Adult Hurling League 2 (AHL2) 2019


#41

He was over them last year as well.


#42

Plunketts trainer from last year is gone.


#43

Thought he only came in late last year? Still think he’ll do well, especially if they’ve young lads coming in.


#44

No he was there from the start of last year or definitely at least this time last year anyway


#45

Finbarrs second team seems to be high up the leagues which provides a good base for feeding players through. Any team serious about competing, or getting up to AHL1 needs their second squad to be competing at AHL4 at a minimum IMO. When lads get injured etc on the first team they need their second squad to be able to transition as quickly as possible.


#46

Plunketts players have been involved with successful underage Colleges teams for last couple of years , they are still playing unlike some who fall away , there’s some excellent talent come through and I’d suggest over next few years the boys from navan road are more likely to be successful in the small ball than big ball


#47

I’d second that I think they ll finish top 2 and progress to the final of the Senior B champ if not win it outright. All depending on the progress of a few young lads coming through, if not this year they will come strong within the next 2/3 years and step up to Senior A in my opinion.


#48

They aren’t in Senior B this year


#49

Brennan and Boland were in charge of them last year. Plunketts will be in the top 4 again this season.

Not sure O Tooles will run away with it as mentioned. The most the league has been won by in the last 5-6 years is 2 points


#50

Not to mention the host of country lads Brennan always brings in from DIT or wherever his connections are.


#51

Personally I don’t think it’s good with the imports. You can’t beat home grown youth in the long term for a club


#52

Start of the league a week away any predictions


#53

AHL2 looks very competitive. Faughs to go up. Will be interesting to see how O’Tooles do. I don’t remember them being in AHL2. They should be in the mix to go up, but it depends on the mood in the camp.


#54

O Tooles beat faughs handy enough last year so for me o Tooles and one from Finbarrs,Faughs and Plunkets


#55

I noticed that Faughs picked up a few on the transfer list from other counties over the Winter Months, some of them are decent Hurling clubs so if a few of these materialise they could be even a step further than last year. I would have them as favourites for this.


#56

Not like them at all


#57

First round of fixtures


#58

I will go for Erins Isle, Barrog, Thomas Davis, Fionbarra, O’Tooles and Faughs
All home wins except with Fionbarra


#59

I think Setanta will beat Isles in the local Derby.
Scoil to beat Barrog.
Toss of a coin between TD and Syls - I’ll go for TD on their building momentum.
Agree on the rest.


#60

I think Setanta without Dubs there for taking, home win just…a nice start for Isles…

Barrog to beat Scoil

think Slys might grab the only away win,
