Replying To KY4SAM2015:  "Mayo and Galway have both been as bad as each other over the years in Croke Park, just leave it at that."
Mayo win more games in Croke Park than we loose...Galway won their first championship game in Croker last year in 18 years so I don't know how you manage to see the similarity's...

Did Galway beat ye last year in Croke Park?

Finals are where we have a problem. GAA will be delighted Mayo made the final...are Kerry sending the minibus yo with their fans ? ;)

Trump, how many Corofin players do you think Kevin Walsh will have in his 15 this championship? If you picked the team how many Corofin players would you start? Are some Corofin players not getting a chance more from style of play rather than ability? Interesting interview with Gary Sice on the GAA hour last week where I thought he was a bit too diplomatic about Corofin v county.

SOrry if this has been asked before but- if corofin played in the National Football League what division would they be in or be comfortable in?

Will the full support structures of a county team behind them, I reckon mid-lower division 2.

The same was discussed on the GAA Hour and they said upper Division 3, so maybe somewhere from 13th-18th in terms of rankings.

It's important too to remember that a lot of teams experiment and lose players to clubs during the league, have player turnover from previous seasons, etc. whereas Corofin have been playing consistently as a team for years.

Surely there's at least 3 good players from a two All Ireland in a row team and maybe two more guys that are at least good off the bench.

If Corofin played in the League of Ireland, which 4 players would they cull from the starting 15 to make it a starting 11?
