Donoghue is being too quick to get rid of players who still have something to offer. This puts a lot of pressure on the younger players.

Good to see Liam get rid of the ringleaders who ousted previous managers.  You wonder would Mayo management have the same balls  to get rid of players rather let them pick the team especially their club mates?

Galway have a big year ahead of them or otherwise they could hit the doldrums but then Wexford Limerick are in the same boat. Changes of management because of player power (especially non performing players) wont make it easy for managets to have atwo/three year development plan.
Warning. Don't try this at home unless in the company of a responsible adult

What province will they be in?

They should just transfer into Ulster and do a home/away deal

I think they're better suited to Leinster, but they are shockingly badly treated by the Leinster Council.

What is to hinder Galway getting a home fixture every once in a while? If you're happy to invite them in, at least have the decency to let them compete on a level playing field.

Also,
   Its the GAA who need to get their finger out in relation to the other age groups as Galway going full tilt into Leinster has implications for hurling in Ulster in a big way!

The money situation is a joke  . Galway have made the Leinster championship more interesting and more competitive. And all they get is plámás.

It's a pity there is no similar team to do the thing in the Leinster fuball....
Last of the choc-ices there now

Seems that motion was passed last night at the Galway county convention to go looking into Munster if they don't get a fair crack of the whip in Leinster.

It'll be interesting to see how Croke Park approaches this.

Leinster won't accept the Galway minors and u21s

Ulster?

Collateral damage is all Ulster hurling is if/when Galway move lock, stock and barrel into either Leinster or Munster.

Major issues with the current structure in hurling need addressed, but the traditional hurling counties won't make them for the betterment of hurling.

The drawbridge keeps getting pulled up for developing counties.

Know Ards is where the 3 strong hurling clubs in Down are but how many hurling clubs in Down and Antrim?

10 to 12 hurling clubs in Down across the various grades. Antrim would be looking at 30 odd hurling clubs I would hazard a guess at.

The whole championship/league structures are pathetic and it's blatantly obvious to anyone with a clue that they need to be torn up. The league is a meaningless competition to win, and that's reflected in attendances and semi-competitive atmosphere at the games. The provincial championship/ qualifier system is uneven, boring and poorly attended. Munster Championship attendances have gotten as bad as Leinster. We need one well-structured competition run over a set period, where each county is guaranteed a few meaningful games against teams at their own level and this will benefit the club game too.

Link league performance to an championship, with maybe groups of 3/4. Ranking for league placings. Top two in.each group into knockout phase.
teams know what placings will get them into which group. No need for championship draw then. Makes it results based
