Best team won although CPN will regret their caution. Hard to pick a MoM although Dabs (as always), Rooney, Ryan J and Laverty strong, as were McMahon, Murdoch, McCormack John Boyle.
O'Hare got most things right but made some strange/brave calls towards the end. So much so that Genie Brannigan gave him a mouthful after the final whistle earning himself a straight red. O'Hare certainly didn't deserve the verbal abuse from a fellow referee; a Kilcoo man who obviously didn't read the script about respecting referees!
Credit to the County board for a really well organised weekend and adh mór to Teconnaught, Saval and Kilcoo in Ulster.

Global warming caused by human behaviour is a con job, according to the DUP Environment Minister Sammy Wilson in 2009. And he stood by his words in 2020.

It's a bit of a worry alright to be managerless at this stage but things will work out.
One thought  I have is that Jim McGuinness hasn't covered himself in too much glory from this affair.
Like most people on this board I was absolutely amazed that the group charged with appointing the manager managed to keep it under wraps for so long. Both they and the McGuinness Laverty Clarke ticket successfully kept Schtum right up until the County final weekend when everyone I spoke to had heard the names in the frames. When the Irish News ran the story a few days later we were all upbeat so if it's true that McGuinness walked because the story was out, he confirmed that he really is unbelievably thin skinned.Kevin Cassidy had a point.
So while he was a successful coach he's a prickly character and if he can't handle this issue God knows what he would have been like if he had  a real crisis to deal with.

The clubs that voted to shaft Tally were a bit like the DUP members who got rid of Arlene I.e. no plan B.
Remember Down lost more games in 2016 and 2017 than any other county and were relegated to Division 3 in 2018.
Tally steadied the ship without setting the world alight and paid the price for a shambolic performance against Donegal.  However starting from scratch when one club is consistently dominating is never a good tactic and while the plan seems to have been to get Kilcoo become part of the solution, rather than the problem, it has seemingly backfired.
We need to take stock and remember that a strong senior team requires all shoulders to the wheel

Three good finals for different reasons.
The Junior was an excellent game with the standard high for Junior football.  Delighted for the Fin but Dundrum gave it a great rattle, Rogers, Venney and McGrattan did well.
Darragh will be devastated after taking their eye off the ball in the last few minutes; fair play to James Colgan who stopped the ball going over from Marcus Miskelly's free, ball went down the field and Conor Doyle reduced it to 5. The two goals reminded us what passion can do in Gaelic football.
As for the Magpies; what can you say? Every man played his part and best of luck in Ulster.
The County board deserve credit for hosting an impressive weekend, the three referees were excellent and Down GAA TV brings another dimension
