Ye will have to get by Longford after we beat Wexford and then the Dubs or Louth.

I can't see Longford beating Wexford in the replay so Wexford will face Dublin in semi and Dublin will win to prob make it a Dublin V Kildare / Meath final. Hopefully Kildare as that would be a very good close game.

I wasnt at all hopeful before last Sundays match but I fully expect Longford to beat Wexford this Sunday.

I have heard pundits say that Wexford have more room to improve but Longford did not play near to their potential last week. Having said that, the prize of playing the Dubs is a bit of a poisoned chalice.

Not a great weekend for us yellabellies, losing to Offaly on Saturday in a game we should have won (mind you, the qualifiers seem to have been kind to us - hopefully!)and then drawing with Longford due to a dodgy free awarded when we failed to keep the ball in injury time having gone ahead. But if we do lose in the replay good luck to Longford against the mighty Blues!

Forget about the wendyball, that was a great game between Longford and Wexford. Well done to ye yellowbellys, we should have had you dead and buried but we blew it.

Best of luck in the semis against the Dubs.

Fair play to Meath. Didn't expect anything out of them today but their young players were fearless and Kildare flattered to deceive once again.

Do any Kildare fans on here think McGeeney makes too many changes? They have some good forwards but they never seem to play at the same time.

Was very impressed with some young Meath players today Forde,Carroll, Menton and especially Gillespie. Was nice to see a Meath midfield again.
Kildare really over elaborate, at times it was like watching Spain, a lot of passing 40 yards out but no one willing to take a shot.
Final should be decent, would expect Dublin to pick a lot from that game, if Wexford could take their free's they would have lost

Well done to Galway. Worthy winners.
If only they would back that up with another few performances but I've a feeling it'll just be another one off.

I guess this win for Galway means that Athenry is actually in Leinster?

Thought the ref let Galway play a very physical game. In a way it's just KK getting a bit of their own medicine back, but they're usually a bit more subtle and selective about it than Galway were. Fair f*cks to them, they were absolutely worth their win, but not every ref would have let them away with the physical stuff.

Gutted for Westmeath. That close to stealing upset of the week from Antrim. Despite losing the lads can walk around with their heads held high after today.

They remind me of Sligo in 2009 and remember what Kerry did after that :shock:

Was in contact with a mate from Kerry earlier who lives local and was in Cusack Pk today.......said she was hoarse from shouting.....appears to have been a real close run thing alright....

Kilkenny/Limerick v Tipp
Cork/Waterford v Galway

I was hoping Kilkenny would draw Cork.
