Replying To Yellaman:  "I thought it was a one game ban, which would make him available for next week.
But who would he replace ??

I'm being a tad fussy here, but why would a suspended player be listed on the starting team in the match-day programme ??"
He might not make the starting 15 after last weekend but what an impact sub to be able to bring on if he is cleared to play.

For the group games after nearly all shels scores they are roaring and shouting up in opponents faces not nice to see, one player sent off for throwing a ball at a castletown official
An a Shels player walking straight down on one of the Castletown subs bodies near end of match, he prob wont get punished but it was on camera so why shouldnt he be punished shocking out of him

Replying To beano:  "One thing I did notice, and it was bad considering the current climate, was how often the Shels support collectively booed the referee over a couple of decisions. They also made noise over a couple of Castletown frees. O'Gara must have felt at home as it was just like the Hill."
Beano I can understand your prejudice here, but it certainly wasn't all one way. The Hill 16-esque cheering of Shels missed chances ( mainly frees) from Castletown supporters in the second half was disgusting.
I attended the game with an open mind and I was delighted to witness a decent game of football. Castletown were brilliant on the day, after a dodgy first quarter, and thoroughly deserved the win, but that kind of behaviour/attitude from the supporters was not nice.

Really hope I'm wrong but think it's a tough task for Castletown on Sunday, Portarlingtion are 3 in a row winners in Laois and gave Kilmacud there toughest test in Leinster last year.

Replying To TerribleFootwork:  "County Chairman was saying earlier in the year that provincials shouldn't start till November as dual counties are under pressure to get all the games completed, was only 1 free weekend in Wexford since the weekend of June."
2 but your point is still right. If they are clinging to preserving the ethos of the GAA they should do more to accommodate dual clubs as these are the guys on the ground who are promoting and playing both hurling and football.

Portarlington will feel they are in with a decent enough shout of winning Leinster. As other Laois clubs already have done, well Portlaoise did and they have won Leinster joint most ever . 2 other Laois clubs have reached the final, something No Wexford club has even done.
I'm really hoping Castletown can beat them but it is a big ask, with or without an extra week.

To be fair the official in question is a member of the coaching officer and threw a ball on to waste time. He was getting involved when he didnt need to be and then rolled around on the ground after the ball hit him which was embarrassing. As a person in his role he should be doing better. Also the player shouldnt be throwing the ball at him either.

Not sure what you are referring to, I was at the game as a neutral and have no vested interest in either team and was close to what happened with the wexford coaching officer, I'm not referring to another incident. Thought ball throwing was stupid by Shels player but the roll around on the ground was completely embarrassing, even more so when you know his role within the county.

The fourth official? I noticed he hauled the Castletown lads for having 4 subs warming up at the one time but then when it came down to it didn't do anything about the Castletown official who deliberately threw in the ball as a delaying tactic. In the pervious game he was onto the Buffers Alley lads to step back into their box when the had barley stepped a foot outside. Rules are rules but some officials use common sense and would politely tell the lads to not do it again, then others just want to make a big deal of it and put on a show, until the hard calls have to be made and then they go quiet.

Replying To Yellaman:  "I couldn't understand why only the Shels player was booked in that incident. The coaching officer was equally in the wrong imo.

The game itself was a strange one. Shels looked really good early on, but when the pressure was applied on them, for the first time this year, they had no answer. Their Dub import certainly didnt help their cause, numerous second half attacks broke down around him."
To be fair to O'Gara when he got the ball inside the 20M there was about 4 CT players on him but he needed to give it back out but that wasn't happening. They would have been better to play for Mark scores, as under a high ball he is very good.
It reminded me of the 2012 AI Final and the job that Donegal did on Mayo. It was the type of day that things just didn't go right for one team and right for the others. Going into the second half they should known they needed those scores and they had the chances (frees in particular) but they didn't go over. CT were huge in the second half - Carty's dive to block a pass that could have resulted in a goal typified what they brough to the game.

Good question!

New York is an obvious one anyway, since we don't play in Connacht, and New York don't play in the back-door qualifiers.

However, I do remember us playing London in the qualifiers in Ruislip sometime around 2010 or 2011. So there are four Irish counties we haven't played. And we've played everybody in Leinster at some stage (including Kilkenny multiple times, back in the early days), so those four must be from the other provinces.

I don't want to give away too much right now, so that others can try work it out too, but I reckon there's one county in Ulster we've never played in the championship, and two others in Connacht. Am I on the right track?

I can't think who the other one is. Unless it's a trick question and the answer is Wexford, because we've never played ourselves???!!!!
