In a  lot of the strong hurling counties,kids are playing in class leagues and parish leagues at lunchtime and this isn't just kids in 5th and 6th class.

More CB support along with input from the local club,needs to be given to the schools,a lot of  teachers have no grounding  in GAA.

Laois minor hurlers beat Dublin in Leinster minor hurling league today, 2-13 to 1-13. Big change from the Laois schools game back in January!

According to the Dublingaa website it was the minor team. Where did you get u17 from?

According to Reservoir Dubs site, it was the B team that played Laois. The A team was supposed to play Clare, but it was cancelled.

A young lad who went to the game thought it was the U17 team as they physically did not look as strong or polished as one would expect from a Dublin minor hurling team. As mentioned above, the Dublin hurling forum have called it the B team. I think it's important to point out that we are not strong at minor hurling this year in case anyone is building their hopes up. In fact, it is the weakest team in at least 5 years. Nevertheless there are a couple of nice hurlers on the team.

Minor footballers get eviscerated by Cork, it gets talked away on here as them missing loads of players. Minor hurlers beat Dublin, we talk that away as well, saying arrah its an U17 Dublin development team who had to get a few U12's to make up the numbers.

I dont give a f**k, thats a slightly heartening result, regardless.

Il put my colours to the mast here. I'm currently involved with the Minor set up and what I have to say is, they are as honest a bunch as iv come across, genuine in training and looking to achieve and get better. So for all those outside of the setup. Downtheroad Try bring some positivity and rationale to your statements with respect to this. How do you know that they cant be the best minor team we have ever had!!!!
