Talking about killoe and the midfield… what about that paddy thompson lad.. heard he played very well for the intermediates… id imagine he would be a great addition at this stage.

3 of the 4 quarter finals were tight and could have went any way. Killoe just done enough to get part Abbey. Smyth was running the show until Liam Hughes came on and handled him well. Killoe need to keep him fit. Mullinalaghta didn't need to get out of second gear against Carrickedmond, they seemed happy enough just to have avoided the relegation battles. Dromard snatched defeat from certain victory in a game that may stand to Mostrim. They might have enough in the tank for Colmcille once they keep everyone injury free. Colmcille had enough done to see off Granard who gave themselves just too much to do. The comeback was just too late even though Gallagher nearly dragged them level. I can see Mostrim causing an upset against Colmcille in what will be the tighter game of 2. Killoe are running on empty and lacking their normal confidence for some reason and I cant see them giving any trouble to Mullinalaghta who are starting to find some form from their 3 in a row team.

Replying To Ward30:  "I don't know what you were watching but Mullinlagtha put in a professional performance and Killoe should be very wary. Mickey Graham/Ciarán Fox will have a plan for Mimmnagh who is arguably Killoes best player."
i was watching the match where mullinlaghta were at about less then a 50% conversion rate of there chances against very poor opposition. mullinlaghta need to be taking every chance they can get if they are to have a hope against killoe. i cant believe all the predictions here fancying mullinalaghta. they lack pace and killoe are full of running.

A team that won a Leinster not that long ago deserves respect. I'm not saying they'll beat Killoe all I'm saying is Killoe will need to up their game considerably to beat Mullinlagtha.

When is the Clonguish/FM Gales match on. Hard to know how it will go.
Clonguish lead by 5 in extra time and lost.
All must not be well in the Clonguish camp.
The Gales on the other hand only need to win one match to survive. Could the decider be it.

From what I heard Clonguish were cruising and for some reason that the ref only knows about, he reduced Clonguish to 14 players. Slashers scored a goal straight after and had a very strong wind to reel them in. Still expect Clonguish to win but it won't be easy with it been a local derby.

yes agree, think drumlish destined for the drop here but as said before when it comes to relegation nothing will shock me.

the main events calling it now - Killoe by 4-5 points, colmcille by 3-4 to set up a unique final pair

Replying To B&G:  "After a gap of 20 years Slashers are now the kingpins of Longford hurling. Hurling in the county needed this win. Tones were enjoying a monopoly of success in recent years."
3 different winners in the last 3 seasons (even though there's just 3 Senior clubs). Slashers dominant at underage so could drive on from here now?

Replying To B&G:  "Any word on the hurling and football team managers. No information on potential candidates. On the football side they did state that they were in no hurry to make an appointment which means that county championship will be finished before an appointment is made.
At least they came out with some sort of a timeframe.
No such communication or clarification on a hurling appointment.
Do we assume that any potential appointments will come from within the county.
In football we done well to attain our D3 status we will need to build on this.
While in hurling we are in the bottom rung of ladder (D3B & Lory Meagher Cup). This will be a crucial appointment if we are to return to Div 3A & Nicky Rackard cup."
Adrian Moran from Westmeath ratified as new hurling manager.
