Football finals this Sunday

13 posts in this topic

1) The Connacht GAA Football Senior Championship 2013 Final takes place this Sunday at 2.00pm with Mayo vs London (sic) at Castlebar. 

 

This is a big achievement for London and, unsurprisingly Mayo, last season's All Ireland finalists, are the favourites.

 

2) The Ulster GAA Football Senior Championship 2013Final takes place this Sunday at 4.00pm with Monaghan vs Donegal at Clones.

Donegal are last season's All Ireland Champions. I'd like Monaghan to win this but it is not likely, altthough they have a good record against Donegal.

That is an achievement by London. What has brought that about?

A cynic would say the implosion of the Irish economy

That's incredible from London. I know they've had occasional wins before but surely nothing even close to this?

A realist would say this also.

 

The GAA are concerned about the number of players who are leaving Ireland. Some players who have left mid-season to find work abroad have been subject to criticism in the media, which I find pretty unfair given the economic situation in Ireland.

But how many games have London played to reach the final? I don't think it s many (one or two possibly)

Three and one of those was a replay. London winning a game is an achievement in itself. I can't see them beating Mayo though.

So the London side has definitely been strengthened by economic migrants?

What about any effect on New York (if they still play in the All-Ireland series)?

New York still play and they were well beaten by Leitrim, also in the Connacht championship. I know  New York have some ex county players from Ireland but I don't follow what they are up to.

 

Sydney GAA should be improving in quality also.  8)

Alas, London got clattered as Mayo put five goals past them. Something of a moral victory though, as the bookies had given them an 18 point handicap, and they lost by only 16.

Aye, London were well beaten.

 

Monaghan beat Donegal 0-13 to 0-7 against the odds to win the Ulster Championship. Donegal have won the last two Ulster finals.
