A deeply frustrating day all round.

Galer made a solid point. I feel we had no presence at CHF, especially to offer ball winning and link up options. A Niblock for example. From an attacking perspective we often go down a right wing, or a left wing, but no outlet in the crucial middle lane where you want to be playing your football.

Those conditions today suited Wicklow more and though we were fitter and faster they cleaned us out in the middle third. Niall Mc Keever missed the game due to a hamstring recurrence at training and was badly missed. Maybe Sean Mc Veigh might have offered us a bit of physical presence in there. Even for 40 minutes. That day would have suited him. Again just my opinion.

London will have their tails up now. They beat Wicklow fairly easily last week and after today's result certainly won't fear us. So we need to get our heads right for that match which has turned into a really important game for us now.

Didnít get to the match today due to the weather but just unfortunate we couldnít have closed the game off. No win but no defeat either.  Get ready for the next one

A draw at home against Wicklow is a poor result.  No two ways about it.

Well done to Peter Healy who picked up a Sigerson winners medal today with UCD. Commiserations to Owen Gallagher who lined out at No 11 for Galway University who lost out to St Mary's  in last years final and today by one point.

Have you read the comments? Start at Bannsideís.

Fcuk it, Iíll explain. Bannside referred to Owen Gallagher (Galway Uni) being on the losing finalists team this year as well as being on the losing finalists team last year against St Maryís.

Referee stated that St Maryís beat UCD in the final (obv still last year), not Galway.

Unless Gallagher was at UCD last year & Galway this year.
