Ros, whose Senior County team were playing till 4th August are at County Final stage.
Sligo knocked out 23rd June are only at Semi Final stage.
Roscommon's group stage took three rounds to complete, Sligo's took five. Plus the latter's group and knockout rounds are spaced out whereas Roscommon had the groups over 3/4 weeks and the quarter and semi finals on successive weeks. It could be tightened up in some places but it not being completed by early October not really a major issue. A lot more counties than ourselves made early exits and yet only Fermanagh are done and dusted.

We switched from groups of 6 to groups of 4 this year to avoid having 2 games in April and then resuming in August.
I suspect a lot of players availing of the semi Pro American circuit in June/July means most Counties only start their Championships in August.
1 BIG CUP and 1 Cupeen so far....

Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

A bit of mini shock in the 2nd Mayo senior semi final today with Ballaghaderreen beating Castlebar Mitchels 0-15 to 0-8.  Corofin will play Tuam Stars in the final after their win today.

Four Roads win the Ros Hurling Final.
I presume as usual they will play the Rhubarb Champions in the IHC with the winners playing the Galway Inter Champs in the Connacht Final.

London champions awaits in the semi i believe.

Tourlestrane v Coolera in the Sligo senior final.

Four in a row on the cards for Tour but Seanie's boys have upset the odds twice already, maybe it might happen one more time.

Corofin v Tuam Stars in the Galway SFC final. The Stars have had a great year and are bringing through a lot of talented young players. I think they might have only lost one game all year. Unfortunately that was to Corofin and will probably be repeated in the final.

Michael Breathnach v Oughterard in the intermediate final was a draw. Replay weekend after next.

Glenamaddy won the junior.

Extra spice for the Galway final as Tuam Stars are the only club to have done 7-in-a-row. They will be aiming to prevent Corofin from doing the same.

They might be aiming to prevent them from doing it but they haven't a hope in my opinion.

That is a huge win for Pearses after all the heartache over the years.

Good to see teams like that finally winning a title. Good manager in Pat Flanagan finally got them over the line, he also won county senior titles for Clara in Offaly and Tyrrellspass  in Westmeath.

Michaels won the Sligo junior final and Naomh Eoin the hurling. First time for NE after a few defeats.

As for the junior the neighbours winning only makes it worse, a title that was tossed away.

Oughterard win intermediate in Galway. On penalties after extra time in the replay against Michael Breathnach.

Matthew Tierney kicked 3 last gasp equalising frees over the two games. First one to draw the first game. Second to draw the replay at the end. And the third to draw it again at the end of extra time in the replay to take it to penalties. And then he kicked the winning penalty for good measure.
