Twice now Moycullen have rode their luck against teams they were supposed to hammer and twice they've coasted past teams in MM & Westport in what were supposed to be close games.

Moycullen 1/16 to beat Tourlestrane.

Westport match probably said more about them and apparently had a stag party this weekend before. Only seen the highlights of the Mountbellew Moylough match and in a 9 point win two of the 3 goals was total gifts from a wandering goalkeeper.

Interesting Pearse Stadium chosen over Tuam for the final.

No surprise, Moycullen are far more familiar with Pearse Stadium than Tuam in terms of matches played in each venue, it was highlighted in the run up to the Strokestown match by GBFM on a preview piece.

I think it's the Connacht GAA that pick venues. Picking Pearses Stadium adds 20+ miles on the trip for Tourlestrane.
Maybe it's different at senior level but certainly at junior and intermediate the club used to get the choice of which county designated venue they want to use. Our club was in a Connacht final some years back and had the choice of Tuam, Pearse or Duggan Park in Ballinasloe.

I have no idea how Tourlestrane and Moycullen will match up. Tourlestrane did very well to get out of Pairc Sean given the position at half-time. Tourlestrane in the Sligo Championship won every game in a close manner even ones they were expected to win well. They have shown remarkable calmness in the face of late deficits. It's exciting to see how they do against opposition of this calibre. As a Sligoman, it's impossible to doubt Tourlestrane. They get written off all the time and never waiver. I will be surprised if Tourlestrane doesn't put it up to Moycullen. Looking forward to it.

Obviously disappointed with my own clubs performance against Galway opposition in the intermediate. We had 2 bad injuries going into it in Jack Davitt who scored the 2 goals against Mayo in the u20 final and there is simply a big dropoff from our starting 15 to the subs to counter that loss. Also losing our full back and then making way too many positional switches just killed any of the flow we had running into it. The gap between our championship finishing and the Connacht games I don't think helped ourselves or Tourlestrane, 5 weeks is a long time with others playing finals after and then a knockout game before. Marys looked alot sharper 1st half but Tourlestrane found their legs 2nd half and snuffed them out.

Dominics 1-12 Aughnasheelin 0-5.
Doms play Dunmore next weekend at a Roscommon venue.

Kiltoom the venue and on next Saturday which doesn't seem very fair to Dominics. Sensible option was surely Hyde Park on the 11th of December?

The senior final between Moycullen and Tourlestrane next Sunday will now start at 12:45pm because it will be be on TG4 i believe

Is it true that the Ronans/Clifden Junior Final is on in the Hyde at the same time as Doms/Dunmore is on in Kiltoom less than 25km away?

Yes Junior and intermediate finals are on Saturday at the same time in different venues which makes little sense.

Well done Tooreen Hurlers on winning yet another Connacht title.  0-22 to 1-15 winners against Killimor of Galway.

Could have been played different days or different weekends. All-Ireland semi finals aren't on until January.

Galway champions in front at half time in the two Connacht finals. A bit daft both finals are on the same day at the same time in different venues but John Prenty and Co know best.

Junior

St Ronans 0-4 Clifden 1-9

Intermediate

St Dominics 0-8 Dunmore 1-6

Double for Galway.


Results

St Ronans 0-10 Clifden 1-16
St Dominics 1-13 Dunmore 1-16

Half time in a sunny Salthill with a light wind. Moycullen 0-4 Tourlestrane 0-3. Only points from play in that half was the 3 from the Sligo champions.

Congrats to Moycullen senior Connacht champions. Stepped it up 2nd half especially Paul Kelly and Peter Cooke 0-13 to 0-6 winners.
