The Shooting Championship reached « brutality » this weekend with both the Regional Finals and the last two rounds of the Qualifiers.. .
After that we will have the quarter-finals (regional runner-up against the winner of the qualifiers) next weekend and the semi-final at the weekend on November 28-29..
A Day Winner is required in all Weekend Matches. We haven’t even got extra time yet, with Kilkenny one point win over Dublin and Claire defeating Laois with the lowest number of matches closest to a draw.. .
It’s a familiar flashlight coupling as Kilkenny faces Galway in the Leinster Final for the sixth time since the tribesmen joined the county in 2009..
Two years ago, Galway comfortably won the reboot after the cats saved a tie on Day One, and they can settle the record this weekend.
If Galway wins, he will hope not to be a repeat of what happened in 2012 and 2015 when he beat Kilkenny in the Leinster final and then lost to them in the big match..
Galloway was a surprisingly comfortable winner (13 points) over Wexford in the semi-finals, confusing expectations that first-year coach Shane O’Neill’s men would fight against the defending champion.
Fintan Burke starred as a full-back on his debut while Brian Concon (1-04) and Connor Whelan (0-04) were among 10 different goalscorers as Galway asserted that they are not just showing Joe this year..
Kilkenny is a puzzle. A team that reached the All-Ireland Final last year but is less likely to challenge than Limerick or Galway, two teams who have not.. .
They blew Dublin out of the water in the first half of the Leinester semi-finals, leading 3-13 to 0-07 in the first half, but only managed to score seven points in the second half.. .
This could be attributed to a lack of match training against the team that played the previous week, but the way Cork outperformed Dublin later raises concerns..
TJ Reid had an unusual 1-04 role in the striker on the last day and would need support again from the likes of Colin Fennelly, Eoin Cody and Walter Walsh if Kilkenny wanted to beat Galway for the first time in four years..
It is the 21st match in the tournament that Brian Cody is facing against the Westerners, and O’Neill will be the eighth coach he has faced since 2000..
Made four changes to the team that outperformed Dublin, Tommy Walsh, Richie Leahy, Connor Bion and Martin Keogan. . Kiaran Wallace and Richie Reid fall off the bench while Buddy Dejan and Billy Ryan (who scored 1-01) are eliminated from the squad altogether..
Fintan Burke and namesake Dáithi are injury concerns but both were named to Galway, Fintan turned full back with Aidan Harte absent. Fintan’s cousin, midfielder David Burke, remains off the field while Niall Burke replaces Jason Flynn in attacking position.. .
Kilkenny: Ewen Murphy; Connor Delaney, who is Lawlor, Tommy Walsh; Killian Buckley, Padrig Walsh, Connor Fogarty; Richie Leahy and Connor Brown, John Donnelly, Martin Keoghan, Walter Walsh; TJ Reed, Ewen Cody, Colin Finlay.
Galway: Anna Murphy; Sean Loftus, Dithy Burke, Shane Cooney; Ventan Burke, Jeroyd McKinerney, Joseph Kony; Pádraic Mannion, Johnny Quinn; Connor Connor, Catalan Manion, Joe Canning; Connor Whelan, Niall Burke, and Brian Conconon.

It’s an even more spectacular combination in Monster, with Limerick Waterford competing in the Final for only the fourth time in history and the second since the 1930s..
In 2007, Dan Shanahan had a hat-trick in Daisy, but Limerick took revenge in the All-Ireland semi-finals thanks to duos Andrew O’Shaughnessy and Donnie Ryan.
Waterford actually exceeded expectations in his first year under former Tipperary U21 coach Liam Cahill.
The victory over Cork – their first in Monster since 2016 – was perhaps the tournament’s biggest surprise so far and was far more comfortable than the four-point margin would suggest. .
Former footballer Desi Hutchinson scored three points of play on an impressive debut at the tournament and Tadj de Burca cleaned up a sweeping role – would Limerick give him the same freedom?
They intimidated both Claire and Tiberary, winning 10 and 9 points respectively, and they don’t seem weakened by the absence of Mike Casey and Richie English (on the bench this time) at the back line.. All attackers score goals and so are their substitutes.
Unfortunately, John Kelly told RTÉ Sport this week that he thinks they can play a lot better:
“On the first day against Claire in the first half the score was 0-15 each,” he said. « There was not much in it and we did not enter a rhythm to be happy with. We conceded 17 single-player goals (Tony Kelly) that day.
“Against Tipperary, until the 65th minute, there might have been only two goals and Tipperary had two chances.
For his part, Cahill admits that 14 long runs in the first half against Waterford against Cork will not go against Limerick and naming Jerroid Hegarty, Tom Morrissey and Cyan Lynch as the men who will need to be stopped.
« They’ll take a lot of watching. If we can win those battles, we’ll give ourselves a chance. Finals are finals and anything can happen.
Cahill named the same team that beat Cork, although he notes that Austin Gleeson will replace the shirt-back with a full striker with Kevin Moran.
We can expect Waterford to physically challenge Limerick more than Korek or Tepe did. It remains to be seen whether that will be sufficient.
Limerick: Nicky Quaid; Sean Fenn, Dan Morrissey, Barry Nash; Diarmid Byrnes, Declan Affectionate, Kyle Hayes; Sian Lynch and William O’Donogo; Jerroid Hegarty, David Reddy, Tom Morrissey; Graeme Mulkahy, Aaron Gillan, Peter Casey.
Waterford: Stephen O’Keefe; Shane Fives, Connor Bronte, Shane McNulty; Callum Lyons, Tudj de Burca, Kevin Moran; Jimmy Barron and Jake Dillon; Jack Fagan, Kieran Bennett, Stephen Bennett; Desi Hutchinson, Austin Gleeson, Jack Prendergast.

2018: Limerick 2-26 Waterford 1-16 (Monster Round Robin)

History between the two men will overshadow the margin of the Claire and Oxford meeting.
Davey Fitzgerald and Brian Lohan were goalkeeper and full-back in the Claire teams that won All Ireland in 1995 and 98, and are good friends but have not spoken since 2014.
This can be traced back to the Fitzgibbon Cup quarter-finals when Fitzgerald’s team intentionally ignited a pre-match dispute with their opponents.
The following year, Lohan angered Fitzgerald by calling for an « independent » review of Claire’s slander – when Davey was a manager and his father was Pat County Secretary.
Last June, Fitzgerald suggested, « Maybe we should be old enough to forget it and move on » but don’t expect peace to break out in Portlawise on Saturday..
The fact that Fitzgerald appears to quickly lose support in Claire after he led the county to the Ireland All-Title title in 2013 increases the stakes.
Wexford, who was extremely active in his career towards the Leinster title last summer, was nothing but a defeat by Galway, a show that Davey Fitz described as showing « no bravery, no fighting, no character. ».
You were expecting a backlash against Claire, who overtook Lawa by 14 men and once again counted on Tony Kelly.
Captain Claire David McInerney will miss the match after his red card appeal is rejected but full-back Jack Brown is expected to be ready to start..
Wexford may miss two key players on the team, co-captain Lee Chen (hamstring) and Rory O’Connor (knee), who will face late fitness tests. That would be a big blow to the front division which only managed 0-17 against Galway.
Darren Morrissey, Kevin Foley, Sean Murphy all withdrew from the team defeated by Galway, replaced by Jack O’Connor, Joe O’Connor and David Dunn.
Wexford: Mark Fanning; Simon Donohue, William Ryan Jo O’Connor; Paudi Foley, Matthew O’Hanlon and Diarmod O’Keeffe; Aidan Nolan, Liam AG McGovern; Jack O’Connor, Lee Chen, Rory O’Connor; Connor MacDonald, Paul Morris, David Dunn.

Later on Saturday, we have a 88th championship showdown between old rivals Cork and Tiberary. The latter has won twice (40) more competitions so far.
A week ago, Ireland’s defending champion could have been nailed to this, but Cork’s stunning showing against Dublin led to a minor reassessment.
They now come with renewed confidence and after finding two new offensive options in Declan Dalton and Jack O’Connor, they added more speed to the already fast-progressing division..
Tipperary was steadfast against Limerick, who quickly became a ghost team, but it’s doubtful that Cork will be able to stifle their creative talents to the same degree.
What are the odds that this year’s Hurler will be without goals for the second match in a row?
Liam Sheedy teams tend to shoot after a loss and there will be no more motivation than full-back Badrick Maher, who was substituted early for the first time last day, after apparently struggling for fitness before the match..
Matt Kenny suggested that playing Dublin three consecutive weekends was a factor in their defeat last week, and in that sense, Tipperary’s presence two weeks to prepare could have an effect..
Sheedy has enlisted three powerful players, Patrick « Bonner » Maher, who have appeared for the first time since he damaged his cross last year, Michael Breen and Dan McCormack, for the injured Barry Heffernan, Shawn O’Brien and Mark Kehoe. . Niall O’Meara, a semi-striker who scored in the All-Ireland Final last year, has been appointed as full-back. .
Dara Fitzgibbon and Bros. Cadogan are still outside Cork, who stayed with the same team that started against Dublin.
Tipperary: Brian Hogan; Kathal Barrett, Ronan Maher, Alan Flynn; Niall O’Meara, Brendan Maher, Badrick Maher; Noelle McGrath, Michael Breen; Dan McCormack, John McGrath, Patrick Maher; Jason Ford, Seamus Callanan, Jake Morris.
Cork: Anthony Nash; Damian Cahalan, Colm Spielen, Sean O’Donogo; Tim O’Mahony, Robert Downey, Mark Coleman; Bill Cooper, Luke Meade, Seamus Harendy, Shane Kingston, Robbie O’Flynn; Jack O’Connor, Declan Dalton, Patrick Horgan.

Kerry travels to Corrigan Park to face Antrim in a battle between the best of two. Kerry has been extremely convincing so far, with two comfortable wins over Westmeath and Meath, while Antrim had a big win over Westmeath and tied high against Carlo.. . Shane Conway was outstanding in the Kingdom’s total 1–11 against Westmeath and 0-09 against Meath. Meanwhile, Ciaran Clarke was the man’s favorite with Antrim with a total of 2-07 against Carlo and 2-08 against Westmeath, including 2-01 from play..
Dawn hopes to turn the tide when they welcome the 1998 Liam McCarthy Cup tournament at Páirc Esler. Although Michael Finley’s team handed a campaign to Kildare in their opening game due to Covid-19, they advanced to the semi-finals thanks to an impressive win over Derry (0-32 to 1-120 as Eoghan Cahill scored 0- 17).. Mournemen also beat Derry, on a tighter score line from 1-13 to 0-13.
Kildare qualified for the semi-finals in Newbridge thanks to a seven-point win over Wicklow in Round Two A while Roscommon scored a minuscule three-point victory over Sligo in the second-round match B. .
Neighbors Donegal and Teron will face each other in O’Donnell Park, leaving me. Donegal advanced to the semi-finals thanks to a two-point win over Longford and a 10-point win over Armagh while Tyrone scored a comfortable win over Monaghan in Round 2B after losing to Mayo in Round 2A.. .
In the other semi-final match, he will face Leitrim’s favorite team Mayo. So far, Mayo has scored victories over Monaghan and Tyrone while Leitrim advanced to the semi-finals with a two-point win over Longford, after defeating him in their opening match against Armagh.. .
