Agree with you Galwayman.
Would help if admission was cut to €10 and try to generate a bit of a crowd.
Same goes for the Ring, Rackard and Meagher  finals.

Better team won on the day but still plenty to be positive about. You'd think Sean Andy Kelly would be called up to the senior squad given his performances against Kerry & Dublin and especially given our problems in the full back line.

Some talk he may be off to the states for the Summer. Possible he just made other plans when he wasn't part of the senior panel during the league which did include Daly, Cooke and McDaid.

The most improved county at u21 over the last 10 years. Dublin improve players in the 18-21 bracket like no other county. For those who think that Dublin have a golden generation think again they aren't going away.

A wonderfully financed regime aren't they.

A supposedly limited bunch they were supposed to be but yet won an u21 title comfortably.
