Afternoon, ladies and gentlemen.

You’ve joined us in ample time for what promises to be another dramatic day of  club hurling and football.

We’ll start of with updates as we get them from a big one in Kilkenny; the quarter final between James Stephens and Graigue-Ballycallan.

Let’s do this.

To keep you bang up to date: that Kilkenny county quarter-final was due to throw-in at 1.45, but we’re still waiting. That’s the glamour of the Championship

Aha,  our tin can has been reconnected to its string and we are in full swing.

LATEST: James Stephens 1-3  Graigue Ballycallan 0-7

It’s a predictably tight tussle after 15 minutes in Freshford.

Graigue Ballycallan had raced into a 01- to 0-5 and 02- to 0-6 lead before before Stephens hit the net through Niall Mullins.

LATEST: James Stephens 1-4  Graigue-Ballycallan 0-10

Graigue still keeping the score board ticking over landing two points for every score James Stephens can muster. 27 minutes played.


HALF TIME:  James Stephens 2-5  Graigue Ballycallan 0-10

And Stephens hit the net again, and it couldn’t have arrived at a better time. They’ve trailed throughout the first half, but now lead.

Back in Dublin, we’re underway in the first football semi-final in Parnell Park an after 13 minutes…

LATEST: St Brigid’s 1-3 Kilmacud Crokes 0-5

The for Brigids there is the most recent score in that game from Ken Kilmurray. And, as I type…

GOAL:  St Brigid’s 2-4 Kilmacud Crokes 0-5

Paddy Andrews provides a massive moment in the game to put Brigids four points up.

The second half is off an running in Freshford and James Stephens have stretched their lead.

LATEST: James Stephens 2-8  Graigue Ballycallan 0-11

GOAL:  James Stephens 3-8  Graigue Ballycallan 0-12

You can strike the last comment from the record, Stephens have not only stretched, they have consolidated their lead thanks to Eoin Larkin.

40 minutes gone in that quarter-final.

LATEST: St Brigids: 2-8 Kilmacud Crokes: 0-7

Paul Mannion swings over a cracking point with his right  to reduce the deficit to two goals again before John O’Loughlin restores the seven-point cushion.

LATEST: James Stephens 3-11 Graigue Ballycallan 0-14

No sign of a comeback in the Kilkenny SHC quarter-final (yet). 49 minutes gone and James Stephens look in full control.

HALF TIME: St Brigids: 2-9 Kilmacud Crokes: 0-7

Another fine score from John O’Loughlin ensures that Crokes will have it all to do in the second half in Parnell Park

GOAL: James Stephens 4-11 Graigue Ballycallan 0-15

Stephens hit the net a fourth time! They’ve timed their run to perfection and Flood has increased their lead to eight points after 50 minutes.

FULL TIME: James Stephens 4-12  Graigue Ballycallan 0-15

There’s the final whistle, Stephens advance to the semi-finals after a dominant second half display in which they held Graigue Ballycallan to just five points while adding 2-7 to their own account.

In Parnell Park the second half has begun with bang from Pat Burke to get Crokes back into the game.

GOAL: St Brigids: 2-9 Kilmacud Crokes: 1-8


And incredibly, the sides are level!

Cian O’Sullivan grabs a second three-pointer for Kilmacud before Dias brings the score to …

LATEST: St Brigids: 2-9 Kilmacud Crokes: 2-9

Just five minutes gone in the second half.

LATEST: St Brigids: 2-9 Kilmacud Crokes: 2-11

Brigids have that thousand-yard-stare about them.

Their eight-point lead from  half time has been utterly obliterated by 10 Crokes points without reply.

OK kids. Are you all strapped in? Because we’re about to go full throttle with most of the above senior championship games getting underway in the next 20 minutes.

We’ll be focusing primarily on the Mayo SFC final, but will endeavour to keep you abreast of any drama as it’s occurring.

Three Adrian Morrissey kept the Kilmacud Juggernaut going, until Ken D’Arcy stopped the rot with a free for Brigids and Cian Mullins follows it up.

Is that the ship steadied for the northsiders? Can they hit back?

50 minutes gone in Parnell Park

LATEST: St Brigids: 2-11 Kilmacud Crokes: 2-14

Oh dear.

What will we do without the pipe band?

THROW-IN: Ballintubber 0-00 Ballaghadereen 0-01

The Mayo SFC is off to a flying start thanks to a free from Barry Regan

LATEST: St Brigids: 2-12 Kilmacud Crokes: 2-16

Another score from Paul Mannion looks to have settled this game. 57 minutes gone

LATEST: Ballintubber 0:01 Ballaghdereen 0:04

Ballaghdereen enjoying the early exchanges with Joe Dillon and Keith Rogers on the scoresheet before Barry Regan takes his second

Jason Gibbons has Ballintubber’s sole score after 14 minutes. But they also had a goal chance, blasted wide.

FULL TIME: St Brigids: 2-12 Kilmacud Crokes: 2-18

What a comeback!

The Ulster championship preliminary has started well for the Tyrone side. While down south in the Clare SFC final Kilmurry-Ibrickane looking ominously in control.

LATEST: Mullahoran 1-02 Errigal Ciaran 1-04

LATEST: Kilmurry-Ibrickane 0-03 St Joseph’s Doora-Barefield 0-00

LATEST: Ballintubber 0-03 Ballaghaderreen 0-06

Barry Regan is punishing Ballintubber with his accuracy from frees. He’s the difference between the sides, but from the left touch-line he’s missed his first of the day after 25 minutes.

Alan Dillon responds from play to narrow the gap.

GOAL: Mullahoran 1-02 Errigal Ciaran 2-04

Peter Harte puts the Tyrone side firmly in the driving seat after 20 minutes.


Mullahoran’s mountain to climb just got 45 degrees steeper. Paul Brady, only minutes on the field as a substitute, is ordered back off it.

HALF TIME: Ballintubber 0-03 Ballaghdereen 0-06

Meanwhile, in Laois.

LATEST: : Portlaoise 1-4, Arles Kilcruise 0-3

GOAL:  Mayobridge 0-01 Kilcoo 1-00

Conor Lavery has made the first score of the Down SFC  count treble.  Mayobridge would surely have set their hopes on keeping him quiet. ‘Bridge have since opened the scoring thanks to a Cathal Magee free

With all due respect to Meath hurling, we won’t be prioritising the action in Navan where the Meath SHC final stands at…

HALF TIME: Kiltale 0-08 Killyon 0-06

Our resident Meathman Gav Reilly says: “Kiltale a little wasteful in front of the posts, and Killyon will have the breeze in the second half.”

So a shock on the cards perhaps.

LATEST: Ballintubber 0-04 Ballaghaderreen 0-06

Another goal chance goes begging for Ballintubber, but Alan Dillon is swiftly on the scene, showing all his power to cut right, into space and he fires his shot over the bar.

LATEST: St Judes 0-03 Ballymun Kickhams 0-07

20 minutes gone in the second Dublin SFC semi final and the northsiders are in full control. Kevin Leahy with Kickhams’ latest score.

Back to the Kilkenny SHC quarter-finals now where Martin Comerford is on the score-sheet after 17 minutes.

LATEST: Carrickshock 0-5 O’Loughlin Gaels 0-6

Approaching half time in two Ulster finals.

LATEST: Kilcoo 1-03 Mayobridge 0-04

LATEST: Ballinderry 1-06 Slaughtneil 0-05

They couldn’t be separated last time out and the replay of this Galway SHC quarter-final looks like it will go down to the wire too.

Just approaching half time it’s..

LATEST: Loughrea 2-04 Mullagh 0-07

LATEST: Drom-Broadford 0-8  Newcastlewest 1-07

HALF TIME: St Judes 1-04 Ballymun Kickhams 0-10

LATEST: Carbury 0-08 Sarsfields 1-09

From what we can gather, Alan Smith is putting on a point-scoring clinic in the Kildare SFC final. His four points from play the difference between the sides with six minutes on the clock.

HALF TIME: Kilcoo 1-5 Mayobridge 0-5

And Conor Lavey’s early strike is the difference at the halfway stage of the Down SFC final.

LATEST: Portlaoise 1-09 Arles Kilcruise 0-05

GOAL: Ballintubber 0:04 Ballaghadereen 1:08

Ballintubber couldn’t keep a scramble from resulting in a goal. we’re in stoppage time in McHale Park and this one is all but over.

FULL TIME: Portlaoise 1-13 Arles-Kilcruise 0-09

LATEST: St Judes 1-05 Ballymun Kickhams 0-15

Nowhere near the drama in this second semi-final. Ballymun cruising towards the Dublin SFC final thanks to Ted Furman’s goal.

FULL TIME: Ballinderry 1-10 Slaughtneil 0-10

With Ballinderry under the cosh and down to 14 men, Conleth Gilligan stepped up to the plate and delivered.

His two late scores eased some massive pressure from Slaughtneil and Ballinderry are the Derry SFC champions.

FULL TIME: St Judes 1-07 Ballymun Kickhams 1-16

And so it will be Ballymun Kickhams who face off against Kilmacud Crokes in the Dublin SFC final.

Yes, it all went horribly wrong for Mullahoran, but they are defiant.

It’s all over in the Longford SFC final. they couldn’t be separated last week, and they coudn’t be separarted today either.

It was 10 points apiece going into extra time, but after coming within second of losing last Sunday. Emmet Ogs have done it!

FULL TIME: Longford Slashers 0-12 Emmet Óg Killoe 0-15 AET

And here it is. News final result of the day is filtering down from the hills and Glenealy are Wicklow hurling champions for the third year in a row. They marginally edged Carnew who ended the game with 14 men.

FULL TIME Carnew Emmett’s 0-10 Glenealy 1-11

That’s all from me. Hopefully at elast one of the results above brings a smile to your face and some bragging rights to your workplace.

Here are all the results from yesterday’s GAA club action
