O'Toole's have been in a slow downward spiral for a few years now. Like many of the Northside clubs of the past. A big problem they would have would be population, the area around where they are based would have aged a lot over the past 10/15yrs and there are not that many schools near them that they could recruit through. They are not fielding teams at many underage levels at present and have not been in recent years so I think it is finally starting to show. A few country lads kept them competitive in recent years but that can only last for so long.
