Alan Brogan had a good piece about how the Dublin lads were a lot more doninant at U21 in Leinster than minor due to the fact a lot of the U21's were playing in a very competitive senior club scene rather than training exclusively in development squads!!

Yeah, I made the very same point on another thread.
Dinny had been saying that Dubs, Kildare and Meath tend to be even enough at minor level, but Dubs tend to improve heaps up to U21 level, and of course he was alluding, as he does, that it was because of the money the GAA are giving us!

But most of the minors are dropped off the Dubs panels for a year or two before getting back into the U21, and even when on the U20/21 panel, there's not a huge amount of training done at county level (until the business end when it ramps up of course) and so the lads are left with their clubs for the most part.

Nope, Hound I have been consistent on inorganic and organic growth and have often cited Dublin's strong culture around senior inter-county football and their very strong club scene.

But let's be frank here, inter-county players are well looked after to play Dublin club as well by the clubs, although if they had to pay their GDO out of their own pocket that might cut that out as well.

We will never see the figures but does anyone no believe that Dublin spend more money on their u20s that any other county!!!

Won and won well yesterday but still hard to know how good this Mayo U20 team is. They had advantage yesterday of playing a Roscommon team that was missing key players and had come through two tough games the last two weeks. Mayo minors 2015,2016,2017 were less than great well beaten by Galway in each year however minor football is a development grade and players and teams can improve once they play adult football. Mayo had a number of players yesterday that won the Intermediate All Ireland with their club Westport last year and it was no surprise to see most of those players stand out yesterday.

Thanks Rosie, although I was told Oisin Mullin had accountancy on Monday in the Leaving Cert so if he liked that subject as much as I did he would be celebrating on the double if he damaged the shoulder of his writing hand!! :D

Best of luck to the Mayo u17s today. Cracking day for a game it must be said.

We started brightly with a very early goalife but Leitrim gave us our fill in that firate half.
A few half time subs and positional switches and we took off in the second half which was over as a contest long before the end.
2018- 2 Cupeens won, 2 to go.

So that makes a Galway Ross final, if Ross beat  Sligo  is it..

The round Robin has helped develop players / managersvacross the board instead of the brutal old system

Sligo, Leitrim and Mayo haven't looked too developed..
