Well done to Antrim today. That would be Antrim in the final wouldn't it? In fairness to Gleeson I wouldn't have been a fan of the appointment due to off field issues but he has done an excellent job. Are Antrim unbeaten all year?

I am trying to think of a permutation where we wouldnít be. If Kerry Carlow draw and Meath beat Antrim then we would have dropped three to both of their two. I *think* thatís a possibility so mathematically I donít think it is yet guaranteed.

I think Carlow will beat Kerry and would hope we beat Meath.

Actually thatís wrong... We can drop maximum three. If Kerry win and we lose Kerry have dropped two then Carlow three so I guess score difference there in that permutation.

Will be good to get a crack at Clare or Tipp to see how far we've come.

Iíd be happy with facing Laois and getting close to them, then progress from that

Carlow might have a thing or two to say just yet.

Two teams go through to AI. Think it will be Antrim and Carlow/Kerry.

Agreed - probably closer to Clare than we'd get to Tipp. None of them will want to travel to Belfast.

1b will certainly do us more good than a one off game. Still, would be lovely to give it our all v Clare at Corrigan.

Ah I didnít realise that. Thanks. I expect Carlow. The McDonagh final is before the Liam McCarthy on all Ireland day this year. It would, well should now, be fantastic to see us playing in croke on ai day again.

Play Clare at corrigan and take tony Kelly out early lol.

[edit] I had a look. McDonagh teams donít get into the Liam McCarthy this year. According to this anyway...
