#463

Is colm mc nally gone


#464

For those who say leagye doesn’t matter, is it a coincidence 4 of the top 5 in the league are playing champo semi finals this weekend ??


#465

Ye 100 percent league is ur learning ground and momentum builder.


#466

Gone to Meath


#467

Fair going for him from being over a team relegated from Divison 1 in Dublin to getting an Inter County Coaching Gig…


#468

Sounds about right!


#469

For M**th that is!


#470

1 of them is in the B


#471

Has a good past record though and is reputedly an excellent coach - incl coaching his team to All Ireland Inter final last year where they lost to Westport


#472

Very tight at the bottom still , I reckon Olaf’s will go with castleknock as I can’t see them picking up maximum points from their final two games ! Would it be a shock if slys or brigids we’re relegated ?


#473

I’m more shocked that Brigids are still there to be honest


#474

They don’t have anything coming through either really


#475

Might not have teams but I guaranteethey have some good players coming through. Going through a difficult patch but still a div1 side could beat most on their day


#476

Fair enough but don’t really agree that they could beat anyone on their day , they’ve been irrelevant in the senior champo the last few years and starting to slip in the league


#477

Had a good crop come through 2 years ago I think, should keep them afloat for a while. Not sure how else they are doing at underage.


#478

Can anyone explain why Judes have to play Ballymun in a vital league match the week before their county final?


#479

Why shouldn’t they? Perfect preparation.

Chances are they’ll get it called off if they want.


#480

It should go ahead as scheduled. If not, league will be delayed until December with 1 team in Leinster.
Jude’s can rest players obviously but that’s the luck of timing.
Ballinteer needs points and fixed to play a post championship Vincents with nothing to play for as top 4 secured so they’ll probably field weakened team.
Olaf’s need 2 from 2 but with Plunketts safe, Olaf’s could face 2 teams with nothing to play for.
I think top 4 will be Crokes, boden, TD and Vincents.
2 to go down with Castleknock could be Syls and brigids.


#481

Don’t think we’d fancy that sort of a challenge heading into the biggest game in years. Talk is that Board are refusing to change


#482

Marys have to play towers this weekend and their in the b final next week , a good opportunity to give the lads who don’t get much game a run , surely Jude’s have enough players to accomadate :joy:
