Hurling Discussion / Re: Kilkenny
« on: August 11, 2022, 03:41:41 PM »
Hurling is at an interesting juncture because the 3 top teams, namely Cork, Tipp and KK who between them have something over 80% of all All Irelands , are all in a state of change.

Senior All Ireland last won

Cork 2005
Kilkenny 2015
Tipp 2019

U20/21 last won

Cork 2021
Kilkenny 2022
Tipp 2019

Big 3 have won 5 of the last 5 titles

Minor

Cork 2021
Kilkenny 2014
Tipp 2022

big 3 have won 3 of the last 5 titles

They haven't gone gone away yet if they can translate underage into adult

Kilkenny are 2 years behind Man Utd.

They are like the Kerry team who could not beat Tyrone or the other ones who could not beat Down.

There will be huge pressure to deliver an all Ireland imo. Out of respect for Cody there  issue was probably shelved but 8 years is massive for them and on the slippery slope to Cork...

Hard to know. One thing for sure is that there's good hurlers in KK.  Moreso than in any other county.

Lyng will get time, if they want to do it right.  Style needs to adjust a bit yet but work in progress.

I mean who would have reckoned, at the start of the year, that they'd win Leinster again and run Limerick as close as they've been ever run. Not me.

Point is they will always be there or thereabouts as they have the hurlers.

As a student of kk hurling they are in trouble with both the  quantity and quality of hurler they are producing

Cody getting them to an all ireland this year would rank close to the top of his greatest achievements

If he had won it, it would have been his greatest 

Reid started in 2008 with canning Callanan and Horgan,he’s committed to one more year but time waits for no man

I agree that if they had won it this year, it'd be No. 1 as his best.

They have the hurlers in KK - that's a fact of life. They will always be getting to Leinster Finals and All-Ireland Finals, whether that be minor, U20 and Senior on a regular basis.

no Senior All Ireland since 2015

heading into their 8th year without an All Ireland constitutes a famine in KK,Their longest period without one was 9 years.

More worrying is the fact that the conveyor belt has broken down on them 8 years without a minor title and they were waiting 13 years for an u20/21 before they won it this year.

if the warning lights aren't flashing at a Cork style crisis, they should be

Forristal/Buckley u14 qualifiers was moved to Wexford centre of excellence due to what had happened in Thurles last night

Tipperary didn’t turn up

Laois A were competitive v Wexford but got a trimming against Cork

Laois B got the mother and father of beatings off both Cork and Wexford teams

When you see 1 mentor over each laois  team versus the setup of other counties

Laois would be better off staying at home until they sort their shit out

No offence to either the youngsters or the mentors who have taken up this thankless poisoned chalice

I see where we played Kilkenny at the weekend. I think it was U15. Any idea how it went? The Development Squad qualifiers are on next weekend.

U14s it was

Beaten by KK

Tony Forristal/Sonny Buckley u14 All Ireland starting this weekend

You wouldn’t be too hopeful for success given that u14 squad only came together in May

Was that our A team against their A team or was it one of those Even teams blitzes they have now.

Kk had 25 odd and Laois had 45 odd

Played one game

Pauric Maher going in as with Cahill and Bevans.

Good choice for them, and with him not playing now, he'll get the fire going.

Declan Laffan (who managed Laois club to 2-in-a-row) and T.J. Ryan (not the Limerick one) in the backroom team also.

Cahill seems to be well prepared. Nearly too well - I wonder was he tapped up a lot earlier than people think or say he was?

He wasn’t tapped up and it was a lot earlier

Lads on here seem to missing the point completely looking for a name to manage

The first thing the name will do when interviewed will have a list of what he wants and a budget to go with it

Tipperary spent €1.5m winning an all ireland in 19 under Sheedy with a backroom team of 29 and that was just what appeared in their county board accounts,it didn’t include donations from outside the county board

Davy normally needs a second bus for his backroom team

Laois doesn’t have the access to this level of funds and even if it did,the likes of a Davy would bleed the  juvenile development budgets in a county white to fund the senior operation

Christ the names being mentioned here dont look too inspiring. Ryan O Dwyer they can't be serious. I wouldn't even be happy with Tommy dunne. He's not that highly regarded in tipp.
We need to be ambitious here. Anthony Daly, Derek McGrath, Eamonn O Shea, Liam Sheedy, Derek Lyng, Davy Fitz, Get Eddie back. Lads with pedigree at management, not just taking a chance on a lad that could play a bit. This appointment is important. Id like good laois selectors in then too such as Tommy fitz, Eamonn Jack man, Niall Rigney

That gave me a laugh anyways

Davy Fitz,Daly,Sheedy,EOS even McGrath wouldnt be interested in a Joe McDonagh team

Tommy Dunne is highly regarded in Tipp as a coach having been involved in their last 2 All Ireland wins,its doubtful though that he would set foot in a set up that would have a fraction of the resources that the likes of Tipp have at their disposal.

I hope Im wrong

is Declan Laffan worth a call?

Yeah he’s playing for Cashel King Cormac’s still as far as I know . I’d be very surprised if he got the gig . Limited managerial experience apart from some club team in Meath .
Pat Ryan from Cork who managed them to  2 u-20 all Irelands was nominated but seemingly not interested.

ODwyer is with Liam Mellows in Galway

There wasn’t a hope of getting Pat Ryan as he was odds on to take over when Kingston fell on his sword and the Cork CB had him lined up anyways
