I reckon Carlow might beat Louth.

Laois fairly squashed that bubble. Louth will have too much for them. A good news story but they have still a long way to go.
Not so sure about that. Louth played like a middle of the road Div 4 team this spring. Seven games seven defeats, scored on average 11 points per game and conceded 20 per game.

Last summer Louth only beat Wicklow of Div 4 narrowly and were well bet by Meath and Longford.
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

Some interesting ties before the Dubs get involved

Laois v Wexford will be close in wexford and if Laois win them and westmeath could be a cracker in portlaoise

Offaly should get over wicklow and it will be a mssive thing to host the Dubs in O'Connor park for them .

Carlow and Louth is a real even game and should get a good crowd in Portlaoise!

Longford could shock the Royals in Pearse stadium.

Kildare Should win their two games and get to the leinster final ...

Maybe just maybe they can keep it competitive this year!

Leinster football at the moment


Kilkenny - Still missing in action
Laois - Somehow allowed themselves to fall to Division 4. 
Wexford - Division 3 was a level above them
Louth - Back to Division 3 with a bang
Carlow - Promoted to Division 3 but can they stay there?
Offaly - Good tradition but Division 3 is their level now
Wicklow - Bottom of Division 4
Westmeath - Division 3 side that likes to sample all Divisions
Longford - Division 3 team that loves the championship qualifiers
Kildare - Division 2 side that are out of their depth whenever they get promoted to Division 1   
Meath - Division 2 side that doesn't know if they are coming or going
Dublin - The best team in Ireland in the weakest province

Someone had a chart a while ago about championship attendances and they are back to 2001 levels when the qualifiers were first introduced.
The LFC is in very bad shape and the standard in Ulster isn't great either.
The GAA is very complacent .

I think Dublin could cause one or two surprises in Leinster this year. The draw suits them.

If Offaly beat Dublin it'll blow the championship wide open.
If you were any use you'd be playing.

I like that Dinny didn't even bother to 'preview' the potential Offaly Dublin Q/F :)

Hopefully Tullamore.

As with all Leinster venue choices, Dublin are only 1/12th to be blamed, if it goes somewhere else. We don't get a bigger say. For example, Nowlan Park would be a perfect neutral venue for a Leinster semi involving Dublin, but all the non-competing counties will always pick Croker because it generates extra money for their coffers.

If Leinster Council move the Semi Final you'd have John Costello  belly aching about the thousands who wont be able to see their team in action......
2018- 2 Cupeens won, 2 to go.

Maybe just maybe they can keep it competitive this year!

Offaly got f*cked over in more than one way. Were drawn out first denoting home advantage. If Offaly beat Wicklow, they were also to get home advantage. Both games are on in O’Moore Park.  :-[
Loose by name, Loose by nature 😉

Our county board keep bending over like this. Why not fight for games in one of the better provincial grounds?
