Replying To pjbigballfan:  "Absolutely just thinking of pitches that might be playable outside of Tuam Stadium you'd imagine that's too far for An Ceathra Rua to travel in fairness.


Annaghdown
Monivea
Duggan Park
Loughgeorge x2
New Claregalway pitch
Pierse for 1 off game.
Moycullen

There's more I'm sure they're just the ones we know hold up well , don't think they'll all be in use this weekend.
Why not give portion of gate to club for facilitating ?"
Clonbur? Must be in good condition after having an fbd match on it.

Replying To Theislander04:  "Also I heard that this years under 21/ is starting in February don't know if this is true or not"
Yes it is starting round mid to end Feb. Really shows that grade how much the board respects it. Teams given less than 5
weeks to prepare and can't even train regularly due to state of pitches at present. The competition is moved around randomly to suit other schedules. Won't be encouraging too many lads to keep involved in GAA once they go beyond this age.

Hard 2 see under 20 starting in Feb as there are a good few on Galway senior squad and they have 3 league matches in Feb and FBD final to be played and 3 league matches in march hard see when the clubs with players on Galway senior panel could get time 2 play ,,it's pure madness the amount of matches being played in Jan Feb and march and sigerson matches also and virtually nothing for rest of year and sad thing is it won't change that would involve brains and sadly not many exist in the whole fixture

Strangely generalised comment.

B final set for Pierse Stadium next Saturday at 2.30

Expect it will be a tight affair, An Ceathra Rua are a big physical team , but Glen have battled to get to final and played a lot of games. Glenamaddy if they play to potential to win by a few points.

Pearse Stuadium lads. Named after Paraic Mac Piarais (Patrick Pearse). One of the founding members of the Republic. Can we all just spell his name correctly.....it's the least he deserves.

Good win for Glan / Glinsk yesterday by 3 points.
An Ceathru Rua were indeed a powerful team with a very strong and mobile midfield and solid spine from centre back up.
G/G to my eye might have won by a few more , we missed a few kickable chances esp in the second half.
Big pitch suited us , and good movement meant kick out strategy worked very well even against a bigger midfield.
We were tenacious again and kept going throughout even as the opposition started coming back at us. Felt the ref favoured the defences on both sides with minimal enough contact allowed , few dubious decisions to frustrate both sets of fans but it added to the excitement/tension I suppose. Glan subs made a big difference and pushed things on just when needed.
Well done to all involved, players management and supporters.


A big boost for the club heading in to the new season.
