Re: Joe McDonagh cup

Firstly, best wishes to all the players and management in the coming weeks. They have been preparing hard no doubt over the last few weeks since our game and that can't be forgotten either along with some club action. I think the Joe mcdonagh cup is a great competition and pitched at the right level...

Re: NHL Division 1B 2019

I don't like beating the same drum, but I wasn't the only one who noticed the poor home crowd there yesterday - mentioned by some pundits in papers etc. This is not the players fault, nor the management's, nor the county board etc. Surely when your county needs ye after all the good days, he d come ...

Re: NHL Division 1B 2019

[quote="llkj"]Question for you Old Yellar, has Carlow done much to grow the game in and around Carlow town in recent times? I know there is a hurling club there, but from what I know they are usually weak and struggling to survive. In a county with around 60K population, if Carlow are to have any ch...

Re: NHL Division 1B 2019

I think this could be a good thing for your hurling in the short term. I 've been on this forum a good number of years and it's been nothing only room and gloom and talking about beatings and where we are going etc etc. Being in a lower division might allow us to actually implement a long term plan ...

Re: NHL Division 1B 2019

Hi all. it was a huge battle today and as a carlow man i m hugely relieved to have got over the line. As a man with links to some of the offaly players/living there for a dozen years and to see them all wanting to do nothing only wear an offaly jersey from 12/13 years of age, it was hard to see them...

Re: Relegation final: it's all down to attitude

I suppose Division 2 survival was always going to come down to the relegation playoff anyway. And here we are. Still, it could be worse, and the win last week in Carlow had brought with it a modicum of optimism. Better to be facing Carlow like this, rather than having lost a battle on a filthy day ...

Re: NHL Division 1B 2019

A Carlow perspective... So it comes down to this! Really looking forward to sundays game as from our side of things it has the potential to be a huge day for hurling in our county. A win would not only keep us safe but the prospect of a q final would be great from a supporters point of view as it wo...

Re: Walsh Cup 2019…ish

Ah, I wouldn't mind James, he talks before he thinks the odd time but a passionate man.. Our lads happy with the win yesterday. A few lads coming back from injury and a few out still, but we had a strong enough panel out. I think we ll be targeting the last 2 games to stay up. A lot of shadow boxing...

Re: O’Byrne Cup 2019…ish

Hi all. From a Carlow perspective we d have been disappointed to loose - not that it mattered in the competition but with a decent team out and having a lot of possession, the one point difference was too tight. Good game - first under new rules I ve seen. We possibly are further down the line in te...

Re: Leinster Club Hurling

Great win for Coolderry over those absolute knackers! Love the forum, love Offaly Hurling. Am not an MLR man, but from a neighbouring club who love nothing more than scelping MLR! But would like to point out that they wouldnt be regarded as a dirty team at all down here, too soft at times if anythi...

Hey, I m from carlow! You were the ones who didn't know oisin kelly was with lit! Not so long ago carlow it only had 15 for some of DJs first league games. As for brian Lohan and especially Davy fitz doing it for the benefit of their County, you are sadly mistaken! You and I know that there's a grea...

Re: 2017 Walsh Cup

As for Fitzgibbon/county thing, well I think one poster said to look at the ul situation - Clare mentor, multiple Clare scholarships! Ucc too are dominated by cork/Munster players. Some college mentors tend to look after their own. Also some will let some high profile players away with a bit more th...
