Was looking at this article. No one from Dublin with all it's wealth of young talent feels there is a need to try their hand at the Aussie game?

Read it again.James Madden from Ballyboden signed for Brisbane.

One! Feck sake Leitrim even heric ave one lad doing trials!

Over the years Kevin Devine, Sean McGuinness, Declan O'Mahony, Karl Dias, Brian and David Stynes have played Aussie Rules.Ciaran Kilkenny played for a couple months but was homesick. Jack McCaffrey was over for a trial but wasn't interested in pursing a career in Oz. Eric Lowndes, Kevin Nolan, Cian O'Sullivan, James McCarthy, Cormac Costello, Gavin Burke, Shane Carthy and Niall Scully would had trials at various stages.

From your list and the list in the Article, it looks like Aussie Rule option has faded as a decent option for the young Dublin footballer in comparison to being a professional sportsman in their home town?

Right, I will bite. Which Dublin players are professional? You know, make their living by playing for Dublin

Starting to have a bit of positivity about Armagh again and i am definitely looking forward to division 2 football. It's good to see a few of the players return to the panel and with the two O'Neills also developing well it could be an interesting campaign.

In saying all that, it's a very tough league and i think everyone in Armagh would be happy to have remained in it at the end of the fixtures.

Agreed. 6th place will do. Anything above that is a bonus

Nice to see Grugan in there

Say Dublin was split in two. What would happen then when either Dublin north or Dublin south win the next 6 All Irelandís between them

6
A type of transfer system? Letís say that happens and loads of these Dublin club players turn out for other counties. Wouldnít that just create a problem in said counties where their own players canít get a game?

Surprised there is no mention of it, but Gweedores third gl was not a penalty, big call by the ref that had a big bearing on the game. It was a fair side to side hit

Totally agree. It really pisses me off when refs blow up this sort of challenge. Ffs there has to be some physicality in the game and this was a perfectly timed shoulder.
Watch it again. Stone wall penalty. Went through the back of him.

I have watched it again, side to side, perfect shoulder and he dislodges the ball. It's the type of challenge which is more often than not blown up but it shouldn't be.

That was my take on it

Disagree. Can see why it was given during the game but I didnít think it was a penalty. A hard shoulder but fair.

The lack of pace in the Cross team was really exposed yesterday, as were the lightweight nature of the forwards. Clarke being back would mark a big upgrade, but you never know if he'll stick around or not.

I'll give them their dues though, they are mentally very tough and you would never bet against them being out of it, even with 14 men. Had they got a goal and brought the gap down to 3-4...who knows how GD would have reacted.

Having said that they just don't seem to have the ability of previous years...if you take the 2 x O'Neills and AK outta the current Cross team and you have a decent, but not great, side.

Hear a lot of folks talk about the youth in the Cross side needing time to mature, but did GD not have around 9 or 10 u21s playing?

Gweedore won the under 21's (either last year of this year) as well as having plenty of experience in their ranks. Cross were lacking in experience

😳😳 how can you say a team featuring James Morgan, AK, TK, Paul Hughes, Johnny Hanratty & Kyle Carragher is lacking in experience. All of them have played for Armagh, won county championships plus Ulster Club titles. Add to this David McKenna and the 2 OíNeill lads (albeit young but plenty of big game exposure). Cross were beat fair and square on the day.....

Who said they werenít beaten fair and square?

Thatís a nice jersey. Along with the Monaghan one itís a real tidy jersey. Look forward to seeing the new Armagh jersey, theyíll probably model it on the Dublin design  ::)

Hope the Armagh one is that Galway one but in orange

Semi Finals are a double header in Omagh on Sunday 18th

Eoghan Rua (Doire) v Scotstown (MuineachŠn) 1.30pm
Crossmaglen (Ard Mhacha) v Gaoth Dobhair (Dķn na nGall) 3.30pm
Crossmaglen (Ard Mhacha) v Gaoth Dobhair (Dķn na nGall) should be a good match
Didn't Cross beat Scotstown in the ulster final  a few years ago ?

2015 I think

Was behind the nets on Saturday night and the young kid was being actively encouraged by his Da to throw the balls back on just before the Cross kickout.
When a steward came over the Da took out his phone and started recording the steward. At half time the kid took a black kit bag full of balls down to the other end and the Da followed.
Petey Donnelly is just a superb keeper. The Cross keeper is not.
Young ONeill hit a point in second half and it must have started out 10/15 yards wide but he judged the wind to perfection.
Our latest All Star's antics were an embarassment.
The Island will know this was won they could have won if they had just played some football.

Tattyreagh hammered St Peters by 1 point. Far better team. Intermediate football in Armagh must be poor if this is the best they have.

On Sunday Scotstown should have been home and hosed but in the end were hanging on for dear life. Strange game.
From where I was it looked a penalty but ref obviously had a better view.
Beggan was like an outfield player at times and his place kicking was fantastic but he seems to love the attention. Would do well to watch back the AISF to keep his feet on the ground

Tattyreagh hammered St Peters by a point? You must have watched a different game. Granted St Peters didnít play that well but they could easily be looking forward to an Ulster Semi had they not missed two easy frees. And thatís not to mention some of their poor shooting

Tattyreagh cut their defence open everytime they went on the attack. Massive difference in how good the forwards were for each team.

Is that big midfielder Findon the guy that was playing for Armagh seniors a few years back? Has he been injured or what happened to him as havent heard of him recently?
Agreed St Peters forwards didnít have their best day. It is yeah he didnít have a good game at all on Saturday

Coalisland probably seen the young cross ones throwing the ball onto the field before the Ballymacnab kick outs in the Armagh final. Well directed by adult supervision also.

Didnít happen
