Club Championships 2018


#1381

Tooreen from Mayo won it last year. Ballyhaunis brought Ahascragh to a replay the year before. It is a massive advantage though, yes


#1382

@maroonandwhite is aggressively refuting an argument nobody made. The very best of TFK on show here.


#1383

to be fair Galway have won the most Senior Hurling All Irelands by county. Again, this is because the winners of Galway don’t have to worry about getting through a provincial championship.


#1384

He a veddy, veddy angry man. He no happy unless he fight.


#1385

There is that, but it also a very competitive and quality depth championship. They may not have won as many AI titles coming through another province, but they would be at the top end of it.


#1386

They are in the shadow of the big dogs over the road. In both directions.


#1387

Does Charleville border Kilmallock or does effin block that ??


#1388

Ballyhea & NTS ??


#1389

42 but at least 2 of those are football only and have corresponding hurling clubs. Muckalee and Kilmoganny are football only and the corresponding hurling clubs are St. Martins and Dunnamaggin.


#1390

Fortunately blocked by Effin. Kind of a disinfectant barrier.


#1391

Even Bruree have won more than Charleville.


#1392

So your ‘argument’ was that galway have never won a junior club and have a poor record in intermediate. Thats not really an argument more a statement of the obvious. You didn’t want any discussion or debate or reasoning why that is? Just a few likes and silent nods?

I made a similarly factual statement about wexford hurling and you got very emotional.

You’re entire hypothesis, if i can call it that was that it was a shock to see big underdogs oranmore win. You’ve referenced this a few times. But there was a two point handicap and charleville were slight, not strong favourites. Natural after beating the kk champions in the semi.

Who’s really wrong here is @the_man_himself, he didn’t say ‘going by the history of galway clubs in the intermediate all Irelands, and ignoring that bias, youd have to fancy charleville’ . He actually said’ charleville will destroy them’ having never seen oranmore and id wager charleville play. Pro munster bias? Anti galway jealousy (yes)? Either way i hope he doesn’t rush to judgement as quickly when he’s washing cars in the tipperary town service centre


#1393

To be honest I think they will be a good senior team for a while . Very young .


#1394

100 posts of absolute nonsense and poor @Rocko struggling to pay for the memory card to keep up with ye.


#1395

Was told they had to win yesterday to go straight into the cork senior championship, to further brighten yere day


#1396

Harsh on gman. He just backed the wrong horse


#1397

No so . I have no quarrel with Charleville as I have no contact with the place as such .


#1398

Why does every comment have to be part of some county rivalry with you? Its very weird


#1399

What made you think charleville would destroy, not just beat, destroy, oranmore? In a game where they were 2 point favourites in the bookies. County rivalry?


#1400

Because I’ve seen Galway intermediate hurling games and the standard was shocking
