Down to last 8 now. There should be some interesting games.

Nemo v UCC

I hope Nemo win this. UCC almost full-time now though. They have more players to pick from as well. Nemo experience should get them through.

Valley Rovers v Duhallow

Knocknagree, Kanturk, Boherbue, Rockchapel and Ballydesmond are still all involved in their respective championships (though latter two could be gone after tomorrow). This won't help preparations. Valley Rovers are flying. They have had tough games against better sides than Duhallow (Ballincollig and Avondhu) and came through. The form suggests Valley will win.

Ballincollig v St Finbarr's

Their second meeting. Collig hammered the Barrs in the first round. They lost themselves against Valley Rovers but easily accounted for a strong (on paper) Muskerry side. Barrs had a tough test against CIT and progressed. Stephen Sherlock will be available this time (he wasn't in game one). That on its own should ensure the game is closer. Collig would be stupid to underestimate them. Provided they do not, they should win.

Castlehaven v Carbery Rangers

Castlehaven have arrived here by beating CIT in May and Carbery. They have only won one league game and that against Illen Rovers who are very weak. They were hammered in one match against Mallow. Id expect them to be better in championship and would not rule them out. They will have to be much much better though to win this game. Carbery by a few points I would say.

Must say i was highly impressed with the barrs, very strong from back to front. The ref had a bit of a stinker favoured ballincollig hugely, they must be dark horses for.the county now

Thought that the ref was iffy on both sides. McCarthy Barrs No 7 gave Paddy Kelly a torrid time, the ref never picked on it.BARRS were mighty impressive a should give the County a good rattle. Sherlock the real deal, MyersMurray a carbon copy of his father.

Nemo and UCk last night was probably the best entertainment value football game we have seen in PuiR in long long time.It had everything, pace, great ball handling skills and some top drawer scores on both sides. Nothing cycnical but all out attacking by both teams. Football played like this is attractive to watch but unfortunately we see too few games like this.

Or for the sake of argument, was it naive and lacking in intensity? Perhaps matches like this are the reason our elite footballers and coaches seem bamboozled by the shark infested waters of inter county football.

I'd say Sunday's semi final against Duhallow could lack intensity too. Newmarket, Kanturk, Boherbue & Knocknagree all have big matches on Saturday.

Did Shields play at centre forward for the Barrs again? Looked past his best as a back in the championship last year (didn't see any of the league games personally) but this kind of position reshuffle is something we've seen Kerry do so well with their older players over the years while we just discard players that could well have something left to offer.

He did, according to the echo he scored a rasper of a goal against CIT. From what i seen against ballincollig he did a lot of covering back helping out the defence and didnt do much from an attacking point of view
