Deeply disappointing when we had been comfortably ahead and let things slip in the last fifteen minutes.
The draw could have been better. Ye could have drawn St Vincents

I hear Lomans are very confident of "beating some shite team from Longford"

Good luck to the half-parish boys and the next step to be the first Longford team to reach a Leinster club final in senior football (not sure if we ever got a team in the intermediate or junior, or indeed, the hurling)

I think either Rathcline or Killashee reached the final at junior level.

Slashers, Clonguish, Killoe all champing at the bit. No-one's won 3-in-a-row since the 1990s.

As I was being told that Vincent's were out and Portlaoise were out, all the time watching us try for an equalizer that you knew was not going to come, and then seeing the wind carrying our last effort away from the upright, it felt like God was laughing at us for our carefully unspoken ambitions.

Has been mentioned in dispatches in the O'Byrne Cup 2018 thread on main board.

Mark Nally from Ros Gaels seemingly.

Slashers and Colmcille strike me as being the dark horses there. Both are performing well in the league, although Colmcille have an easier path to the quarter-finals.
