Larkin was a remarkable team player and very underrated. Couldn’t make Kilkenny team at minor and only made 21’s in his last year. Got his break with Kilkenny when James Stephens won club All Ireland in 2005 and never looked back since. With Mick Fennelly injured too its a great chance for Tipperary to make their mark next year


#344

Comerford: 6 all irelands and was an auto choice when Taggy was in and out of the team.
Id have taggy at 8 behind tJR but aheah of fennelly and WW. Dj 12th


#345

DJ no. 1…you can throw the rest in behind him.


#346

I’d have Richie Hogan well ahead of Power.

Well ahead


#347

I think Power (and Jackie Tyrrell) are playing in the Leinster Intermediate Final this weekend?!


#348

Just Power is playing with Carrickshock. Jackies club is James Stephens.

They will win it too as Celbridge are missing their best player as he got sent off the last day.


#349

Henry for me is/was No. 1


#350

Of course - my bad! Kiltale not too enamoured with the Kilkenny men after the semi either. Carrickshock were in KK senior final in '13 and only relegated for the one year. Hard to see them lose.

Good to see Ratoath in junior final too. … eh Alan?! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


#351

Maybe Cuala should have played them in a challenge :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


#352

Richie and John Power for Carrickshock (Richie coming off the bench)
Also Michael Rice, John Tennyson, John Dalton

Appeal in the morning for the Celbridge player who was sent off the last day


#353

I was wondering which ones you thought were only great when they were 10 points up


#354

Thanks RMH - Meant Tennyson earlier not Tyrell - that was reason for brain freeze! The lad was poetry in motion … :relieved:


#355

Larkin a huge loss for Kilkenny


#356

Yep. Tipp should dominate the next two years or longer.


#357

Only 32 as well, like Bart says, always seemed to get vital scores for them.


#358

Brillant player larkin.fetch solo and score sealed 2011 final.point over the black spot in 2014 final while runing towards the sideline was inspirational.class act.


#359

What think ye of Con O’Callaghan ? Shooting the lights out a the moment. I saw ger cunningham was at the Leinster final. Probably went home crying


#360

Con and Cronin would add a lot to the setup. I know Cronin’s striking has looked laboured at county level in the past but i think he’s sharpened it up and he has a great engine.


#361

Not convinced on the latter. This is winter hurling.

Con-Kilkenny-Costello would have won us the AI in 2013 in a canter.
