I'm sure a good number of you can recall the 1992 Ulster Football Championship semi-final v an Dún, in Casement, which Doire won.  As a matter of interest, do you remember the crowd size?  I have 34,000 in my head - could that be right?  Seems very large, although I do remember it as a massive crowd - and a massive win at the time!

It was def a massive crowd and there was some atmostphere. I still have vivid memories of the teams being welcomed onto the pitch, League champions vs all ireland champions.
That was a brilliant match.
We really did let it get away that year imo.

Wouldn’t be that crowd I reckon. I mind being at it as a wain. I thought all my summers were going to be like it.

So its official we’re moving to U13/U15/U17 and U20 next year.

Horrible decision especially when you consider that a lot of lads in their first year of Minor will be lost with the proposition of very little football for another 2 years.

I think it should be U12.5,  and U14.5 all the way up.

Keep them all in the same class group.

yes either dob or that but the change at u12 after playing with lads from u8 is disruptive

Good victory today - encouraging.   Great to see Glass come on - some addition to any team.  Niall Loughlin a great plus also even though he missed a few frees.  Two younger ones getting a goal each is no harm for confidence either.  Paul McNeill another plus to have available and Odhrán Lynch gives more options all round.  McWilliams and Kearney have all filled-out and that physical strength will be needed v Ard Mhacha.

Decent victory.. I know Longford were missing their main man, but some good performances. Cassidy showed great reactions for his goal. Kearney's goal was a good finish, after a lot of patient build up. More kicking than i expected. impressed with E Doherty throughout. Few silly mistakes at times. But always seemed like they could go up a gear if needed.

Would that main man be Quinn by any chance?!!!!  He got mentioned 3 times by the commentator, despite not playing - which is more times mentioned that some who were playing!   He has a new baby - who got mentioned twice - more than some of the players who were playing!!! Anyhow, watching the match cost me £4.13!  A bargain on Gaa Go!!  Even better news - Ard Mhacha leaked 3 goals and still have a discipline issue - red card, penalties etc.  Makes it interesting!

He was mentioned in the paper a couple of times during the week. But the commentator certainly went out of his way to talk about him (and the new addition to the family) throughout the match.
