Thought I might aswell create a topic on our provincial final. Given Dublin v Meath is unlikely to be too competitive, Ulster final likely to be blankets galore and Connacht somewhere between unbearable and sensational (depending on who you listen to), this may well be the most watchable of the provincial finals.

Last (allegedly) football final in the crumbling kip that is current Páirc uí Chaíomh aswell.

P.S: The open paragraph, may or may not represent my actual views on provincial finals..it is merely intended to grab the viewers attention!

Clearly nobody else is going to do it so might aswell myself. Surely 2 of the top 5 going head to head merits some discussion?

CORK (SF v Kerry): A Quirke; R Carey, E O’Mahony, E Cotter; N O’Leary, G Canty, P Kissane; A O’Connor, P O’Neill; F Goold, P Kerrigan, P Kelly; C O’Neill, A Walsh, D O’Connor.

KERRY (SF v Cork): B Kealy; M Ó Sé, A O’Mahony, K Young; P Crowley, E Brosnan, B McGuire; A Maher, B Sheehan; P Galvin, Darran O’Sullivan, Declan O’Sullivan; BJ Keane, K Donaghy, P Curtin. Subs: T Mac an tSaoir, T Ó Sé, S Enright, S Scanlon, J Lyne, D O’Callaghan, M Geaney, J Buckley, D Casey, K O’Leary.

Counihan doing his usual stupid move of naming the team that started the last game (which won't start obviously)...will be interesting to see how it goes anyway.

Written by Conor McCarthy, former Cork player. It raises some very serious issues about the training elite GAA players espeacially are doing these days.

GAA Discussion / Ger Brennan's prayers..

Had to post this...apparently Ger "prays for the safety oif teammates and opponents" before games?!

I wonder did he pray for Declan O'Sullivan pre AI final before nearly decapitating him?! Seriously though, what sort of shite is that to be coming out with? I think its highly ironic that he is one of the weak links in the dubs team as he is actually pretty reckless and has got quite a few red cards for reckless tackles in recent years! Opinions?
