That was a serious Kilcoo performance against physically stronger opposition who benefited from a series of tight decisions. It took the referee quite a while to realise that Ballyboden were consistantly taking out Kilcoo players as they released the ball, but McAuley's foul was probably the third in the same sequence of play and he had to go. While there seemed to be plenty of verbals from both sides, Kilcoo kept their overall discipline better throughout. Their defence was outstanding, with Ryan McEvoy doing an unbelieveable job for a teenage full back, and Laverty proved again that, regardless of your size and age, a football brain will take you a long way.

Surely by the book though it isnít a black??


His deliberate actions brought a player down off the ball, the ref was I think consulted by the linesman and gave a black card on his say.

Fair enough. I thought it had to be a trip / pulled down rather than just deliberate.

And fair play to him but a donkey in football skills terms , the epitome of the fantastic athlete of modern Gaelic football .

Kilcoo got their tactics spot on today. Defend in numbers and then break quickly from defence. They made life hell for the Ballyboden forwards despite a series of soft free. Kicks going against them. They created 3 clear goal chances with some very good interplay. It's a great achievement from a small rural club just to make the final. Corofin will be worthy favourites and although they are a better footballing side, if Kilcoo can bring the same level of manic aggression to the final then they will have a chance.

Yes, years after his involvement with Mayo he called to a local man in his late 50's from our area to see him before he died from terminal Cancer. A round trip probably 6 hours to see a low profile man he knew that used to open the dressing rooms and give them access to a local pitch back when he was involved with Mayo.

Unless the rules have changed a push isn't a black card.

Fair play, sounds like a decent fella.

I didn't see it but pushing someone to ground off the ball surely counts as a deliberate body collide and therefore is a black card.

I agree. It would be fairly silly if you couldnít body collide with someone after they handpassed the ball over your head but you are allowed to shove them to the ground with your hands.

Don't think the rules are open for interpretation though, think it defines the actual acts that warrant a black card and pushing isn't one. Therefore by the letter of the law he shouldn't be black carded, but I have no sympathy for him as it was a cynical act.
