Kerry 1-16 Leitrim 1-9
Meath 2-19 Kilkenny 2-8


Better 2nd half from Meath after a sluggish 1st half. Decent effort by Leitrim when you take in account they were missing a number of starters today.

Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

Defeated by just 11 points, the open top bus for John Street is being prepared as we speak!

Kilkenny entered into the Britain part of the competition, which they won.  Ulster has decided this competition is beneath them and do not participate.  Therefore the four semi-final teams are the winners of the Connacht, Leinster, Munster and Britain championships.  The semi-final draws were Munster v Connacht and Leinster v Britain, resulting in Kerry (Munster) beating Leitrim (Connacht) and Meath (Leinster) beating Kilkenny (Britain). 

The final is Kerry v Meath which may be played as part of a double header with the minor quarter final between Kerry and Louth on Aug 5?  Nothing decided yet on that possibility.

Junior is beneath a lot more than just Ulster teams. It's a competition that should not exist in its current form and the fact that it does is sheer neglect by the GAA. Fluting about with minor and U21 was nonsense when they didn't even try to address the failures of that new approach by revamping junior. Kerry to win a bit of tin handy enough in the final.

Restoring the U21 football championship and reversing the super 8 would be too much of a sensible move for the GAA HQ to make.

Plenty. Why would you reverse the super 8 before it's had a chance? Why would abolish the junior? What's wrong with going U17 and U20?

Do we not know what a round robin system is?

What you're saying is akin to saying sure you've not even tasted the rat poison, why not give it a chance?

The Zu guide to keeping Dublin on top - agree with everything Duffy proposes.

Syferus, we all appreciate you can't think things through very well but Duffy's hands were tied by the feedback from the GAA membership. I, Duffy, nor anyone else believe the super 8 is the solution to our problems but it is an attempt at addressing some of the issues within the straightjacket of keeping the provincial championships and not taking up more time from clubs. It will produce dead rubbers but also winner takes all games and more quality games. Those of us with a drop of sense will give it a chance and see where it goes because what we have isn't good enough.

The Kerry Junior team is made up only of players who are not playing senior at club level, and it has provided an additional development pathway with several players such as Tadhg Morley and Anthony Maher graduating to the senior panel.
