Why would you have a problem with either party? it's a free labour market. UR are entitled to try to hire someone they see as a good fit for them and PD is entitled to do what he feels is best for his career.

Apparently he's playing really well and is one of their main players now.
Would be amazing if he's come back at some point

Yeah he seems to be flying from the little snippets I get on twitter. Fair play to him though, living the dream over there getting paid to play sport.

Think McCrory and Cavanagh the only players in their 30s in the squad.

Harte, Coney, McNabb and Mattie were all in their final year of minor in 2008 so either are now 29 or will turn 29 at some point this year.

Morgan, McCann, McAliskey and McNamee were all a year after that so are 28 or will turn 28 at some point this year.

Sludden, Richie Donnelly, HP McGeary and Grugan were minor in 2010 so are 27 or will turn 27 at some point this year.

McCurry, McClure, C McCann, Loughran, Brendan Burns are the year after that so would be 26 or will be at some point this year.

K McGeary, McLaughlin, R Brennan, Meyler, Hampsey and Cassidy were all in their final year u21 in 2015 so are 25 or will be at some point this year. Mark Bradley is in this bracket too and I think Ronan McHugh also falls into that age bracket.

F Burns and McShane had another year u21 after that so would be 24 or will turn it at some point this year.

O'Donnell, Mulgrew, Rafferty and McKernan are all 22 or will be at some point this year.

Gallen and Kennedy were u20 last year so are 21 or will be at some point this year.


Not sure if I missed anybody?


I think the squad needs a fair bit of freshening up for next season - the likes of C McCann, McClure, Loughran, B Burns, R McHugh, McNabb, Coney, Grugan are some of the guys who have had a number of years on the panel at various stages over the years and never really looked like nailing a starting spot. Maybe some of them have something to offer but I think they might see the writing on the wall like Ronan O'Neill did earlier this year. They're all mid to late 20s so they should have established themselves by now.

I think we have a few good prospects around the midfield area. Gormley has been impressive for the u20s, I'd say Conn Kilpatrick would have got a call up only for a bad injury during the club championship last year. Mattie McGleenan's young lad looks like he will be a big prospect in a few years time. Paudie McNulty might come back in next year. So I'd say a few of C McCann, McClure and Grugan may opt out or be cut.

I think there are a lot of lads who probably deserve a chance in the county set up next winter - a few who have caught my eye apart from those listed above would be Michael O'Neill (Ardboe) Nathan Donnelly (Killyclogher) Paul Donaghy (Edendork) Ryan Coleman (Moy) Emmett McNabb (Dromore) and a few others.

Cheers for the full run down Angelo. Really useful info to have given to surprising difficulty there is to find a lot of players ages anywhere on line. I was going by minor and u21 teams years for a lot of them but it's still kinda guesswork to be exact.

Agree we need a few lads to come in. I meant I think it's going to be very hard for them to break onto the starting 15 at the moment as the lads on that Colm aside are all of a very good age profile but we need to keep on refreshing the panel. One good thing about the current squad is I don't think there's anyone there that Mickey will hold onto for too long past their use like perhaps he did with the 2008 AI winning team. If a young buck is good enough now he's getting his chance by and large.

Fair enough, I was thinking purely in terms of S&C not in match stuff.

That is a loss....when did that happen??.... I hadn't seen him around or mentioned alot lately...?

I heard on Newstalks podcast this morning I think so must have been just announced.

When does he take up that post then?

They didn't mention it iirc. Sure what does it really matter when he goes now. All the hard work in that area is already done for this year. Everything from here to the end of the Sr season is just topping up the hard work he and the players have already done.

The big positive I guess is that we know now in good time to get someone new in place for next year and we really need to target the very best that's out there. It's almost cliche now but or S&C really does allow us to be flat track bullies over teams just a little level below us and hopefully by the end of this summer it'll be what allows us to compete at the very top level.

Bit sad there's no Cork football fans on here and we have to resort to the Rossies coming in to try a stir a bit of craic up.

Aye forgot to mention that alright. Big loss for the camp but it's a no brainer really for a guy like him. 9-5 job in a FT professional environment and you'd hazard a guess that the pay is a fair bit better too. Wish him all the very best of luck with it.

Cork it is. Awful pity that game couldn't be played ahead of the Sr game in Croker.

Is this Darragh Canavan's last year at u20?

Was U17 in 2017 so you'd think he has another year. He was to turn 19 in 2019 but I don't know when so it'[s very hard to know.

I think he'll be in the Sr panel next year regardless.

If it's on it's on and you should go for it, regardless of what time in the game it is. But if it's not on then you're really only wasting possession by trying to force it.

If the game happened to be on all three channels I'd probably go Sky (providing Clerkin isn't on co-comm), then BBC and then I'd probably listen on the radio before watching RTE (slight sarcasm).

It's annoying but not half as annoying as players going all out for goals when there's still plenty of time to get points. Teams defending a  point lead with like 5 minutes left will tend to drop back a bit to protect against goal chances so why not use that to get into point range a bit easier and make some in roads. Often times at the end of a game it'll be easier to pick up 3/4 points against a packed defense than to gt a goal.
