Firstly, well done to St Brendan’s
Secondly, rushing to conclusions a bit? (Ye’d C&R and Crinkle with ye)
Thirdly, unfortunately, the programme didn’t have each players’ club underneath them. Just wondering could you tell us the clubs that each player was from?(Just to see what Crinkle and C&R have coming through, not a dig, I’ve no clue of the breakdown)
Fourthly, and lastly, I commend Birr GAA on obtaining grant funding to improve SBP’s playing surface and ‘performance standards.’

I did say St.Brendans...not rushing at all we had 8 starters from birr and 2 subs from birr so 10 lads from the club getting success on the playing field which was great. The goalie was from crinkle and the other 6 starters were from carrig.

From an Offaly perspective it’s great. Particularly 6 lads from C&R. I think I saw a picture on twitter of them.
Mark O’Brien and Freeman were excellent, as was Cormac Kenny off the bench.
There’s 9 C&R in total so there’s 16 between Birr and Crinkle.
Do Crinkle have many on the panel?

Thought it was a cracking game of hurling with Birr finishing stronger to see it out. With some super points scored for a neutral it was a good game. I think the football last week seemed to take a lot out of the legs from the ballinamere team.
Would like to know who were the 6 from Carrig on the team.

May I also add that I’m ashamed that I have spelt Crinkill wrong all my life, thus apologising to any of its natives on this forum.

O Brien scored 3 outstanding points in the firat half....
On the field today the only one who might have something to offer at County level at the moment would be freeman.
Great win and badly needed.

How is it that Birr and CRC gaels are their own clubs at every grade but brought together at under 21? Surely CRC gaels should be fielding on their own at the B grade and a town the size of Birr should have a huge pick? CRC have had minor teams coming through for a good while now and should not be joining with Birr to field at 21 grade.

Carrig and Riverstown and Crinkill are in the parish of St Brendans as are Birr. Its essentially a parish team. Something similar to Rhode/Croghan forming St Michaels in football. Congrats to St Brendans on there win. Hard luck to Balinamere but they can look back on a hugely successful year in both codes.

But why at only one grade do two club come together to form one team when both teams have minor teams coming through as stand alone teams? How many players are losing out? They don't join up at any other grade from u8 to adult. So why 21?

Before the formation of Crinkle any players from that area always hurled underage and senior with Birr. Im not 100% certain but when Carrig and Riverstown hadnt numbers to field underage teams before the formation of CRC they done the same and played there hurling with Birr. As to why they are still together at u21 level only thats for somebody closer to the set up to answer.

Am nearly sure the durrow lads were playing football for tullamore, they had a couple on the team that won it out.

Fair play to St Brendan and Ballinamere on what seemed to be a cracker..

Just wondering if any of these lads from both teams are in on the county panel?
