    Five different winners in the last six years. Considering how important the FAI Cup is, it is great to see it spread around.

    Got me thinking, instead of putting more prize money into the league, would it be more beneficial to bump the prize money of the different rounds of the FAI cup? Might have a better trickle-down effect than league prize money.

    That's genuinely mad. Anyone know what the issue was ?

Boyd had a bad one, that's him one week he is a very effective handful or struggles the next week getting frustrated. O'Driscoll is an honest lad but hasn't looked comfortable in the defence and has been on the bench for the last while I'll be surprised if he is back with us next season

    Yeah it was only afterwards when I heard that he was on Shels bench. Pity for him
    Gary Cronin is he the right man to manage Longford Town?

    Shels are capable of playing much better. There had been very little between us in the four previous games this season, and I was shocked at how poor they were on the day.

    We'd said before the match that an early goal would be needed to open the game up, but in truth, I don't think that would have mattered. We controlled the game from the start, and Shels didn't look like they'd score at all. Graydon starting was a risk, but it certainly paid off. Could have got MOTM.

    Great day down at Lansdowne, biggest away Derry crowd I've seen. First time I've been in the upper tiers (my ST is south lower), and it's actually a lovely spot to watch the match from. Great to see fans of other clubs there too. Had thought the €20 price may have put people off, but the good weather liked helped with that.
    Have you ever won the treble?

    Interesting - if the same format is followed next season, with the 20 League clubs in Round One, with the four Junior Cup semi-finalists and 14 out of the last 16 of the Intermediate involved at least in the prelims, then there could be two ex-league clubs competing next year, in Home Farm or Drumcondra, and the winner is guaranteed to be so:
