McKenna isn't the worse referee out there either so there must have been something in the sending offs.

Kevin Johnson (Derry) is a junior doctor and has played very little recently.

Is the GAA not a middle class game nowadays anyway? Sure most of those Dublin lads went to private schools. There are elements in the GAA not an asses roar of the rugby click for snobbery.

The player profiles in the Kildare county final yesterday was interesting enough. Celbridge's squad was extremely white collar whereas Moorefield (traditionally Newbridge's working class club) had quite a few tradesmen and members of the defence forces on their panel. They also had a lot more heart but it is hard to know if the 2 are linked.

A seagull flew overhead in Conleths park today, I've never seen them so far inland before.

Rhode will win Leinster.  :o

If they make the final they woulf have to be fancied. Just have to beat Portlaoise, Moorefield and more than likely Vincents/Ballymun to get there.

The standard at club level is very poor (in comparison to Kildare football which we all know is not fantastic) from the few games I've seen this year, it will take a lot of effort and some time to get Offaly back up to the level they should be at.

There are less small farmers around these days and the big ones would be more likely to be playing rugby if they have the time to be playing sports at all. Might be a bit different out west.

Was he ever a member? If so I can't imagine he was popular considering he went against them when taking Lucozade money at the time the GPA had their deal with Club Energise. Another example of his greed.

Ballymore win the Kildare JFC

You would imagine they should have a good chance at getting a Leinster.
Erin Rovers being effectively the 17th ranked team in Offaly should be strong but they wouldn't be anywhere near the level of Bracknagh (big favourite in the Senior B final) who were the Offaly champions last year and failed to take Leinster.
Don't know how strong Man O'War(great name) are.

Kerry will eventually, Mayo maybe might get one more chance, everyone else have no hope.

Not much talk on here today . . . I thought yesterdays game was far and away a better match than the Hurling Final!

I agree that the football was a better game but the Hurling didn't leave the majority of the GAA public depressed and empty at the result of it.

McCarthy MOTM. More than justified.

Sporting a nice shiner too.

Yep that's right. A midfielder who got so cleaned out on his own kickouts that his keeper never went long the entire second half.

McCarthy was good today. But if kicking two points is what it takes to win this award, then measure everyone who does it equally.

McCarthy was wing back for most of the first half, from when McCaffrey went off.

He was completely anonymous in the first half so it wasn't clear where he ws playing. At times it looked like he was marking AOS but AOS dropped deep and was very influential. They were 2 fantastic points he kicked though.

How have the Sunday game not mentioned the pages eye gouging incident before half time. Surely a straight red.

Eye gouge? O'Gara's have was over his mouth, not his eyes.
It still looks a gouge to me, even if sligthly below the eye it is still a red for me, no need to have his hand anywhere near boyles face. Mayo should have kicked up a bigger fuss, they are usually good at highlighting these things.

He will miss out on u20s if he plays for the seniors.

the focus will probably be on vaughan as the pivitol moment but I thought mccaffrey's injury was big. He had started really well and Dublin seemed a bit clueless for 10 or 15 mins after he went off. It really upset their game plan

Replacing him with Flynn didn't work well and they lost their shape, Eric Lowndes would have been a more like for like replacement but I'm not sure if he was even on the bench.

I wondered about taking mcloughlin and moran off too. were they just tired or injured ?

Moran looked wrecked, hit a tired looking wide a couple of minutes before going off. Taking McLoughlin off looked a bad decision, he was still looking fresh and playing brilliantly.
