There was a bit of needle in that game to say the least...

Definitely. I was hoping for an upset initially, but Pearses were rotten I thought.

Corofin better at kicking the ball, taking their scores too which in the end is what winning matches is all about.

Hard luck Pearses but better team won unfortunately.
Had to make do with Willie on the radio.
Painful would be a understatement.
Still Connacht Champions

Congrats to Corofin on a 4th Connacht title in a row they are showing no signs of slowing down and remain the favourties and team to beat in the All Ireland series. Not only the best but they are the best kick passing team in the land and they play the counter attacking game to near perfection. One thing they are rarely praised about is defensively and holding a Pearses team who was scoring goals for fun coming into this final to a mere 0-7 was key to victory.

Not the best of games from Leitrim ref Eamon O'Grady, he's normally a lot better than that.

Not sure about that - when all lads want to do is twist, wrestle and fight, it makes it so hard for the referee.

agreed
but you have to start handing out cards to both teams for late tackles, putting in the foot where a lad is going down on the ball and loads of off the ball stuff.
Corofin should be odds on to win that
