I wonder if a recent social media video of a player on a certain team doing something they shouldnt being doing on a night out doenst get as much traction in the media because they are not high profile enough, imagine a player from Dublin or Tyrone caught doing the same, national news, a but sure the hurlers, lovely fellas , role models etc.

;D

This aged well.

T**ser.

There are a few things of dubious source this guy has posted before if he's the same person I am thinking of...

Who TheGreatest? Who claims James Horan got 70k from Mayo from a 'source' without backing it up with one shred of evidence?

The discussion will only happen if the GAA pump millions & millions into Limerick GAA.

I would say we are safe enough

Do they get any more than Dublin do funding wise in the hurling? (They may do - I don't know but just putting it out there).

2 out of 3 isn't a sustained period of dominance. (Though to be fair I am worried that could happen)

Where people worried about Kilkenny’s dominance?
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

Personally i have no problem with sustained periods of dominance, i am biased of course.

It happens in all sports. Counties etc. Nothing lasts forever etc etc,.

My opinion this current Limerick team will go on to at least another 4 or so.

funding from Croke Park?

I'd say they get much less as there'd be nowhere near the same number of GDO's in Limerick as there would be in Dublin.

JP and their development squads and senior hurlers through Sporting Limerick probably isn't on the same plane as AIG, but probably the next best going in the GAA world.

I wouldn't have thought so.

I don't think great teams coming along and dominating is something that is an issue. Kilkenny in their era just had a lot of great players. Sure there were periods when TJ Reid couldn't get on, allbeit he was young, but look at him now.

I might be wrong but I don't think Limerick will ever have the same drive or focus as the great Kilkenny team at it's peak under Cody.
In counties that aren't as used to success they are quicker to drop their standards after winning an All Ireland.
