Adult Hurling League 9 (AHL9) 2018


#61

Cuala won by about 12.


#62

Wild geese 5-20 kilmacud 3-7


#63

Isles beat Realt to win their first league match in over a year that was not a walkover


#64

The Geese are flying!


#65

They got a good preseason done. Isles lent them their facilities at the beginning of the year


#66

Doing good. First year having a second team in a league. Both scoil and cuala are way above everyone else in this.


#67

Great to see. Where are you picking up players? New developments in the area resulting in new adults, or underage?


#68

Underage. We had a few minor teams the past few years.


#69

Great to see. Progressing up from the bottom league will create a great bond.


#70

Our first team are in div 8 and are top of it. Hopefully get promoted to div 7.


#71

Pats beat crokes by 6.


#72

Wild geese beat na fianna on mon.


#73

O’Dwyers 4-14 Realt Dearg 1-10


#74

Fair play to Realt Dearg for fielding 3 teams. I noticed their 1st was making progress last year but all 3 seem to be lingering around the bottom of their leagues this season. Is their model sustainable? No underage and they don’t play in their their catchment area.


#75

good to see dwyers getting a few wins, they nearly went under last year


#76

Is that their only hurling team at adult?


#77

yes, were operating in much higher divisons maybe 10 years back I reckon they were in div5 at one stage. John OLeary played a lot of hurling with Dwyers in his time


#78

Yeah I played against his brother. They had a decent Junior team at the time. Was it Declan? I remember going out there many years ago before the motorway was built. It was a tight enough game and O’Dwyers brought on a mad auld lad with a beard to mark me. He ran onto the pitch screaming … It was my first and last game there :joy::joy::joy:


#79

:joy::joy: Class!

I didn’t know O’D had a hurling team at all!


#80

Togged out myself for first game of hurling since minor or maybe even U16. Bit of crack.

Realt Dearg were struggling for numbers given their 3 teams being out but fair play to them for making the game.

Brother is Dennis
