Long journey for Sarsfields, Slaughtneil, Athenry and Johnstownbridge comes to an end this weekend

It’s been a long old journey for Sarsfields, Slaughtneil, Athenry and Johnstownbridge, but this weekend the cups will be handed out.

Sarsfields and Slaughtneil will again lock horns in the senior decider, while the Intermediate title is up for grabs between Athenry and Johnstownbridge. Two Galway tribes, one Derry, and one Kildare.


These finals were due to be played two weeks ago but were postponed due to the Beast From The East. For Slaughtneil and Johnstownbridge, it’s about stopping those Galway sides from the west.


Interesting, Slaughtneil and Sarsfield had both never been in a senior final before last year, and now they’re in it once again. The Oak Leaf County side won a ding-dong battle by 1-10 to 0-11, highlighting how finely poised this game could be.


Into the mix, Sars are hoping to give Galway a first Bill Carroll Cup since 2011, and avoid what would be a fifth consecutive final defeat for the county’s representatives. 
Captain Orlaith McGrath has spoken about the difference in attitude and concentration this year, now that they don’t have the dizziness of a first county title or the novelty of Croke Park distracting from their job on the field.


Manager Michael “Hopper” McGrath, a legend for the Galway hurling side in the 1980s and ‘90s, has led his side through a number of tight clashes, a sign of an added maturity this term.

Neither Mullagh nor Burgess-Duharra breached their goal, and though they are branding themselves as underdogs, they’ll know how close they got in 2017.


The question for Slaughtneil is whether they have the same desire as when they were chasing that maiden crown, but the signs are good. They needed extra time before getting the better of Kilkenny side Thomastown by 0-14 to 0-11 at Inniskeen Grattans, so doing it the hard way won’t frighten the Derry brigade.

They’ve added to their team from one year ago too, by bringing in a star of Offaly camogie. Tina Hannon transferred from Naomh Bríd, a combination of Ballyskenach and Coolderry, and has immediately won herself county and provincial honours. She scored 0-10 in the Ulster final win against Loughgiel.

 

Denise McGuigan, Siobhán McKaigue, Aoife Ní Chaiside and Dervlagh McGuigan and Shannon Graham could all be crucial on the day.


Perhaps the Galway side might atone for last year, and end seasons of heartache for the Tribal County.

There's an interesting battle in the intermediate final too. When we talk about a side bouncing back, perhaps that suggests a fallen team restoring themselves to their former place in the pecking order.

Athenry didn’t simply settle at that after relegation from the intermediate level in Galway in 2016. They absorbed the shock but came back up to win a county title.

 

That might have been enough for plenty of teams but not for Athenry, who followed up their glorious win over Mountbellew/Moylough by downing Lismore of Waterford by 0-8 to 0-2 in the AIB All-Ireland semi-final. 

They’ve been here before though, making finals in 2007 and 2009, only to lose out to Tipperary side Cashel. Long before that, the Tribal County side had their biggest glory, winning the All-Ireland title of 1978 when beating Portglenone from Antrim.

 

But this is the first time that the side will have walked out behind the parade at Croke Park, as the decider was only moved to GAA HQ in 2011.
They’ve been out training in all weather, including the snow that hit their parish a couple of weeks ago. They will lean on the experienced trio of Therese Maher, Jessica Gill and Rebecca Glynn, while Niamh Hannon and Noreen Coen provide further threats.

 

Johnstownbridge are standing in their way, and they are looking to create some history. The Kildare side are hoping to complete an AIB All-Ireland three-in-a-row in their first season at the Intermediate level, having collected the junior title in each of the past two campaigns.

This season, they beat Myshall — who had been in the final last year — and Eglish of Tyrone while manager Declan Flanagan has a full deck to choose from this weekend.

 
His daughter Clodagh is one of the leaders, while Róisín O’Connell and Siobhán Hurley will be hoping to get on the end of their attacking moves.

 

A tough one to call.

My names are Ashley Vivian, Am here to share a testimony on how Dr Raypower helped me. After 1/5 year relationship with my boyfriend, he changed suddenly and stopped contacting me regularly, he would come up with excuses of not seeing me all the time. He stopped answering my calls and my sms and he stopped seeing me regularly. I then started catching him with different girls several times but every time he would say that he love me and that he needed some time to think about our relationship. But cannot stop thinking about him so i decided to go online and i saw so many good talk about this spell caster called Dr Raypower and i contact him and explain my problems to him. He cast a love spell for me which i use and after 24 hours, my boyfriend came back to me and started contacting me regularly and we moved in together after a few months and he was more open to me than before and he started spending more time with me than his friends.

Dr Jack, Here is my testimony from a Heart Warming indebted Client (Joy Ofeimu from United states)

I will try to make this short as possible. In July I found out that my husband of almost 17yrs was having an affair and he actually brought this woman to my home. I was devastated to say the least. I met my husband 18yrs ago and he swept me off my feet and we got married 11 months after we met. We had a great marriage (I thought) we have two beautiful boys. In 2015 we moved 800 miles away to a very small town due to his job. I quit my high paying job at a company that I had worked at for 14yrs to move away from my family and job/career to be a stay at home mom. Then here we are 2 and 1/2 years later going through a divorce and no job. I felt schizophrenic going through all of these emotions from acceptance, to denial, to how can this be and back again. I tried all the best effort i could to get him back from this woman whom he was having an affair with, and make him see how much i love to be with him. but he insisted he never wanted to be with me anymore. Its was almost 4 months since he started living with this other woman, then i decided to use Dr. Jack spells for help because i had no other choice and i felt everything was lost to me. I had the most wonderful and happy marriage after using his spell in just 48 hours, and that was how my marital life was fixed back to its right track. If you are one of the people who is in a loveless and unhappy marriage that cannot be salvaged (and you can only determine that by being very honest with yourself), believe me...there is light at the end of this tunnel.

Effective powerful love spell to get your Ex lover back urgently after breakup/divorce!.
Hi everyone,
I'm so excited. My ex-boyfriend is back after a breakup, I’m extremely happy that will are living together again.
My boyfriend of a 4yr just broke up with me and am 30 weeks pregnant. I have cried myself to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again. Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes, my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time. Generally he is a very nice guy, he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along. He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot .After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change. I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with. I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe. He texts me now and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy, he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy.
I was really upset and I needed help, so I searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ahmed can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and I did it then he did a spell for me. 17 hours later, my bf came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my bf are living together happily again...
All thanks to Dr Ahmed if you have any problem contact Dr Ahmed now and I guarantee you that he will help you. Here’s his contact. Email him at: Ahmedutimate@gmail.com Call/what’s-app him: +2348160153829
By definition, the lottery is a game of luck and chance.Lottery is not a good idea since it has a lot of negative factors that are included along with this idea. Negative factors such as lottery wastes your money, it builds the habit of being greedy and also can harm your life in the long term.It leads to addictions spending all your life savings on buying tickets this are the advise of my relations before today!!!
Everyone wants to win the lottery. Whenever jackpots get to record breaking highs you and everyone in your family goes out and buys several numbers hoping and dreaming that one of the tickets will change your life forever. While most of us will never experience the financial bliss that is winning several million dollars, there are some people out there who have had the luxury of this vast amount of free money but will never divulge the sources of such favor most time you feel they understands the odds better but the truth is most huge winners of the betting has untold tales to tell the world on how it all happened.
I'm KAREN HARGER; I have always wanted to be able to not live paycheck to paycheck or have any debt. I worked in accounting for about 14years and was barely able to make ends meet. It seemed like any time I moved up in the company and received a raise, my living expenses would go up significantly and I was never able to get ahead. Today i'm here to share my turning point testimony about Dr Savior who help me with the lucky winning numbers for (IA LOTTERY DRAWS) I won 1,000,000$ in my IA play lottery draws, I took an advice from a testifiers who talked about this great spell caster called Dr Savior, the testifiers placed a testimonies on a blog saying how Dr Savior helped her win the lottery by casting a luck lottery spell for her to win a lottery game, I was curious and I thought it was all joke not until I contacted this spell caster to know for myself how this work cause I have spend a lot buying tickets and I never win. I contacted him and he told me the necessary thing that need to be done and I did it and he told me to wait for 3 days and truly he gave me the winning numbers to play the lottery which I did, Can you believe my name was the first among winners. If you're determined and believe in winning the lottery draws you can contact the great spell caster today to get your winning numbers!!!!

My Dear friends online, My name is kayler lawson and i live in USA, ohio, I have to give this miraculous testimony, which is so unbelievable until now. I had a problem with my Ex husband 6 years ago, which lead to our break up. I was not myself again, i felt so empty inside me, my love and financial situation became worst, until a close friend of mine told me about a spell caster who helped her in solving similar problem. He is known as DR.KEN .I email the spell caster and i told him my problems and i did what he asked of me, to cut the long story short. Before i knew what was happening , my husband gave me a call and told me that he was coming back to me i was so happy to have him back to me. The most interesting part of the story is that am pregnant. Thanks to DR.KEN for saving my marriage.

Continue your good work sir, If you are interested to contact the great spell caster, here is his email address:greatdrkenspelltemple@gmail.com or contact him on WhatsApp- +2348104557346
