Glenswilly beat Glenfin 7-14 to 4-6 today. There were shitloads of goals in many of the other Donegal league matches this weekend.

Is THAT scoreline going to make breathless national headlines regarding the disastrous state of Donegal football?

What did Murphy score?

I'm curious do hear to most clubs around the county now play a defensively minded game with their half forwards all dropping back?

Do many play with just two forwards up front?

There was a Meath intermediate game that finished 1-2 apiece a few weeks back so it's not exactly confined to Donegal.

I don't know if there was any score in this game - nobody mentioned it:

From the Drogheda Independent, 1928


Extraordinary scenes at the football match in Castlebellingham (Co Louth ) were reported at the meeting of the Louth GAA Executive in Dundalk. On hearing the report one of the teams concerned Clogherhead Dreadnoughts were expelled from the GAA forever.

The referee (Mr Sean McMahon) reported that he ordered one of the Dreadnought players to extinguish a cigarette that he was smoking and the player told him to put on a Tallonstown jersey.

During the match the report continued the Clogherhead players did nothing but threaten and intimidate the Tallonstown players. Clogherhead had no intention of letting the game finish as a football game should end, and when the final whistle went they attacked the Tallonstown players in brutal fashion.

One of the Tallonstown players (McArdle) was brutally ill treated and when on the ground received a nasty kick on the left eye, and had to be medically attended. Free fights followed on all sides, with the Clogherhead men the aggressors in all cases

The referee stated that the Association was going through sufficiently trying times without having teams serve up such an exhibition.

The Clogherhead team was no asset to the Association, but rather a disgrace to it. He deplored the sickening scenes, which had taken place.

The Chairman (Ald Tom Burke, Drogheda) said the conduct of the Clogherhead players was such as could be met only by expelling them from the Association for life, and he ruled accordingly, adding that he hoped an affiliation would never be entertained from such a team again.

Back to the original topic, the 1946 Longford Senior Championship final:

Ballymahon 0-0 Dromard 0-0

(Dromard had reached the final by getting the team who had defeated them in the semi-final disqualified; still a sore point in Mullinalaghta. They managed to win the replay 1-4 to 0-4.)

It was inevitable we where going to arrive at this point eventualy, pure dung

Tho....1893 AI final finished Wexford 1-1 Cork 0-1

Been a few 0-4 to 0-3 finals as well, including a "classic final" ::)

That game in 1893 was played on a smaller pitch, 25 a side and you were allowed beat the shite out of your opponent.
