Portlaoise are nailed on to beat Arles.
Joseph's will take care of clonaslee annanough combo.
Graigue should win the derby.
Strad comfortable v heath.
A Killeen by 4/5 v port.
Hard to call the other 3 games. Ballyfin had a bad league but they always do!

Bit strange you saying that. On the other Senior championship post you say Josephs should be aware of the Clonaslee set up. How you think they are a stand out team bewilders me. They are average enough as they presently stand and are lucky to have one of the lesser teams in the first round. I agree with your assumption on the other post, they should be aware.

I think Clonaslee could give them a run with the Annanough boys Joseph's are bang average

Josephs without 5 players are bang average, what the Clonaslee Annanough Amalgamation works out like is anyone's guess

Can see The Heath giving Stradbally a serious rattle

I think this is the thing. No one knows how the Clonaslee Annanough thing will go.
How many Annanough lads are involved? Scully, Donal, Rory, maybe Simon Miller are the ones springing to mind.

O Dempseys win well but scoreline could have been different with Ballyfin missing a few great goal chances
at a time when there was 5/6  points in it.
O dempseys too missed late goal chances but got 3 points from their attempts for goals.
Rumours about Ballyfins training not going well because of numbers and hurling commitments looked true .

They were a shambles at the start but after a few changes they played some good football to drag themselves into the game.

O dempseys looked fitter and well drilled the advantage of extra training less fixtures and division one football was evident in their use of the ball and their turnover in the tackles.

Rory Bracken was decent as was Robbie kehoe

I thought johnny kelly and the number 7 were also excellent

The corner back did well on sean moore but talk in the stand he was carrying an injury

For Ballyfin james finn was decent made some serious runs with little support

Sub Rob Tyrell was also good

Infact Ballyfin ended far stronger looking than they started on the field .

O dempseys will fall short of a semi final place i think while it depends on the draw for ballyfin probably better than one or two at this level but being a dual club with small numbers is just very difficult for them.

Comfortable for ods. Ballyfin were very unfit looking.
Finn tried his best but hadn't much help.
Ods will probably make q finals but whether they go further is questionable. Could make a semi.
