Slieve Bloom beat Clonad tonight. Looked average enough in the first half and trailed by six at the break, but Clonad imploded a bit in the second half and SB won by three. Conroy blew hot and cold - scored some nice points, but also some bad misses. Can't see them winning this championship. R/E must surely make amends for last year. Amazed they lost the 1B league final.

I assume that if R/E win the Div 1A final, then Portlaoise won't be relegated, despite the pasting they got off Castletown?

Celtic Challenge finals being shown live

Laois on later this afternoon

Laois beat Antrim in their final - was it the Division 4 final? Out of five divisions? With Derry winning the one above us?!

Oh dear. Back to the second tier next year now, I presume?

Portlaoise isn't.
westmeath played carlow in Netwatch park


Carlow destroyed Westmeath in the Division 2A final in O'Moore Park, Portlaoise, earlier this year. End of March/ start of April?

I'd say they won't be 1B this time next year.

Got to remember, Laois beat Carlow last year in the championship - and with King having been sent off early on, too. But, on Sunday, Carlow were way, way better. The Laois performances in this year's championship have far back on last year, and some of the 'tactics' baffling, but we do have the raw materials to compete in the McDonagh Cup. However, lack of size, as I said before, is a serious problem that was very noticeable on Sunday. The way the game is gone, it seems there's little enough point developing a load of skilful little lads.

In nearly every position the Dublin player was way bigger than his Laois counterpart.

Yes, our form has definitely dipped - nose-dived, even - and it's hard to see wins against either Antrim or Carlow. At the start of the competition, you'd have said these would be the two hardest games - and they've just got harder, as they say.
But we live in hope.

Jesus, the Carlow/ Antrim game looked saucy enough. Both sides will be down a good few between suspensions and injuries over the coming weeks, so maybe all is not lost. However, we're obviously in the same boat, and with a shallow panel, to boot. You really have to wonder about all these high-stakes matches in quick succession.

Exactly. And better teams on paper don't reach their potential. It's all about the attitude brought by the players.
