O’Byrne Cup, Walsh Cup and other sundry pre season provincial tournaments

We’re back baby

2022 O’Byrne Cup

2022 Walsh Cup


One year we will avoid Meath in the O’Byrne Cup.

There is no worse experience than watching Laois and Meath in the OBC.

Playing in it perhaps.


Cork won’t take part in 2022 Munster Senior Hurling League

Cork will be the sole absentee from the 2022 Munster SHL, which returns after a two-year Covid-enforced hiatus

Cork will not be partaking in next month’s Munster Senior Hurling League, the Irish Examiner can confirm.

A team holiday to Tenerife at the beginning of next month, on account of their All-Ireland SHC final appearance earlier this year, is the reason behind the Cork decision not to participate in the pre-season competition.

It is not known if Cork gave consideration to fielding a development or U20 team in the Munster SHL, as the Kerry footballers did for the 2020 McGrath Cup when their senior panel was out of the country on a team holiday.

Cork will be the sole absentee from the 2022 Munster SHL, which returns after a two-year Covid-enforced hiatus.

The draws for the Munster SHL and McGrath Cup are expected to be released by Munster GAA later in the week.


I see the National League fixtures are out today and there seems to a round pencilled in for February 13th which is Club Finals day at Croke Park.

What the hell is that about?

Calendar is tight .

It just seems totally and utterly wrong that Tipperary are set to face Kilkenny on the same Sunday as the Club Finals.

All those mickey mouse league matches should be played off on the Friday night and Saturday.

The GAA’s reluctance to use Friday nights at Inter County is bizarre. Players take Mondays off after Sunday IC matches so the “lads have to work excuse” is a bit irrelevant.

It up to the authorities to re arrange the league games . They will .

Of course there could well be no fans allowed in

Woolie fuming.

Maybe Tony Brosnan wanted to play a few minutes for Kerry tonight.

Wouldn’t be like Woolie to shoot first and ask questions later.

One change to the Clare team named last night - Daragh Lohan replaces David McInerney

Clare 0-1 Waterford 0-2 after 7 minutes, loose enough as to be expected. Gary Cooney and Colin Dunford to the fore so far

Waterford fist pumping in January :grin:

The pitch in Cusack Park looks in great nick and hardly a puff of wind. But it is low quality stuff, plenty of aimless balls and heavy/loose touches.

Waterford lead 5 to 3 at the first water break

Hurling match breaking out since the first water break. 6 a piece now. Austin Gleeson has sprayed a few lovely balls around the place, mosst of Waterford’s best play has come through him

Rodgers skins the corner back and goals

Clare 1-10 Waterford 0-10 at h/t
