So if there’s no All Ireland in your head then your county title is your all Ireland surely?

That’s one of the biggest shocks, by your reckoning Ballyhale should have just rolled over today, as their current currency is All Ireland’s
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

I doubt Corofin will lose that much sleep over it to be honest

If the only prize you really want is not on offer, it must be a bit of an appetite killer

If there was an All-Ireland after this I very much doubt they'd have been beaten today

Whereas for Mountbellew to beat Corofin is an end in itself, a bit like that team who beat Crossmaglen a few years ago, Cullyhanna I think

Ballyhale were excellent today. Eoin Reid hurling very well at centre half-back. They have some talent coming through.  When you think they've lost Mick Fennelly and Adrian Mullan, yet, after a slow start, they've routed Dicksboro.

Like everyone saying, it's a great pity there's no provincial competition.

Colin fennelly is just the worst fullforward you’d ever want to meet, wins ball and just wants to turn and go towards goal!

But had they lost today they wouldn’t have lost any sleep over it  ;D

I highly doubt they would have

There are plenty of defending All-Ireland inter-county champions who haven't looked that bothered after losing their title

A facile win in a county final with that being the end of the road for the year is hardly going to down as one of the more memorable wins in Ballyhale's history

Reminds me a bit of Kilkenny teams picking up facile Leinster titles in empty stadiums with their supporters already gone home to beat the traffic

Won any county titles yourself? And said to yourself, feck that I’m waiting on Croke Park!

Corofin just didn't have it today. They were actually well beaten in the end even though you always think they will come back from any situation. You couldn't say it was coming either as they were hammering everyone this year up to today. Even in the first half they looked comfortable enough without pulling up any trees.

Makes for a novel final anyway. Mountbellew haven't won it since 86 and Moycullen have never won it.

No disrespect to Corofin but that type of stat is good for Galway club football.
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

Massive shock in the Fermanagh SFC final.
Ederney bridged a gap of over 50 years to win.

Beat Derrygonnelly on a score line of 2-8 to 1-6.
39 year old Marty McGrath was man of the match




Wanted.  Forwards to take frees.
Not fussy.  Any sort of ability will be considered

That’s a shock, great to see Marty McGrath still bursting up and down the pitch!

I remember last year that Derrygonnelly nearly came a cropper to Belnaleck at the semi-final stage, taking a replay to overcome them.
Would have been some craic if the 'leckers had beat Derrygonnelly then as they would have been in the SFC final having won the IFC in 2018 and the JFC in 2017.
Fair play to Ederney for toppling DG, mind. The last bit does beg a question though - has any club in football or hurling ever won their county Junior Championship, Intermediate Championship and then Senior Championship in three consecutive seasons? A GAA "Roy of the Rovers" story if there ever was one.

Ederney got to a championship final 2 years ago and a league final last year so not really that big a shock. Would they not be considered next best after derrygonnelly. Nice to see mcgrath get his just rewards. Poor form from the derrygonnelly 13 at the end hopping the ball of the player well after the whistle.

I would agree but they were 9/2 with the bookies.
