Ferbane are Offaly Senior Football Champions. First time in 25 years. Tears were shed.

Congrats big lad, that was a bit of a wait.

Dublin quarter-finals:

St Judes 0-11 St Vincents 0-4
Kev Mac and the Culchies prevail! Kev started with 3 wides, but put on a masterful performance after that, he was everywhere, a real leader. Vins were shocking.

Ballyboden 3-15 Na Fianna 1-15 (After extra time)
Great match, the highlights being superb performances from Colm Basquel (3-4) and Conor McHugh (0-6). An utterly appalling second yellow card for McHugh right at the end of normal time was probably the deciding factor. Despite the linesman looking right at it he allowed the ref to make an awful decision (McHugh dragged to the ground by a Boden player who basically lay on him to prevent him taking part in the last Na Fianna attack. Ref turned and saw them both on the ground and gave them both yellows, so McHugh could not play in extra time, which was an enormous loss to Na Fianna). 

Kilmacud Crokes 0-16 Clontarf 0-8
Surprisingly, Clontarf led by a point at the break. But 4 minutes into the second half, the ref gave Jack McCaffrey a straight red for a high tackle and that was game over. Another very poor decision, it wasn't remotely a red card offence. Mannion only came on at half time, but still ended as top scorer with 0-4.

Thomas Davis 3-12 Castleknock 1-17
Great win for the Tallaghtmen, Kilkenny got 3 points for Knock, but goals crucial for the Davis win.

Semi-finals:

Ballyboden St Endas v St Judes
- Have to fancy Boden, but can't write off Judes.

Thomas Davis v Kilmacud Crokes
- Should be reasonably straight forward for Crokes, great achievement for Davis to get this far.

Can't see anyone but the Dublin champs winning this, but I said that last year and look what happened. Brilliant competition in fairness.

I'd say maybe Ferbane would be a dark horse. That Cian Johnson lad looks an unbelievable talent. Portlaoise were poor by their usual standards in Laois, but they do usually up it when they get into Leinster
