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

I think the likes of Liam Costello, Kirrane, Grainger and Gill have been in county panels previously but were unable to make the necessary impact, don't know if the postman will ring twice for them. O'Neill appears to be a good prospect, as does Egan and (going on yesterday's showing) McCabe.

And apparently have another appeal on going,

Rory O Connor from Tuam definitely deserves a shot...

Surely don't have a leg to stand on at this stage? I thought DRA was the highest level of appeal they could go to ?

As expected Corofin Moycullen final & I see Moycullen winning it and also having a serious say in All ireland series. Just on that do we know the draw as in is it Leinster or Munster? Presume its not Ulster (as they played Derry last year in semi). Dont see a team in Connacht stopping Moycullen. All credit to Naomh Anna did not see that coming and Michaels in serious bother now but expect them to get the win v a poor An Spideal team however are likely to need a result against kilanin in last game. Maybe they should have concentrated on football as oppossed to appeals. is there any truth in rumours they are going again with it?

This appeal is that they are requesting one go down as that's what the old rule states as they are going off old rules for points difference in relegation, madness!!

Pretty sure it is Connacht vs Munster and Leinster vs Ulster in the semi finals.

That's a big assumption, they've to beat Corofin who may have a bigger hand to pick from the next day, they had the younger Silke brother starting yesterday back from injury and Steede came on, Ciaran Brady, Martin Farragher, Dylan Brady and Canney may be back for the final was the word in the stand yesterday and Daithi Burke may be available after the hurling final. They'll still be missing Leonard and Ian Burke but that is some panel. Then if Moycullen do win Galway as expected they could face Breaffy powered by Aidan O'Shea and Ruane, or Ballina or St Brigids down the road both with the pedigree of winning it out with massive pedigree. If they get out of Connacht your are still looking at some of the big boys also in Nemo, Kilmacud or possibly Crossmaglen. I haven't even mentioned Glen who did a job on them last year. The focus has to be on the 5th of November.

Should be Munster this time. Played Glen last semi, and Pearses played Kilmacud the year before.

4/11 Moycullen to lift the cup with the bookies. Thought they would be a backable price if they were a bit bigger but obviously not many people will fancy Corofin for this one.

Should make for an interesting final I don't think it will be all that good tho, I would expect a very cagey affair with nothing between them Corofin got very soft goals yesterday and I would suggest they won't get the same the in the final, it will be tight i think moycullen will just shade it but they will need to also improve on Saturdays performance,

They'd have a better chance of beating Moycullen by starting the young lads Egan, McCabe etc rather than bringing in players who haven't played all year. They will need runners in their forward line to run with Sean Kelly, Mulcahy, Eoghan Kelly and Wynne when they burst forward. They won't cover enough ground in Pearse Stadium if they line out the forward line with Sice, Farragher, Canney, Leonard, Silke. You either need to sit everyone behind the ball or pick the athletes to match them if your are going to beat Moycullen. I just can't see them matching up with the Moycullen hand passing game unless it's brutal weather (which is always possible in Salthill).

Glen absolutely didn't do a job on them. It was 1-11 to 12 points. It was an extremely tight match and Glen got a fierce lucky goal that at the end. Maigh Cuillin saved the goal, it bounced back and rebounded in. I would love to see them go far; but let's focus on the county final first of all. Corofin are extremely strong and have a real hunger to come back. I think the match will be close , both teams are going to need to bring their A game.

We came a cropper this year because we had to play Sean Kelly on 1 leg. The last thing that man needs is a long run with the club.
