Best of luck to south Derry on Saturday in Croke Park.

They should account for Clare.

Minors have a great chance to continue their recent run also. The probable 13 south Derry lads starting plus the Galway mid-fielder will have a great battle.

 Pity they didn't get a run out at HQ though.

Best of luck to Derry tomorrow in both the minor and senior game. Looking forward to going down to Croke Park as a parent for the first time. Great to see the 'Derry Days' at the schools and the feel good factor back across all of the county.

The locals bulls going mental around the country schools this morning. Great sight at my youngsters primary school. Great times. Imagine being told a few years back we'd be Ulster champions and playing an All Ireland q/f as favourites with a great chance of nailing down a semi spot?

What's everyone's plans for Saturday then? Is it handier getting down early and parking close to croker and getting back to parnell for minor game? Or Park at parnell and get to and from croker to car? Shocking from GAA to fixture both at separate venues.
Park at Parnell for minor game and then drive on down into Fairview and park there for croker. You'll know where to park when you see the stadium. Traffic should be fine and you'll be away from direction most will be coming from.

Derry county board refused to go through the club allocation route, unlike Galway, mean Derry be holding up 4 corners, again. There central allocations will go on later, possible nxt week, for anybody, where as Galway will have entire blocks in both cusack and hogan solely them. Slack. It not be a sell out but Derry fans be all over the place mostly in the upper stands

Does it really matter?

Everybody who wants to see the game, will see it I presume.

The sense of entitlement these days is shocking.

Agreed. With the Ulster run and factoring in that league game , at best we are at 50/50. We definitely have a chance if everything clicks and OL has a solid game.

Having an AI semi to look forward to is great. Some excitement with the underage players.

Watching abit of afl highlights there, see Brown, only his 2nd full start scored 4 goals/overs, turned into a very big strong man and his fitness seems to be through the roof compared to his minor day's.
