And of course I should have mentioned Greene when it came to a good effort from the losing team last might. He was double or treble teamed every time he got on the ball.

Straightforward enough for BA in the final last night. Courtwood Emo not at the races from the very start. Very little more you can say. The big guns, Fitzpatrick, McEvoy, James McWey, Obular and the Rathdowney man Rafter all played very well. Only O'Flynn showed any resistance at all for CE.
There simply has to be the material there for a senior title for BA over the next few years.

Hope Jack is doing well. Not having a go at his replacements on the radio as it's a tough job that I wouldn't like to do, but you only know how good Jack is when he's not there.

No one more disappointed than Port themselves. They know they are better than that. Just one of those nights where nearly the whole starting 15 played well below their level. Crokes didn't even have to play particularly well.

A great character altogether who I wouldn't remember playing but came across many a time when he was refereeing. May he rest in peace.

Anyone at the 20s final? Good win for The Harps. Can they push on at senior next year?

Excellent from Port yesterday. Clinical. Smelt blood and showed no mercy. They also have Keith Bracken, Jake Foster and Daragh Slevin to come back into the running for the semi final.
They'll still be outsiders but I expect them to give this an almighty go.

Didn't see anywhere to post about this.
It's a terrible time of the year to be playing football but still some interesting games have taken place.
Looks like Ballyroan Abbey are going to be the team to beat. They play Portlaoise in one semi final.
In the other semi final Graigue will play whoever wins tonight between Mountmellick Parish and Courtwood/Emo.
The B seems to be quite competitive too with not too many walkovers (although they will probably increase in the next week or two). Ballylinan, Crettyard/Spink, Rosenallis, Clonaslee and Na Fianna Og all still in the running.

I believe it's far from a done deal yet - this mystery man in line for the BA job!

Surely no truth to zack tuohy rumour?
Junior final? Surely not?

A couple of managers gone. Pauric Clancy has left Ballyroan Abbey and Eddie Kinsella is finished in Courtwood. Both being replaced from within their own management teams I've heard.

I think Port are timing their season well and I expect them to win by 5 or 6 points.
I think O'Dempseys just might be a little bit over confident and I can't see why Courtwood can't win this. First game might be a cracker.

Good luck to him. He has a huge task on his hands.
No more than Sheehan with the footballers, there's a massive job before a ball is struck trying to get the best possible panel to commit.

Graigue and Josephs coming up short yet again. We really shouldn't be surprised. Clubs with far less numbers and resources seem to have more fight in the belly when the chips are down.
Port will hardly beat Portlaoise as easily as last year's county final the way both are playing? Still, it's Port's to loose.
The other semi should be close. Nice to see either of them in the final. If you'd offered both of them the scenario they are in this morning at the start of the year, they'd have jumped at it.
