Replying To WanPintWin:  "Well they were beaten by Kerins O'Rahilly's a few weeks ago in the championship, so they're not that far ahead. They had to go through a round of the back-door to get to today's quarter.
I'd expect them to reverse that result in the semi final though."
They were 9 points up with ten minutes to go and Kerins got two flukey goals to get back into it and momentum switched but it was a group game that Crokes were already through , I guarantee if they meet again Crokes will murder them.

Replying To clondalkindub:  "Jesus Crokes are miles ahead of everyone in Kerry , how are legion gone so bad they only won Kerry a few years back. Crokes class doh some serious forwards on show today but Legion were brutal."
Legion have never won a Kerry championship

Replying To facethepuckout:  "Clann/ Brigids Final in Roscommon as predicted . No love lost between these two neighbours but its not really a poisonous rivalry and should be a good final. Bit of a microcosm of whats happening nationally as these are clubs based in the more populous , prosperous part of the county and have benefited from the employment engine that is Athlone."
It will be if Clann v Brigids happens to be the same final for a number of years in the years ahead but at the moment its the first Clann v Brigids final for 21 years so long ago that some players that will be playing in this final weren't even born in 1997.

They are meeting them again. They were drawn against each other in the semis. I'd expect Crokes to win well, but I was making the point that they're beatable.
A club who are miles ahead in their county would be Corofin, who are odds on to win the title before a ball is kicked.

They've won one, in 1946.

As expected Gaoth Dobhair advanced to the final fairly comfortably in Donegal with Glenties joining them after a tight battle with Glenswilly. From what I've seen so far I'd expect Gaoth Dobhair to have enough to win but Glenties will be a tough nut to crack.

Breaffy into the Mayo final with a 1-13 to 1-10 win over Ballaghadereen.

Castlebar Mitchell's and Ballintubber must do it all again after they finished level after ET 1-12 apice.

While Corofin are deserved favorites Annaghdown are not too far behind. An upset is possible.

Wexford Hurling final is St. Martins v Naomh Eanna (Gorey), football final is Kilanerin v Shelmaliers, with Matty Forde still doing the business for Kilanerin.

Armagh Senior semi final results

Ballymacnab (1-9) v (0-9) Maghery Seán MacDiarmada
Crossmaglen Rangers (0-19) v (1-11) St Pat's Cullyhanna

2 results I predicted wrong.
Ballymacnab keep on winning and account for Maghery 2016 Armagh champions.
Cross keep on improving and getting better after a bad start and beat favourites Cullyhanna.

FInal verdict:
Cross are gaining momentum and have played some outstanding football lately.
This could spell danger for Ballymacnab. Cross to do enough.

Replying To The_Fridge:  "Love the club championship in Tyrone. Straight knock out, its dog eat dog. Very competitive, I think it was 7 different teams won it in 7 years from 2010 to 2016. Omagh St Endas won it last year. I think the last team to do back to back was Carrickmore back in 2004 or 2005.

Anyone from Errigal, Omagh, Dromore, Trillick, Coalisland, Clonoe, Killyclogher, Ardboe could win it. Pomeroy took everyone by surprise last year by getting to the semi finals so don't be surprised if a team does the same this year.

Just my opinion but I think the winners will be Errigal. Hungry after last years defeat final defeat and running away with the league. however they have a difficult games against arch rivils Carrickmore in the first round and the winners of Dromore vs Coalisland.

If not Errigal I think Killyclogher and Trillick will be there or there abouts.

Starts Friday night so there is a feast of football over the next two weekends. Couldn't beat it."
Yes, all the pundits get it wrong most years; most of the favourites, including the holders, knocked out this year again. I personally think the top Tyrone clubs play a better brand of football than the county; the attendances rival big county games. The only downside for Tyrone clubs is that it's difficult for any club to get some consecutive-year experience in the provincials or the AI; and you need that consecutive experience to win a provincial or AI. Going out newly-minted every year, euphoric after wining a difficult co c'ship, is no preparation at all for meeting clubs who are dominant within their counties and who in some cases see their own co c'ship as a good warm up for the provincials, as Cross used to and Crokes still do.

Caltra or Ballyboden St Enda's didn't need the back to back experience to win the club All Ireland out or St Thomas's in the Hurling.

Coolderry claimed the Offaly SHC title for the first time since 2015 last Sunday when beating the holders Kilcormac/Killoughey - 2-17 to 0-17. Goals and the performances of Brian Carroll and captain Kevin Connolly were the winning of the game.

The Offaly SFC final between Rhode and Ferbane is on Sunday. Rhode are going for 3 in a row while Ferbane are an up and coming team. They drew in the group stages so a close game is expected. I actually think Ferbane will beat the village. You can get a decent price on Ferbane.

Didn't two of Ferbane's county players suffer serious injuries in the semi final?

Can someone let me know what the story is with the Galway Senior Hurling Championship? Have a decent bet on St. Thomas to win it, are they in the semi finals or quarters? I know they topped their group with decent wins in the last few rounds. There seems to be a raft of Senior matches on this week up there, do Thomas have a bye?

St Thomas' and Gort are the too front runners to win it. The Galway Championship is too long....64 matches and that's only the group games! They have preliminary quater finals this weekend. St Thomas' are straight through to the 1/4 finals

Shane Nally and Jack Egan were injured in the semi final win over Clara. Shane is an Offaly footballer.
They will be a loss for Ferbane v Rhode in Sunday's County Final.
