West north west were hammered by a North east side short of o dempseys and coutwood players

West north west were always going to be the weakest team in this format and it doesnt seem fair that Ballyfin a weak senior club is their only senior football team .

Only Tyrell from camross and ryan mulanney from castletown are playing from the five or six hurling clubs so they are left to scrape a team from young guys from the Rock mountmellick Rosenallis and Ballyfin whos 3 best and county players are away in sean moore darragh connolly and james finn

Emo or port should been included with them they had only 15 yesterday which defeats the purpose of this excercise everyone there yesterday including the heath and emo people i was chatting were of the same that west north west team were always going be tye weakest and most disjointed.

Needs to be tweeked for next year .

Some good football on show from the north east with too many to mention evan costello evan keane and colm murphy really stood out in the second half for the north east .

Eoin keogh was the  best for the loosers with colm coss and james moore doing okay in spells
Ryan mullaney tried his best too

Not too many on the bank to watch this but still few pound more for the kolbe centre where people were being generously giving alot more than the two euro entrance fee being charged.

West north west looked the most disjointed out of the 4 teams but the Moore chap was a standout .

Games had a nice bite about them but in truth it was the county men or ex county men like a meaney which stood out.

I suppose if it added 3 players to the panel and maybe a returning meaney / boyle /kehoe /or Merdith then we would be stronger going forward..

Was few lads i couldnt make out in the second game which were good one half back on the south east team in particular

Back to the thread hope courtwood do it.
Gaels in general sits uneasy with me.
Gaels in intermediate is wrong
Gaels needed to prop up a town the size of mountmellick is crazy.

I tend to agree go on the wood

Clonaslee gone ...that will surely be the end of that madness with annanough

4 points flattered clonaslee ballyfin should won it by more always in control

Strabally slightly unlucky against joes greg ramsbottom had great chance to sneak it ..

I said portlaoise would win every game by at least ten points far ive been right

Those Tipp, Limerick, Cork teams etc will reconvene in November and follow a 12-14 week s&c programme before beginning training 2-3 times a week next year, our lads wonít have that continuity
It will be meet up again next spring for an hour of a Saturday.

We have no overarching plans to bring a groups through improving them all the time

Me and my three sisters are at an age where, between us, we have four teenage sons and two twelve year olds all of whom play hurling. Three of the boys are currently on development squads so basically we're on the road the whole time and I see first hand a lot of what's going on. Last year, The U14s did 8 weeks of S+C work in Heywood before Christmas and 8 after Christmas (as U15s). That's a bit more than "meeting up next spring for an hour". The current 15 year olds are an excellent group, both the players and management. Their results and progress are of the highest order. This year's 14s mentors carried 48 at any one time. Overall, between injuries, call ups etc over 50 players were involved in a county set up. They all improved dramatically and they were very competitive in their games. All players, including the very weakest, were treated very fairly and got lots of game time each day.

Our biggest problems i think are:

1. Our playing population is just too small. Contrast our numbers with Tipp, Cork and Galway.

2. Dual issue. While players are encouraged to play both the simple fact of the matter is you can't be a top level hurler if you're equally committed to anything else.

3. Our Secondary Schools are just not operating at a high enough level.

Zoom while I agree with you on the u15ís in terms of players and mentors,the one issue I would have is that didnít run trials for anyone outside the group this year or last.

The 3 points that you have raised are correct,how would you overcome or try and bridge the gap?

Nothing can be done about point one and very little can be done about point two as we are a genuine dual county. I'm not in favour of making lads choose too early. Point three is the one where we can make an impact. It will  need serious planning though as a number of our schools simply don't have enough interest in or backing for GAA

Point 3 is nearly the most mportant because thats were lads the the real bug for the game and you play with Club rivals against other county men!

Another very close battle between Kilcruise and Ballyroan last night. 2 injury time points to win it for Ballyroan. Kilcruise kicked plenty of wides in the first half.

Great game ...God Chris conway rolled back the years for a fifteen minute spell some going at 40

They are too far apart for this to be a long term amalgamation . Maybe Annanough should look to Timahoe or Park Ratheniska or the Heath ? Would Clonaslee look to Kilcavan ? Or Ballyfin ? I assume Rosenallis isnít an option due to rivalry up there .
Annanough, Timahoe and Park Ratheniska would have the makings of a fine senior set up. All could retain their own junior and intermediate teams and go together in the senior.

Any Annanough lads who wanted to hurl could go play hurling with the Carlow lads as well ...New Jerseys would be the order of the day ...

Carlow Tops maybe blue shorts and socks  :P

Fair play is right but how many champs is there at the same weight.....wby was it not televised...

Is this as big or comparable  to Mcguigan back in the day?

I don't know or maybe i don't understand

90% of social media (gaa people mostly neutrals) no matter what platform you check the last two days say Monaghan were very hard done by hard to argue that they were.

Tyrone were steeped they didn't play well and a fortunate goal and questionable decisions got them over the line .

Monaghans early nerves and lack of composure late on along with referee Nolan robbed them of their first all ireland apperance in 88 years

They must be sick.

Ima stop you right there....

So if a vote was taken it doesn't count ha ha.....

Can Tyrone fans not just be happy that they are in the final they got the rub of the green as regards the ref and the whole country pratically thinks the same ...

End of story

Nolan's woeful performance on sunday has robbed him of any chance of an all ireland in the future.
