By Evan Coughlan July 1, 2017 (No)

Michéal Donoghue’s men have had a great 2017 season so far, and will come into this final as heavy favourites after their demolition job of Dublin and Offaly in the previous rounds of the Leinster SHC.

By Dean Fitzgerald February 11, 2017 (No)
‘Here we all are now, all the lads’, as Fr.Todd Unctious would say. It’s time for the 2017 AIB Football All-Ireland Club Championships Semi-Finals and by god it feels like a long time since the provincials were played. ‘I thought the Dublin team already won it’ I hear you say?’ Well no they didn’t, that was the Leinster, again.
