Without having a shot at any ref in particular, I would say the senior football championship is badly missing some of the better refs who are not refereeing this year. Eddie Kinsella and David Moore in particular but I would also say I haven't seen Joe Brennan, Eamonn Strong or John Flynn.

Thankless job refereeing. Mick Tarpey would be well known as a ref who adds on a lot of injury time and to be fair to him, there was some amount of stuff happening off the ball yesterday. People give out when the linesman don't get involved so when they do, it's hardly fair to whinge too.

The role of the linesman is to assist the referees though. Only for Deegan we would have Keith a bracken playing on while on two yellows. Everyone roars at the lines to do his job but when they do the job they still get abused. So what is their job then?

O'Moore Park needs a rest  . Overused this year .Having the replay set for Wednesday night in portlaoise again defies logic . The pitch needs a break clearly .

Could easily go somewhere like Cretty, Stradbally, or Port even.

god forbid they would move it out of OMP


I recently asked a couny board official why they couldnt move games around the county to grounds capable of holding games.

I was told "they didnt have the ticketing infrastructure"

Mountmellick and Ballylinan in first round of the Senior championship back in 2017. The atmosphere was better than in OMP. Don't see the problem with Ballyfin and Killeshin playing the replay in Stradbally or Crettyard.

Atrocious weather today. OMP should be in a right state Wednesday night.

They were two right good games and both should have been draws .
Tarpey had a nightmare .
Ballyfin did very well to fight back James Finn was outstanding for them .
Eoin Lowry was excellent too

Delighted with the Portlaoise win on Sunday, they battled hard without playing superbly but got the job done and justified their win. Portlaoise were written off by so many except those within their own group and to give Port they start they dreamed of in those conditions and win was a good days work. I'm very proud of this team.

I see Kileshin winning tonight, I though Ballyfin initially but I think Kileshin will do it now.

Special mention for Bruno, the word legend is bandied about a lot these days but by god he is a living breathing legend.
