I think we'll have a Kilcavan v Annanough final. Surely Annanough can lift it a bit from scraping by Camross?

Good win for O’Dempseys the other night vs kilcavan. The club will be on a high after the seniors win last night.

Annanough scraped by Friday night in Crettyard. Poor game lots of mistakes. Park left that behind them too many chances missed up front. Annanough tired midway in 2nd half but grinded it out near the end. Would not be surprised to see O’Dempseys winning the final.
It's hardly possible to build anything if frustration, bitterness and a mood of helplessness prevail

Annanough to win this by 4 or 5.

They are a first team and first teams should have the edge with three or four top class lads that a second team won't have.

It would be their first championship in 40 years!

O’Dempseys have a good chance of winning the junior I think

I'll chance ODs for this. Too very similar teams with lads who are just starting out ana a lot of experienced heads too. Annanough have suffered a fade out in the second half of the matches that I have seen them whereas ODs seem to power up in second half. The boys in ODs will I presume be training at a serious level with their senior team and because of that I give them the nod

I fancied Kilcavan in the semi so I might as well oppose O'Dempseys again!
I think Annanough have a few stronger players. Donal Miller is playing well I hear and who'd begrudge him a well deserved county medal with his club? Scully, Rory Stapleton and young Horgan and McCaul are a bit better than anyone on the O'Dempseys team.

At least I got one prediction right!
Not the greatest game but Annanough won't mind. Job done.
The famine is over! Congrats to great club people like Donal Miller, Martin Stapleton and Willie Coleman.
Great chance of a run in Leinster too.

O'Dempseys junior A team will be good too. Could've been in the Final last year with any luck. Won't lose many to senior team.
I was nearly right! Fair play to Annanough. It's important not to get stuck in a lower grade for too long and they did the job at the first time of asking.
Didn't see any of their games this year except a few minutes on Saturday. Rory Stapleton must have come out with 4 or 5 balls in that few minutes alone. Great bit of stuff.
Well I could keep it above
But then it wouldn't be sky anymore

Now hesh   don't be praising a kinda half  cousin  (I think) of yours trying to get him junior  player of the year. !!!! In fairness he was my m.o.m.  His reading  of the danger is excellent  and he looks  really  fit still too
