    That is an unfortunate clash. The 2 matches from all the games on I'd actually watch next weekend

    Minor Leinster champions

    You can't beat the youth - I know its a big jump from minor and u21 to senior and not many actually make it but its a good sign for the years ahead for us I hope.

    I have to say I enjoy watching Mayo. The keep surprising you and you just can't write them off.

    Have to say I'm looking forward to the game next week. Pity I'll be in Croker.

    Cork footballers have improved so will give Dublin something to think about as their forwards are catching fire a bit.

    About to leave now for Portlaoise to watch the Dubs. Will catch the arse of the curtain raiser.
    Hopefully goes to penos and I’ll see a bit of history being made.

    Sloppy and scrappy at times but two teams of equal quality making it a cracking contest in Portlaoise. Hard to call it.

    Laois were very good and hounded Dublin in packs today. Dublin rarely had a shot without pressure on them. The Laois shot selection was far better. Dublin must have had close to 20 wides. Laois goalkeeper made some great saves and scored 2 monster frees. Have to say Dublin looked complacent and were waiting for things to happen. They didn’t show the same hunger as they did against Galway.

    I only came in here to read that Dublin lost in the hurling today because of money, I'm delighted I wasn't disappointed.

    Great result for Meath today, massive to be getting into the Super 8's to help the team's development. Legged it after the game and didn't stay for the hurling, seems I missed a cracker.

    Be interesting to see the attendances at Croker this weekend both days. Would it not have made more sense to have both of Corks games as a double header I'm wondering.

    The Cork fans rarely support the footballers in the same numbers as the Hurlers but its alot asking fans to go both days. Unfortunately thats the way the GAA fixture plan works. They would be fearful of Croke Pk having enough capacity if they threw the Dubs into the mix.

    Some cracking games this weekend. Really looking forward to Mayo vs Kerry and Cork vs Kilkenny

    Horan definitely would not want to upset the Dubs. Instead ask another county to travel 150 miles both days or pay a fortune to stay overnight. If it was the Dublin footballers and hurlers, no doubt a double header would have been organized. The fixture plan would have been thrown the window. Definitely will be interesting to see the Dubs attendance tomorrow night, it’s probably good that Cork have been going reasonably well as tight encounter will entice more people to go. Should be played in Parnell Park though :D:D

    Cork attendance for footballers a couple of years ago when they played Dublin in both was awful compared to the hurlers, surprising for a good dual county who tend to not do too bad in the football overall.

    Dublin would be more than happy to play it in Parnell park only thing is due to the capacity a lot of people would miss out so the gaa thinking logically decide to play in a bigger venue 5 mins up the road, its an awful shame on Dublin though very unfair we have to play 3 away games in the super 8s.

    Just read only 30k turned up yesterday? That's a woeful attendance.

    In 2010 there was 17k in attendance for a double header when the footballers were in the qualifiers against tipp after meath had handed them their arse in Leinster, no mention of performance enhancing money back then btw. ;)
    can't remember who the hurlers were playing, now that was woeful. But by the time they got to the AI semi final the bandwagon was back in full swing. If next weekend wasn't a double header I reckon there'd be less than 30k in attendance

    2010 was before the GAA had spent 18m on succesfully raising participation rates in Dublin. So with a mixture of the amount of new fans that has brought and Dublin footballers now being arguably the best team ever to have played the sport,30k has to be a worry for everybody involved and is a woeful attendance by any reasonable measure.
