CP has been rumoured for the semis. Triple headers maybe.

I saw somewhere that Derry play Mayo in the hurling too and there would be a double header, what in? Thought both their seasons were over.

Derry v Mayo in All Ireland U21B hurling quarter-final this weekend alright. So would definitely make sense to double that up with the U20 football semi. Although you'd wonder if there are any dual players.

Hurling game is in Carrick on Shannon. Football will probably be afterwards.

Its a poor mans U21 football championship but FFS the powers to be could have made a better effort than just throwing this competition together. I hope a better effort is made of the competition next year if not its going down the same road as the All Ireland junior championship which i might add had two semi finals on at the weekend and Galway will now play Kerry in the final hands up how many knew those games was on?

Both on Saturday at the same time.

Kerry v Kildare, Gaelic Grounds, 4pm
Mayo v Derry, Pairc Sean MacDiarmada, 4pm
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

Some provincial championships ran of quickly and in the middle of exams. Teams not playing with some of their better players. The lack of interest is alarming as seen with the low attendance at last Fridays Leinster final. I could go on but I'll only upset a few of our residents here that have themselves convinced this new competition is improvement on the last one.

I have to say the Leinster championship was well done and guaranteed all but one county of 3 games (Louth finished 3rd in a 3 team group and missed out on a 1/4 spot). The only complaint was that it has been a bit too condensed and it would have been nice to have a 2 week break before the AI semi final.

Credit also goes to the Kerry folk who travelled up to Navan for the junior semi too at the weekend. Clifford's older brother is a handy player only a little on the small size.

Well I can reassure you I am from Kilmovee . We used to beat eastern gaels regularly when I was a young buckeen though  , by crikey that was some field they used to have .

Talk about the kettle.......
I played a national schools game in Kilmovee back in the day , the crossbar was a rope.
