Well, have a look at the starting 15, and particularly the subs used.
I wasn’t at the game, but something odd about the team picked.

A very successful underage team all the way up along is suddenly strengthened by 4/5 players including at least 3 IC players. You wouldn’t expect them to underperform in a final, right?
The greatest trick the devil ever pulled.......

They’re 16 year old kids for f**king sake. Grow up a bit yourself perhaps.

Maybe  Abbeyleix underperformed due to the fact 12/13 played a very intense football match the week before.  There good lads both sides leave it there, hopefully they all stay playing.  That’s the bigger problem.

Serious respect to the harps on a great day yesterday. Goes to show the value of hard work at grass roots level. Mossy must be a happy man. On another note am i right in saying the harps had only 1 representative on this year's minor team against the gaels 6. Something seriously flawed with our county selection if this is the case.

Jesus there’s some amount of pettiness here.

And where did I (or anyone) attack any 16 year old kids?

No one accused you of attacking anyone.

16 year olds are very likely to underperform on any given day, give them a break.

The Harps had a well thought out and well executed plan even though Abbeyleix/Ballinakill were roaring hot favorites going into the game.

I wouldn’t be too hard on the amalgamation,those chaps were probably a little bit complacent based on results all year,what happened to them will stand them in good stead for the rest of their careers
