Limerick GAA - the drive for five


#5612

I was at the game. Barry o conmell was fullback id say on shane Bennett. He done the divil that night.


#5613

Waterford win relatively few games in Walsh Park.


#5614

What a year to be a season ticket holder.


#5615

23 years to the very day since the last Munster championship game there.


#5616

bennet got a hat trick and was only 16 I think.

We had a poor enough team looking back at it but there was a lot expected of them at the time. Huge hype around the Dow even then


#5617

That was a great atmosphere. They let 17,000 in to that.


#5618

Was Stephen rather than Shane though.

Considering how we had done in minor between 2005 and then, it was a good team. 4 or 5 All-Ireland medallists from it isn’t the worst.

We had bate Cork in the semi which was where the hype was coming from, I suppose. Mike Fitz & Kevin O’Brien would have been on it too. Dan Morrissey should have been full-back and BOC centre-back or midfield.


#5619

I dont ever remember hype about dowling. I remember hannon being the talk of the county for a few years alright. The only lad since shaughs there was real hype about.


#5620

Laois drew with Carlow in Dr Cullen


#5621

#5622

There was loads of hype for Dowling. Won the feile skills and played harty at 15


#5623

The Dow walked all over Cork that year at minor in the Gaelic Grounds before we played Waterford.


#5624

I guess i saw him play a fair bit. Where as hannon i dont ever remember playing against or seeing him play. I remember the dow playing centre back and hannon centre forward for ard scoil ris.


#5625

Did not play in cork that year? I remember they played cork two years in a row. 2011 and 2012. Lost to waterford after extra time and clare in extra time.


#5626

As well


#5627

There was a cracking harty final in the gaelic grounds when tony kelly took them on.

Cian lynch and ronan lynch had the hype as well.


#5628

I guess it’s different now with twitter and so much online coverage.


#5629

Cathal O’Neill is the current underage prodigy.


#5630

Are you high?


#5631

There’s as many of them that don’t make it as do.

Magner Flynn was supposed to be the greatest thing since sliced bread 4 years ago.
