C'mon Kilcoo and Armagh

Very interesting refereeing against Kilcoo, and I do mean "against"

Are you serious. I actually thought in that first half the ref really gave a lot to Kilcoo. That being said, I thought the best team won.
Kilcoo had too much pace for St Finbarrs over the whole match. I felt Kilcoo over played and nearly come unstuck as a result. Every time they stopped playing around the middle third and went direct with hard running, Kilcoo looked dangerous. I feel they could have won the game in normal tine by 4 points or so if they played differently. That set up could get them caught in the final.

With all of Kilcoo's games outside of Down having been televised, I've really enjoyed watching them play.
Their style when on the attack can be very difficult to deal with. They do it with real pace, direct running and support on the shoulder. They have the players with the pace to play this type of game.
They have their flaws too, but I'm expecting a very competitive final with Crokes. It would be great to see them get over the line.

Super win for Armagh. 5 points flattered the Dubs.

Armagh took some lovely scores. Gonna be a long year for Dessie.

Steelstown Town beating Na Gaeil in the intermediate semifinal as well yesterday, Northern football is on the up big time.

Armagh were excellent, we were rubbish. Deserved win for the Orange.

The Ulster Championship will be fascinating this year. Armagh back on form, Tyrone & Monaghan serving up a competitive contest in a storm, Antrim and Derry improving. Ulster is brilliant, ugly, rough with some great football thrown in.

Kilcoo best team to come out of ulster.

Would love them to win this final, would really bring back a serious buzz for down football. Would also love a few more of them men on the county panel but understand people have other life commitments and club comes first. No one catching them any time soon yes they have a few "experienced men on the panel but they have more young guns with fresh legs raring to get on the starting 15. These are now their glory years and are reaping the rewards for all they've done at underage level
