Leixlip were relegated to Senior last year. Confey are indeed senior.

It does however have large immigrant population from Dublin who don't integrate with the locals, keeping themselves largely to their middle calls ghettos.

A Dub buying a starter home in Leixlip is the very same as, say, Lucan.

There would be a very small percentage who are mad into GAA and would straight away head up to the GAA club, go the adult team matches, etc.
So 95% wouldn't cross the door of the GAA club until the kids come along. Then most would bring their kids (at least a few times!) to the local soccer or GAA club or both.

You have lost your sense of humour Hound.
Maybe so. I'd just read the anti-rugby thread before this!

Ha! The inverted snobs, you better not tell them where MDMA, Jack Mc, Eoin Murchin etc went to school. Their heads might explode as they digest that knowledge.....

Senior:
1. Offaly v Wicklow
2. Q-F 1. v Laois
3. Carlow v Wexford
4. Q-F 3. v Kildare
5. Westmeath v Longford
6. Q-F 5. v Meath
7. Q-F Louth v Dublin
Semi finals
8. 2. v 4.
9. 6. v 7.
Final
8. v 9.


Dublin quarter-finals on Oct 12/13:

Castleknock v Thomas Davis
- CK with CKK expected to win this one. But I'd expect whoever comes through to bow out at the semi final stage.

Kilmacud v Clontarf
- While Jack Flash is with the underdogs, Crokes should win handy. Overall favourites for the title.

Ballyboden v NaFianna
- Tie of the round. NaF knocked out star studded Ballymun, but Boden have absolutely stormed the league this year (14 wins and a draw from 15 games), so are marginal favourites. Expected to be tight and the winners will be genuine challengers.

St Judes v St Vincents
- Vins favs, but Judes well capable of an upset. Expect Vins to pull through, but I don't expect Vins to win the title.

I think the latter two might be on TV on the Saturday evening.

Portlaoise v Killeshin in the Senior final in Laois. Killeshin's first ever final at Senior, so Portlaoise are hot favourites and should have enough. Not going as well as previous years though, so don't think they'll be contending for a Leinster.

Moorefield v Sarsfields SFC final in Kildare  ::)

Moorefield going for three in a row. Between them they have won the last 6.

Neither will do much in Leinster.

Just watched the video online. Lucky no deaths but a number of bad injuries I can imagine.

No more than a thousand people at the Dublin SFC Q/F double header in Parnell Park. Probably less than 10% of the combined membership of the 4 clubs.

Great to see all those € paying off in growing the game. Blue wave my hole, actions and consequences.

Dublin is a county of Big Time Charlies

Can remember them playing Clan in an All Ireland semi in the Hyde many moons ago.

Luckily for them they don't have to depend on club gate receipts. Sponsors and the GAA take up the tab!  :-\

Outside of the Dublin champions, first time winners don’t tend to win Leinsters. Usually takes 2/3 county wins for a team to shift their focus.
