Replying To BaldyBadger:  "Nemo Rangers are actually walking this match. Dr Crokes would've been a far more difficult game for them. Would it not make sense if the club champs were run around the same time as the county champ. Perhaps some of the Kerry lads may have thoughts on this? That Stacks team were knocked out of county champ a while ago and would not be prepared to the level they would have been otherwise."
I think it would be very difficult to have the 2 run at the same time. It would have been Crokes representing Kerry under the previous rules, but I think this system now gives more precedence to the club championship.
Tough on Stacks for sure, not knowing for sure if they'd be playing or not. Can't be ideal for preparation.

You're probably right. Just a shame as that should have been a tight game (Kerry v cork). Nemo are probably the one team in Cork that come out of the county expecting to win a munster and challenge for all Ireland's, too club that they are. Corofin still the team to beat but there are a couple of teams out there that will give them a game.
Nemo will have a tougher final now. Clonmel are a decent outfit.

Would it be possible to split this Topic in to two? Football Club Championships and Hurling Club Championships. I'm only interested in the Hurling Championship, but I have to scroll through a lot of football comments to follow the hurling comments. I'm sure it's the same for people who are only interested in football.

Replying To carlovia:  "Great game and well done to st Mullins.

James Doyle brilliant last 2 points were as good as any scores you will see.

Last point he flicked it on the hurl over the defender and then caught it so looked all right to me.

But hard luck to Rathdowney."
The 2nd catch was very quick but 3 times in the hand alright

Great to see Tooreen of Mayo pick up their 2nd Connacht HURLING title yesterday v Kinvara. Well done lads. What a shock story if they could now go on and win the All Ireland...unlikely but they can dream for now.

So Ulster Club Hurling Championships have been decided for this year with Slaughtneil beating Dunloy last week in the Senior and the other two being decided yesterday. In the Junior Eoghan Rua Coleraine defeated Newry Shamrocks and St Endas (Antrim) defeated Eoghan Ruadh (Dungannon) on a penalty shoot out - with the final score after 5 penalties each being 1-0 to St Endas!!

In the football only the Junior Football Championship has reached its conclusion with Blackhill (Monaghan) defeating Buncrana on Saturday.

Borris-Ileigh take on might of Ballygunner in the MH Final in
Pairc Ui Rinn @ 2:00 next Sunday.
Ballygunner are favourites they are defending champions and have great experience in the munster championship. This will be their 4th final in 5 years. Borris-Ileigh are having a great year so far in winning the county final for the first time since 1986. They had a great battle in the semifinal beating Glen Rovers in a tight finish. Ballygunner had an impressive win over Sixmilebridge in the quarterfinal. They had another great win over Patrickswell in the semifinal. Pairc Ui Rinn is an ideal venue in that is compact ground which will help generate a better atmosphere.

Club football champ use to be very entertaining.

Now its 15 men behind ball when you don't have the ball for most teams.

Gaelic football is ruined.

This is happening underage, 2nd division level aswell

Ballygunner are favourites. If Paddy Stapleton who went off injured near the end of the game against Glen Rovers is unable to play he'll be a big loss for Borris-Ileigh on Sunday.

A bit of an exaggeration to say the least. I've been to some cracking club games this year from underage through to intermediate and senior.
Are there clubs employing primarily negative tactics? Without a doubt, but the vast majority of those aren't getting far.
The more successful teams are those playing more attacking football which can only be a good thing. It will hopefully force a shift in mindset.

I don't agree with you. Been to a few club championship games in Leinster and Donegal. One of the games was how you described but that apart generally been entertaining. Even the first replay between Gweedore and NC while not score heavy was an enthralling game to be at.

Good win for Borris-Ileigh in the MF in a tight game against Ballygunner on a scoreline of 1-12 to 1-11. Brendan Maher had a fine display to get MOTM.

Well done Corofin...a real footballing side. Pearce's very dirty. Hope Corofin go on and complete the 3 in a row.
