Good news if it goes ahead. 15000 is a decent capacity and hopefully Kildare will make more progress in the years ahead.

The GAA have handed September to club games and other sports. It is still quite warm and a while before back to school. It will take a bit of getting used to.

Galway were a team running on fumes yesterday and had no viable options to bring in really, Burke and Flynn were always going to come on but apart from them the bench was very bare. The job for Galway for the winter is to find those few extra players, Fintan Burke was immense for the u21s this year, I'm sure we'll see him and a few more brought in for the league. Disappointing to lose but losing to a team like Limerick who were in a similar position to ourselves last year makes it a bit easier. Well done Limerick!
Galway were very lucky with injuries last year especially down the spine of the team. I think we should get another all Ireland if the panel is boosted and injuries to key personnel are avoided.

If Tyrone get their arses handed to them on a disposable plate the omerta won’t look very smart

Colmcille 1-17 Granard 1-9

Quarter-final draw:

Killoe v Abbeylara
Colmcille v Granard (people will have to watch this - again)
Mostrim v Mullinalaghta
Clonguish v Dromard
“Killoe, Slashers, Clonguish, Dromard, Abbeylara.”

Slashers are out and Clonguish will knock out Dromard or vice versa

Disappointing to lose but Limerick deserved it and what a day for them. Delighted for people like Richie Bennis and Ciaran Carey.
In the last 25 years Offaly, Clare, Wexford, Tipp, Cork, KK, Galway and now Limerick have won. That is a reasonable spread.

From a Galway pov winning a final “cold” on the first attempt even after a superb semifinal is very hard. I remember 2005 after putting 5 goals past the cats. Cork were just too cute.
There is going to be a lot of pressure on Limerick. If they pull it off it will be massive.

I think defeats when it was pure knockout with no second chance were more sickening. If the team is beaten twice there is less chance that it was robbed by fate.

It will depend on how many wides Galway have. In last year’s final I think they only had 4. Anyway it is great to see 2 non old firm teams in the final.

Yeah only seafoid thinks it is a foregone conclusion. Limerick have a big chance here and they have good depth to finish strong. I wonder will dowling start.
No such thing as a foregone conclusion with Galway hurlers. If Limerick are good enough they can win.

I can't see Flanagan getting any change out of Daithi Burke and I'd suspect Gillane will be picked up by Tuohy rather than Hanbury (or Loftus) due to his ability to go for goal. Hanbury will still have his work cut out on Mulcahy all the same but Mulcahy is more inclined to pick up some nice points than bore head down on goal.

If McInerney is indeed fit, with Mannion and Harte either side Limerick will need to bypass this line when possible. It has to be noted that in the original semi-final it was really only after McInerney exited the fray that Clare made big inroads into the Galway defence.

Not sure this Limerick team would have the same speed about them as what some of the Clare lads would have had and where Clare got joy.

My gut says Galway to grind out another victory but if Limerick can keep the margin small going into the final straight then you never know and the likes of Dowling being sprung from the bench could get them over the line.
I fancy Galway to get a few goals though as the Limerick fullback line has struggled with big strong ball winners all year.
I think he also ignores Limerick's lack of experience
They will win something in the future most likely but this year might be a bit soon

Galway hurlers

1989 loss to Tipperary was sickening because of the ref, Mr Denton, and because Keady was suspended and because Antrim were in the final so it was a guaranteed all Ireland but Tipp's need was obviously greater...
91 v Tipp because it was the end of a great team
2013 losing to Clare after having been in the final the year before. And then the hoors went on to win the All Ireland. That was a real sickener

Footballers would include 1983 in a very bad final vs the Dubs who had 2 less players
2007 and 2011 getting dumped out of the championship by Meath. FFS
 And 2012 when we were beaten by Antrim.  Hardstation was ecstatic . Every cloud has a silver lining.
