Actually says alot more about the standard, galway were shite and have been for awhile that's what you get when jumping the gun appointing a manager who has no credentials at management of a senior intercounty team

Dublin are no better they just about got over the line

Antrim are just about surviving haven't shown any improvement since retaining thier status

Agreed, the standard in Leinster is on the floor nowadays. Not one of the Leinster teams would finish in the top 3 in Munster.

If Offaly can get back up we could stay in Leinster for the foreseeable.

Carlow's relegation confirms that this year's Joe McDonagh cup winners will have home fixtures against Galway and Antrim, and away fixtures against Dublin, Kilkenny and Wexford in next year's Leinster Senior hurling championship. (The reverse of Carlow's fixtures this year.)

It's hard not to read that and think that the one fixture that sticks out like a sore thumb is not having to go to Corrigan Park. Antrim travelling to Portlaoise/Tullamore next year is a nice reward for the winner of Saturday's showdown.

Only a few sections open for sale at the moment, the usual Ticketmaster playbook.
I'd give it until the weekend to see. Even with the Leinster final on, they should be any amount of options of seats/sections

They aren't planning on opening the top decks as the attendance will be modest.
If Wexford had got there, it would be a decent crowd. Dublin and Kilkenny, not so much.

Does anyone think our Senior players envy the support the under 20s get?

I say they understand rather than envy. I'd also add that anyone whose upset with not getting a ticket should buy one for the joe mcdonagh final. Support your county not just a particular team.

A lot of disappointment supporters including myself and the kids.

Luckily we have Croke Park Saturday week to look forward to, would be great to outnumber the Laois shower and drive the lads home to the Joe McDonagh final.
Not often we get a day out in HQ

I got 3 tickets in s304 of the cusack yesterday but see very limited availability now. I’d say 30-35k will be it including the two games. They always try to sell the poorer seats first so hang on for a bit and the better tickets will come out.
