Michaels won the Sligo junior final and Naomh Eoin the hurling. First time for NE after a few defeats.

As for the junior the neighbours winning only makes it worse, a title that was tossed away.

Thus far no county title for Donal Vaughan since his transfer to Castlebar, anyone here disappointed for him?
Sling your hook there and leave that leading crap to your own county.

It is what it is at this stage and no need for public muck raking.
Indeed, everybody could see it for what it was.

In other unrelated news I see Ballinrobe barely staved off junior football at the weekend.

"Since the end of August, for instance, his team have scored just two Premier League goals. To put that in context, that is the same number as Aaron Cresswell, Jeff Hendrick and Ricardo Pereira individually.
Solskjaerís gamble on removing the deadwood and hoping the youngsters might step up has left him with a squad who redefine the term 'hollow'.

Maybe that is not his fault, maybe it is yet further indictment of the clubís serial incompetence that they have the biggest wage bill in the Premier League, yet do not have sufficient quality in depth to cover a temporary injury crisis. But whatever it is, Solskjaer is in possession of a team less in transition than accident and emergency.
Too big to go down has already started to be heard as an assessment. After all, this is a club with the most substantial cash reserves in world football. Even the Glazers would surely appreciate the need to buy in the cavalry in January. Except, at the moment, United are so inept, so impoverished, so lacking in direction, you could put Lionel Messi in a red shirt and he would pull his hamstring walking out of the tunnel.
The revisionist history of Dochertyís relegation has subsequently recast catastrophe as a necessary purging, one that enabled the rebuild properly to take root. Unless something happens urgently to turn around Solskjaerís fortunes, we might get another opportunity to examine the accuracy of such analysis. And for those who insist it could never happen, thatís what we all said in 1974."
Ironic when you're usually so keen to copy and paste full articles that you don't do it for one that's behind a paywall.

Seems to be a right wing extremist Councillor called Trainor whipping up hatred.
Anyone who doesn't go along with the cosy consensus of the establishment will inevitably get dismissed in such terms.

Championship draw this morning for some reason and "The draws for the Munster and Connacht championships take place tomorrow morning, while it's Ulster turn on Thursday". This is a new (and completely pointless) departure, there's barely enough talking points in the entire draw without dragging it out like this.
It's such utter bollix, a blatant ruse to try and boost Morning Ireland listenership figures in the assumption that we'll all be listening in to hear these draws, as they had already done with the qualifier draws the last few years.

And seemingly it's just the quarter-final draws being done? So basically one team in Connacht, either us, Leitrim or Mayo, won't have any clue as to who they're playing next year or when. Not as if any counties have to arrange their fixture schedule for their clubs or anything, not that Croke Park would care about things like that.

Tourlestrane v Coolera in the Sligo senior final.

Four in a row on the cards for Tour but Seanie's boys have upset the odds twice already, maybe it might happen one more time.

I don't think the snobbery exists like it use to. Plenty of people I know love to play and watch rugby and they would be anything but snobs.
Personally I don't like the sport, I find it boring and not very entertaining. I hate the way its hyped up like the This is Rugby Country and Team of us nonsense.
I also hate Ireland's Call,  and while I know that's not unique to Rugby it is more associated with it than say Hockey who also use it.
I don't feel any connection whatsoever to the Ireland rugby team. Its also cringe the over the top reactions to a friendly win against a New Zealand C team or whatever.

Must be freaky Friday or something, because Iíve just agreed with everything you just said  ;D

I agree with both of ye....
Definitely need to lie down for a while ;D

I live in the US and a lot ex pats' ask me am I excited about Ireland and the world cup, just shrug my shoulders and say, not really I don't follow it.
the English, and  French are a lot more enthusiastic than I am.

I watched a few games four years ago when I was back for the all-Ireland, it just feels like American football without the pads.
as I young fella I used to remember guys flying up and down the wings and it was exciting, nowdays seems like a different game.
finally, that Irelands song BS doesnt exactly do it for me either.

Ah come on! American football is a far, far better game.

If I never hear Ireland's Call again it'll be too soon. No offense to Phil coulter - he probably fulfilled his brief to a tee with this shite - but it's godawfulshite.

American Football is shite, but Rugby is even worse.

Agreed on that Irelandís Call bollocks.  Pure dung.
Interesting that most posters are not fans of Ireland's Call.  Is that solely due to its failings as a song?  Surely there is merit in having a song that everyone either playing or spectating can identify with.

It's totally false and cringeworthy. I'd rather have no anthem. "The four proud provinces" - except the IRFU tried to remove one of them. I know I'm in the minority as inexplicably loads of people have bought into this hypocritical rubbish. "We have come to answer our country's call" - give me a break.
This. I like to see the Connacht team do well if for no other reason than that.

Ros, whose Senior County team were playing till 4th August are at County Final stage.
Sligo knocked out 23rd June are only at Semi Final stage.
Roscommon's group stage took three rounds to complete, Sligo's took five. Plus the latter's group and knockout rounds are spaced out whereas Roscommon had the groups over 3/4 weeks and the quarter and semi finals on successive weeks. It could be tightened up in some places but it not being completed by early October not really a major issue. A lot more counties than ourselves made early exits and yet only Fermanagh are done and dusted.

Congrats to Slaughtneil , 7 hurling titles in a row.

Congrats to Portlaoise, their 13th final in a row.I think winning 11 of them.
Yeah imagine that, Portlaoise, the only club in the largest town in Laois by a country mile, with playing and financial resources that no other club in the county can match. Oh look and they get to play all their championship games in that "Neutral venue" O'Moore Park in Portlaoise too, how convenient.

Unusually without a single county final yet being decided the Connacht Junior draw is settled, as the finals are all clubs v second teams.

Kilmaine v Glenamaddy
Winner v Ballinameen
Winner v St Michaels
