Depressing weekend for those genuinly interested in seeing our county football team flourish. Stars of the weekend included Mick Mc Cann, Michael Magill, Justin Crozier, Mickey Pollock, Aodhan Gallagher, Sean Kelly, with honourable mentions to Paddy Cunningham, Tomas Mc Cann ( who was quiet but nailed on a few scores when the chips were down) Colm Brady and Andy Mc Clean.

None available to/for Lenny for all sorts of reasons. And an average age of 34 between them!

Would say your last line is the reason they aren’t available

Would agree with that.

I couldn’t work out why cargin were clear favorites v champs LD and tonight’s result showed there’s not much between the teams. R LD not getting credit for winning it last year or is Damien Cassidy seen as a class manager....

Cargin were in control at half time. 2 goals outa nowhere got Lámh Dhearg into a winning position but couldn’t see it out.

Yeah thought Cargin should have powered on in second half but full credit to LD for getting back in and nearly snatching ot. Replay could go either way. Great finish by the ever green Paddy Cunningham.

On reflection I could easily add Kevin Niblock and Ciaran Close to that group too. Quite frankly from a county perspective I'd have much preferred to see a dozen stand out performances from 24 year olds.

IMO Mick and Magill were standout today and Sean Kelly and Mickey Pollock yesterday. Apologies I didn't get to the two other QF's.

To be fair I liked Eoin Mc Keown and Eoghan Mc Cabe too, and Pearse Fitzsimons is definitely county standard too if he can be enticed into the fold. Creggans midfielder Conor Mc Cann should be getting a phone call too.

Sure will be easy money in the replay....if the Lamhs can find somebody other than PC to score....he had 2-01 from play..five pointed frees and the rest of the team shared 0-01
Cargin had ten from play.....2 from frees (40 and 50 yards) and 1 '45'.
Cargin, over the 60 MNS plus had just those two frees awarded over the half way line......superb LD rear guard actions 8)

Not like him to be off the internet!


I would say he's been advised to refrain from posting about specific games (only)  to be fair to him it might compromise his position in relation to officiating games and he would deserve a shot at the business end depending on how results go...….

Any reason why the St Endas game was moved to Wednesday and now to Friday evening?

It was a very different Cargin team on the pitch yesterday since the last time I saw them.  Hard to know were they very good or Lamhs very bad.  Cargin looked the better outfit but conceded a comical goal just after the break t give LD hope. Paddy C has still got the feet and Ryan M a handful but Cargin should have had that game done and dusted at half time.

LD made great comeback, ok a soft first goal but second was well finished by Paddy C.  They miss conor murray hugely.  Mick mccann kept that cargin team in the game second half - crozier very solid.   Any update on replay venue?
