Just reading through previous messages on this forum there are some awful ******* on it that think they know it all behind a keyboard.
Anyways, Moycullen and Corofin both to go through for me. Moycullen I'd expect to win comfortable enough in the end by 3+ pts.

Claregalway:
As a club outstanding, but as we all know underage success does not mean senior success. So why?
Huge population with so many options for sport. Take any team in claregalway and when you delve down there is at least 50 to 60 even 70% dual players. Turloughmore and Caronmore and some from Castlegar. Coupled with soccer and rugby you get a high number of kids who don't have a sole football focus. A few years ago Claregalway won Minor A and B so why only 1 u19 team 2 years later. Teams only have players every second week etc etc. It will take a long time to get a group of players to drive them at senior level in my opinion.

Would be more fun, and indeed informative, if you listed by username the ******* that you identified.

Moycullen once they get through this weekend will win the final comfortable enough. Tougher game for them against Mountbellew than Corofin or Moycullen.

The pitch is there at Lakeview!
Fully equipped gym. Astro courts?

What else is needed?"
The pitch isn't anything to do with the school. They don't own any playing facilities.

What's everyone's predictions for today? I think they will be both tight enough.
If Milltown or MM win, they will need goals. John Daly to Sean Kelly. Who do you think they'll have on Cooke? John Daly , Mike Daly , Patrick Kelly & Johnny Duane were superb the last day for Mountbellew Moylough. It's not going to be as easy as Moycullen think. There's a big game left in MM and they are going to bring the best out of them today. They also don't want to be giving Dessie handy frees.

They still have full use of all community resources so it doesn't make any difference.

That will be enough for Moycullen to keep the cup for another year. Neither of the sides playing tomorrow can match their running power in Pearse Stadium

Strange game, it never really took off, both teams very cautions of each other. Dessie gets some amount of scores just looping around a player inside the D, it was hard to see the incident at the end, it looked like David W dragging Barry Mc down but Molloy blew the game up and McHugh didn't complain.. Moycullen are hard beat. I hope tomorrow's game is a bit more attacking.

Moycullen win by 3, comfortable enough really. Dessie Conneely played well good club forward.

It never got going. A very defensive game. They were both strong defensively. I said it earlier on; but Mountbellow Moylough needed to focus on a goal if they were to win, and they just didn't get it. They focused too much on defending and they will be sickened not to have won that tonight .
Can't understand why Moycullen still start Paul Kelly over Niall Walsh, who's far better. Paul lost the ball so many times today.
Peter Cooke didn't make much of an appearance after last week's performance. Eoghan Kelly was excellent for Moycullen, David Wynne was solid.
Not much else to report. I still don't think they will have it too handy in the final.

You wouldn't see defending like the Corofin third goal today from an under 8 team.

What? 11 -9 =2. Not 3 and I don't think that even the most ardent moycullen fan would suggest that it was comfortable.

What game do people be watching?. Cooke was excellent. Eoghan Kelly below his normal standard Wynne solid. .agreed

Great excitement in Tuam at the end, who said the game was all about possession, there is still a place for the big man in the square in club football. You'd imagine Corofin won't be as sloppy the next day, but Moycullen will have seen that when Milltown played direct they got chances.

Comfortable win for Monivea Abbey, should be a good game v Kilconly in the final..

You wouldn't. And most under 8s would have made a better job of the free too!

Job done and we are into another final. Looking forward to it. Thought our younger lads like Patrick Egan and Jack really stood up today.

Looking at it from a county standpoint, the 2023 Senior Club Championship has brought about significant positives, including Kieran Molloy and Liam Silke's successful comebacks, Michael Daly and Patrick Kelly gaining valuable game time, and Sean Kelly and Peter Cooke enjoying a well-earned break.

There has also been notable some performers throughout the Championship.

Solidifying Their Significance

Cathal Sweeney, Johnny McGrath, John Daly, and Johnny Heaney

Putting their hand up

Liam Costello, Patrick Egan, Jack Kirrane, Rory O'Connor, Nathan Grainger, Tony Gill, and Sam O'Neill have all stepped up

Surprise Packages

Mark Colleran and Shane McGrath have pleasantly surprised

Age is but a number!

Michael Martin, David Wynne, Johnny Duane, and Cathal Blake proving that they've still got it.

Bright Prospects


Colm Costello, Jack McCabe, Luc O'Connor, Jake Slattery, and Liam O'Conghaile are the future stars to watch.

St Michaels in bother after that defeat at the weekend. Some result by Naomh Anna given that they had been beaten in all of their group games.

I hope PJ & co are able to decipher the relevant information here, from all these new 'oscar categories'.
