Champion Iíve heard mixed opinions on who people think will win. What Iíve heard a few times is the strength of the Ballyholland squad as you said. Both teams have strong benches and have players who can change games. Interesting game

Burren surely won't have a better opportunity on Sunday. Kilcoo clearly not at their best, some key men injured and I think lacking a bit of pace and mobility in defence and midfield. If it's open football burren could win but Kilcoo will fancy their chances in a war of attrition. As a neutral I'm genuinely looking forward to a fair hard hitting game and hopefully the officials won't be the talking point. Don't rule out a replay  😉

Warrenpoint's discipline let them down again today; an unnecessary red card + some slobbering at the ref gifted the game to Castlewellan. Still tight at the bottom for the last relegation play-off place; Castlewellan, Downpatrick or Ballyholland. I'm told Rostrevor are safe (on points scored or head-to-heads).

Downpatrick and Ballyholland should be relegated automatically after last weeks disgraceful scenes. Time to stamp this moronic behaviour by hitting clubs hard. If the clubs dont feel the pain either in the pocket or in status then it will continue.

So the big final tomorrow...who will win...can Kilcoo make history and be the first to do 7 in a row or will Burren beat them...Kilcoo are as weak as they have been since there domination began with at least half a dozen fellas who would be starting out injured..the one thing they do have in an unbelievable will to win which will be hard to overcome. Burren on the other hand remind me of Mayo. If there is one team I never want to see in a final its Mayo because sure as hell they never win due to combination of factors (no bottle / lack of leaders / no stomach for the fight) and Burren to date have been the same and I suspect the same tomorrow.  On the other hand they are playing a Kilcoo team with at least half a reserve side out in place of there injured seniors....surely they wont fear this outfit no more and stand up. Somehow I doubt it.

Have to say down minor final very enjoyable
Burden keeper was excellent but Mc govern and grant for Ballyholland were sensational hopefully they continue to develop.

Not often I say this but 2 good games in Newry today, the best teams won both games so congrats to Ballyholland and Burren, as Naka said Grant and Mc Govern were match winners for Harps, in the senior final the class of Donal O Hare was the difference, Kilcoo will lick their wounds and come again next year!!

Great sporting occasion today (which is the real winner ). Huge congratulations to ballyholland, a great side with classy players and just too good for us today. Well done to the seniors, commiserations to kilcoo and credit where due, today no old antics or unsporting conduct! They might be back, we go into ulster with no pressure, huge ask, (possibly not ready yet) but will aim to restore pride back to ulster club glory for the county as we have done so many time previously 😁👍#5ulstersinarow #proudhistory #futureisgreenandwhite

Donal ohare was the difference. Cathsl Murdock 1st half free kick taking kept burren in it. Minor game very good open football. Really enjoyed it. £12.00 value for money. 12, 13, 14 for Harps very good
