So Dermot McCabe gone as a selector with the senior team. Anyone have any insight on this?

Apparently he wasn't too pleased how certain things were handled in there lately so walked away.

Anyone at the Ramor Shercock game? 5 points for Ramor now, should be more than enough to guarantee QF spot. They're looking to be ticking over nicely at the moment, not blowing anyone away but strong defensively and dangerous up front.

Was at Mullahoran Killygarry, scrappy enough affair in tough conditions. Plenty of mistakes, Killygarry missed enough to win two matches. Mullahoran were much more economical up front, in truth they lived off scraps for much of the match but managed to make more of their breaks. Killygarry black card for Mattie McKenna with about 10 minutes of normal time to go was huge for me. Mullahoran were hanging in at that stage and it was difficult to see where the scores would come from but it got them a foothold in midfield again and think it resulted in a 4 point swing before he retook the field. Got a red card pretty much straight away after coming back on. I thought overall Killygarry discipline was poor and some of their attempts at scores were woeful. Wouldn't fancy them against anyone going on what we saw last night. Mullahoran got a red card of their own couple of minutes before their red, Killian the Gunner picking up a second yellow for what looked like a fair shoulder to shoulder. Wasn't impressed with referee overall, lost the run of the game a few times and very inconsistent. Looked to be playing for a draw too but the execution of Killygarry's last free from about 30 yards out summed up their overall performance.
 Mullahoran will be very happy with their return so far, 4 points will see you into the QFs a lot of years. Don't think anyone would be fearing them too much but to be taking lightly at your peril all the same.

Bit of a damp squib in Breffni last night, Crosserlough never really got out of the traps at all in what was a do or die game for them, Gowna far superior looking team throughout. It's a far cry from The Lough's performances of last year where people were predicting a domination period on the club scene- on their recent performances if they don't get some fresh legs into that team they'll not trouble many.
 With James Smith well marshalled, Gowna looked to have their opponents under serious pressure on their kick outs from the off. And it continued that way throughout. It was hard to see any area really where the boys in black and amber held their own apart from Patrick Lynch who I think kicked 2-09 of their 2-10 total. But with a beleaguered goalkeeper, a harassed defence and a completely non-existent half forward line, the final score line very much flattered the Kilnaleck outfit.
 Gowna on 6 points with one more to play, you would fancy them to get a favourable enough tie in the QF. Was very impressed with them last night. Completely outpowered and outpaced their opponents throughout the field. Won all the breaking ball, never panicked when things were closer than they should have been and are littered with very mobile and pacey footballers who are all comfortable on the ball and generally make good decisions. They are certainly looking like one of the teams to beat and no reason why they can't go all the way.

Big wins for Ramor, Gaels and Kingscourt at the weekend, bit of a reality check for some of their opponents. Ramor very well balanced looking team, defend and attack well. McKiernan was unstoppable at times v BJD outfit, Gaels look tidy enough but if big Gearoid can be kept quiet I'm not sure how clinical the rest of their forwards are. I haven't seen Kingscourt in the flesh but they are quietly going about their business as usual and I'm sure SF is a very likely prospect for them. After that they'll take beating. Laragh and Ballinagh served up a tight contest as expected. The former will be very happy with their championship showing so far. Unbeaten and into the quarters and I wouldn't be putting any money on the champions beating them next day out either. That leaves The Lough and neighbours Ballinagh to see who will secure the final QF spot. The Kilnaleck men will be hoping their other neighbours Castlerahan can do them a favour and beat Ballinagh but that doesn't look a good bet at the moment. And even if it does happen they'll still have their work cut out against Laragh.

Ramor look good. Damien Barkey back playing this year to give some solidity to the full back line. Paddy McNamee showing well in the full forward line, had been in Australia for a number of years but showing some guile in the full forward line at 38/29
James Brady playing very well also and Simon Cadden

Gowna going well also, maybe a bit loose in defence. Kingscourt with Joe Dillon back seem to be at full strength ..

Cornafean V Killeshandra local Derby on friday. both teams have had decent campaings so far, but knockout now in the quarters.

QF line up confirmed. The champions are out and can have no complaints. Very flat this year.

Gaels v Laragh
Kingscourt v Lavey
Ballinagh v Ramor
Mullahoran V Gowna

Gowna should have too much for Mullahoran but could be a feisty affair. Gaels should have enough for Laragh, Laragh some nice footballers but think they'll struggle for pace. Kingscourt and Lavey tricky to call, the stars will be the bookies favourite but Lavey on their day could cause them problems. Ramor and Ballinagh should be another tight one. Ballinagh are a tough outfit but I'd be going for Ramor and if I had to call who will win it outright my money would be on the Virgina men.
