Leinster SFC and SHC Draws 2017

Postby frankthetank » Thu Oct 13, 2016 9:04 pm

Who would we like in the draw folks?

Considering we cant get any of the Leinster Semi-Finalists from 2016 in the football draw Id like a crack
at Laois. Anyone but Longford would be nice anyways.

As for the hurling, a q-final vs the round robin runner up would be nice and a semi-final vs Wexford would nearly be the ideal draw.

Getting Dublin, Galway or Wexford in the hurling draw (as opposed to a round robin team) would guarantee avoiding the round robin in 2018. I'd be happy with that. The round robin fecks up club fixtures

Fair point regarding the 2018 round robin.

Regarding the club championship in 2017 I saw an email today saying there will be two rounds of club hurling championship in April/May next year if the present club structure is retained.

Found Robin team in quarter final and a win there would see us play Dublin or Galway in semi final. Tough draw to get to
Leinster Final. The Quarter-Final will be away too, providing its not Kerry.

Leix or Wasteneath (most likely). Bah!

Dublin v Galway will likely be in Tellamore though. Incidentally, Wexford v Kilkinny will be in Wexford.

Offaly v Westmeath in Tullamore in the football will be tasty after the events in Mullingar this year. The Offaly players should be psyched off their heads for this!! And a semi vs the Dubs awaits!!

I presume Offaly v Westmeath in the fupple will be in Tellamore in keeping with the ongoing home and away arrangement between the counties.

Thats what I would expect. Should draw a decent crowd. We owe them one bigtime after last year.

I thought there was a mention of that last night by Joe Brolly . If Pat Flanagan was not ratified at the Co. Board meeting, it would have made the news. If true it would be like Oscar Wilde!

Dessie Dolan has Westmeath beating Offaly next year.
