Very quiet here...with the game for the ages this Sun.

PP has the Mullinalaghta boys 4/1on with Mostrim a solid 5/2. No odds on a draw!!

A good start is needed by us to have any hope..........but Mullinalaghta have the experience and the players to win this without too much bother. Every one of their players have drawers full of medals. If you take out the hurling I don't think there's anything with our lads........maybe a 'B' underage medal of some sort....

"Slasher9" on HoganStand has tipped us for the win, so obviously we're doomed.

The nerves are killing me.

Slasher9 is a dark agent for us.

No injury worries in our camp as far as I know.

I see there is a game in Pearse Park on Sat plus the junior final as a 'warm up' to the main event.
Pitch could be a cabbage patch by 3pm.

Could the last few minutes be played in the dark on Sunday?

With 10k in the fund gout could be a risk

LOL.

As far as I know our lads have been off the sauce since midnight on Tuesday.

The Mullinalaghta lads are all pioneers.

Congrats to Mullinalaghta. Best team won and, perhaps, should have won by more.

Our big guns didn't fire at all.

The main thing is to learn from the experience. Next year will be around soon enough.

Our first recent final in 2014 against Killoe was lost through bad decisions in the first half. We learnt.

Somewhat puzzled how someone can be "at" somewhere that they received a two-year ban from entering only two days ago. I can only assume her broadband must be good.

That last statement may be no longer operative.
