I'd suspect Kerry clubs would generally be of a higher standard than Louth ones.
1 BIG CUP and 1 Cupeen so far....

And Dublin clubs a higher standard to Longford?
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

We are up against v Oramor - Marree they’d be the best Galway intermediate team for a while.

Two starters on the senior team in Nial Burke and McInerney

They weren't all that impressive v Tooreen who played most of 2nd half of that Connacht final with 13 men and they also lost a key player to injury after 10 mins.

Tooreen were the reigning champions.. listened to the match on the radio and it was a comfortable win, will watch it soon to get a better idea but they’d (Tooreen) a few rough challenges in the game to lose the players, the last one was late on though I think.

Either way our lads are looking forward to a run out at this level again.. I thought the last time would have done these lads but rubbing shoulders with the Galway lads should get them up for it!

Arguably would have retained that title if so much didn't go against them in the game. A 5 point margin is a slender lead in hurling and Tooreen got that match back to a one point game with 20 minutes to play, that was as good as it got for them as trying to win with 13 men for the final quarter proved a bridge too far.
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

Tooreen were the architects of their own downfall in that game and to be brutally honest Oranmore were quite comfortable for the majority of it.  Anytime Tooreen came within striking distance, Oran clipped a few handy points to keep them at arms length and ran out comfortable enough winners.  The first sending off galvanized Tooreen a bit for sure but prior to that they looked a bit off Orans level.

Young Ireland’s (Louth) v Beaufort (Kerry)

Very best of luck to Beaufort in the semi !

Div 5 Louth v Div 1 Kerry  :-X
Young Irelands won Louth division 3 this year. Point still stands though!!
Which is?
Junior all Ireland series featuring a Kerry division 1 team playing against a team operating at a lower level in a not so prominent football county.

Both teams are playing Div 2 football next year, far cry from Div 1 V Div 5
Beaufort were extremely lucky to beat Churchill, a Div 5 team in the Kerry semi-final by a point and a Div 3 team, St Senans, took them to extra time in the quarter final. There are a large number of teams of equal quality. Divisional placement does not tell the full story.

Two Kerry clubs get two Munster venues for their semi finals
They must have great pull on the fixtures committee

Out of interest has anyone got a number on the amount of times that Kerry clubs and county teams (junior,minor,U21) have got Munster venues for the All Ireland series games in the last decade?

In fairness Thurles and Limerick are pretty much halfway between the two teams in both ties. The problem with Kerry being so far away within the province I suppose.

Our club would have loved to have played at Thurles in the Intermediate semi final, just as a venue steeped in history for the players to run out there, and going that extra distance would have been ok.. Parnell will do

Club Semi finals involving Kerry teams and travel distances.

Junior Semi Final (Portlaoise): Beaufort - 137 mile journey, Young Irelands Dundalk 106 miles (all on motorway)
Intermediate Semi Final (Limerick): Kilcummin - 70 miles, Twomilehouse 104 miles (mostly motorway)
Senior semi final (Thurles): Dr Crokes-102 miles, Mullinalaghta - 94 miles.

Just in case the facts, ya know, might be taken into consideration a bit.

No problem travelling to Thurles to see the Mullinalaghtas play Crokes. I don't think what province the sod is in has any relevance.

What does piss me off is (off the point, I know) is anytime Longford play Ulster opposition it's an Ulster ref.

Now that I have this out of my system I do hope the crowd won't be lost in such a venue. A tighter venue may have been more appropriate. Can we expect 1,000 from Longford and perhaps a few more than 1,000 from Kerry................in a 40,000 capacity venue?

These big stadia can fit everyone in under a roof, which can be nice in February.
