For this one, St. Thomasí have a clean bill of health, which means they can call on their host of big-game players including Fintan Burke, James Regan, the Burke brothers (David, Eanna, Darragh, Cathal and Kenneth), the Cooney brothers (Donal, Shane and Conor) and Bernard Burke.

Should be a cracker, good luck Cushendall. Hopefully the weather does not spoil it.

heading down to the game sat morning. honestly i cant see much in the game but i fancy the galway men to win by 6/7 at the end up.

i do hope am wrong though. was there last time in Navan when they beat Sarsfields so it would be nice to see them get back in another final.

good luck to them
hurl like f**k boi!

Have Cushendall ever been beaten by 7 at this stage before?

Has any Antrim team been beaten by 7 at this stage before?

I suspect Antrim and cushendall teams have been but am not 100% sure. Doesnít happen too often though.

Some interesting stats on that page. Watson among top scorers.

Cushendall have been beat by 5 and 6 before. Rossa and dunloy by 8. Ballygalget ran newtownshandrum to a point. Didnít realise that.

(Dunloy by 12 one year too)

I think Birr beat us handy in 92. Since then we've at least been in the game till the death.

I was at cushendall v doora-barefield, a good few years ago, the Clare team had 3 all stars, I think it was a drawn game and doora won in extra time, similar to de la salle more recently. They hammered sarsfields 3 years ago in Navan. Il not make the game tomorrow but I'm hoping the dall, will come through.

My memory is fading a bit, I mustn't have been at the replay, I've seen cushendall a good few times, and they have been involved in some epic battles, best of luck today.

Thanks. That Doora-Barefield team had Seanie McMahon center back, Ollie Baker at midfield and Jamsie O'Connor wing forward.

Cushendall well up for this although mccambridge could do with calming down.
