Geevagh – Bunninadden Match Prediction | 27-10-2019 12:00

Putting semi finals in intermediate semis back has more to do with a shock semi finalist waiting on return of an injured player than hurling. Totally unfair on players setting fixtures then doing their own thing at fixtures. Fixtures are a full joke at this stage. Geevagh and farnans is hard to call with Geevagh always capable of over rating themselves. For a county out of championship so early it shouldn't be tough to arrange a championship that flows. Mary's may have a useful forward unit but their backs are poor. 8 teams qualifying from 10 teams in group is farcical. Teams playing three weeks out of four in july then waiting 4 & sonetimes 5 weeks for a game. Easkey look the most consistent of four. Problem is decision makers totally removed from players and realities on ground.While county team is at a low point, to suggest we now a hurling county is laughable. Calry sick after leaving it behind first day.In intermediate forearm is forwarned for Easkey. Compare that to a league with 2 dropping down out if div 1 & 3 out of div 2. Football standard is low at moment too but lets not build hurting in county here up to be anything other than it is in most clubs...a distraction.Hard to see beyond tourlestrane at senior after surviving their annual mini-scare in last round. Aside from a handful of talented dual players the club standard of hurling is terroble. Having seen them against Calry it's hard to see improvement needed to trouble Tour. Coolera seem to be able to produce championship runs from nowhere and are possibly best placed to have a cut. Gaels have done well to make semis but won't have too many shouting for them.

Agree with your last post and find it incredulous this club is in a poor state given the amazing success it had with underage teams not so many years ago. Eoin. In reality this club should be annexing senior titles almost annually and competing in Junior A or even Intermediate given the population base they can potentially draw from.When one contrasts this with Tour who are appearing in both Junior A and Senior finals and they are a small rural parish with a population of just over 1000, obviously they are doing something right and perhaps other clubs could learn from their set up.Ps I was only teasing you regarding the predictions! One has to question the Management and Administrators who are either fighting a losing battle or else just accept this as the norm.
