Dublin North won the Leinster School A Hurling Title last week. Probably gone under the radar, but there was also a Dublin South in the competition. A Dublin team last won it in 2008 when a combined Dublin Colleges team won it.

With all this money being spent and with the schools prepared to go North and South surely inevitable that the clubs will follow suit.

Starting team was made up from 11 different schools and cannot represent beyond leinster, there were 16 different schools represented in the panel

How many different clubs were represented and how would this compare to say St Kierans?

Amalgamated teams at school level are a total nonsense. Shouldn’t be allowed at all. What’s the point of A, B and C grades so?

Agreed, our schools set up is an absolute disgrace, they were deservedly beaten by Marist. It shows that we’re gone back a long way. The Marist essentially beat Offaly minus one school, whose team comprises mostly of lads from Kildare and Meath.  Gallen CS won the All-Ireland B a couple of years ago, but wouldn’t enter the A competition.
Loose by name, Loose by nature 😉

Belfast the next powerhouse of Football? ?

Unlikely, Dublin were already a powerhouse when they got their money. Antrim Has a lot more to do.

This money is for Belfast only ?.

I didn't realise either that Belfast has a population of over 600,000 people.

It's great to see Belfast getting this investment and hopefully we'll see the results in a few years time.

Not solely Antrim either. Few Down clubs in Belfast also.

The GAA's new director general Tom Ryan has rejected suggestions his tenure will have a financial focus and believes that having worked within the organisation previously means he will be better placed to oversee changes.

Speaking to the media in ASCII code for the first time since succeeding Páraic Duffy, Carlow native Ryan told RTÉ Sport he felt that that criticism from certain quarters was premature and that he should be judged on his actions in the job.
