I hope Derry win the Ulster title this year - I don't think we're good enough to win the Sam though.

Last year's semi final defeat by Galway was heart breaking. We were meant to go out on the piss in Dublin but we all ended up moping about in the hotel trying to not be really pissed off.

Sorry to tell you Irish_Gunner but it looks like Ollie Murphy will be out for Sundays clash with the Lakeland county (who were crap against Carlow).

Cokane, Derry look good for Ulster, especially since Armagh blew the whole thing wide open on Sunday by beating Tyrone.

I'll be predictable and say Galway for Connacht and Kerry for Munster.


I'm off down to Carlow to see the Dubs play Wexford on Saturday, still trying to organise transport. I'd say Leinster will be either us or the Royals.

Regarding the all-Ireland one of Galway, Kerry or Meath

I was at the Dubs match and the only excitement and entertainment on offer were the scummers up beside me beating the ****e out of one another. Left with 10 minutes to go.

What about the 5 streakers!!!!!

Seriously though I was in dismal form after Carlow on Saturday. If Wexford had believed for a moment that they could have beaten us they would have. I just hope that Brogan still had his mind on his exams! Cahill was good in the first half but, like all the backs had a poor second half. Whelo was good but hit some awful wides. At least we won't be hyped up before the Meath game, though I'm not very confident at all.

As for Roy Malone, he was in Kevin Street when I went there and some of the girls I hung around with thought he was a babe. Meant to be a nice guy, but not the brightest.

PS Trevor Giles, great footballer, but looks like Kermit the Frog!

The Meath game is in Croker I hear and not Thurles (correct?). Whats the capacity now? 80 thousand? Or is the Hogan not finished yet.

Yeah Croker in 3 weeks time. I'd imagine the capacity is up to over 70,000 so there should be no probelms getting tickets.

Shame Curraner is out as he was good for the time he was on at the weekend and allways plays well against the royals.

Cullinane did'nt last 5 minutes!!

I was at the game yesterday. 66,000 at the game and still loads of seats left. What a class stadium it is now. It has to be a venue for 2008.

GO ON THE DUBS!!!

A great great day for the Dubs. The full-back line was immense, allways been a fan of Paddy, but Goggins (who came down to Gaffneys afterwards) played a captains role and Barry Cahill had a great game for a 20 year old. Brogan and Moran were magic in the first half. It looked like it was shaping up to be a real old-school Dubs-Meath game with the typical royal come back, but Sullivan gifted us the second goal. Boylan reckoned it was free out, but on the Sunday Game you could see Cossie was nowhere near him when he dropped it. I went absolutely bananas.

Totally forgot about the World Cup and the disappointment.
Lets hope we can excorcise the ghost of the 2000 Leinster final against the Lillies.

Personally I thought Goggins had an absolute mare in the first half, but sure there ye go. Oh Lord I remember at half time against the lilywhites the last time me and me mates were thinking of heading to Fagans early cos we thought the game was over at half time.

What a day yesterday was!! Ok, defense was a bit shaky at times and midfield was well beaten but talk about getting revenge for 2000!! Can't really say anything about analysis wise as of yet as I h avent' seen a video and the second half was just too nerve wracking !! Best day weatherwise too!
