Lloyd, thatís 60 names and Iíd rule out quite a number of them as not good enough for county.
Others I wouldnít include due to their indiscretions a few weeks ago.
Think Hynes in goal is a contender not mentioned from Carryduff.

Yes agreed but certainly wasnít saying they are all county standard or should be with the county?I was just highlighting stand out players from the games I had seen in my own opinion but think there are certainly a few named that should be looked at and Iím sure they will be. Apologies to darragh cross and Castlewellan but just didnít get seeing any of their games.

In terms of indiscretions as you put it im not sure how this means that they didnít perform well?

County Final tomorrow , the biggest turn off in decades.

Zero interest in it with that club from The East against the weakest team ever to reach a final.

Thankfully this season is over and a very disappointing one , how that draw was made is unbelievable.

Just no buzz about 'Point or Newry and it is not good for Down.

Anyone else here feel such a damp squib the final is ?

Kilcoo prove they are worthy champions by beating top teams on way to final. Carryduff show further evidence of their peogress curve by getting to first senior final...but theres no buzz in Newry or Warrenpoint. Embrace it Yewtree, the two teams in the final are there on merit!

exactly, the best team in the county against an up and coming Carryduff team, 2 teams there on merit. why should the county final be about a buzz round the point or Newry? Kilcoo to win by 5 or 6, hopefully Carryduff can make a decent game of it and I think they can.

Yewtree the reason there's no buzz around the Point or Newry might just be because people have certain other things on their minds.
All the  players and mentors across the four codes have put in tremendous efforts in the most challenging of circumstances to give the people enjoyment and excitement. The county board, referees and all involved with Pairc TV deserve great praise for reminding us what's important during the most difficult of times. You're the sort of boy who loves sitting in the dark complaining rather than turning on the light.

id say there's great buzz down round Belfast though, 3 city teams appearing in their respective county finals,  if we were  2 pick the 2 best teams to play in the senior county final it would be kilcoo A v kilcoo B

Haven't posted here since before the semi final. A special mention to Warrenpoint, always enjoy playing them, no oul shite and play hard attacking football. They are gracious in victory and defeat and I really feel this team are capable of a senior championship. The previous game going to penalties definitely had an impact on their performance but our men were exceptional and took advantage of this. There will be more battles in the years to come.

Onto today's final, looking forward to it against Carryduff. Not sure what to expect, but certainly not expecting an easy game or a walkover as it is being reported in the news. No pressure on them as they have earned the right to be in the final and as we all know anything can happen. Their underage set up has been magnificent over the last 10-15 years and they are starting to see the rewards of it now at senior level. Great to see a new club into the final and driving through Carryduff having flags and banners up on they way to work is class.

We will be hard to live with if we play like we did in the semi final. This Carryduff team have an eye for a goal and if we nulify that and take our own chances then Frank O'Hare should be staying in Kilcoo for another year, fingers crossed.

Been a funny oul year not being able to have bigger crowds at games and that. The scramble for tickets has been brutal for this game, can I just give a special mention to Pairc TV. Their coverage of championship games has been fantastic and a special mention to Patsy Russell. The man is like our own wee national county treasure with his commentary. I've not got a ticket for tonight but looking forward to viewing from home. Pairc TV well done on the service all year.

All the best to our men in black and white today, up the mighty magpies.

Bit of a damp squib the Senior game in my opinion - Kilcoo always likely too win it

But in terms of the intermediate, what a Championship run from Saul, theyíve played excellent football along the way and for the losses the club has suffered over the past 12 months it was brilliant to see them win it. The emotion at the end in the captains speech said it all, no doubt theyíll celebrate tonight and deservedly so.

Had my battles with them through the years but glad they done it today.

I believe its 10...I think some of those Kilcoo lads could end up with quite a few more yet not much to touch them in Down.

You'd fancy a lot of them kilcoo players like Jerome, PD and maybe the older guys like aidan/niall brannigan and laverty to go on and beat that record
