Great day. Anyone know if there are highlights?

Just FYI ... Minor match on YouTube. Can't see the 20s there though

The Minor game was on TG4's YouTube channel alright, but the U20's was on only their website, and wasn't working for a good bit of the first half.

Just typed and deleted a detailed opinion on this match.

Can't face it again.

What I will say is the lack of coverage robbed people of a remarkable performance of character and determination and football.

Who the hell reels in a seven point lead against a Tyrone swarm defence? I'm not sure I ever saw that before.

Dublin have a day extra rest. Is there a reason why the final is being played a week after the semi-finals?

I don't know. Six days is a short turnaround for our guys though. I was hoping for a double header in Thurles on the Bank Holiday Monday. Dublin would still have an extra days rest, but eight days would have given us much better preparation time.

I loved Rickens comment in the Echo, saying Cork are never dead and warning Dublin to "bring extra nails" next weekend

I hope they have a good system in stadium for the exiting KK supporters and entering Dublin supporters. Portlaoise is a funny ground never feel fully comfortable there. Presume St Eddie will be introduced to the crowd at Half time.......The Cumann na Numbskull games at half time in Laois are always spicy affairs...

Numbskull is very throwaway there, Expat. You may not have meant any offence but Sciath na Scoil were one of the few who had the balls to face down Frank and the politburo when they were in their pomp.
