the time. I'd be interested to know what way the Eire og delegates voted that night?!!!!!!

What way they voted is irrelevant. The simple fact is the county final is, was and is always the 8th oct but now,bang, its off to facilitate guess who !!!!
