Excellent game if a bit sloppy. DIT to win the competition. Vernon being unfit was fatal. Poly won it from the bench.

how do you make that out corn02???

I'd have Cork IT favourites, with UUJ next. UUJ are littered with county players, been looking through the DIT team and apart from Vaughan Ward and Kilcoyne they look relatively unknown.

DIT have several 'known' players. Apart from those you mentioned, Ross Glavin was midfield for Kildare in the Leinster championship last year, Donnacha Reilly has been on the Dublin panel for the past 3 years and was their U21 captain last year, plus they have several county U21s.

Well we only beat Kilkenny by 9 points, hope there's a good excuse for that...

There is a fair enough excuse, Westmeath have a very poor u21 team this year, thats pretty much it. Might beat Wexford the next day and then Laois will do the same as 2007 & 2006, except those 2 years Westmeath actually had (on paper anyways) a decent side.

Slope is gone Timmy, they completely dug up the pitch and made a new one. Serious job.

..did Nemo Rangers and Eire Og of Carlow have a big rivalry in the 80's and 90's???

To my knowledge they never met each other. Eire Og only started winning Leinsters in the 90's, and in the 90's Nemo only one one Cork championship, going on to play Errigal Ciaran and Castlebar Mitchells in the all-ireland.
Eire Og did play O'Donavan Rossa, Skibberean in the All-Ireland final in 93 I think. It went to a replay and the Cork boys won.

Great win for Westmeath, especially since Dolan and Glennon only played 20mins each. Westmeaths full back line was superb, let by the imperious John Keane, and teenager Keiran Gavin holding Clarke scoreless. Armagh were woeful up front, they have a lot of work to do. Although they have the Crossmaglen lads to come back.
And to top things off Westmeath minors absolutely hammered Armagh down in Shamrocks beforehand. Look to have a super team.

Cleary scored 2-7 for The Downs in the championship 1/4 final last year and still ended up on the losing team, but that was from centre forward where he could find space to swing his enormous legs. There is no way he is an intercounty corner forward, if he cant make it at no11 then I cant see him featuring in the summer.

who are Frank Boyle and David Finnegan, because the UCG full back line was wiped out?

Boyle is from Westmeath, has started championship for past two seasons, he is the guy who slipped to allow Mossy Quinn get Dublins goal in the 2006 1/4 final. Finnegan was playing for Galway against Laois last weekend.
The 2 corner backs that started are from Mayo but i dont think either are county players.
That tight game will stand to Queens and the fact that everyone is talking about UUJ now will do them no harm.

Queens will be happy with their win yesterday over what was a very impressive UCG outfit. Queen's full forward line of McCumiskey, O'Neill and O'Rourke was the difference in the end, with a weak galway full backline buckling regularly. although Charlie Vernon, Joe O'Kane and Luke Howard played the Galway dangermen of Duffy, Clancy and Armstrong out of the contest, Queens were taking on water virtually everywhere else. Breathnach and Ronaldson in particular tortured the malone men all day and Broderick showed glimpses of sheer brilliance. 5 points up with time running out, queens were very lucky to hold on through injury time. good to see the polytechnic coasting through! obviously they did a lot of work with lacey, Moran and dunnion to make certain they knews which side to pass to...

Broderick is an absolute class player. The fact that he doesnt even bother playing with the Carlow senior team underlines the kind of problems they have. NUIG full back line was always their weakness, and funnily enough they had two inter county corner backs on the bench, Frank Boyle and David Finnegan.

GMIT normally play in St.James's grounds in Mervue, beside the chruch. Its not the best pitch in the world tho so I woulnt be suprised if it was moved for such a big game.

For directions see;topicseen#msg117129

No idea what the WH team will be, hopefully put in a good show. Need to win all our home games as only have 3 this year and this is definitely managable. Believe Clinton is injured so would like to see Tosh be given a chance at center half forward with Dessie left inside with Green.

Anthony Clinton had a horrific injury last week. Fell 15 feet at work and broke his leg and ankle, lucky not to land on his head. Had a successful op on thursday and should be back kicking ball for 2009.

Ah, Brigids. That's right. Where are Clan na Gael from? They're just over the border from Offaly as well aren't they?

Clann Na Gael are also just outside Athlone, on road to Ballinasloe. Where as Brigids are on Roscommon road out of Athlone. The two clubs between them have dominated the Ros senior championship for god knows how long, although I dont think Clann are too hot at the moment.

NUIG 1-15 AIT 0-9

Probably wasnt a 9 point game but NUIG always in control. Armstrong did a lot of early damage until going off injured, David Duffy lorded midfield. AIT didnt have enough really, Phelan and Coughlan from Offaly were very good however.
NUIG will certainly put it up to Queens but will still need to improve I would imagine.
