2013 O'Byrne Cup, Walsh Cup, and other lesser Provincial Competitions Thread

Kicks off this weekend in earnest in Leinster with a large number of O Byrne Cup fixtures taking place tomorrow. Laois travel to Tullamore to take on Offaly. Westmeath come to O Moore Park Wednesday and Athlone IT visit on Sunday week.

Great to have it back :clap:

Best of luck to Leitrim in Elphin tomo :clap:


i d say ye will hammer the scallion aters tommorow, my boy blue!

Wexford to play DIT could be a tough assignemnt for Aidan O’Brien in his first game in charge

Playing it in kilanerin was a bit of a concession. Should bring the cunts down to your end of the county.

a concession, its a fuckin joke, some wexofrd lads will prob have to travel as dit…should have hauled them to horeswood or eve Fethard…

didnt hear a starting team or anything like… cant make it, but will get a good low down on it tomorrow form a source close to the panel…

Offaly winners yesterday over a very experimental Laois side. A 3 point win, but in all honesty, the margin was more than 3 points. Niall McNamee was unplayable and still missed a penalty. Doubt McNulty will be too bothered just yet, no ballwork done, but one or two positives in the return of McMahon and Booth. Few of the bigger names have quite a bit of rust to knock off still though.

UL are 7/4 to beat Waterford on Sunday. Will be having a cut off that

Waterford team, not much firepower there although they are fairly close to full strength

Waterford are fucked this year,maybe for a few years as their promising minor side from 2 years ago hasn’t come on anywhere near as expexted,that along with the losses of Molumphy and Mullane puts them right at the arse of the Munster pile!(bar Kerry)

Thought Ray Barry was a half-back.

Honan is unlikely to feature tomorrow but should be fit for the start of the Fitz

Like the look of the following tomorrow,

Louth to beat Dublin @ 9/2
Kildare to beat Offaly @ 3/10

UL to beat Waterford in the W/C @ 7/4
UCD to beat Laois in the Walsh Cup @ 4/9

The 4 in an accum pays 27/1. Louth is a good price too considering they are at home & on a good run of form so far so well worth a punt on their own too.

The Hurling double looks tempting also @ just under 3/1.

Some young fella called Johnny Johnston has kicked 7 points today for Kildare.
