CB away to Dublin champions in 1st round of Leinster. Very difficult to see them having a similar run to last season and they wonít be underestimated this time around. Wish them the best of luck though.

I fancy Abbeyleix to have a real run at the Leinster intermediate though. Theyíve a good draw and have a pathway through to the final as I think they avoid KK/Dublin/Wexford side. Hopefully they give a good account of themselves at Senior next year as well.

Just looked at the fixtures there, looks like CB will have the harder run in Leinster again like last year. Dublin champs, Wexford champs and you assume BHS would be awaiting them in the final if they were to get through those ties. It would be very hard to take all those scalps again this year.

Agreed . Was at a league match late summer over there. Lot of really good work been done at Park/Timahoe from underage upwards .

PRT are making slow but steady progress
Beaten in Junior A Final
Beaten in Junior c Final

At underage
Beaten in u13 A1 final
In u15 A1 final
In minor B final

They need to push on to intermediate in the next year or 2 but they have a steady stream of young lads coming in

The Harps are a head scratcher

Why the best juvenile club of the last 5-10 years canít translate itís success at juvenile into being at least a permanent fixture at senior

Congratulations to C/B they have shown the way,they are now enjoying the fruits of 20 years of hard labour

Very tough draw for CB alright. But they are becoming a very experienced outfit and I think they'll give the Dublin champs plenty of it.
Just hard to see Leinster not being won by Kilkenny champions.
Well I could keep it above
But then it wouldn't be sky anymore

A lot of the Harps underage success of the last 5-10 years you could argue has been built on quantity of good players as opposed to maybe been driven by 2/3 exceptional players on any of those successful teams.  Therefore a lot of those lads stepping up to senior are not necessarily going to improve or add greatly to their senior team. What you need from your underage teams are one or two 'exceptional' players coming through every year that will go straight in and improve the senior team that is currently there. A lot of what the Harps have brought through are of a similar standard to what is maybe already there-hence they don't appear necessarily to be making any improvement despite their great efforts. 


I admire what the Harps are doing-they get great numbers and keep their players interested and involved. It will hopefully pay off for them if they continue on the path that they are.

Agreed . Was at a league match late summer over there. Lot of really good work been done at Park/Timahoe from underage upwards .

Let's face it - getting beaten in two Junior finals is a serious backward step for PRT. They were relegated from Intermediate last year, and to not be able to make the step back up straight away must be a worry for them. Plus, as an amalgamation, they probably have fewer hurlers now than when they were two separete clubs? Maybe you could confirm that, Clonadmad?! And with football going well for Ratheniska, that clearly takes precedence - so much so, I think, that it's almost impossible to play both for a committed senior footballer.

Yes, the underage is in decent shape - as it generally is in Ratheniska - but this never seems to translate to the adult hurling team. Why is that? Drawing from too much of a football area?

All of that is fair comment Iíd say

Iím nearly certain this year they had a second adult hurling team where for the past few years they had just the one

But Iím open to correction

Yes, PRT had two adult teams this year. They did enter two last year, but were stuck for numbers come the championship, as far as I recall. However, when they were individual clubs, they'd certainly have had a team each, and most years one or other - if not both - would have entered two teams. I mean, as an amalgamation they really shouldn't be struggling to put out two teams, and probably should have scope for a third. But in reality, the amalgamation just freed up a lot of lads to concentrate solely on the football. Sadly.

Lot of senior clubs looking for new managers in 2023.
I believe R/E parted company with Jimmy dunne last night
B/K, The Harps, clough/ballacolla in the market.. Possibly Rosenallis and Camross too.
Should be interesting
