Yeah thats the competition. I remember seeing teams playing in it years ago and remember going and watching Portglenone playing a year they got to the final of it but that was going back a few years. Maybe BS can recall that time. Good to see it still going but it doesnt seem to get alot of interest. Serious bit of travelling for glorified friendlies though some clubs may find it useful

we used to enter it for the hurling but dont anymore. pointless games played on pitches that werent fit for the games and you had teams not play the final group games when they were out of the running.
hurl like f**k boi!

U would have to feel sorry for Lenny given the artilce in the Irish news today given the constant turnover of players he has to deal with - very hard to build a team and understandings without a settled Team

There has been a high turnover of players alright and the likes of Fitzy and Paddy Mc Cormack were two of his best players last year, their loss is substantial..but a good argument can be made that we have the strongest panel available for some while. It was a good article though and you couldn't argue with one word of it.

Sunday is going to be a good test of our ability to get out of this division, and Wexford won't be anyones pushover. Hopefully a good crowd can get up to Glenavy and get behind the team and help them settle down for two very important points to take to Sligo the following week.

And the leagues still won’t be wrapped up until November.

It is a bit early alright but If it’s done according to plan then it will be finished by by August and then championship played in August and Sept. That’s a 6 month league season which is fair enough when you compare it to other field sports like soccer and rugby.
