Champs Boden to have too much fire

O'TOOLE'S ruled the airways against Pat's of Palmerstown. The new footballing in-word is dirty ball. The Larriers are good at winning it.

Andy Morris and Mick Healy were busy at midfield. Richie Walker, Ger O'Meara and Derek Farrelly also put in the yards. O'Meara in particular has also an eye for the posts. The big question is: will Eamon Fennell line out? It is thought highly unlikely that he will.

The champions will thread with care to the North County. O'Toole's are a side that make the most of themselves. Dynamic Dublin midfielder Michael Darragh Macauley has been the talk of the parish - he'll surely get an All Star nomination at least. In the last round Danny Davey belonged in the Electric Light Orchestra. Ian Clarke and the exciting Darragh Nelson are sound operators. What team would be without Conal Keaney. Andrew Kerin can nick goals. Boden's greater firepower to tell.
