Club Championships 2017


#1825

You have had a bad week Geoff. You won’t get any better by trying to take it out on limerick hurling. We are on the up baby.


#1826

Ardfinan.


#1827

That’s Apache country kid .


#1828

Do you genuinely believe that?


#1829

Yes. Ranked 8th or 9th at senior and stuck in 2nd division. The multiple games in new format will be valuable for a new young side to find their feet.


#1830

Good point.

Structure seems to be there. Hurlers seem to be there.

Is the brains there?


#1831

Ballybacon play in Goatenbridge you cunt of a man.


#1832

Not 100% sure on that point. Persisting with hegarty and hayes in the forwards does not inspire


#1833

I think Hayes is ok for another year in the forwards to find his feet at this level and I think he was brought in a year too soon but that’s done now . He will be a 6 long term but not at 19 or even 20 .

I am not sure if Hegarty is IC standard . Maybe a look at wing back but we have plenty better options there .


#1834

The match is being played at Ardfinan football pitch you cunt… At least that’s where we played Kenmare


#1835

It’s Ardfinnan you cunt of a man.


#1836

In fairness, in the one game of note that we won all year…Hegarty was our best forward away to Cork in the league. Hayes throughout the year was probably our standout forward…both were underage stars facing the ball…but thats where we are at the moment.

None of our natural forwards outshined them arguably bar Peter Casey and David Dempsey at times


#1837

Lk were poor this year . Hayes was good enough and Hegarty only fair when assessed over the year . Both were very good at u21 but frankly I 'd judge adult club hurling as a better indicator . Hayes will ultimately get a run at 6 and I think he will be good there . Hegarty deserves a chance in defence but there may be better options there .


#1838

Catherines have Daniel Mangan and Brian Mulcahy who play for Imokilly, Mangan was a Cork Minor (big and strong but a bit of a mollocker) while Shane O’Brien was a Cork Minor for two years at corner back, and looked the real deal back then, but injuries seemed to have fucked him.

Brian Dillons have Tomas Lawrence and Cillian Brosnan who have both played for Cork intermediates. They used to have Darragh Rodgers who played full back for the Cork Minors five or so years ago. Looked a bit of prospect back then but also dropped off the radar.


#1839

Were Darragh Rodgers and Cormac Lynch playing?

Kilcar conceding a walkover in the U21 because they have an Ulster game a week later. Unreal.


#1841

Kilcar ?? Utter cuntish behaviour by them .


#1842

I can see it both ways. They have 10 players involved in both. They havent won an Donegal in something like 20-30 years. At the end of the day, an U21 is a grand yoke to have, but its a bit mickey mouse all the same. They will be hoping that by failing to fulfill the fixture, public opinion will be on their side and they’ll get a refixture in deepest darkest December. I can see this working out for them really. Possibly tough on their opponents obviously, but I think a Club on a provincial run should get any help going.

Worth remembering they played a Div 1 final a week after their county final as well, and I’m not aware of what sort of run of games they were on up to that point. In recent years, the Donegal SFC has been a bit jokeshop in its execution.


#1843

Catherines won… Report needed.


#1844

What about the other u21 players?

Its a farcical snowflake decision.

I hope it backfires too. U21 players thrive on loads of games.

Tell them have a look st Kanturk. A much older team changing sports every week.

Fucking gobshites
