Good to see a Sligo team in the Club final. I don't think they will win it. A pitch along the Atlantic in December isn't very inviting for supporter's so it will only be die hard club fans that will travel and not much support from the other clubs. It will probably be a very low scoring game but it's a huge ask to beat a Galway team over there. I wish them well

Great to see Niall Mitchell shoot down Dessie Dolans approach to join the senior footballers and to stick with the hurlers. He's a very talented footballer but twice as talented a hurler as he's widely known as across the country. As he said himself, he wouldn't guarantee that he'd start with the footballers but is pretty much a regular on the starting 15 for the hurlers. We are one of the better dual counties in the country and there's many players across the county that could play both codes. Any other news regarding the panel for the upcoming year? We made significant progress last year and hopefully we can again this year in Division 1 and Liam Mccarthy, the exposure to top level hurling is vital.

Id be hoping one semifinal saturday evening and the other sunday at 1pm. WC final is 3pm so should give those looking to get to Qatar plenty of time!

Probably most likely I'd say, maybe Ballyhale and Ballygunner (jumping the gun I know) under lights in Thurles on the Saturday, other semi on the Sunday at 1 somewhere like Parnell Park.

The CCCC has set out the schedule for next year's Sam Maguire Cup last 16 group stages. The four provincial winners and four runners-up will have home advantage in the opening round against the third and fourth ranked teams based on their league finishes respectively. In the second round, the provincial victors, who are top seeds, travel to the lowest ranked team and the runners-up head to the third ranked side. In the final round to be played at neutral venues, the provincial winners face the provincial runners-up and the No3 seeds take on the No4 seeds. opening rounds will take place on the weekend of May 20/21. Munster Champions to be in group with Connaught Runner up. And vice versa. Ulster Champions to be in group with Leinster Runner up. And Vice versa. Munster / Connaught Finals played weekend of May 6 / 7 Leinster / Ulster Finals played weekend of May 13/14. Interesting

Late County Finals - Split Season - 1 Like(s)
"Just from my experience of the last few years, I agree with it, to be honest with you. This year is a juncture, not the full fix. It will be a calendar year next year. That will be the ideal scenario. I just found over the last few years, you win your provincial and it is a long slog through December, Christmas, January to play a semi-final at the beginning of February. It is mentally and physically draining. You have lost all your momentum." Words of All-Ireland club winner.

Cavan or Longford is roughly half way between Slaughtneil and St Toms. Would this be a decent venue for this game? Personally dont like Parnell so would hope it isnt there. Never been to Pearse Park but Breffni Park in Cavan is a great spot. But you'd imagine it will be in Parnell. Will be a great game I think. Slaughtneil havent played football in awhile so full commitment to hurling.

And me. I've commented on it the past. I find there's a bit of arrogance about it from some of the big ball fans on here.

Whoever wins the game between Ballygunner and Ballyea the AI semi in Thurles makes sense. What about Clones for the other semi? Great ground!

Honest to god what are the GAA at? I know they don't give much of a **** about counties like ourselves but no fixtures published with c2 months to go is a complete joke. Some of us want to book flights to Ruislip!
