Excellent game. Barna can be very proud of themselves but obviously the lads will be devastated . Would've love to see them win it

Fair play to both teams, Tuam will greatly benefit from a tough game like that, however as usual the conditions in Salthill make it an absolute lottery..

Which Corofin man? Thought it was Hoare from Michael who was co-comm . 2 matches listening to Ollie is tough work. Well done to Tuam, deserved it in end

Caheristrande are safe after beating MB by five. Some crack in Quellys tonight. Hot favourites to go down but yet survived, great spirit in them instilled by management. Well done Peter.

Mise 87 seemed to have the inside track on MB when he said they were not interested in staying up/ winning. These seems to be the case from the accounts coming from the game.

I know people who know people. Their near neighbours spiddeal might do them the favour and get the relegation scraped, it'll make a wreck of next year's championship. Play it and all will be revealed.
Breathnachs are a team way too dependent on fintan

No surprises in the Corofin and Salthill game. Bit of a game in the first half but the wind played a big part of that.

Tuam and Barna was a fantastic game to watch. Two teams battling it out in real championship fashion. Some splendid scores given the high stakes of the game.

Gormally and McWalter both had fantastic games. 2019 Relegation final winner vs 2019 County final runner up. Shows that there isn't much between all the other teams.

The one think that will console Barna is the youth they have and how they stepped up

Corofin in 2nd gear too good only team who have a hope is Moycullen tuam just did enough. Relegation will be scrapped as Spideal take there fight all the way not man enough to win it on pitch. Incidentally it suits MB as likely there will be no relegation now.

Frank morris a professional ....I'm talking about the tuam v corofin last year the first match (which mysteriously disappeared from the galway bay website a few days after it was put up) the disrespect he showed tuam was a disgrace when they looked.like they could do it......just a bit stupid for the same man to today announce "you can never count the stars out"

I'm pretty sure relegation is going to be scrapped. Cant blame spiddal....19 of the senior clubs did try and get relegation scrapped at the start of the championship

Agreed. I was sure it would got to penalties after Tom Curran's fantastic equalizing point but full credit to Tuam for coming straight back down the field to win it at the death. Barna will be devastated but in the long run it could be the making of them. Both teams are to be congratulated for producing such a fine, sporting game in very difficult conditions.

Great to be able to watch each match on the stream! Corofin and salthill was probably the poorest of the 3 games ! Salthill very poor , easy victory for corofin !
Tuam lucky to win , thought Barna deserved to win , great efforts by them this year ! Think Tuams experience from the final and replay last year stood to them !
Surprising Good performance from Mountbellew , very impressive in first half with the wind ! M Daly have an exhibition in kick passing ! Barry mchugh very good !

St James's fully deserve their lead.

This over confidence is silly from Moycullen. Our trophy cabinet is empty . I realise I was over confident going into this but I'm not togging today. Chasing goals in the first few mins when the points were there to be taken

watching on as a neutral, it was a very enjoyable game, james deserved there lead at ht and moycullen came out much stronger in 2nd half. conroy and conneely the stars on show and probably the best two in galway at the moment. james can feel little hard done by with a few of the refs calls in 2nd half but overall best team won. very hard to see any of the teams that draw corofin beating them however.
