Junior A Football 2023

Killavullen for a county final is a bold call.
I agree that it is, on paper anyway. But, The winners of Avondhu will come through the very weak side of the county draw and make the final. I’m tipping Killavullen in Avondhu. My contacts there say they are a young team that have good coaches.
Canovee are a bold tip too as almost everyone’s favs for Muskerry & to win the county despite it being 12 years since they last won a final.
Charleville are mentioned a lot as county winners despite being an out and out hurling club, not a young team, having never won a Junior football county and only won 2 Junior A north corks in 50 years.
So in summary, the Junior A is wide open. There are about 4 if not 6 West Cork teams that have realistic ambitions to win this years County junior A championship.
 
Castlemagner 3-17 Kanturk 1-2 in Duhallow Junior football championship played this evening in Castlemagner, brutal conditions for football Kanturk very poor.

Crazy that any game went ahead tonight. When you see St. Finbarr's v St. Michael's being postponed, Cork City's FAI Cup match being postponed and the Races at Mallow Racecourse being called off, you'd be thinking a Junior football match would follow suit. The Duhallow board should have stepped in here and move the game by a day or two or to a date that suits. I see the score was like 2-10 to 0-1 at half time. It wouldn't have surprised me if the ref called a halt to the game at that stage at Kanturk's request but fair play to them to continuing to play to the bitter end.

Fair predictions really

Couldn't see Colligs second team holding Kilmichael but hard to predict second teams from match to match
Kilmichael 0.8 Ballincollig 1-4 poor enough standard as can be seen from scoreline with Peter Kelleher coming on as a sub with 15 to go and he got the winner from a mark one minute into added time .

Ballincollig had a great chance a minute later when they had a one v one and maybe in hindsight taking his point he went for goal and just missed the far post .. Can’t see kilmichael being mid cork winners but at least they are through to quarter final.
