Minors out on Saturday evening against Westmeath at O'Moore Park. Anyone see any sign of a team anywhere?

Should be a good team, a mixture of two pretty good development squads. For different reasons, there's a few lads not on board.

I thought last year's team looked very well prepared. Hopefully, if the player quality is better this year and the same level of preparation, you'd hope that they'd be competitive.

Congrats to Trumera who managed to produce 3 players worthy of a place on the panel. Very disappointing to see only 1 from Portlaoise.

Some given the ultimatum

 choose minor football over hurling


Young Burke from the Harps,Critchely from Portlaoise are 2 that would have added to it,but thatís what your get when Hurling is actively marginalized in 2/3rds of the county

I didn't realise that there had been ultimatums given. That's disappointing, if in no way unsurprising. I wonder what the reaction would have been if the hurling management had given those young lads ultimatae. Different I'd guess.

I was talking about good hurlers from hurling clubs who didn't commit.

Just said Iíd pop in and say that dual players are accommodated this year and last year in Offaly. Not preaching or anything, but we were very competitive in the hurling anyway, while decent at the football. It didnít seem to hinder either team, to tell you the truth.

Well, I seem to recall they beat our minor hurlers last year, didn't they?

Did they? I thought we were in a group with Wexford Dublin and Kilkenny?

Yes, as the bottom team in that group, they played the top team in the second group - which was Offaly. They lost that game (though I can't remember the score) and that's why they're not in the top group this year - they failed to make the provincial semi-final.

Thanks for the clarification Burdizzo. I missed that match for some reason.

To go back to the point, I donít think itís helpful for anyone to be giving ultimatums to 16 or 17 year olds.

Lost to eventual All-Ireland finalists by five points.
By the way, ye can have Delaney back anytime ye want. The ****.

Its also what you get when the Hurling manager is so anti football he couldn't accom those players or make it easier to be part of both codes...

Or so I'm told
