I don't want to post this in the "More Gaa thuggery" thread where there has already been some discussion about it because for me that's not the place for congratulating all associated with the Clonbur team in Croke park yesterday on their huge achievement in winning the All Ireland junior football final.
For a club that is coping with issues that effect many parts of the country such as emigration and rural depopulation but on an even more severe scale than most the trojan efforts of all club members and the people in the locality to even get to Croke park, nevermind to get the win, is fantastic.

Whatever about the semi final furore, Derrytresk came to play football and will feel unlucky not to have held onto the lead until the 60 minutes were up, they had a very good first half performance when Clonbur played poorly and they should have been up by more at the half. The legs looked gone in the last 15 minutes from the prior efforts however and Clonbur were really on top at that stage, despite several bad wides during the 2nd half they hit the front at the most important time in the game.

The county wins in '98 and '01 were days I didn't think would be bettered but when it's "your own" out on the pitch it's even more emotional and exciting to come out on the right side of it. Thanks for all the support from the Davitts club during the game and commiserations to ye on the intermediate final result.

Nice feeling to be heading west for the home coming celebrations at the minute!

Joyce axed from Galway panel

Galway's preparations for their Connacht SFC semi-final against Sligo later this month have been rocked by confirmation that Nicky Joyce has been dropped from the panel.

The highly-rated forward, who is a first cousin of fellow attacker Padraic, was dropped by manager Liam Sammon over the weekend for an alleged breach of discipline.

It remains to be seen if Joyce will be brought back into the panel later in the summer, but as it stands, he won't be involved for the provincial semi-final against Kevin Walsh's Sligo at Markievicz Park on June 28.

Joyce has threatened to emerge as one of the top forwards in the game over the past few years, but a series of injuries have prevented him from doing so.


Any Galway lads have the full story regarding this?

Can't see any other thread on this yet so I may as well kick it off.

Galway are coming into the match off the back of a fairly medicore performance against Westmeath while the Dubs were part of a high standard of football game against Tyrone.
That was on a marquee night in Croke Park with fairly benign conditions and a pitch in great shape for this time of year however, it's safe to say that they will get neither in Salthill.

Cullinane is I assume suspended, the Corofin lads are still out along with Nicky Joyce missing through injury. Probably will see a similar enough team to the one that started against Westmeath.

Also can anyone tell me when was the last time Galway beat Dublin in the league? It's a long time ago but couldn't be any worse than 1934 - the last championship win against the jackeens!

Have we any hope?

Worst draw possible from a Galway point of view, the rest of the qualifier winners are no great shakes, it's the toughest draw we could have got.

I reckon we will win it handy about 4-14 to 1- 13 (if only!!!). I am extremely drunk while posting this message, the Valk in Ballinrobe does that to ya.
