Who’s the manager ?
Edit . Clontarf lad

Anyone from Waterford know is Cummins of Brickey rangers injured @Fagan_ODowd

That’s a strong-looking Cork team.

Nobody got within 10 points of them at minor three years ago, albeit it was a Covid championship - very much the team to beat.

I was very impressed with KK when they beat a weak Wexford team last week.

Harry Shine, Gearoid Dunne and Cillian Doyle have experience with their seniors. Jeff Neary is a class act at 4. Plenty of other good hurlers like Shorthall, Corcoran, Marty Murphy and Hackett who have 2/3 years of KK adult hurling under their belt.

I think the 9/4 to win Leinster is great value.

Agree with that. Plenty of good hurlers didn’t even Make the first 24. Think they’ll have too much physicality for offaly if they meet them.
Of course galway are never bad either.

never heard of a club called An Sean Pobal, calling Fagan

Deise Gaeltacht club, @Fagan_ODowd barely acknowledges the West Waterford crowd anyhow

Old Parish. Neighbouring parish of An Rinn and Ardmore. Very small club.
At under age they join with An Rinn and play as An Gaeltacht.

Old Parish only have a senior club themselves in hurling the last 3 years. After 20 odd years with out one. Won the junior C county title last year after losing the final in the first 2 years back.
They always have a senior football team but play junior football in that.


It’s a strong team with lots of talent but a lot of the forwards are fairly windy, particularly the likes of O’Leary and Healy. I’d start Adam O’Sullivan, class hurler.

Big issue is if the backs get injuries, we look like we lack depth their big time. Rookie center-back, Wilk out injured and Tobin/O’Sullivan just coming back from from injuries.

I’ve a nephew starting for the Tipperary minor hurlers v Cork tonight.

The extended family is somewhat conflicted regarding their support.


Clare 9-5 up 23 mins

13 to 7 at the small whistle

A proud day.


21-12 injury time. Clare comfortable

Tipperary very impressive so far. The young fella isn’t disgracing us at least…



Looks like the 20s game is potentially off or at least not at the venue it’s meant to be on?

Could this be played on a plastic pitch?

On in Sixmilebridge?
